Time Out says
Michele Manze and family arrived from Italy in 1878, started out as ice-cream merchants and finally opened this pie, mash and eel shop on Tower Bridge Road in 1902. Inside, little seems to have changed since those early days: the Victorian green-tiled interiors speak of history, while the pie and mash is reckoned to be some of the best in town. The liquor can be a tad too thick, though the mash is smooth, and the pie filling sits nicely between the soft suet-pastry base and the flaky, almost burnt lid. Also don’t forget their stewed eels. It may be traditional stuff, but Manze’s has moved with the times by offering online ordering and courier delivery, as well as catering for big Cockney-themed evenings.

If you’re looking for an old-school, no-nonsense pie and mash shop then M.Manze is the place for you.In a city of Pie Ministers it’s good to know that the traditional places are still thriving. On weekday lunchtimes the queue is full of locals, builders and city workers alike all looking for a value meal.Take your tourist friends when they London. The place is worth a visit for the wall tiles alone (an exact colour match of the liquor they serve up with the pies!).
The best pie and mash shop in London! My family have been going here for 40 years. They travel far and wide every Friday for it. You must have the liquor, flip the pie, cut it open and spoon in the liquor. Don't forget the salt, pepper and lots of vinegar too! Long live Manzes!!!
This last reviewer must not be from London, and maybe it’s a thing you need to have grown up with, but Pie Mash and Liquor is delicious, especially at Manzies, Arments in the Woolworth roar and Cookes down the Cut
Went to Manze after seeing it featured in a cookery program, and I must say it was a total waste of time and money. The service is friendly but the food was terrible. The pie taste worse than any frozen pie i've had, and the liquor was tasteless. The food was well below average and apart from the building's historic significance, the food was a huge letdown.
