Arbroath based pie connoisseur Fleming Butchers is celebrating after having been awarded silver in the Regional Pie Class for its Steak Bridie at the 2017 British Pie Awards.

The ninth annual British Pie Awards took place in Melton Mowbray on March 10, and this year nearly 900 pies were entered from a record number of 154 professional bakers and butchers. Undergoing a thorough judging process from over 150 top pie experts, the Steak Bridie was given the silver accolade based on a range of criteria, including appearance, texture and taste.

Fleming Butchers has been making pies since 1925 and this is their second win at the British Pie Awards.

Guthrie Batchelor, owner of Fleming Butchers commented: “We are extremely pleased to have won this award, especially since this is only our second time entering this competition. In 2015 we won a bronze award for our Chicken & Gravy Pies, so this year we have gone one better. Well done to our bakery staff for making such excellent products.”

Matthew O’Callaghan, Chairman of the British Pie Awards, added: “What a year for the Awards – we’ve seen a truly varied and plentiful plethora of pies. The standard of entrants this year was higher than ever before, and Fleming Butchers can be very proud of their award. Well done!”
