Stopped here drawn in by pasties baked next door. Large pasty and garnish £5.25 is all you need for a balanced lunch in Tintagel! Also do other light snacks and cream teas - no chips in sight and the better for it! I tried to attach a picture of a pasty but could not upload it and now too late... More

Really, really delicious, and I mean, REALLY, just so delicious vegan vegetable pasties. HUGE, filling, and they went really well with chips. They also made it clear that they're vegan and weren't annoyed that we asked!

My husband and I were wandering around St.Ives when a sign on the shopwindow of a lovely bakery looked absolutely irresistible: cream tea to take away. So we stepped inside. Two scones, a pot of strawberry jam and one of clotted cream together with a cup of hot tea and the breathtaking view of St. Ives from the window of... More

Yes it's a big claim - given that I haven't eaten every pastie available but in my modest experience this the Pengenna standard steak paste was absolutely fantastic. The flaky pastry, the meaty chunks and substantial onion pieces made this paste a meal to remember.

Amazingly stuffed full (and I mean full) of meat, veggies and other yummies... It has to be the best Pasty I have had! A friend measured the size of the Pasty against her thigh - the Pasty was bigger!

This was recommended to us, but I have to say I found the pasties a bit stodgy and dry. I have definitely had much better.
