Goddard's Pies shop returns to Greenwich

News Shopper: The old Goddard's shop The old Goddard's shop

A FAMILY-OWNED pie company returns to Greenwich today - 60 years after opening their first shop in the area.

Goddard’s Pies was founded in 1890 by Alfred Goddard in Deptford.

A second shop was opened in Greenwich in 1952, the same year the Cutty Sark was placed in dry dock.

The Greenwich shop was sold in 2006 while the company concentrated on their wholesale business but now they’re back in the centre of town.

Goddard's at Greenwich is being run by Alfred’s great-grandsons, Jeff and Kane Goddard.

The new premises at 22 King William Walk, Greenwich, boasts two floors and 100 seats.

They still serve the traditional pie, mash and liquor but there is a range of options on offer including pasties, sausage rolls and vegetarian pies.

For the more adventurous customer, there is even the chance to try the classic jellied eel.

Jeff and Kane Goddard said: "It's good to be back in Greenwich because it's been too long.

"We hope to see some of our old regulars and we want to establish ourselves back into the Greenwich community because it's where we belong."
