I ordered a large takeaway order for my dad's 90th birthday on 21 November. The staff were fantastic and so helpful from the minute I first rang to the pick up day. Food was great. so pleased they do vegan pies too.

Not the best pie and mash I've had but it's good and I would go again if I'm in the area. Lovely pies, mash ok and plentiful liquor - did the job for me! Like all pie and mash shops, eels were on offer but I can't stand the slimy things so can't comment on them!

G.Kelly is an old style Pie and Mash shop on the Bethnal Green Road, only one of just a handful left in London now. Pie 'n' Mash for the uninitiated is a Minced Beef pie made with Hot water pastry, served with a Parsley based Green Sauce and Mashed Potatoes. The only other item you will find on the menu... More

Went here for lunch today and I really don't know why people rave about this pie and mash place - it was grim. To start with though, the shop is very authentic, with some lovely traditional fixtures inside. The staff are very friendly and you feel like they really enjoy their job and looking after the customers. However the mash... More

I wish this place was nearer to where i lived ! Also it would benefit from slightly longer opening hours as im sure lots of people turn up ( like me once ) to find its shut . Great tasting pie n mash washed down with a cuppa , cant beat it

When you walk in you feel you jumped in a past century shop. Staff is extremely kind. Food is traditional and you can have a lovely taste of English cuisine. The atmosphere is rustic and simple, do not expect starred Michelin place, however portions are big, tasty and cheap and that is what really matter. Go and enjoy pastries!

Great traditional east end grub, generous portion and at a great price. If you are ever in the area you must visit this family run place, the pies are delicious
