“The ingredients didn't live up to the name.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

On a wet, snowy evening, I sunk my teeth into a hot cornish pasty. The memory (not pleasant) has dimmed but I still remember the squish of clag-like food (it was real food right?) Not good, but perhaps I got a dodgy one. Will try again next time I'm in Oxford.

“Decent meat pies”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

I fell in love with these flaky meat pies when I was at the University of Sheffield, but the best are in Salisbury (go figure). The Cornish Pastry Shop is a franchise, but with that said, they are still pretty good.
