About

When you visit a Birleys outlet, you become part of our story. It’s a tale of handmade, deli-style sandwiches and innovative food concepts, using only the finest ingredients and offering plenty of choice.

You expect us to know where we source our products from and to be knowledgeable about the different breads and ingredients on offer. Each new menu choice, store opening and exciting food concept represents another chapter in our story.

Our history

Our history

We’ve been the home of the finest breakfast and lunch sandwiches, platters, buffets, soups and salads since the early 1980s. 

During that time, we’ve listened to our customers and worked closely with our carefully selected suppliers to bring you delicious food concepts that are constantly evolving in tune with changing tastes, new products and seasonal produce. 

Ethos

At Birleys we don’t pre-package your sandwiches or salads: we wait until you tell us what you want, then we get going. Yes, it takes a little longer than a grab-and-go sandwich, but that’s what makes us unique.

We’re proud of the care and attention we give to ensuring you get the sandwich you want; the way you want it.

It’s an approach that has seen the Birley network of highly individual stores continue to expand as word of our top-quality food and the professionalism or our teams has spread. It’s also ensured that we’ve won steadfastly loyal customers, as well as many accolades and awards, including the British Sandwich Association’s Specialist Sandwich Bar Chain of the Year not just once, but four times.
