Delicious! & CHEAP! Highly recommend!

We saw a huge line up for this bakery so we though hey something must good in here! And the mounds of people were indeed right. Mouth watering scones and jam and clotted cream. We are going back tomorrow for a pasty! Definitely treat yourself to a Pengenna pastry while your visiting St Ives.

Ok everyone used to cornish pasties knows the difference between a good one and a bad one. Gone are the days (I hope) where we would now out the few bits of meat we used to get that was like dry chewing gum, and most shops sell pasties that are at least edible. However I have NEVER found a shop... More

If you ate here and the pasty wasn't up to par...ALWAYS...return and ask to speak to management. They will need to know in order to correct it No excuses, but looking over the reviews, it looks as if perhaps they might have had someone new on board who didn't know what they were doing. The shop is actually just a... More

The best pasties I have tasted in Cornwall so far especially the lamb & mint, even when I have stayed at the Lizard I have made sure I come to St Ives to get my 'fix' of Pengenna lamb & mint pasties. I was under strict instructions to bring some of these home to my eldest son so he could... More

I am British and the usual pasty offerings from British supermarkets are very meh. Pengenna Pasties are the total opposite. Ignore imitations from other vendors in town, Pengenna IS the cornish pasty.

Whenever I am in St Ives, I have to go to Pengenna Pasties because their pasties are HUGE and soooooooo tasty. We've eaten lots of pasties in Cornwall this holiday and Pengenna is the best. They also have a shop/restaurant in Tintagel, and the restaurant ones are even bigger - we had to share!

I come back to this bakery every time I'm in St. Ives as it seems to be the only one which uses short crust pastry. There's a reasonable amount of chunky meat in it and it's huge, so you're getting your £4 value.

Picture this....a quaint little English village nestled on the edge of the west coast of England, green grass, little white lambs, gorgeous turquoise blue water complete with waterfalls, sea caves and the castle remain of what is reportedly the birthplace of King Arthur. Now picture hundreds of tourists! Don't let it turn you off. On the Main Street through town... More
