5 places to find tempting soup and sandwich meals in the north-east

Soup and a sandwich.

You’ll find fewer greater pairings than soup and a sandwich, particularly at this time of year as the temperatures begin to plummet.

They are the ultimate comfort food and so many tempting combinations are out there to choose from.

A classic ham and cheese teamed with a creamy tomato or butternut squash soup, or a club sandwich with a vegetable broth, narrowing down your pick may prove a challenge (to say the least).

Not certain about the businesses offering top soup and sandwich combos in the north-east? Well fear not, for we have listed five that stand out from the crowd.
