We stopped here for a pasty and the only ones they had left were the cocktail ones we sat at a table in the shop eating them and it was so so good now we now know how they had sold out of the larger ones really excellent pasties

Kids wanted to try a traditional Cornish pasty. Found Rowe's ones were absolutely delicious, full of flavour and reasonably priced. The staff in the bakery were really friendly too.

Ate here a couple of times for lunch whilst on holiday. Good food and service on both occasions and a good price too - highly recommend.

We stayed for tea and a bun which wasn't expensive or posh but hit the spot at the time. Friendly staff.

Came here as wanted to have a pasty from a small business instead of a chain and we were blown away by how amazing they tasted! Friendly staff too made us want to go back for more!!

Excellent bakery with cheerful atmosphere due to the staff. Great breads on offer, pastries, cakes ...but the pasties are truly amazing. No soggy bottoms here!! The pastry is light and flaky, the fillings flavoursome with no cheap cuts of meat. Yum!

The best pasties in town! The food is tasty and fresh. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Love this bakery! My only problem with Rowes is, they don't sell caramel doughnuts! I have to go to another bakery for them! ;)

We tried other pasty shops in Penzance, but loved Rowe's (the one in the town square next to Domino's pizza). The staff were very friendly and courteous and the pasties we ordered were delicious.

You can tell that this company is run well. The shop was clean and well laid out. The staff well presented and friendly. The food awesome. I had the prawn baguette and it was so fresh and filled with tasty prawns. My wife had a small pasty and it was also tasty and hot. Defo one of the better bakeries.

I agree with the previous reviewer. I have been visiting Rowe's bakery shops in Cornwall since 1995. For many years Rowe's were well known for their consistently good Cornish pasties and I used to love them and would excitedly look forward to the next one. The secret or winninjg formula was that they were always baked to perfection - with... More
