Plans in to convert Greenwich Subway and Ben & Jerry units into Tortilla branch

Plans have been submitted to convert the Subway and Ben and Jerry units in Greenwich town centre into a Tortilla takeaway

The Tortilla branch will the latest of dozens across the country from the same company.

The site is a few metres from the Cutty Sark DLR entrance and opposite Wetherspoons at 2 Crescent Arcade.

This area is very much chain central with a Pret nearby.

Subway still list the Greenwich branch on their site so no idea how long it has left. It may have even closed already. Subway has felt like a company (which operates via franchises) on its way down for some time.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    • Be interested to see what plans they have for litter disposal, and how eco-friendly packaging is. For a while I’ve advocated a litter tax on takeaway outlets to pay for a system of improved litter removal and street cleaning/washing/de-oiling from our main outlet streets. Would have obstacles but not impossible. Current system not coping with general council tax funds and shouldny bear the brunt either, especially peak periods/seasons/nice weather.

    • YES! Variety! I hope this place is good, I’ve not had very good luck with so-called Mexican joints since arriving in London, usually they end up being some kind of “fusion” place, where everything’s been FUSED into something that’s decidedly inauthentic!

    • It’s decent, not amazing but I’ve used it plenty of times over the years for lunch in the city and in Canary Wharf. Thankfully they are consistent and you build your own meal, a bit like subway but with flavour.
