3 out of 5 stars

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Fast food of rare quality: you’ll be pulled in helplessly by the taste, and filled up happily by the portions.

It’s possible that they took the E out of ‘pulled’ and put it in one of their sandwiches. They certainly cram a lot of other stuff in there: flavourful leaves, high-grade tomato salad, tasty coleslaw made with red cabbage, grated cheese…. Plus your choice of sauces including a sprightly salsa verde and a better-than-average barbecue sauce.

But do not be deceived: Pull’d is not a vegetarian sandwich shop. The veggie accompaniments are accessories to pulled pork, beef or chicken in (or on) various bases: breads, wraps, salad and rice. Apart from being slightly under-seasoned, the pork we tried was high-class: juicy, clearly made from a fine porker, generally irresistible. As for prices, the small version costs £4.95, the large £6.45. You might be pushed to finish a large one. I was barely able to finish a small wrap, but couldn’t bring myself to waste a mouthful simply because it tasted so great.  

Bonus for vegetarians: there is also an all-veg option, too. Bonus for everyone: friendly, obliging staff who go out of their way to be helpful.  

Pull’d will surely be treated as a takeaway but you can also pull up a chair. More precisely, a stool at the counters. It’s not the lap of luxury, but power points and USB ports encourage dawdling. When I was there, a young woman settled in with her laptop and gave the impression of being there for the long haul.

Pull’d is just a brioche slider’s throw away from Pret, among other fast-food chains. Why should you go here? Because, apart from a relatively limited choice, the food here beats any chain fare. And a small Pull’d sandwich is a filling meal – which means more bang for your buck. (When was the last time you were unable to finish a sandwich from one of the chains?) Pull’d is a 20-second walk from Mansion House tube. Stroll on over next tjme you’re in the City.
