This is the king of pasties. I generally refuse them as they're so often dry, tasteless pastry with a little peppery filling. Not this one! They are jammed with filling in the most delicious, crispy pastry. Sit round the corner on the sea front and enjoy yourself! Excellent steak filling.

We've been to St Ives on many occasions over the years and we all agree that Pengenna is THE place for a pasty in the town. Filled to the brim with meat and veg. Great pastry and served beautifully warm. Grab one of these delicious beauties and then head to the harbour or the beach to soak in the views.... More

Everyone has different views, but Pengenna pasties are meaty, not too veggie and not too peppery. The pastry is very tasty and light. A delicious pasty!

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....
