Read about the results of our survey to find the nation's favourite Afternoon Tea sandwiches.


Cucumber sandwich

Thank you to everyone who took part in our survey to find the nation's favourite Afternoon Tea sandwich.

We can now reveal that smoked salmon and cream cheese on granary bread was the top choice.

The poll also revealed that the cucumber sandwich, which is traditionally associated with afternoon tea, was the preferred filling for just 8% of participants.

We asked our customers to name their favourite sandwich combination and a clear winner soon began to emerge. 

Granary bread was the top choice overall, but white bread was still the preferred companion to the cucumber and cream cheese sandwich.

1. Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese
