“Great pastry, shame about the fillings.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

We bought 2 steak pasties and 1 mince pasty today. The pastry was amazing and the pasties were tasty with good amount of seasoning. However, we were rather disappointed with the fillings which just had far too much potato and not enough meat. The small amount of steak in one pasty was in large bits and was a bit chewy. The mince looked a bit raw in the mince pasty. Expected better.

“Very good, but probably not the best in Cornwall.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

You need a good appetite to manage a large pasty from Philip’s. We had one of each type of pasty (Steak, Mince and Veg) at the standard size and sat at one of the outside tables to eat them (no inside seating or facilities) – there are public conveniences behind Lloyds bank (near the viaduct) about 5 to 10 minutes’ walk-away.

These pasties were very good; but I found them slightly salty and with a feeling of being mass produced.
