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.

In 1851, John Dickinson, Mary’s Grandson, opens his bakery in Nottingham Street, Melton Mowbray and started making pork pies. John’s bakery is exactly where Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe is today.

In the 1880’s John Dickinson took on Joseph Morris, saving him from the local workhouse. John added Joseph’s name to the business in 1885 and Dickinson & Morris was born.

‘THE REST, AS THEY SAY, IS HISTORY’
