A few celebrity faces popped their heads into Robin’s pie and mash shop in Wanstead after it re-opened following an extension to the store.

The shop in High Street, is part of the well-known company that started in 1929, and has been closed for several months to allow builders to create a conservatory style extension to the store.

Refurbishments mean that 20 more customers will be able to sit and enjoy their pie, mash and eels, and June Robins - owner of the store - said that they even had a few celebrities turn up on the opening day.

The store re-opened on Wednesday, February 21, and June told the Recorder: “I can’t tell you who it was but we had a few famous faces come down, they have done for years, but more importantly we had a lot of our regulars come in, and they were absolutely delighted with the new store.”
