Every Englishman knows that the finest pork pies come from the pretty Leicestershire town of Melton Mowbray. We’ve based ours on the age-old Melton recipe. It’s handcrafted with uncured cuts of traditionally seasoned, peppery British pork, encased in a thick, hot-water crust pastry. The pastry is made to a secret recipe, passed down through the family from a Yorkshire butcher. Pork pies are at their best eaten cold or at room temperature, but don’t be afraid to warm through.
At Parker's we believe it's important to choose high-welfare meat and support the farmers that go the extra mile. We source our high welfare pork direct from the United Kingdom. The free range farms that we work with ensure that the animals spend all their lives outdoors. The old fashioned way.
Our authentic pork pies are completely cooked and should be traditionally served at room temperature or chilled.Our pork pies can stay in the refrigerator for up to 7-9 days and can last up to 3 months if frozen. For best results, defrost in the fridge and enjoy at room temperature. If you would like to eat your pork pie warm, follow the following reheating instructions. These are guidelines, every oven is different so please check periodically.
1lb. Pork Pies
Reheating Frozen Pies
Preheat oven to 400ºF, and bake uncovered for 40 minutes or until the pie is warm throughout.
Reheating Refrigerated Pies
Preheat oven to 400ºF, and bake uncovered for 25 minutes or until the pie is warm throughout.
Microwaving Refrigerated Pies
Microwave 1lb. pies on HIGH for 2 minutes.
The best way to heat an English Pork Pie is to reheat it in an oven. A microwaved pie has a tendency to become chewy and the pastry loses its flakiness and crispiness. Please be aware that the gelatin in our pies may liquify once it's heated. All ovens are not created equal, so you may need to adjust the recommended heating times accordingly.
English pork pies are traditionally served cold, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy them hot. Here are our serving recommendations:
Serve a cold pie with salad, English mustard, pickles, or HP brown sauce to make a perfect picnic or party snack.
Serve a hot pie with mushy peas, chips (fries) or baked beans with condiments like HP brown sauce, mustard or chutney.

NEW FREE SHIPPING SERVICE
(NOW DISABLED UNTIL AFTER THE HOIDAYS)
PLEASE NOTE: Due to an unexpected change in UPS's Ground and Home Delivery services orders going to the West Coast (including Nevada) can only dispatch on Mondays to ensure safe arrival of your orders. We apologise for any inconvenience.
We’ve always wanted to make the very best of our Great British Institution available to as many people in the US as possible. That’s why we’re so happy that we can now offer free shipping to nearly anywhere in the mainland US. We’ll pick up the tab on the courier cost for you when you spend over $120.
Delivery may take a little longer than our other options (depending on when you order it can take up to 14 days to dispatch as we have limited shipping windows - packages can't travel over the weekend!), but thanks to our new PolarPack Cool Boxes the products we take such great pride in will still arrive fresh as a daisy. Products are quickly frozen before shipping to keep them fresh and they may still be frozen by the time they get to you, so make sure you have space available!
All the packaging is reusable and will be perfect for your next family picnic. There's also no packaging charge on non-perishable items, so feel free to fill up a box with those crisps you crave!
We ask that you do not select a P.O Box as your delivery address - UPS are under no obligation to deliver perishable items to a P.O Box, and may refuse to do so.
WE SHIP YOUR FRESH PRODUCTS IN COOLER BOXES
Our dedicated team of professional shippers will lovingly pick and pack your order. We use high density, food grade Styrofoam cooler boxes and fill them with icepacks to keep your order at a safe refrigerated temperature during transportation.
Got some empty space in your box? The dry ice pellets we use evaporate into gas as they thaw, so it's entirely normal for there to be a gap where refrigerants once were.
All our shipping packaging is recyclable and reusable, so hang onto it for a family picnic or to store your food shopping on a hot day!
OUR SHIPPING SCHEDULE
The UPS Home Delivery service can take 2-4 days to arrive depending on how far away you are from our shipping hub. Our standard shipping days are Monday to Wednesday (like UPS) and as before we cannot ship products to be in transit over Sundays, so your order may wait until the following Monday to ship depending on the distance it has to travel. All delivery dates given are estimates, so if you need a parcel for a specific date please get in touch so we can discuss your options.
Please note that during busy periods, peak times and holidays orders may take longer than usual to ship. We will always ship your order as soon as we can, but if you have any questions about when it is likely to dispatch please do get in touch.

We can deliver on a specific date if you need us to, just select one of the UPS Express options and drop a note onto the order form or contact us by phone or email. If we can't accommodate the request due to our shipping windows, we'll be in touch!

Helpful Hints & Tips
Select ‘Overnight Shipping’ in the hot summer months to ensure peace of mind that in 100F+ weather your order will arrive in perfect condition.
Double check the delivery address.
UPS do not require that someone is there to receive the delivery, and will leave the package at the property without a signature. As a result please do keep an eye on your UPS tracking number, so you know once your goodies have arrived.
Refrigerate or freeze your products upon arrival, to ensure that they remain as fresh as possible.
Note delivery instructions in the comments box on your order.
