Pie and mash shop era ends in East Ham

For decades it was a permanent fixture on East Ham’s High Street but now that Robin’s Pie and Mash has served its last orders, an era has ended.

For decades it was a permanent fixture on East Ham’s High Street but now that Robin’s Pie and Mash has served its last orders, an era has ended. The shop that served generations of eastenders at 105 High Street North has closed its doors for the last time.

Mrs June Robins, 73, who owns the family-run business, and has run the restaurant in Newham for the last 48 years said she was sad at its closure but felt there wasn’t enough demand for the traditional East End food which was its speciality.

She still has four other restaurants in and around east London and Essex and is determined to continue with the business.
