Another 'Pie & Mash' gem
100 year old family business - classic 'pie & mash' grub.
Location: 9 Broadway Market, E8 4PH
Description: London has a 'pie & mash' tradition that luckiky lives on - and this is a perfect example.
'F Cooke' is an old style pie & mash shop, complete with sawdust on the floors and eels in the window - old school if you will.
As a stalwart of Broadway Market, this shop has been run by the same family for 100 years. Here's hoping for many many more years to come - go enjoy.
