They may be just over the border into Devon, but they make a very good pasty! There are a variety of pasty fillings to choose from ... but nothing beats the original!

This is our second visit, but our first eating in. What impressed us last time was the range and quality of the pasties on offer. We were not let down this time including enjoying one of the best Steak and Stilton pasties tasted.

A great place for a quick meal, very good prices, helpful and friendly staff both in the Tavistock and Plymouth Establishments. Good size portions and nice tasty food. We will always make the effort to eat here it is worth it.

Excellent friendly quick service. Was able to cater for gluten free and understood about cross contamination. No gluten free pasties but could have a well baked jacket potato.

I ordered two luxury hot chocolates with cream and no marshmallows (we are vegetarian) and when they came out - guess what! we had mashmallows and so I sent them back.

Dear Sarah, I am very sorry that we got this one wrong. We are a family run business, who do take our responsibility to our Vegetarian customers very seriously, but on this occasion we got it wrong, on two accounts.

Good place plenty of seating. Dogs not welcome. Staff are good and efficient and a big queue dissipates pretty fast! Nice pasties, would definitely recommend.
