English Meat Pies in Jacksonville

Having just seen Sweeney Todd I have a craving for meat pies like those shown in the film. Anyone know where I can get some in Jacksonville (without human flesh of course)?

    A proper English meat pie 'without human flesh' in Jacksonville?
    Hmmmmm, that only leaves Stouffer's!

      King's Head British Pub. It's on US 1 almost to St. Augustine. The decor is tacky but their Lancaster(sp) Turnover is delicious and contains lamb, carrots, celery, onions, mushrooms and peas. You can't miss it because it has a red double decker bus parked out front.

      I've not tried the food at the London Bridge across the street from the old main library, but it's a great place to have a pint and watch the fireworks. The view is somewhat obstructed, but that is countered by the great acoustics of the sound bouncing off the library. The menu has stuff like Bangers and Mash so there may be meat pies as well.
