OUR FIVE COLD EATING PIES

Authentic Melton Mowbray Pork Pies

AUTHENTIC MELTON MOWBRAY PORK PIES - AWARD WINNER
The recipe for our ‘Authentic Melton Mowbray Pork Pies’ dates back to 1853 - delicious then and delicious now.

We start by carefully making the very best hot water crust pastry, bringing boiling water and lard together then pouring onto strong wheat flour, with a little sea salt to taste. This is then allowed to rest overnight ready for pie making - no rushing!

We only use fresh shoulder joint cuts for our pies, all from British pigs, hand seasoned to our family recipe. Wonderful, tasty, savoury jelly fills the pie, made from the juices of the slowly simmered trotter stock. Baked to perfection, the result is rich golden brown pastry with its characteristic belly shape which, when cut open, reveals the succulent uncured pork with a peppery aftertaste, surrounded by soft jelly stock. Delicious eaten cold on its own or with a crisp salad, washed down with a glass of real ale. Quite simply England’s finest.

Available in 2 sizes to suit your needs - or appetite!

GAME PIE
For real game lovers! This delicious pie brings together three great tasting meats, Venison, Rabbit and Wood Pigeon, carefully seasoned with sea salt and white pepper for a distinctive taste experience.
