Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Proper meat pie served with mashed potatoes and outstanding desserts. I had a delicious chicken and mushrooms pie with a side of mashed potatoes: the portions are very generous and all the items on the menu are very cheap. If you're not too full you can also have a dessert: I recommend the toffee sticky pudding with ice cream, simply gorgeous! The staff was very kind and friendly especially the blond lady at the counter and the restaurant is clean and cozy. If you're visiting Greenwich Park make sure you visit Goddard's at Greenwich for lunch, you won't regret it!

Visitor Greenwich observatory and the Cutty Sark on a day trip and walked past this traditional pie shop, soo glad we went in. For five pounds I got the best steak and kidney pie I’ve eaten ever, with mash and liquor I would have been just as happy paying double but for this price a visit is an absolute no brained. There are a variety of pies on offer including vegan options and the staff and really friendly too.

Roll on release from lockdown so I can visit this place again. Delicious traditional Pie n Mash, minimal cost based on the portion sizes, the staff are very welcoming and friendly. I have used the home delivery too during lockdown, food has arrived on time and tastes just as good as it does in the shop. Highly recommended but mind the lunchtime queue's, this place is popular.

Visited with family during a day trip to Greenwich we had a mixture of different pies which were ok with traditional liquor and mash.There is seating upstairs and towards the back downstairs (you can just about get a pram in this area by negotiating a couple of steps). The staff are very friendly and you oreder your food and take it to your table. The food is very cheap and you get what you pay for. The tourists appear to love it but unless you experienced this food in the past you may be dissapointed. On the day we visited 29th December one toilet was shut so everyone had to use the one that was open - it was discusting Would not choose to eat here again

We came across this gem of a place whilst visiting Greenwich. Traditio9nal pie and mash served politely and efficiently by staff on duty. This is a great place for visitors to try this famous cockney traditional meal which is very reasonably priced.

Due to the current isolation, Goddards are currently delivering, Being Greenwich born and bred, I've frequented Goddards many times. In my opinion this is the best pie and mash and you can see why they've been around for so long. The delivery is well packaged and comes with instructions on how to reheat both the mash and the pies. It was so good that we've already placed our next delivery order.

Ordered some chicken balti and steak pies last week and the pies arrived with no hassle on the nominates day, neatly packaged and in a chilled box. After removing the pies from the box they were ready to pop into my freezer. Tried some out today for a quick lunch and all I can say is that the balti pies were delicious. We are now looking forward to trying out the steak and potatoe pies that are still tucked away in the freezer. Would definitely recommend having some of these pies to hand for those days that you would like a quick meal with little fuss in the kitchen.

Been looking forward to going here all day , the surroundings were just as I expected great, bit of an experience. The price looked reasonable. But the pies were bog standard cheap mass produced type, well my chicken one was, struggled to find the chicken and mushroom mostly sauce, the baked beans were not the best just ok. The mash tasted like packet instant potatoe ? The instant gravy probably cheap variety. All very sad, what a shame to serve this up to visitors from around the world what will they think? Come on you can do better charge a little more and serve up some good grub. Apple crumble custard ok ish, crumble too much not great. Less is more.

I was given a warm and friendly welcome on arrival and the opportunity to browse the menu from my table before ordering from the counter. The choice was straightforward and the many combinations would satisfy all appetites. I had double pie, mash, liquor and peas which was washed down with a mug of tea - all for less than £8. Can't find any fault and so glad I made the journey to visit.

We arrived at Greenwich at lunchtime, and so we went straight to Goddards. We ordered their apple pie with two large scoops of ice cream (£3.40) and our first ever ‘proper’ eel (the previous tasting was of the smoked variety) and so ordered pie (minced beef), mash and eels (£8.30). When the person who served us realised this was a ‘first time’ she gave us some tips - watch out for the one bone in the middle of each piece of eel, and apply vinegar and salt. We both thoroughly enjoyed our food, although we thought the apple pie would be improved if filo pastry had been used, as was the case with the beef pie. The eel was quite tasty and was white flesh with the texture of fish.

Excellent meat pies and lovely traditional mash, at a VERY good price, served in a bustling spacecwith wooden booth seating. Plus hot or jellied eels, if you dare. Wish we’d had room for the fruit pie and custard!

Well where to start. Lets be upbeat, the ambience, staff and price could not faulted, unlike the food unfortunately. Went thanks to a You Tube video by Darren John, who for some reason marked it as a 10. The chicken and mushroom pie was filled with what could only be described as sludge with hardly any chicken or mushroom. Pastry was hard at the edges, mash had no butter in it and the gravy was tasteless. Was so looking forward to an inspiring meal but left underwhelmed. I suppose if you shifted a meal with double pie it would get you through the afternoon on a manual job. Seriously if they had pies from our local tripe and sandwich shop particularly the steak and cowheel broken over the back of buttered mash the turnover would double.

Firstly I never write reviews. But I believe that this restaurant deserves my time and effort to write this one . I originally come from Battersea in London. And I was brought up on pie mash & licquer as a child. I had just visited the Greenwich Planaterium when I saw the Goddards pie mash& licquer signage. so I thought that I would give it a try . To be honest I was not expecting much from my lunch here as a few years ago I visited a pie &mash shop closer to where I originally lived (Battersea ) and was very dissapointed with the food .But right from the moment that I walked through Goddards door seeing the traditional benches the ambience that you feel. And the friendly service that I received from the young girl that served me right down to the hot traditional pie mash & licquer that was how I remember it (The pie was proper minced beef with the pastry topping as I remember it .The mash was better than I remember more tasty & smooth and the Licquer sauce was thick and flavourful as it should be. My meal was Delicious . I believe that what ever country you come from to visit London IF you truly want to experience what Londoners traditionally ate when they where growing up and want the 100% traditional pie mash& Licquer experience with ambience and delicious food and friendly service and numerous tourist places to visit right on Goddards door step I can honestly say that I believe this to be the most traditional Delicious tasting friendly pie mash & licquer shop in London Which before I left I told the man that was cooking the pies behind the counter my views on the restaurant and that I would be writing a review of this fantastic reasonably priced restaurant of which I will most deffinetly will be visiting again when I am in London Please dont just take my word for it . Visit it and Taste for yourself . It is only a 2 minuite walk from the Maritime Museum in Greenwich Bob Clack Milton Keynes England

We went to Greenwich with 3 generations from Canada. We had to try pie and Mash in a proper shop. The pies were lovely and the mash was nice. The gravy and liquor were lovely and plentiful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The prices were good as well, 1 pound for a cup of tea in London is practically unheard of nowadays, especially in a tourist area like Greenwich. The location is lovely, right on Greenwich market next to the Cutty Sark. The whole place is steeped in history. It’s not a fancy restaurant by any stretch of the imagination, but for good value honest to god good old fashioned food, this is the place to visit.

To be a real eastender you have to like pie and mash. Difficult if you’re a vegetarian but thankfully the good people at Goddards cater for vegetarians with a decent pie. Excellent mash. Apparently to be a real local you have to have liquor not gravy. I had gravy though. Lovely gravy it was.

Greenwich
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.
