The BEST pasty EVER

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

My first proper Cornish pasty - went for the traditional and wasn't disappointed! Fresh and delicious. Staff very friendly. Highly recommended.

I've never had a pasty so don't have anything to compare it to but I was amazed by how good a steak pasty tasted. I'm never normally a fan of pastry but this was so light and crispy. I thought £4 was a bit pricey but after seeing all the great steak inside I can see why. Only downside is... More

If you're going to get a pasty anywhere, make sure it's here. The lamb and mint ones are very tasty and so thought the seagull who stole the last bite from my hand. Don't be put off by queues outside, that's a good sign!

We tried a few places for scones and this placed served the best. Both fruit and plain were amazing and an excellent price. We're buying some to take back home with us too.

Ordered a cheese and onion pasty and it tasted amazing! I couldn't even finish it, when I had the second half later, even cold it still tasted good! Would definitely recommend this little shop.

On another recent visit to Bude we popped into Pegenna Pasties for a quick snack with the kids. These are some of the nicest pasties I have had in a long time, with lovely pastry together with humungous generous fillings, not the cheapest pasty in the world but well worth it. If your in Bude anytime make sure you head... More
