Bit of a sweeping comment that Hugh ;-) ..... they're from Ged Bell (award winning) Pie Maker in York ... Spot-on!

Where do the pies come from?

If they’re not Percy Turner's Pork Pie Appreciation. Then they’re no good, South Yorkshire butchers are just better

I was going to ask that Hugh Kelly lol 😂

Me and you have our priorities right Gary Van Jackson 😂❤️😍
