Hundreds of people tucked into pie and mash over the weekend as A. Cooke's store in Shepherd's Bush, a much-loved family business, closed its doors on Saturday (July 25) for the last time.
Many people vented their frustrations and disappointment online as the shop closed, with one Pie and Mash fan, Yvonne Dunmore, saying: "This place will be sadly missed by so many. I know there may be other pie shops but this is Cooke's Pie and Mash shop. Sad, sad, day!"
But worry not, there are plenty of other great options all around London for a brilliant pie and mash meal. Here are eight of the best:
