so ex-Zipcar office becomes Pret a Manger (opposite Sainsbury)... how many ice cold sandwiches do the residents of SE1 need?

Hahaha - that made me laugh on this grey Monday morning. Do wish there were some shops which are actually useful for local residents. Another Pret / takeaway/ sandwich bar certainly isn't.

Agreed and it is the uniformity of the High Street that is rather depressing. But, Suziq, what kind of shops DO we need in Borough High Street?

Any suggestions, anyone?

I'd love to have some clothes shops on/around BHS. All the food, schools and estate agents is a bit depressing given how many people actually live around here.

Yes it would be nice to have some browsing!

Give me Pret over scruffy looking offices or derelict empty buildings any day. Of course it would be ideal to have greater variety and independents, but no-one else is taking a chance on BHS so I for one welcome Pret!

Shame its not an EAT....always prefer EAT to Pret...but I think that's another discussion.

Riva by Borough Tube does far superior sandwiches and hot food. Always service with a smile and a nice family run business. Ditto the Giggling Sausage in Great Suffolk Street and also the Blackfriars Cafe. No connections, I just like a proper mug of tea!

ah se1, walk 5mins in any direction & you will find tesco and pret...

If a Pret member of staff doesn't demonstrate at least 6 "Behaviours" when serving, should you risk eating the sandwich?

Prêt à Manger is french for 'ready to eat'
As of January 2012, there were 230 UK shops, 168 in London.
Unlike many other fast food outlets, Pret a Manger refuses to franchise.

Pret a Manger promotes an internal culture as described in a leaflet entitled “Pret Behaviours.”
Team Members should practise around six Behaviours, Managers ten, and the company’s executives should be able to practise all of them
