Product Description

  • Seasoned uncured pork encased in a pastry case.
  • "Our story starts with an amazing woman"
  • Mary Dickinson (1768 to 1841)
  • Considered the originator of the hand raised Melton Mowbray pork pie, Mary is credited with using the first wooden dolly to raise a pastry case.
  • Mary's method has stood the test of time and she is the reason the Melton Mowbray Pork Pies we all know and love look the way they do."
  • Read more about out story below....
  • Jump forward to 1851, the year of the great exhibition and the height of Britain's Industrial Revolution. John Dickinson, Mary's grandson, opens his bakery in Nottingham Street, Melton Mowbray.
  • John's bakery is exactly where Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe is today. In the 1880's John Dickinson took under his wing an apprentice, Joseph Morris, saving Joseph from the local workhouse. The two worked so well together that in 1885 John added Joseph's name to the business and so the Dickinson & Morris pork pie you have in your hand was born.

Full of gristle

1 stars

Poor quality meat and loads of gristle. Not small pieces either, quite substantial in size Very peppery too - is this to also hide the poor quality of meat that was possibly destined for dog food?

Soggy grey pie

1 stars

When I cut into this pie I found that the meat was not the pink colour it should be but grey all over the outside with a slightly pinky colour towards the middle. The crust was not crusty but soft. I do not recommend this pie. It was not good value for money as I was put off eating it by the colour.

Too dry, no jelly, bones, and far too much pepper.

Too dry, no jelly, bones, and far too much pepper.

Not good enough

2 stars

An OK pork pie but with several reservations. Crust not crunchy enough, very little jelly inside and the pork had far too much pepper (and I like a peppery pork pie). On balance, I would not buy this again.


1 stars

This is not a nice pie the pasty is OK (just), but thats where the good news ends. The inside has very little jelly and the meat is mostly fat. Dont bother wasting your money on this.

Why the palm oil?

2 stars

"The two worked so well together that in 1885 John added Joseph's name to the business and so the Dickinson & Morris pork pie you have in your hand was born" I doubt that Palm oil was used in the original pies, so why use it now? Very disappointing.

Really very disappointed with this large Pork Pie

1 stars

Really very disappointed with this large Pork Pie and would never buy again even if I was really hungry. Well in date with 8 days to go, but top pastry was soft, dry and tasteless with the rest of the pastry hard, dry and tasteless. The meat was also dry, hard and without any taste at all other than a slight taste of pepper, let alone a pork pie flavour and where is the jelly? just a dry, pale grey tasteless inside. This doesn't say much for the quality control nor will it do Tescos reputation any good to stock what appears to be such an inconsistant quality product. I tried all parts of the pie and couldn't eat any of it. Truly an awful pie.

Soft pastry, no jelly

3 stars

Got to say my last one was more disappointing than usual. No jelly at all and the pastry was distinctly not hot water crust pastry- it had no crunch at all. But it was, in all honesty, a typical supermarket porrk pie. Going into lockdown again I think I would rather buy the pack of 4 tesco pies which dont pretend to be anything but a quick snack with no pretences But if i can walk uphill to my local butcher on the right day i can buy a delish real one!

not nice

2 stars

the crust was lovely but the inside was glutenous not very nice at all.

Delicious but could be even better.

5 stars

An excellent pork pie the only improvement would be a 3% to 5% increase in the 'jelly' content. I must agree with others who have mentioned this as being a major part of a likeable pork pie. No points deducted though as Dickinson Morris have been around long enough to know what is good. Perhaps a compromise would be to make a pie with extra jelly as an option? Trial this and see. How hard is it add a bit more or even have a custom range? Delicious!
