What a Year for Awards!

We’ve had an incredible few years for awards and have picked up over 49 accolades, making 2017 one of our most successful years to date!

Among others we’ve been honoured at the Quality Food Awards, Grocer Food & Drink Awards, the Great Taste Awards, and took home ten prizes – including eight first places – at the recent Melton & Belvoir Agricultural Society Show.

We’re thrilled to have had such great recognition this year. Here are a few photos of chief pie-maker Ian and the team celebrating at our Leicester shop.

Our pork pies are best served at room temperature. So take your pork pie out of the fridge half an hour before serving for the optimal flavour.
