In the heart of Covent Garden Square is Battersea Pie Station. Their cuisine specialises in – you guessed it – pies. Good old fashioned and traditional food you can expect 'pukka tukka' as us Londoners might say, at this establishment.

The menu boasts a variety of pies; both meat and vegetarian, with various gravys, mash and of course a vegetable selection. The choice on the menu is extensive with regard to pies – but make no mistake, you come here knowing the basics of what your meal will be – PIE.

Although pie is pretty much all they do, they do it well. Fresh pastry, free-range meat and vegetables all sourced from the British Isles, there is no question that this is the home of the ultimate pie.

I kept my choice safe by having 'The Winstone' pie, endorsed and promoted by none other than our homegrown cockney geezer and legendary British actor Ray Winstone (part profits from which go to homelessness charity Thames Reach which is nice). With it I had mash and vegetables and of course, gravy. My fellow diners had the Butternut Squash and Goat's Cheese pie, and the Fish pie.

The consensus was that the pies were really, really good and the mash was creamy and delicious. If you like a good pie, this place is a must. And to top off a fantastic meal, the staff gave the wine complimentary because we had to wait 10 minutes for our booked table to free up. This place is great but therefore mega busy so make sure you reserve a table as turning up spontaneously could result in quite a wait.
