Square Pie

An updated version of traditional London cuisine, set within an updated version of a traditional London market.

As Old Spitalfields Market continues to bustle and change around it, Square Pie remains a bastion of all things (modern) pie and mash. The sleek, red-tiled counter provides tasty pies, mash and mushy peas to shoppers and local workers, who sit and devour their cardboard boxes of hearty goodness at either the bar stools inside or the tables outside in the market itself.

The menu ranges from trad options (steak and Guinness, chicken and mushroom) to the more adventurous (chicken Bangalore), all coming with mounds of soft mash. Smaller pies, Devon-made pasties and veggie options are available, as well as non-pie dishes, such as beef stew, jacket potatoes, macaroni cheese and sausages.

If you can fit in anything afterwards, there are lamingtons, carrot cake, victoria sponge and apple pie, and coffees from Monmouth. Great filling grub at a persuasive price.

Saw GP's review and was reminded of how much I love Square Pie. Yes it's a mini chain (I think, although thinking about it, never seen it elsewhere). I used to eat here all the time when I worked in the area. Pies, pies, pies. My dream. Pies with a side of mash and baked beans thrown on top = even better. I especially like the veggie options (weirdly). Spinach and ricotta is fab and definitely try the traditional ones too.

Hey, this place is pretty alright if you’re in the area. You can get a dinner for around a tenner if you choose carefully and the pies are good.

The sides could do with a few swankychoices ( a couple of mega-mash options maybe, I’d pay the extra 50p for some pimped out mustard and cheese mash for example) but it’s a solid menu for a comfort food lunch or dinner on a budget.

I think the jacket potatoes are a bit over priced (never as good if you’re not at home anyway but I get it, sometimes you just need a jacket potato) so if you’re umming and ahhing go for the pie!
