A few of us visited this shop 'off season' on Friday, 26th July 2002. It was unreasonably yet seasonably hot that day; not perfect conditions for eating large, but I retain a very pleasant impression. So, there was a little bit of expectation on this, the first official visit of the club to 'Traditional'.

Take a look in the mirror and you will see fresh pies made daily on the premises; this proved to be no empty boast.

There was an orderly queue inside this bustling shop, which was a good sign. Once served, we took our brimming plates and bowls to a formica-topped 'eating station' and proceeded to chow down. A logjam of hungry pensioners was created by Richard Lucas's order, which took a good deal longer than most to process. It took a good deal longer for him to 'process' it as well.

We all passed comment on the tastiness of the pies, which prompted some 'seconds' for me and Mr Hayes.

The light and airy dining room, was a-throb with collective mastication, ingurgitation, peristalsis and digestion, although anyone in need of ensuing emiction or evacuation should take note of the helpful notice attached to the soft drink dispenser. (Sorry about the camera-shake.)

I don't think there were any bogs down that alley neither.

What impressed me the most about 'Traditional' was the broad age range and cultural diversity of its diners. It's enough to give you hope that there is a future in Pie and Mash.

Here you can just see the shop in a shady corner of the All Saints Precinct, the centrepiece of which is this fountain — which looks like someone hammered some outsize nails into the local water main.

And there on the far right is the spire of All Saints Church, just visible from the DLR Station.

This proved to be an enjoyable excursion out of the centre of London, and I also commend it to anyone unimpressed by the corporate comestibles of nearby Canary Wharf.
