Mrs King’s Pork Pies

Meat, poultry & game, Street food, Three Crown Square

When Elizabeth King started making pork pies back in 1853, little did she realise exactly what she was setting in motion. And she would probably have been shocked—and more than a little proud—if she knew that her name would be immortalised at one of the world’s most famous markets more than a century and half later.

These Melton Mowbray pies now have dedicated PGI status, meaning they can only be made in a particular way in a specific area of Nottinghamshire. Each pie uses fresh pork and rich jelly, cooked inside golden brown pastry.
