Product Description

  • Seasoned uncured pork encase 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."
  • 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.

A faultless pie in my opinion and well trying.

5 stars

As a great fan of Pork Pies I like to try as many different ones as I can. This is the first from Dickinson & Morris that I've had. The pie felt good and solid out of the wrapper and the pastry was firm but not overly brittle when cutting. The meat had a nice appearance and smell and there was a reasonable amount of jelly (my very favourite part). The pie tasted (IMHO) exactly as it should and due to the well packed contents it was very filling. I had this both on its own and with some wholegrain mustard. This is certainly one of my favourites and I will certainly buy it again.

Exactly as it should be

5 stars

This pie is what I remember a pork pie used to taste and look like. It actually has proper jelly around the filling. The pastry has the right 'crunch' to it. The meat... well that is just out standing! Please Tesco's don't mess this up by not stocking it for very long. It's a first rate product and very much appreciated .

Not very nice....horrible taste and texture

1 stars

I was looking forward to this after buying it before and rather liking it. This time however, it was not nice....not nice at all. The pastry was fine but the meat was a horrible grey colour and tasted so stale and grainy in texture...it was very unpleasant and I actually spat it out, something I very rarely do, even with things I am not too fond of! I just did not want to swallow this! What a disappointment and not cheap, either! I certainly will not be buying this again.

I won't buy it again

The meat was awful, gristly and not pleasant. The own brand pork pie is vastly better than this one.

Great Pie!
