PIE, MASH AND LIQUOR FOR LOVE WALK

05 April 2018

Last week a group of residents from Love Walk visited Arments Pie & Mash shop on Walworth Road. This East London meal is a treat for some of our residents who have been brought up with the tradition locally.

“Arments has been serving up pie, mash and liquor for over 100 years and there is a bit of a ritual to how you order. You can ask for either one or two pies, one or two ‘scrapes’ of mash, and with or without liquor, at the end of which you say how many times you want that particular combo”, commented Penny Brice, Activities Co-ordinator. “A true Londoner will always turn their pie upside down before eating it, and then eat it with a spoon and fork rather than cut it up with a knife.” Residents enjoyed the experience in the shop, commenting, “It is part of all my childhood memories”.

Afterwards, residents ventured down East Street Market, also known locally as “The Lane”. Everyone agreed it was a lovely afternoon spent in our local community.
