The best sandwiches you can buy from Subway in the UK (Top 7 choices)

If there is one thing we love here in the UK, it's sandwiches. More than perhaps any other nation in the world, our lunchtimes revolve around 2 bits of bread and a filling. When Subway arrived on UK shores, some eyebrows were raised initially (as they always are when American things are introduced in the UK). But it was quickly a success, and now it feels like there is a Subway on every street corner.


Although we can all agree that Subway has been a hit here, one thing we can't seem to agree on is what the best Subway sandwich is. Everyone has their own take, and because of the customisation options that Subway offer, everyone has their own unique preferences when it comes to bread type, sauces (we will add the full list below), and more. But we think there are definitely 7 sandwiches from Subway which are the best of the bunch, and we wanted to highlight them.

Let's get into it:

Subway Sauces UK

Just before we get into the best sandwiches, remember that you can customise with added ingredients (like salad) and sauces. There are 7 subway uk sauces and they work perfectly with almost all of the sandwiches below.

  • Ranch Dressing
  • Subway Vinaigrette
  • Sweet Chipotle
  • Deli Mustard
  • Caesar Dressing
  • Creamy Italian Dressing
  • Thousand Island Dressing


Tuna can often be a bit of a polarising sandwich filling, but we really do think the tuna from Subway makes for an awesome choice. Despite all of the recent controversy, the tuna is just flaked tuna in mayonnaise and nothing else. If you pair this with some lettuce and some honey mustard, you've got a seriously good sandwich on your hands. Learn more here -


Meatball Marinara

Ever since Subway introduced the Meatball Marinara as part of its menu, the sandwich has been a firm favourite with customers. The concept sounds pretty strange, to be honest - meatballs in a sandwich is not something that here in the UK we see very often. But in the USA, a meatball sub has been a pretty normal thing for years, and the Subway UK version of the meatball sub has gone down surprisingly well over here. It's actually quite a simple sandwich, consisting of beef meatballs covered in a marinara sauce, and cheese on top. If you've never tried it before you should give it a shot and see what you think, learn more here -


Italian B.M.T

We always wondered why the Italian B.M.T is such a popular choice at Subway, until we tried it for ourselves. We then very quickly realised that if you're a meat lover, the Italian B.M.T is basically a dream. With layers of pepperoni, salami, and ham, it's a meat feast in every mouthful, and the southwest sauce is a perfect pairing. Learn more here -


Chicken Teriyaki

Asian-inspired sandwiches are becoming a much bigger thing here in the UK, with Banh Mi sandwiches growing in popularity massively over the last few years. The Chicken Teriyaki sandwiches from Subway have also been a really popular addition to their range - the sticky teriyaki glaze is flavoursome but not too overpowering, and the chicken always has a nice texture. It's usually recommended to pair this sandwich with the Sweet Onion sauce, but it works well without too. Learn more here -


Turkey Breast

Unlike most of the other sandwich fillings we've included in this list, the beauty of the Turkey Breast from Subway is that it is so simple and is perfect for experimenting with. The Turkey Breast from Subway works with just about all of the sauces, with or without cheese, and with any salad alongside it. It's also high in protein and low in fat, which is perfect for anyone watching their figure. Overall, a safe and always delicious choice. Learn more here -


Veggie Delite

Ok, before you click off the article just hear us out! The Subway Veggie Delite is very underrated and as far as vegetarian sandwiches go, it's one of the best you can buy on the high street. It's super simple and is literally just lots of salad in a sub, but for us, it's the choice of sauces and bread you can have which really set the sandwich apart. The veggie patty you can buy to include in the sandwich isn't really worth your time so in our opinion, keep it simple with just lots of vegetables slathered in whatever sauce you fancy.

Steak & Cheese

Similar to the Meatball Marinara sub, the Steak and Cheese sandwich was a big hit in the States long before it landed here in the UK. Inspired by the famous Philly Steak sandwich, the Steak & Cheese sub is Philly-style steak mixed with peppers, onions and topped with cheese. If you've never tried one, we highly recommend you give it a shot. Learn more here -


Final thoughts

So as you can see, you've got a number of great Subway sandwiches to choose from, and the best is really down to your personal preferences. But the one thing that can't be denied is that there is something for everyone on the Subway menu!
