I have visited this pie & mash shop several times over the years Back when it used to be at the lower end of crown hill to its current home in Frith Road. Everything you would expect from a pie & mash shop. Always been happy with the food although I've always found the mash here slightly disappointing compared to... More

The mince comes from the butchers across the road , the spuds from nearby Surrey Street Market so everything is locally sourced . The pies made with healthy water pastry full of lean mince, a couple of dollops of mash and liquor washed down with a mug of rosy lee and all for £4.10 ! Now that's what I call... More

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... 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!

Most times I'm in Croydon I visit Cockneys. Double pie, mash and liquor does it for me. Less than £6, and fills you for hours.
