Skipton Pork Pies
25th January 2013
Skipton has a very famous Pork Pie shop called Stanforth’s located on Mill Street, practically opposite the Castle Pub. Many people reckon that Stanforth’s pork pies are the finest pork pie in Yorkshire!
Having one of the best pork pie shops close by to the holiday cottage would be something to let visitors know, but what they actually need to know, if that they are actually spoilt for choice!!
Skipton also has Farmhouse Fare on the High Street which is also an awarding pork pie establishment. In December 2012, they won their third successive supreme championship at the annual Great Northern Pork Pie Competition.
If that isn’t enough, Drake & Macefield butchers also sell award winning pies. They recently won one of only seven diamond awards presented in the annual Smithfield Awards, run by the Q Guild, but admittedly this was for their Steak & Kidney Pie and not for their delicious pork pies.
So, if you fancy some fast food with a difference, treat yourself to a Pork Pie, you’ll find plenty of other pie lovers to converse with outside the above shops.
