Pie & Mash, Eels and Fruit Pies!


203 Deptford High St.

The Goddard’s Pie and Mash business was founded in 1890 by Alfred Goddard in Evelyn Street, Deptford, London. Alfred passed the business to his two sons in 1936. In 1952, another shop was opened in Greenwich at the same time as the Cutty Sark was placed in dry dock. For a time, pies were cooked in the Deptford shop and transported by van to Greenwich. After a couple of years the two brothers decided to take one shop each and our grandfather took the Greenwich shop while his brother remained in Deptford. In 1972, Bob and his wife decided to retire and passed the Pie House to his eldest son, Dave Goddard and his wife Pam. Dave and Pam worked hard to build up the business and extended the opening days to include Sundays. Dave and Pam introduced their sons Jeff and Kane to the business at a very early age. Both boys were working in the shop at the weekends from 10 years old. Sadly, in 1990, Dave Goddard suddenly passed away and the pie and mash shop was then managed by Jeff, Kane and Pam. The Pieshop in Greenwich was closed in November 2006 enabling Jeff and Kane to concentrate on providing pie and mash on a wholesale basis and for delivery.

More like...after making a small fortune selling out to GBK despite local residents supporting them during the building of the Cutty Sark station!

They even admit it here:

You say that like there's something wrong with it, anon! Aren't people running their own businesses in it to a) make money and b) make their own decisions about their businesses?

Does this mean their shop on Deptford High Street doesn't serve? I've passed it a number of times but never when it's open.

@anon yes the Deptford branch is still in business. Best to try it on a market day lunchtime.
