Cooke’s Pies & Mash

Click for full size

Founded back in 1862, Cookes are the oldest surviving Pie & Mash shops in London’s East End. These began as Eel & Pie shops in the 1700s. In Victorian London 600 piemen walked the streets. They rowed early to Billingsgate Fish Market by the Thames for eels. Long a staple food for poor Londoners, eel pies were sold on the day of baking.
