    Let's Raise Lots of Money!

    We are delighted to have teamed up with the Rainbow Trust Children's Charity. Look out for their collection pots in all of our stores for loose change and cash donations which will be gratefully accepted.

    Plus we are also pledging 10p from every 'Kid's Meal' sold in the below shops to the Rainbow Trust.

    Banbury
    Bath
    Canterbury
    Chichester
    Chippenham
    Cirencester

    This is a charity very close to our hearts, so we're thrilled to already be raising money in our shops for this amazing group of people.

    About The Rainbow Trust
    Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity provides emotional and practical support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness. Their help is immediate and available for families 24-hours a day, providing the whole family with tailored high quality support for as long as they need it.

    This support comes from Family Support Workers who perform a role most people couldn’t imagine. They maintain a sense of normality for the family by helping with hospital trips, performing household duties, taking the siblings to school and in many cases providing care during the final stages of a child’s life, helping with funeral arrangements and bereavement support.

    Rainbow Trust relies heavily on voluntary donations and through the generosity of their supporters they currently help around 1,300 families a year. Their vision is that one day all terminally ill children will have access to a Rainbow Trust Family Support Worker.

    Cornish & Proud!
    Cornish & Proud!

    We are Heads and Hearts, Cornish and Proud!

    We are Worldwide famous for our multi award winning Traditional Cornish pasty.

    It is our signature product, made daily in West Cornwall and hand crimped by hand. Our Traditional Cornish Pasty is the leader of the rest of our pasty pack and each and every one of our pasties are champions of Cornwall.

    We Love Cornwall!

    To go hand in hand with our true love of Cornwall, we are now stocking a striking range of some of the best Cornish products from outstanding Cornish producers and artisans.

    You'll find our handpicked selection in selected West Cornwall Food Co's on the high street but keep an eye out! We're intending to roll our brand new Cornish shopping experience out to all high street shops soon!

    Perfect to pick up for a gift or a delicious Cornish treat at home.

    Some of our favourites include Rosemary & Cornish Sea Salt by Simply Cornish Savoury Biscuits, Cornish Ale Chutney by Halzephron Herb Farm and Pork Rillette with Sloe Gin by Cornish Charcuterie topped with a sprinkle of Cornish Sea Salt of course! To finish our Cornish snack? A couple of Simply Cornish's Strawberries & Clotted Cream Shortbread with a cup of our St Just Organic Coffee!

    Here's our mini introduction to some of the producers and Cornish brands you can expect to see on our shelves.

    Cornish Charcuterie
    Artisan producers of award winning British Charcuterie crafted from British Lop pork from pigs born and reared at Norton Barton. Cornish Charcuterie is based at Norton Barton Farm located just outside Bude in North Cornwall.

    Halzephron Herb Farm
    The name 'Halzephron' is derived from the old Cornish language meaning 'Cliffs of Hell'.  Halzephron Herb Farm was founded in the kitchen of the farmhouse set above these cliffs at Gunwalloe, where in the late 15th, early 16th century the area was renowned for wreckers, hence the rather scary name! They have moved from Gunwalloe and are now based a few miles away at St Keverne, within the grounds of Roskillys organic farm.

    Simply Cornish
    Simply Cornish are deliciously tasty baked goods made by Warrens Bakery. Warrens is Cornwall’s oldest commercial bakery and the world’s oldest Cornish pasty producer. Established in St Just, West Cornwall (home of our St Just Organic Coffee!) in 1860, the bakery has operated as a family business for over 150 years and the Warrens family remain involved to this day.

    Cornish Sea Salt
    Cornish Sea Salt works with the ebb and flow of the tides and take great care of the sea creatures and coastal wildlife in protected waters.

    Taking fresh sea water from the ocean they carefully filter it using pioneering technology that removes all impurities, drawing out only pure salt with the minerals it contains as a saturated brine.

    They then blend this clever technology with traditional iron age methods by pouring the super salty brine into enormous vats, and gently heat them so that salt crystals gradually start to form on the surface. As the density of the crystals develops the salt sinks to the bottom of the brine. They then hand-harvest it at the perfect moment to get the crunchy texture and intense flavour of Cornish Sea Salt Original.

    Turnaround Success Continues
    The continued success of West Cornwall Pasty Co has been confirmed as the brand's latest financial statements are released for the year ending 25th March 2016.

The business has no institutional debt and at the year end it had £1.4m on deposit with its bankers.

    Executive Chairman Chris Peck comments, 'West Cornwall Pasty Co is a brand in high demand, our strategic shift towards a profile raising lifestyle approach has influenced a robust fast track growth plan especially in the travel and sports sector with a proven track record of significant impact. Continued investment into strong communication and engagement with our expanding customer base, innovating with new headline products and exciting new generation store refurbishments has placed the spotlight well and truly on all brand activity both digitally and at store level.'

    Breaking News: Successful New Sales Channels
    Since the year end commercial progress has been continued at pace. Targeting new sales channels have proven fruitful including retail designer outlets (McArthur Glenn, Swindon) and continuing to cover all bases in travel.

    Bold steps into the Gluten and Dairy Free market with a 'first of its kind' best-selling 'Everybody Pasty'. Named as a 'game changer' product the Everybody pasty is a premium pasty that tastes and has a texture just like normal wheat flour based pastry. The Everybody Pasty is baked in a specially designed bag, ensures the product stays free from cross contamination making it an ideal option for suffers of Coeliac Disease and avoiders of Gluten and Dairy. The Everybody pasty has given the brand another profile boost with record sales store side and recognition from retail multiples.

    West Cornwall Food Co launched with an extended product range including freshly made sandwiches and a luxury range of cakes. The first store to carry the new range is at Canterbury where sales since the changes were made, have risen to 50% up on last year. The second West Cornwall Food Co opened in August in Chichester. A roll-out of the successful concept is planned for 2016/17 to a number of other high street West Cornwall Pasty Co stores.

    Chris Peck comments, 'we are pleased with the results so far; since the year end trading remains very robust with LFL sales up in double digit growth. We expect another year of substantial profit growth, as we continue to innovate and engage with current and new customers. Our aim is, as ever to maintain quality products which are excellent value for money and to further inspire customers to engage with and enjoy the new direction of the brand.'

    We are delighted to feature in Men's Fitness Magazine -the go-to mag for all things good to keep tip top shape!

    We appear in a feature named 'The World's first Packed Lunch' - perfect really as we are the original food on the move.

    Here's what they say!
    'Packed lunches haven't always consisted of packets of crisps and cartons of Ribena.
    Before the industrial revolution and the advent of Tupperware if men wanted to eat during the day they had to get creative.'

    'Take the mighty Cornish pasty. This classic pastry parcel came to prominence as a lunchtime for tin miners during the 18th Century.
    It was ideal fuel for a gruelling day of manual labour, perfectly packaged in an edible outer.'

    West Cornwall Pasty Co
    'If you're trying to loose weight go for a West Cornwall Pasty Co wheatmeal vegetable pasty, a vegetarian friendly option which swaps blood sugar spiking white pastry for the wheatmeal variety to help limit fat storage and control hunger cravings.'

    We're Going For The Triple!
    We're Going For The Triple!

    We've been thrilled, honoured and privileged to take the title for Best Traditional Pasty in 2014 and 2015 at The World Pasty Championships hosted at The Eden Project in St Austell.

    We're going back this year with our Traditional Pasty to go for the Triple!

    Last year our Traditional Pasty represented us in the competition and was scored an impressive 92 points out of 100 by expert judges. We faced stiff competition with over 150 entries from an international line up.

    This year we're heading back to The World Pasty Championships with two entries. One is our Cornish Pasty and the other is the winner of our Pasty Dreamers competition, The Compton Pasty. Read more HERE for the full winning story!

    CORNISH PASTY
    Handmade in Cornwall. Nothing but the best lean skirt beef, diced not minced, with locally grown potato, turnip and onion with just the right amount of salt and pepper drizzled on top, carefully wrapped up in delicious flaky pastry made with British wheat with a hand crimped crust.

    COMPTON PASTY
    Juicy pork and beef meatballs in a tomato salsa with red peppers, red onion, garlic and a touch of chorizo. Enriched with fresh mozzarella and Cornish Cheddar cheeses and Trewithen’s Cornish cream, all delicately seasoned with oregano, marjoram, paprika and fennel with a mild chilli kick. Wrapped up in our multi-award winning flaky pastry and a hand crimped crust to seal in the goodness! And of course The Compton Pasty is made in Cornwall!

    The World Pasty Championships are on the 5th of March 2016.  The annual celebration is always a showcase for home-grown musical and comedy talent and culminates in the much-anticipated Oggy Oscar ceremony – and this year it takes place on St Piran's Day! Read more HERE

    Wish us luck!

    Latest Company News
    Latest Company News

    Bringing you the latest news from WCPCO HQ.

    West Cornwall Pasty Co Ltd, the UK's largest pasty operator has announced impressive results following phase one of a dynamic repositioning period.

    The brand has become known for its multi award winning, handmade PGI status Cornish pasties and burgeoning own brand coffee label - St Just.

    Turnover for West Cornwall Pasty Co Ltd in the 50 week trading period ended 31st March 2015 was £12.5m generating an EBITDA of £551k. The management team are delighted with the turnaround, given under previous ownership the same business had lost over £800k, representing an improvement of over £1.3m in the space of just 12 months.

    Investment into a complete repositioning of the West Cornwall Pasty Co brand over the past year has paved the way for the fast track turnaround bolstered by strong customer communications at store level and vibrant, interactive customer communications on a digital level. Measurable results from new store designs, broader product ranges and simplification of pricing across the retail estate has given confidence for expansion of the retail estate in transport hubs, sporting venues and the leisure events market.

    This is a fresh trading period for the company, the first since the acquisition of 33 retail units, 2 seasonal sites and a substantial franchise agreement with MOTO Hospitality Limited from the Administrators (PWC) of West Cornwall Pasty Realisations Limited (In Administration) on 11 April 2014.

    Despite the challenging loss of two retail sites, where it was not possible to agree terms with the landlords to remain in occupation, growth strategies for the railway station estate have been put in place to compensate and are showing a strong sales performance.

    Other areas of successful growth include the West Cornwall Pasty Co Franchise which continues to grow with sales revenue up 20% on previous years. The company have teamed up SFC Events Ltd to broaden the profile of the brand and in turn generate profit at the UK’s premier sports and leisure events including Silverstone F1, The Open, Cheltenham, Wembley, Millennium Stadium, Twickenham, Reading & Leeds Festivals and the Goodwood Festival.

    Second phase strategies include expansion, development and growth of the company’s premium branded niche food proposition, that is focused on the 'Food-to-Go' market forming the central part of plans for 2016/17. The company's own brand coffee‘St Just’ hot drinks range that will also take centre stage.

    Further sales channels will continue to be explored for growth opportunities both within the UK and export markets either through brand licensing and product supply arrangement or wholly managed retail units.

    Hungry? The legend of The Wrath of Portreath
    Perhaps the most wicked of the giants was The Wrath of Portreath. he lived in a huge cavern known to sailors as his cupboard. he would wade out to sea , grab whole ships and take them back to his cupboard tied to his belt. Once back there he would devour the sailors for his supper.

    We say a Steak & Cornish Tribute Ale Pasty would have saved 'The Wrath' a whole lot of trouble...Plus - finest Cornish steak is a vast improvement on sailors anyday...We have a feeling that he would have enjoyed the Cornish Tribute Ale as well!

    Watch out for the Piskies!
    The Piskies were all identical little people, no higher than an inch tall. The wore red caps, white waistcoats, green stockings, and brown coats and trousers. On their feet they wore brightly polished, buckled shoes. The Piskies were good people who helped the old, but they were mischievous and played pranks on people.

    There isn't anything more Cornish than a Piskie and there is nothing more flavoursome than a Cornish Cheese & Onion Pasty.

    Avoid Bad luck!
    Tin miners had their own superstitions. If they met a bullhorn or snail on the way to work, they avoided ill luck by giving it some of their dinner

    We say that a crumb our Cornish Hand Crimped Pies are the perfect mealtime snack to dodge any bad luck...Of course the probability of seeing a frog or a snail en route to work is slightly slim...You never know!

    Always save a bit...
    The Bucca is the Cornish equivalent of Irish leprechauns and English and Scottish brownies. About two feet tall and grizzled, but not misshapen, they live beneath the ground. Here they wear tiny versions of standard miner's garb and commit random mischief, such as stealing a miner's unattended tools and food - they were often cast a small offering of food - usually the crust of a pasty - to appease their mischief making.,

    Our Traditional Cornish Pasty, the diamond in our pasty estate crown, our multi award winning Cornish recipe is too good to to share...But in this case we feel it absolutely necessary!

    Legendary Giant Hunger
    One giant in particular named Cormoran. With a growling stomach he would wade ashore and feast on cows and sheep stolen from the villagers but he met his match in a local boy named Jack who dug a deep pit in which Cormoran fell to his death.

    We have a feeling that Cormoran should have just called in for a delicious 'Make a Meal of it' A plate packed full of pasty, wedges or mash, peas or beans.

    The Legend of The Lady of the Lake
    Dozmary Pool on Bodmin Moor was thought by local people to be bottomless. It is said to be the lake, in Arthurian legend, that the mortally wounded King Arthur threw Excalibur after the fateful battle of Camlann against the scheming Mordred. A lady's hand rose from beneath the waves to catch the magical sword, before returning to the depths.

    We hear that the Lady of the Lake has been known to raise her hand to the passing traveller in case a brew of Cornish St Just coffee is to hand...Far Fetched? Us? No...

    The Football Association have commissioned WONDERKID which is a 20-minute short film that follows the inner turmoil of a young unnamed gay footballer as he comes to terms with his own identity, struggling to reconcile his sexuality with his issues with alcohol and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. WONDERKID provides an insight into the trauma caused by homophobia, and challenges preconceptions about what it is to be ‘masculine’.

    Tom's testimonial is also supporting two very worthy charities, Exeter Foundation and The Royal Marines Charity of which are very close to his heart.

    Tom Johnson said: "We are delighted by the calendar as it has far exceeded our expectation to the quality of photography and the kind generosity by the players and all the staff at Rockbeare Manor."

    "I am very excited and humbled about my testimonial year and cannot thank everyone enough in what they are doing for me."

The city is home to the University of Winchester and Winchester College, the oldest public school in the United Kingdom still to be using its original buildings.

    WCFCo Launches in Canterbury
    WCFCo Launches in Canterbury

    West Cornwall Pasty Co, the multi award winning brand and the UK's largest pasty operator, has chosen the high street of Canterbury to launch their brand new store concept.

    West Cornwall Food Co launched on Saturday 19th March in an impressive restoration and refurbishment of the former West Cornwall Pasty Co shop located on 22 The High Street.

    The new concept revolves around St Just - the brand's own organic fair-trade coffee range, freshly made sandwiches, cakes, doughnuts and cookies. Fans of the multi-award winning, handmade PGI status Cornish pasties that parent brand West Cornwall Pasty Co is world famous for, will be pleased to see a best sellers range of freshly baked pasties in store.

    Canterbury has been chosen from a number of high street contenders including sites in London to launch the new concept store.
    The bustling high street and high foot fall of both tourists and locals tipped the scales in Canterbury's favour for a number of reasons including a premium local feel.

    Chris Peck, Executive Chairman comments, 'The City's architecture has played a key part in deciding the location of the launch of our new concept from an interior and exterior design perspective. The goals for the new West Cornwall Food Co shop are to attract everyday customers, families, groups of friends and professionals looking for breakfast, great coffee, a satisfying fresh lunch, dinner and everything in between. The friendly corner shop feel and approachable nature of 22 High Street allows us a fantastic opportunity to reach out and meet everyone's needs with our comfortable seated area as well as our fast and efficient take-out service for those on the go'.

    The interior of West Cornwall Food Co is a beautiful transformation, making the most of existing original features and using heritage materials and fabrics to remind customers of the brand's strong Cornish heritage and commitment to provenance matched with quality and value. Special emphasis has been made to ensure both the interior and exterior are aesthetically pleasing, friendly, welcoming and focus on ease of service and outstanding product.

    The British Pie Awards
    The British Pie Awards

    We've entered two of our pasties into the British Pie Awards on the 9th of March 2016.

    A British Pie Award has become a badge of honour among experts in the craft so we're really excited to be entering!

    Wish us luck! We're going for gold with our best selling Traditional Cornish and our Pasty Dreamers Winner, The Compton Pasty.

    TRADITIONAL CORNISH PASTY
    Handmade in Cornwall. Nothing but the best lean skirt beef, diced not minced, with locally grown potato, turnip and onion with just the right amount of salt and pepper drizzled on top, carefully wrapped up in delicious flaky pastry made with British wheat with a hand crimped crust.

    COMPTON PASTY
    Juicy pork and beef meatballs in a tomato salsa with red peppers, red onion, garlic and a touch of chorizo. Enriched with fresh mozzarella and Cornish Cheddar cheeses and Trewithen’s Cornish cream, all delicately seasoned with oregano, marjoram, paprika and fennel with a mild chilli kick. Wrapped up in our multi-award winning flaky pastry and a hand crimped crust to seal in the goodness! And of course The Compton Pasty is made in Cornwall!

    The British Pie Awards
    An institution for pastry-connoisseurs country-wide. The annual event sees hundreds of pie-makers gather for a celebration and competition of this British culinary favourite. Held each year in Melton Mowbray, they are lucky enough to have a selection of the most knowledgeable figures in the industry on-hand presiding over the day’s proceedings.

    Pasty Dreamers. The Winner!
    Pasty Dreamers. The Winner!

    Cast your mind back to September 2015! We started a serious UK wide search for the next big pasty recipe with our Pasty Dreamers competition. It was a giant shout out to all dreamers who have ever wanted to see their dream pasty in the crust! We promised a starring role for the winning pasty in all West Cornwall Pasty Co shops for our customers to enjoy AND to have the added prestige of being entered into the World Pasty Championships in Cornwall in March 2016.

    This is the first time West Cornwall Pasty Co have run the competition and have had a phenomenal response! Judges narrowed the wild, wacky and downright delicious entries with ideas brimming from an English Breakfast Pasty, Paella Pasty to a Chicken Korma Pasty and even taking inspiration from the Cornish ocean with Mackerel and Sardines. We narrowed things down to a shortlist of 4 with the help of an expert panel before plumping for our winner!

    The Winning Pasty is...

    The COMPTON PASTY created by Mr Malcolm Mant.
    Juicy pork and beef meatballs in a tomato salsa with red peppers, red onion, garlic and a touch of chorizo. Enriched with fresh mozzarella and Cornish Cheddar Cheeses and Trewithen’s Cornish cream, all delicately seasoned with oregano, marjoram, paprika and fennel with a mild chilli kick. Wrapped up in our multi-award winning flaky pastry with a trademark hand crimped crust of course!

    We caught up with our winning pasty creator Malcolm Mant on his inspiration for the Compton Pasty.

    'You can't beat a traditional! But this one comes close! I learnt how to make pasties from my Great Granny Jessie, who was born and raised (like myself) in Plymouth - which is as close to Cornish as you can get, without being Cornish. She was making pasties for us until she died at 95 years of age. I still make them as an occasional special in my London pub, The Compton Arms, sticking true to the basics of the recipe she taught me at the age of 15.'

    Malcolm on finding out he's won...

    'Having entered for my own interests and a bit of fun, it was a rather pleasant surprise to find out I'd actually won the thing!  Really looking forward to the trip back to the West Country in March - and really rather overwhelmed to find my creation entered into the World Pasty Championship!'

    Malcolm will be joining the West Cornwall Pasty Co team at the Eden Project in Cornwall for the heats and the grand final of the World Pasty Championships and will be living it up at the rather beautiful Carlyon Bay Hotel.

    Congratulations Malcolm and Good Luck!

    The Compton Pasty is the star of February in store! Call in and ask for one by name!*

    We're pleased to feature in the industries voice – QSR online – as they document our progress over the last year.

    EXCLUSIVE: How West Cornwall Pasty Company Managed their Turnaround and their Future Plans

    In 2014, West Cornwall Pasty Company went into administration before being bought out by private equity. Since that time, new management has worked hard to turn the brand around with a new focus, new look and a focus on an enhanced product offering.
    We went to find out how they went about turning the brand around, and their plans for the future.

    QSR: How has the company changed post its troubles last year? What are you doing differently?
    'Change started with the people. A new management team was established from a mixture of people from outside the business (2 new executive Directors) and some of the exceptional young creative members of old business, who had not been able to make a real difference under the previous regime.'

    Our new York Shop!
    Our new York Shop!

    Before you get REALLY excited – we're  not talking about New York here! We're talking about our brand new look for our York shop in York Station – so naturally even more exciting!

    As part of our on-going campaign to make your experience at any West Cornwall Pasty Co shop an even better one we have been investing into our interiors and exteriors. York is our latest completed refurbishment. 

    Find our newly refurbished shop in the beautiful Grade 2 Star rated building inside the main station entrance just off Platform 3.

    So let us tell you about our new shop.

    Upon opening in 1877, York station was the largest in the world. We wanted to embrace the heritage of the station and match it with our Cornish heritage. We had lots to play with in terms of architectural highlights including the stunning double height arched sash windows which are inset in the York stone brick exterior walls.

    The seating area is washed with a wave of tin mine inspired pendant lights overhead, with a wall colour reminiscent of sandy Cornish beaches and cornfields. Sit at the poseur counter with laptop, power and pasty and watch the world go by.

    Stretch the eye upwards under a luxurious double height ceiling with lovingly restored bold architrave and panelling dating back over a hundred years. These original features are set off perfectly by the cool black solid timber floor.

    You'll spot our double ovens nestled in a traditional bakehouse inspired housing in cream tiles. It's all about daily fresh baked goods.

    Our new shop has been designed to be open and welcoming to encourage interaction between staff and customer. Pop in for breakfast, lunch, snacks, coffee, dinner and everything in-between!! We'll be sharing some photography soon!

    Enjoy!

    NEW! Pies on the menu!
    NEW! Pies on the menu!

    We have 2 very special guests who, for a short time only, will be nudging our guest pasties to one side!

    Say hello to our new pies – the delicious 'chicken, leek and bacon' and the super tasty 'chestnut, mushroom and asparagus'.

    These perfect 'fit in your hand' pies are made in Cornwall (where else?) packed full of flavour and encased in a short crust pasty, complete with a hand crimped edging.

    They are designed to be perfect to eat on the go, but we've also found it mighty agreeable to take a while to sit down and pair with our freshly cooked wedges for a well rounded meal!

    Enjoy the pies!

    New Look for Windsor
    New Look for Windsor

    When you walk in from the high street (10 Peascod Street) into our new look store, look up and you'll see the words 'Cornish and Proud' which sums us up perfectly in both our ethos and our multi-award winning Cornish Pasties.

    For any of you familiar with our Windsor shop you'll know we have a beautiful tudor style frontage – just 2 minutes walk from Windsor Castle. We're lucky enough to have 2 wonderful arched windows to give you the ideal 'watching the World go by' seats while you're having coffee and we're thrilled that our exterior seating has direct views over the Castle.

    We've refurbished and re-crafted the interior, taking inspiration from traditional Cornish materials, warm timbers, brick and tile. We have exposed ceiling beams, whose look and feel are inspired by old Cornish mills and large metal light pendants reminiscent of old cornish mines.Wall shades remind us of a Cornish seascape – giving you a hint of holiday escapism.

    We would like to extend a warm Cornish welcome and invite you to join us on your daily journey. Pull up a seat – enjoy an award winning pasty, have a minute to yourself and enjoy our own blend St Just coffee. Let us take care of breakfast, lunch, snacks, hot drinks, cold drinks, time fillers, drinks and dinner.

    We are delighted to announce that we are now open! See you soon!

    Happy St Piran's Day!
    Happy St Piran's Day!

    Happy St Piran's Day! (Cornish: Gool Peran) Today is the national day of Cornwall, England, held on 5 March every year. The day is named after one of the patron saints of Cornwall, Saint Piran, who is also the patron saint of tin miners.

    To celebrate we're going to be enjoying our multi award winning Traditional Cornish Pasty. We took the prestigious title of CORNISH PASTY COMPANY CHAMPION for the second year in a row at the World Pasty Championships last Saturday in St Austell. We were represented by our Traditional Cornish Pasty so we're sure Saint Piran would approve!

    Our Traditional Cornish Pasty is made from fresh diced beef skirt layered over freshly chopped potatoes, swede and onion sprinkled with our own blend of salt and peppers. Delicious!

    Hope you can join us!

    Phil Vickery MBE - Raging Bull
    Phil Vickery MBE - Raging Bull

    Did you know that sporting legend Phil Vickery MBE flies the flag for West Cornwall Pasty Co?
    We're so proud to be associated with Phil that we've created a pasty for him – The Raging Bull which is based on Phil's nickname on the pitch.

    Packed with the finest quality ingredients Beef, Chilli and Tomato, The Raging Bull is one of our fastest selling pasties – and no wonder! What a story. Phil Vickery's rise to fame ticks all of our boxes in terms of sport, inspiration food and passion.

    Phil Vickery MBE is seen as one of the legends of the game of Rugby Union. Capped 73 times for his country, and twice a British & Irish Lion, he also captained England at the 2007 World Cup and was part of the historic team that lifted the Webb Ellis trophy in 2003. Although retired from the game he is still actively involved through coaching and commentating.

    In 2011 Phil won the hugely popular BBC TV cooking show Celebrity MasterChef.

    We enjoyed a fantastic photoshoot with Phil to capture the spirit of The Raging Bull and have a selection of amazing photography that shows off our Raging Bull pasty to perfection! You'll see Phil in this photo – proudly showing off his latest Raging Bull pasties straight out of the oven!

    You can buy a Raging Bull Pasty from any of our shops. You'll see Phil's distinct Raging Bull logo stamped into each and every Raging Bull pasties. The stamp of genuine approval.

    Stay tuned in to hear about our up-coming Raging Bull related competitions and give-aways.
