I called in a hurry for a sandwich or salad. I couldn't find the Greek salad I usually have, which was disappointing so I chose a tuna salad sandwich. When I got back to the office I found the sandwich was wet and soggy. Shame, it was not cheap! Service was efficient but rather cold.

Having walked past this place and it always looking busy but never having been in I thought I would give it a go today!! I realise now it always looks busy because there is no organisation so everyone is just in there in chaos! I ordered a panini from the and waited for it to be cooked, it would make... More

When I first came here, about five years ago, on a recommendation, I remember waiting to be served by a busy but friendly team, and I remember thinking the sandwich was pretty good (but didn't live up to the hype from my friend Gareth). This time there was just guy serving, no queue (it was 11.30, not lunchtime), the ingredients... More

I was shocked at the lack of hygiene in this sandwich bar. Two men were making sandwiches and collecting payments. No washing of hands after handling money and were not wearing disposable gloves. Regardless of what sandwich was being made, we were in a queue so observed several orders being made the same cloth wiped the knife and same cloth... More

I used to buy my lunch from Sandwhich Sandwhich on Baldwin street but recently got a new job so decided to try phillpots as it was closer. The shop is a mess and full of pre made sandwhiches the meat it dry and they have a rubbish selection of treats, fillings and hot sandwhiches. I'd rather walk the extra 10... More

Ordered, what I believed to be a fair selection of different sandwiches for our meeting today, for over 63£ plus an additional 7£ for their taxi delivery I was presented with what can only be described as a rip off. Some tiny basic sandwich pieces, presented awfully (I had the doubtful pleasure of watching the driver rearranging them on the... More

I was working in an office just around the corner from Philpotts and had noticed the place wen I walked to the office from Bristol Temple Meads station, so I thought I would give it a go at lunchtime. When I got to Philpotts, there was quite a queue - ok it was lunchtime, but nevertheless, it was a big... More

Just been charged £5.40 for a take away beef sandwich and a bag of crisps - sandwich had no butter on it and beef was full of fat and gristle. Strongly recommend you go else where!!

I was unfortunately really dissapointed when I visited Philpotts on Victoria street. Both the staff and the food were extremely underwhelming. I wanted a chicken, bacon and avocado baguette but they had run out of baguettes so I had a 'sub roll' which turned out to be very tasteless and when I saw that they were using filling that was...
