Pastry too short, basically tough, flavourless filling. Probably not going to be the taste of Cornwall you are after. Be a smart visitor, visit another pastie shop.

If you want to taste a good quality Cornish pasty this is the place. That are awesome and weigh a ton. Even ordered some for delivery for Christmas. Well worth it 😀

My first visit to Pengenna Pasties for two years or so. Though the pasties are not cheap they are large and tasted good. The vegetarian pasty is also vegan for those who require this. The addition of a sachet of mustard would be great (hint, hint)

We last had Pasties from here two years ago and they were by far the best we found in St Ives. This time though we were both disappointed. The pastry was good but that is as far as it went. We had traditional pasties but the filling was bland and completely tasteless. Neither of us finished them, they went in... More

We are in Cornwall for a week's break and a good pasty was on our "bucket list" This wasn't! It took 15 minutes for us to buy a couple (only two others in front of us in the Q!) The traditional ones we tried were uninspiring! The pastry was OK and the seagulls enjoyed it. We fed most of the... More

We grabbed some steak pasties after some rave reviews on tripadvisor and ate them on the beach. The pasties were large, filling and hit the spot. It would be good if they came in different sizes as the kids didn't eat all of theirs. At £4 each they are sizeable, but they were not as good as others we tried... More

We always get our scones from here when we visit St Ives & they are absolutely beautiful. I can also recommend their Shortbread too. I picked up a leaflet from them last week for ordering on-line so we can enjoy their products all year round & not just when we are on holiday.

We picked up two pasties planning on eating them on the train the next day. Absolutely wonderful -- but these pasties are BIG. We could only make it through one -- so you may want to plan on splitting these in half and sharing them! Very friendly and helpful staff.

Was able to pop in and buy some jars as gifts for my partner and for my mum. Lady briefly explained the bestsellers and that they were locally made. Quick service, and lovely viewing area to see pasties etc being made. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for an authentic Cornish gift for family or friends!

We buy from here everytime were in St Ives and this time we brought 6 to take home, afraid to say they were not so good, lacking seasoning and were so dry. we love watching them make the pasties and over the years we have brought many, were returning soon and we will buy again don't let your popularity ruin...
