Bristol Sandwich Shop Awarded Gold By The British Sandwich Association In National Awards


Bristol Institution Sandwich Sandwich has won Gold in the Independent Sandwich Retailer in this year’s Sammies Awards.

Bristol favourite Sandwich Sandwich has picked up a gold award from the British Sandwich and Food to Go Association recognising the sandwich shop in its’ national awards. The Baldwin Street store won the award on a variety of aspects including service, eating experience, product range, hygiene and cleanliness.

The family-run Sandwich Sandwich has been a staple in the west-country city for over 30 years and is well known for its wide selection of high-quality home-made sandwiches.

Situated in the heart of Bristol the shop’s extensive menu largely comes from locally sourced local ingredients. Their sandwiches stuffed full of delicious ingredients prove to be great value for money retailing at around £4. The chilli flatbread drives footfall from further afield thanks to its generous tasty filling and the shop’s soft-boiled Scotch Eggs are legendary.

Chef Nick Kleiner and his wife, Anita originally ran Cotham Sandwich Co. before transforming the shop into Sandwich Sandwich. There are now four Sandwich Sandwich shops across Bristol. In addition to the Baldwin Street flagship store, Temple Way, Clifton and Cotham Hill all boast Sandwich Sandwich shops hugely popular with locals and commuters.

Like all great awards programmes, the Sammies covers every aspect of the sandwich and food to go industry with awards for companies large and small. There is recognition for everything from Best New Sandwich to Marketing and Retail. The Independent Retailer Award takes the Sammies judges around the country looking at the independent sandwich shops.

The mystery shop judges visited Sandwich Sandwich and, aside from scoring top marks in every aspect of the report, the judges’ comments included:

“Very friendly and so busy, full of regular customers. The recipes and combination of ingredients were spot on. Despite being so busy, the service was quick and professional and the staff showed so much passion and knowledge of the sandwiches. With very attractive and appetising displays of food and excellent service standards, Sandwich Sandwich is a very worthy winner.”

Nick at Sandwich Sandwich said:

“It’s great to be recognised with a national award. Sandwich Sandwich is a Bristol institution but to be recognised nationally is such a wonderful accolade for our family-run business.”
