“Great tasting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

Good value for money.
Freshly made sandwiches and soups.
They have something for everyone and you can be sure to get fresh food.

“Quick, fresh and tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

Prey always had a great range of fresh food. I had a BBQ pork hot wrap, which had more meat than I expected and was very yummy. They also make great coffee and have a good choice of soft drinks too. The cans of fizzy apple are one of my favourites

“Castle street staff are very welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

As with any Pret shop you know what your going to get.

The staff also make you feel welcome.

After a 5 hour train trip, was nice to sit down, as I was there the manager even found a seat for another customer that wanted to eat in

“Quality and Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

I'm in the UK a couple of times every year, primarily Edinburgh and London. When there, I generally grab a sandwich at Pret at least once and I've never been disappointed- Well, that isn't strictly true, as I am very disappointed they no longer offer the 'All Day Breakfast'. But overall, having a place which consistently serves good, fresh and fairly healthy sandwiches is not something to be taken for granted. I only wish Pret had more stores in the States.

I've seen the reviews claiming Pret prices are too high and I have to wonder what some people expect for 2-3 Quid. Have you checked out what McDonald's is charging for their assembly-line manufactured sandwiches lately? Personally, I still find Pret a good value and look forward to my next visit.

“Don't go to the toilet!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

Limited choice for a large pret, especially on a Sunday. Toilets very dirty despite my writing to Pret to complain. Better places to have a sandwich.
