Posted onPosted on 27th Sep

Bowring Butchers again rose to the top by being named supreme champion at the British Pie Awards. Its meat and potato pie beat more than 800 other entries for the top accolade.

The butchers, which has shops in Mansfield Woodhouse and Shirebrook amongst others, selling produce raised on its Warsop farm, also overcame 36 contenders in the best beef and cheese pie category with its steak and stilton bake.

Matthew O’Callaghan, chairman of the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Association and host of the British Pie Awards, said: “Bowring Butchers submitted a truly scrumptious pie.”

George Bowring, joint owner of Bowring Butchers, said: “We have won golds before but we never expected to win the big one. I think we won because it has perfect pastry and is perfectly cooked and perfectly glazed”

His father, Robert Bowring, is who retired last year, added: “We started making pies 35 years ago and meat and potato has always come first.”
