We are one of the country’s few bakeries specialising in the production of the authentic Melton Mowbray Pork Pie.
In fact we make and bake 80% of all of the UK’s Melton Mowbray Pork Pies and are one of the founding members of the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Association which was granted Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status in 2009.
At Abbey Bakery, which is where the Walker & Son journey began in the early 1800s, our dedicated team produce over 40 tonnes of the highest quality pastry every day. Our pies are then expertly crafted and baked at our main site, Charnwood Bakery, a few miles away in North Leicester.
We also have a Walker & Son Pie Shop and Deli in Leicester city centre, continuing the tradition of Walkers as a favourite with Leicester shoppers for over 190 years. Aside from our iconic pies and sausages, the shop also serves up deli favourites such as cheese, ham, chutney and bread and also features a hot ‘food-to-go’ counter.
