About us

Our business model is a little different to most other bakers in so much as some years ago we decided to only make pies that we would wish to eat ourselves not pies driven by a price.

To achieve this we undertook the whole process of making every component of each pie from the short and puff pastry to all of the fillings using family recipes some of which go back 40 years, no additives or preservatives are used, and only local produce and fresh ingredients.

Our pies have won a large number of awards in both the Great British Pie Awards that takes place every year in Melton Mowbray and the Taste Awards. This year alone (2020) we were awarded the 2nd highest total of awards (15) for any one producer in our category.

All our pies, meat puddings and quiches are made fresh daily to your order.

Pub Range Pies 320grams

This range takes its name from our original customers’ requirements of making a pie that their customers would believe the pie was made in their own kitchen.

These are a real hearty pie weighing an at an average weight of 320 grams and are not the type of pie a baker would make if an accountant was running the business.

There are numerous multi-award winners amongst this range which includes vegan and vegetarian options.

As with with most of our pies and suet puddings we recommend that you serve your own separate jug of gravy as we tend to fill our products with which ever filling you have chosen rather than pad the pie or pudding out with gravy.

 

 

Our Famous Fresh Fully Cooked Steamed Meat Puddings 420grams

Please note these Puds are fresh not frozen.  We have been making these Puds for years and we recently extended our offering making a total of 6 scrumptious different fillings, these are as good as your old granny would have made.

Fully cooked they are simple to reheat 4 or 5 minutes in your microwave just follow the instructions that come with the Puds.  (Can also be reheated in a Bain Marie in the oven 40 minutes)

Deli Range Pies 220 grams

A smaller version of its big brother “Pub Pie”, but made with the same loving care.

 

Hand Raised Pork Pies

Some 40 years ago this Company’s founders devised the recipes and method for the making of these Pork Pies.  We have never had the need to change anything that they did!

All our hand raised Pork Pies are exactly that, not many can master Hot Water pastry a skill that is normally passed down the generations nor the correct way to put jelly into the pie to compliment the finished product but we still have Andy and David here both of whom know a thing or two about keeping these traditions alive.

We offer 5 different types of individual pork based pies and 3 different 2.5 kilo Gala Pies.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon will I receive my pies after ordering?

Your order will be with you within 3 working days of ordering. All the pies and puddings are made fresh to order.

 

How long do the pies keep in the fridge?

Pies come with a minimum of 7 days refridgerated life.

 

Can I freeze the pies?

You can freeze all of our products even our pork pies, with one exception, the Special Occasion & Birthday Celebration pie 2.5 kilo.

What temperature do I set the oven?

185c for 20-25 mins. Always ensure the pie is piping hot before consuming. If you prefer a crispier pastry, you may want to take the pie out of the foil to reheat.

Can the pub range pies be cooked from frozen?

No, do not reheat from frozen. It is best to defrost the pies by leaving them in the fridge overnight.

Can I microwave the pub range pie?

For best results we recommend reheating in a conventional oven

How do I reheat the suet meat puddings?

Place the Pudding on a microwaveable dish pastry side down (leaving the black container on the pudding ) add water to the dish say a fifth of a cup, this will cause the pastry lid to swell sealing the pudding in the container and preventing the delicious filling from spilling out.

Microwave for 4 minutes on full power, leave to stand for 2 minutes, the pudding needs to be piping hot and we recommend the core temperature be 72 degrees.

Using a kitchen slice remove the pudding from the dish leaving the residual water in the dish. Place the pudding on a plate, remove the black container and you are ready to serve. Like our PUB RANGE pie we recommend serving a separate jug of gravy with our puds, for presentation pour a small amount over the top of the pudding prior to serving.

Our Puds can also be reheated in the traditional way by placing in a Bain Marie, we recommend this way if serving a number of people.

Preheat oven to Electric 180 degrees or Gas mk4, using a roasting dish place puddings (in the black container ) in the dish pastry side facing up. Fill the roasting dish with hot water halfway up the side of the black containers, cover roasting dish tightly with foil and place in the oven.

The object here is to reheat the Puds by steam and the reheating time will depend on how hot the water is that you put in the dish, the Puds need to be piping hot to 72 degrees, say 25/30 minutes in the oven, don’t worry if you leave in longer as this method of reheating will not spoil the product.

Make sure you take care by using oven gloves both for placing in the oven and for removing from the oven, bearing in mind that the dish contains very hot water.

Leave the pub range pies in the foil or not?

It depends. If you prefer a crispier pastry, you may want to take the pie out of the foil to reheat.

Do you supply Gluten Free products?

Unfortunatly not at this time.
