British Pie Week 2014

Posted on February 16th, 2014

Pie lovers all over the country celebrated the Great British classic that is the much loved pie during British Pie Week in early March 2014.

None more so than customers of Arments Pie, Mash & Eel House in Walworth, London SE17, the renowned family eatery famous for cooking up delicious pie, liquor and mash since April 1914. William and Emily Arment opened the first restaurant at 386 Walworth Road, at a time when the world was a very different place. The Arments family have continued to serve people through two World Wars, the great depression, the 3-day week and its inherent power cuts but kept open for business throughout.

A blue plaque marking three generations of Arment family ownership – during its centenary year – was be unveiled by Jake Goodman (Millwall) British Pie Week at 3.00pm on Thursday 6th March. The current shop is just around the corner from the original premises, on Westmorland Road, Walworth, SE17 2AX.

Cheryl Arment who runs the business with her partner Roy Arment commented: ‘Our success is based on maintaining the standards set by generations before us.’

‘All our produce is fresh on-site each day. We pride ourselves on using the best ingredients and keep to an original recipe passed down through the generations. Our pies are still traditionally made by hand which gives them their distinctive appearance and flavour.’

‘However, we listen to what the public want and have introduced vegetarian and vegan pies to satisfy this demand, and will continue to move with the times whilst retaining our tradition.’
