I stopped by there for lunch and picked up (to go) a beef and onion pie and a special pie with lamb and some offal (I don't recall which cut), that one was good too but the beef and onion was my favorite. I believe they do at least one dessert pie as well but I didn't try it. They also have a small selection of British groceries: Lyle's Golden Syrup, Colman's mustard, Pressed Cod Roe (?).

How was the portion size? Is one pie a fairly hearty meal?

The lamb one was, the beef and onion one was a little smaller. But I got them to go, so I just got the pies themselves. If you dine in, you also get a side of mashed potatoes and a couple other accompaniments too I think.

I was led to believe that there is little room in the shop, and that there are only a few tables to eat in, and they are really more of a take away restaurant. Is that correct?

It's a small place for sure, it's in the old cupcake shop at the corner of Passyunk and Mifflin. If I recall, there were 4 tables, maybe 10-12 seats total? You can definitely sit down though.

Glad to some activity hereabouts.

 

Stargazy is brilliant.  Totally authentic pub fare but bring your own ale. Too small for darts, but football is on the telly on Saturday mornings.

Thanks so much for the link! That seals the deal. I'm there this weekend. Looks way better than I even imagined.

I stopped by here again for lunch a week or so ago. There are about 10 seats. I split the "Noah's Ark" (2 pies, 2 servings of mashed potatoes and parsley liquor) with another person, it was to say the least a very hearty lunch for each of us. I still haven't braved the jellied eels, but I did get an apple pie to go, very good.

Finally made it to Stargazy. It met all my expectations. Traditional pie, mash, and parsley liquor was delicious. A very filling meal for only $9.00. I'm looking forward to trying other variations, though I don't see the jellied eels in my future.
