Our Proud Heritage

Our Heritage


Walker & Son was founded in Leicester in 1824 by Mark Walker, who,  along with his son, opened a butchers shop on Leicester High Street.  In the early days their sausages were a hit,  but then they built a bakery and the famous Walkers pork pie was born!

What a Year for Awards!

We’ve had an incredible year for awards and have picked up over 25 industry accolades in total, making 2015 one of our most successful years to date!

Among others we’ve been honoured at the 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.
