Ruddy marvellous

Quite simply pie & mash is the food of the Gods. Forget wine or oysters or being hand fed grapes at some sort of Bacchanalian orgy, it is, always has been and always will be pie & mash. I was heartbroken when I moved away from London (it was my own choice by the way, nobody forced me too, so... read more

The fastest of fast food in a traditional pie and mash shop. We weren't brave enough to go for the eels, stewed or jellied, but others eating seemed to enjoy them!

This pie shop does one of the best pie and mash in London. Their pastry is the best in my view and the people who run it are nice folk.

Pie and mash is my favourite food , so any pie and mash shop has a lot to live up to my childhood memories in Battersea, this place comes close, IRS clean and tidy , staff really friendly and familiar, treat all customers as guests ! The liquor can be hit and miss but more hit than miss. No complaint... More
