Service was awful. Felt like we were being rushed out at the end of our meal.

“Best Pies Around”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

Sweeney Todds has been the same for nearly 40 years and I hope it never changes. The pies are great and it is a family run establishment that thrives on its regular customers who don't need mod cons, just a good atmosphere and good food.
