Cooke's Pie and Mash Shop



Cooke's Pie and Mash Shop

Pie & Mash Shop and Quadrophenia in the Heart of Shepherds Bush

Location: 48 Goldhawk Road, W12 8DH

Description: Rock star 'Pete Townshend' has joined the campaign to save one of west London's last surviving traditional pie and mash shops from demolition.

The Who guitarist called it 'inconceivable' that Cooke's in Shepherd's Bush could be built over by a 150 million pound 'yuppie flat' development (Feb 2012).

The shop was a Mod haunt in the Sixties, and a protest of up to 100 scooter veterans is planned for April. Cooke's and the 98-year-old market feature in 1979 movie Quadrophenia.

Townshend said: 'Cooke's is a part of the history of Goldhawk Road. For my part, this was where The Who took flight in 1963, where we performed one of our first shows as the Detours. I realise change is inevitable, but to think of Shepherd's Bush without Cooke's is inconceivable.'

Other rock regulars include former Sex Pistol Paul Cook and ex-Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page. Under the development plan 200 flats and 13 terrace houses will be built, new market squares created and the Bush Theatre refurbished.

This place is absolutely legendary, good honest fare for the masses that should be promoted and nurtured in this modern day nonsensical London society.
