Max Halley has partnered with the legendary Hippodrome Casino in London’s Leicester Square to offer a menu of towering sandwich creations. Available from the 1st June 2023, Max Halley at the Hippodrome will be the only venue outside of Max’s North London Sandwich Shop where customers can enjoy Max’s sandwich perfection. Max’s menu at The Hippodrome will comprise six stacked sandwiches and playful reimaginings of classic casino fare, elevating humble ingredients to decadent new heights.

This unique partnership brings to life the alleged origins of the first sandwich, which suggests that the 4th Earl of Sandwich was playing cards and did not want to leave the gaming table to eat. So, he asked for a serving of roast beef to be placed between two slices of bread so he could eat with his hands, and thus, the first sandwich was born.

Visitors to The Hippodrome will be pleased to find much more exciting options available on Max’s menu, from retro classics to deli favourites. The full menu will include:

Two Straight Up Deli Classics (ciabatta) 
Veggie: Grilled artichokes & aubergines, sunblushed tomatoes, burrata, lemon zest, chopped green olives, basil & truffle mayo 
Meaty: Mortadella, cooked ham, artichokes, burrata, basil, lemon zest, chopped green olives & truffle mayo
