Pie and mash is a traditional working-class food, originating in the East End of London since the 19th century, and are still common in East and South London and in our home town of Southend on Sea, Essex. The shops may also serve stewed or jellied eels.

Traditionally, pie and mash shops have white tile walls with mirrors, and marble floors, tables and work tops, all of which are easy to clean. They give the shops, hardly ever called restaurants, a late Victorian or Art Deco appearance.

What is Pie & Mash?

The main dish sold is pie and mash, a minced-beef and cold-water-pastry pie served with mashed potato. There should be two types of pastry used; the bottom or base should be suet pastry and the top can be rough puff or short. It is common for the mashed potato to be spread around one side of the plate and served with Liquor; a type of parsley sauce (the term liquor does not imply alcohol content in its original meaning). Liquor is traditionally green in colour, from the parsley.

Rosie Pie & Mash shop was established in 1929 with multiple restaurants (shops_ now open across East London & Essex. They are also very proud suppliers of their delicious Pie and Mash to ASDA in London and Essex, Queens Park Rangers, Local Pubs, Cafes and Sporting Venues.
