I do love a jellied eel and a pie and mash shop. I haven't found one yet that I would give 5* rating too. There are plenty to choose from in Bethnal Green and there isn't that much between them to be honest.

This Pie and Mash shop has been here for DECADES, I have eaten in here for probably THREE DECADES, nothing has changed, it has history, wooden bench old photo's, lots of character. The pie, mash, liquor & eels (yes eels!) are all delicious, service is quick. Since we have moved away, I miss this place!!!. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED more
