G Kelly

Since 1937 Kelly’s daytime caff has been serving minced beef pie, mash, ‘liquor’ (parsley sauce) and eels (hot or jellied) to the street traders of Roman Road market. The menu has grown to include vegetarian pies and apple crumble, but in the simple white-tiled interior you’ll still sit at benches alongside ravenous costermongers.

original mash shop, family owned, what so many other places try and be but never will!

I love this Roman Road pie and mash shop - great character. Try the chicken ham and leek one and the crumbles!!!

A true east end establishment I have been eating here since I was a toddler I crave pie n mash

Keeping up the East End tradition on the Roman Road. All the food is homemade and still run by the Kelly family. Get your two and two with loads of liquor (although mine is a veggie pie)

The fact that it's now open Sunday afternoons is an added bonus. A hot beef pie, that bursts with gravy and juice as you bite into it is the perfect Saturday lunchtime pickmeup.

One of the best meals you can have. Pies freshly baked and mash as smooth as silk and the liqueur the greenness of pea soup what else can a person want to eat
