The best news hubby and I heard all lockdown was that Thug Sandwich was re-opening! We’d had to self isolate before official lockdown due to our daughter having a temperature, so we weren’t able to get our fix before Dan shut up shop. There was talk of a delivery service – but I totally get why this didn’t happen. If you’re a regular Thugger you’ll know Dan does not cut corners on anything – and I guess with a delivery service he’d have had to. So I’m glad he waited, because his sandwiches are in my opinion a taste of heaven, and it was so worth the wait – they were, as always bang on!
I’m a big sandwich fan, and Thug have somehow gotten into my brain and taken everything I love and put it in a sandwich. Everything is either home made or locally sourced. The quality of everything is unreal. The portions are huge and the prices are really really reasonable!
If you’re after something brunch-esq, a usual cheese and ham or something a special you will not be disappointed! We went for our absolute favourites – Soy Beef special and the KFCaesar. 10/10. The Soy Beef is my absolute all time favourite – mouth wateringly good. They sell a range of non sandwich items too – salads, brownies and their pretty incredible lamb fingers to name a few.
There are are socially distancing rules in place, and you can even call in your order before hand. Thug Sandwich has been a great addition to the Harrogate food scene. But now more than ever you need to go and try these sandwiches. His usual foot fall has gone, no more people in the local offices, shops or even the gym opposite. But for everyone now working from home – take your lunch hour and head down there. If you usually treat yourself to a take away at the weekend – try this for lunch in brunch instead. Or, if you’re off out for a family picnic – fill your boots here first!
So get out there – support a brilliant local business and do your tastebuds a massive favour. Oh and they’re coffee is pretty awesome too!
