  • EMR launches new Spring food menu for First Class customers
  • It sees EMR partner with The Soho Sandwich Company
  • Fresh selection includes focaccia signature sandwiches, wraps and vegan options

East Midlands Railway (EMR) has partnered with The Soho Sandwich Company to offer a brand new and improved First Class menu.

The new menu, which launches today, will include a wide range of sandwiches, including spicy chicken and pepper and tuna crunch, as well as vegetarian options, such as a ploughman's sub roll.

There will also be a good choice of new vegan options - these include chickpea, mango and masala wrap and This! Isn't chicken & stuffing sandwich.


The Spring menu will also bring changes to the sweet items offered to First Class customers, with exciting additions like triple choc and lemon curd muffins.

There will also be an exciting range of bars, such as caramel shortbread and toffee flapjack, and gluten and dairy free bars, including Lizzie's tiffin and brownie.

The new menu sees EMR partner with the sandwich producer which is committed to sustainability through its fully recyclable packaging and its aim to be carbon neutral by 2025.


Items will be on rotation each week to provide First Class customers with a choice of meat, vegetarian, dairy free (vegan) and gluten free options.

Dave Meredith, Customer Services Director at East Midlands Railway, said: “We are excited to be able to offer our First Class customers an exciting new range of sandwiches which forms part of a collaboration with The Soho Sandwich Company. Our fresh Spring menu is full of quality items which we believe our customers will definitely enjoy. 

"Working with The Soho Sandwich Company also supports our goals to operate as sustainably as possible.

“For any First Class customers who fancy a bite to eat while they travel with us, whether it be a sandwich or a quick snack, our new Spring menu offers a quality selection to choose from.”

Guy Truman, Group Commercial Director at The Soho Sandwich Company, said: "We’re delighted to begin our journey with EMR with the launch of a new range of premium products into First Class.

"We spent time travelling across the network to understand what commuters really wanted and we think we’re ticking a lot of boxes with a range that is flavoursome and always on trend. Whether travelling for work or with family, we hope to provide you with the most exciting dining experience on board."
