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.

Ever since I was kid living in the States I've always been into diners. Even as a kid I think I realized these places were free of attitude. Just comfort foods enjoyed by all walks of life. Fast forward 25+ years I find myself in London searching for the same experience.

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
