A Celebration of South West Flavours!

Introducing Our New Pork & Devon Red Cider Pasty: The best of the South West!

Hello, pasty lovers! We at Warrens Bakery are absolutely buzzing with excitement to unveil a delicious new addition to our pasty family for Summer 2024—the Pork & Devon Red Cider Pasty. Crafted with the award-winning cider from Devon’s renowned Sandford Orchards, this unique creation is now available in all of our stores across the West Country, South Wales, and South East.

A Toast to Tradition and Innovation

At Warrens Bakery, we’re rooted in tradition while always keeping an eye on innovation. Being the oldest Cornish pasty producer in the world, our legacy stretches back to 1860. We take immense pride in our heritage, continuously striving to blend our time-honoured methods with fresh, exciting flavours. This summer, we’re thrilled to bring you something truly special by collaborating with another beloved South West brand, Sandford Orchards.

Crafting the Perfect Summer Pasty

Our Shop Manager at Warrens Bakery Cullompton, Shane Duheame, shares our excitement:

“We are delighted to have worked with Sandford Orchards to create this fabulous summer pasty. Sandford Orchards is based in the oldest working cider mill in the country and produces real cider using traditional methods and apples from ancient local orchards in Devon’s cider heartlands. Just like Warrens Bakery, they have their roots in the South West, so they were the obvious choice to add a cider zing to our pork pasty. This collaboration brings together Cornwall and Devon in a pasty and showcases the best of the South West!”

Imagine biting into a hand-crimped flaky pastry case topped with sage and rusk, and filled with juicy pork, apple, potato, and onion, all enhanced with a generous helping of Sandford Orchards’ Devon Red Cider. It’s a delicious blend of rich, savoury pork and the sweet tang of cider, wrapped in the perfect crust—a taste of summer you won’t want to miss!

A Collaboration of South West Pioneers

Barny Butterfield, founder of Sandford Orchards, is equally thrilled about this collaboration:

“Pork and apples have always been a winning combination and we are delighted that our Devon Red Cider is adding an extra apple hit to this tasty new pasty. For centuries, a pasty and pint of cider has been considered the perfect pairing for a Westcountry summer lunch. Now the team at Warrens Bakery has brought that tradition bang up to date with their newest pasty recipe and we love it! We think it’s going to be hugely popular and perhaps even put pasties on the radar for those who have so far been ignorant of this historic local delicacy.”

Sandford Orchards, established in 2002, operates out of the oldest working cider mill in the UK, nestled in the fertile parish of Crediton, mid Devon. Their approach to cider-making mirrors our own commitment to quality—using traditional methods combined with innovative techniques to produce a truly exceptional product.
