The World Championship Scotch Pie Awards

We enjoyed another successful year at The World Championship Scotch Pie Awards with 2022 being the third year in succession where Dales Butchers came away with top honours in the cold savoury category. This year it was our recently introduce Pork & Chorizo pie that excited the judges taste buds. The two previous years successes went to our Pork & Mr Vikkis Chilli Jam and Pork & Black Pudding pies.

Diamond Award - Cold Savoury

Pork & Chorizo

A first awards outing for this recent addition to the Dales Butchers pie range.

Gold Award - Cold Savoury

Pork & Black Pudding

Not just the top spot, Dales Butchers also landed the second place Gold award with our previous year’s winner – Pork & Black Pudding. This pie also came away as Class Winner at the British Pie Awards in 2020.

Gold Award - Steak Pie

Steak Pie

Always a top choice at Dales Butchers, our steak pie was recognised with a Gold Award. Although this award was presented for our individual steak pie, the same recipe is also available in 6″ family pie and 10″ extra-large pie options.

Gold Award - Sausage Roll

Pork Sausage Roll

We were very pleased to receive a Gold Award for our pork sausage roll at this year’s awards too. A big favourite with the many visitors we get to Kirkby Lonsdale, as well with our regular customers, it’s generously filled and seriously meaty!

Silver Award - Macaroni Pie

Macaroni Pie

Although it’s only a silver award, to come away with any award in this category is a great result. The macaroni pie is very much a Scottish speciality, so we’re thrilled to have been ranked in the top 3!


A big year for Dales Traditional Butchers, when we proudly received the award of Britain’s Best Butchers Shop at the Meat Management Industry Awards (you can read more here). We also landed a nice, highly commended award for our steak and kidney pie at the British Pie Awards.


Great recognition for our much loved pies at Dales Traditional Butchers. At the British Pie Awards we landed the class winning Gold Award for our Pork & Black Pudding Pie, as well as securing the best Small Producer Award. Another nice feather in our cap at these awards was our Pork & Black Pudding pie being awarded the most points of any pie out of all the competition’s entries.

Not just at the British Pie Awards, we also enjoyed great success at the World Championship Scotch Pie Awards, securing two class winning Diamond Awards in the Cold Savoury (Pork & Haggis Pie) and Haggis Savoury (Scotch & Haggis Pie) classes, plus a gold in the cold savoury class too.

Also, although not winning any of the major awards, we did make it to the finalist stages for five category-leading Diamond awards at the Q Guild Smithfield Awards.
