Description

This month’s film by local historian Michael Holland looks at the history of the pie and mash restaurant, Arments. Through personal testimony, interviews and often hilarious anecdotes, the viewer gets a fascinating insight into a restaurant culture that has little changed over the decades. Arments’ first shop was located at 386 Walworth Road from 1914. They had a number of restaurants all around the Walworth Road area and have been serving their pie and mash from their shop on Westmoreland Road for decades. The restaurant is very much part of the fabric of the community and a must for die-hard pie and mash lovers who would not eat anywhere else. These customers reveal their rituals around the culture of pie and mash eating and we discover why it is that people will travel from all over the country to eat at Arments and others will never miss a week without it. Such is the demand that those who cannot visit the restaurant can now order by post! Discover the reason why Arments was awarded the Blue Plaque in 2014 and is still going strong.
