Have a holiday home in St Ives and every time we're there we won't get our pasties from anywhere else but here! :)

Called here Thursday last for a couple of pasties..We have eaten Pengenna pasties for years and really enjoyed them.However this was a dreadful experience..Bland and tasteless is the best way to describe the one I had & the meat was full of gristle..My wifes was over seasoned with salt..Both pasties were inedible..

I bought a veg pasty from pengenna and was thoroughly disappointed with what I was presented with. Not only was the vegetable pasty full of unwanted veg such and peas and sweet corn and courgette of all things?!? (I love all of those vegetables but they don't belong in a pasty) I have much trouble finding a vegetarian pasty with... More

Spread the word! These are the best pasties ever! My husband adores them and reckons himself a bit of an expert where pasties are concerned, he has had a pasty from Pengenna every day this week. I don't eat pastry but made an exception when I saw how much meat was inside. Perfectly seasoned as well, loads of pepper to... More

We brought our lunch from this shop twice whilst staying in St Ives, we are regularly visitors to cornwall so know a good pasty when we taste it; we brought two lamb and mint and some other treats and all were delicious, possibly the best pasties we've ever tasted!

If I could criticise anything about the pasties from pagenna, it could only be the sheer size.... I'm not here to criticise only to recommend the wonderful 'olde worlde' Cornish fayre from this delightful establishment. If your here for a week you will certainly be back more than once. But please try the wonderful cheese straws or remarkable sausage rolls....

We were in Cornwall for the week and sampled a few pasties. These were by far the best. Giant pasties stuffed full of beef and vegetables. Great flavour and great value. Helpful friendly service.

Really helpful in informing us on how to store and reheat our frozen pastys. Good price and the pastys were amazing, massive in size also.

This is always our first stop prior to reaching our holiday destination in Cornwall. We regularly tuck into a traditional beef, or a juicy lamb and mint pasty, sitting in the car or on a bench admiring the view across the fields to the sea (depending on the weather) at lunch time. These pasties are consistently good with chunks of... More
