Pie and Mash Shops in Years Past

Sally Jane

Started this blog on 26th August 2019 I hope to compile a collection of the early be it Eel Houses - Pie and Eels or Pie and Mash Shops. I have a lot of these photos to upload so please call back for updates (will be mostly a Sunday night for updates)

Cooke's Pie and mash at 41 Kingsland High Street, Dalston opened in 1910

Eel-Pie shops were family businesses which opened new branches with every generation. In 1910 one of Robert Cooke’s sons, Fred, opened the Cooke’s seventh shop at 41 Kingsland High Street, Dalston. It is considered by many to have been ‘the Buckingham Palace of Pie & Mash shops’ and became a listed building. After closing in 1997 the shop became a Chinese restaurant ‘Shanghai’.

Millers Pie House in Plumstead London taken way back in 1913

I did some research and found that the building was located on 48 Plumstead High Street. It easy to notice from the architecture as it was a 1 storey building right next to a three storey building. The site still exists today as a Chinese take-away, with an extra storey added since the photo was taken back in 1913. Research by Mike Goldwater.

Will upload more next Sunday should you have and photos please lmk ~Sally
