Individual Melton Mowbray Pork PieIndividual Melton Mowbray Pork Pie
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 was born.

Online Order Delivery Charges:
Some of our products are at room temperature and can be posted to many countries around the world, keeping the delivery charge to a minimum. Please note that perishable items (e.g. pork pies, sausage etc), need to be kept chilled and and delivered in a chilled condition.To ensure this happens:
- all items (both perishable and non perishable) are blast chilled to 0oC
- they are then packed (at that temperature) into insulated (polystyrene) boxes
- frozen ice packs are placed into the box to delay the items becoming warm
- shredded paper is used to prevent the items moving about inside the box during transit
- the package is delivered within 24 hours to UK mainland adresses by a courier (Fedex). Delivery days are Tuesday - Friday
Consequently the cost of delivery is £12.50 per delivery address. Our pork pies and sausages are usually delivered with a life of 6 days.
Your Delivery Address:
Please give careful thought to your delivery address. Delivery for chilled goods is only available between Tuesday and Friday (inclusive) and for UK mainland addresses only. Our courier usually delivers between 08.30 - 17.30 and a signature is required from someone at your delivery address, or possibly a next door neighbour. If delivering to your home is inconvenient (because nobody will be there), then perhaps consider delivery to an alternative address (e.g. to a friend or work), so that a signature can be obtained.
If for some reason no-one is available to take receipt & give a signature then our courier will leave your package in a safe place (rather than return it to the depot).
