London’s Best Pie & Mash Shops - Average Joes
The origins of pie and mash in London can be traced back to the 18th century when ‘Eel Pie and Mash Houses’ began opening across the East End. Pies were filled with eels as they cheap, filling and readily available from the Thames. But pies have come a long way since then, so sit back and tuck in to our feast of some of the best pies money can buy in London!

“During the Middle Ages nearly every abbey brewed beer for the faithful flock within the walls. Beer was critical to good diet. But soon, the church weaseled into the business of beer, selling to the unwashed masses outside. As a logo the abbeys used each other’s patron saint to create brand recognition, even if that particular saint never touched a drop.” (Alan Eames) Art: Eduard Grützner - Master brewer at the snack in the cloister cellar
