Last week I visited, what many have come to realise, is the hottest new sandwich shop in the city – Earls Sandwich Co. And I couldn’t wait to go and experience it for myself.

Earls is located in the heart of Stockbridge, making it very accessible to the locals. They serve brooklyn-inspired, freshly made sandwiches. The restaurant officially opened its doors last month (September 2021) and has already become popular with the capital’s foodies.

One of the first things I noticed was the delightful atmosphere. The inside is cosy with a funky, modern interior. and a great choice of music playing in the background.

When it comes to the food you can choose a range of interesting combinations and flavours. It feels like everyone will find something to tickle their taste buds. From sandwich fillings with meat, like coronation spiced pork bangers, spiced fried chicken thighs or pork schnitzel, to veggie options like the long braised portobello mushroom.

I decided to go for the “Unusually bubble” – charred broccoli, cheddar and gruyere bubble and squeak, fried egg, marmite mayo and chip sticks. It was a great choice indeed. Finally, no more boring veggie sandwich options! The food is mouth watering – it seemed to just melt in my mouth. I was positively surprised with the meal size too. They serve big portions that could easily feed two hungry mouths!

The service received was superb! The staff made me feel very welcome and I will definitely return to try some of their other specialities from the menu.

Earls is a fantastic restaurant with excellent food and service. Definitely, a go-to place when you are in Stockbridge. Perfect to grab a quick lunch on the go. Earls has instantly become one of my favourite spots.
