This little hidden gem in Whitby serves up some of the tastiest pies in Yorkshire whilst transporting you back to 1940s England. If you’re a fan of crusty pastry dripping in fantastic gravy then you won’t want to give this a miss,
Humble Pie ‘n’ Mash is located on Church Street in Whitby the popular seaside resort that sees thousands of people flock to every year to enjoy their tasty pies in a beautiful setting.
The quaint cafe transports you back to 1940s, but don’t worry they aren’t rationing. They serve up a hearty dose of rich flavoured pies served with smooth mash and either mushy or garden peas with a splash of gravy of course.
On every table is a bottle of Hendos relish, so you can have the ultimate Yorkshire experience. You have a great choice of pies to select from. We got stuck into the peppered steak and a potato pie, before finishing off with the jam roly poly.
Other pies on offer at Humble Pie ‘n’ Mash include slow-braised steak & kidney in rich gravy; mince beef & onion; chicken, bacon and onion; creamy chicken and leak along with some veggie options as well.
Veggie and vegan options include roast veg and goats cheese and a romany homily pie which is potatoes, garlic, cheese, spices and parsley.
The pies which are accompanied with mash, either garden pies or mushy peas and gravy will set you back just £11.99 and they have a range of drink options from soft drinks, to tea and coffee as well.
Once we’d seen off our pies it was on to dessert. The jam Roly Poly took us right back to our childhood in the school canteen. A good old steaming pud with thick custard was absolute bliss. And, they have a range of other desserts to choose from including a classic sticky toffee pudding.

The pie experience is tightened by the surroundings which include a range of nostalgic nick necks including old tins and ornaments and a roaring open fire, which was great for us as it was blowing a gale outside when we visited.
If you’re looking to visit Whitby this summer, we couldn’t recommend that you visit Humble Pie ‘n’ Mash enough. It’s got to be one of the best pies I’ve eaten in Yorkshire!
