This Year’s British Pie Awards Winner – Leeson Family Butcher

Most of us Brits love a pork pie, and the Leeson Family Butcher came out on top at this year’s British Pie Awards, walking home with gold for Best Pork Pie! 

Amazingly, the family butchers have a collection of over 100 different awards just for their pork pies and sausages. 

Based in the East Midlands, Leeson Family Butchers have been alive and kicking for over 30 years since they opened their Rutland-based shop in 1998. 

The owner, Steve, has been entering baking competitions since 1997 and has been finessing his pie-making skills ever since. 

They’ve had people visit specifically to try their infamous pork pies from around the world. 

To keep up with the high demand, they are baking fresh batches of pork pies every day to keep up with their huge volume of orders and walk-ins, and their recent Award win firmly cements this reputation.
