about us

Hi, Im Simon Dunkley and with my great friend Steve Foster, we are Mark & Bobs Pie Dads and we spend most of our time trying to keep them on the straight and narrow. Together we all spend every waking hour trying to deliver my grandfathers dream of creating the best pie company in the world!

Pies are one of the most traditional of British Fayres and we are proud to say that here at Dunkleys (the mother ship of Love Pies) we are one of the oldest, family owned, pie makers in Britain today.

The company was born, shortly after Sidney Dunkley returned to Northampton after the Great War. When Sids Son joined the family business he expanded the successful butchery business in to high quality, handmade pork pies and meat pies. Dunkleys have never looked back since, and I am proud to be a third generation pie maker at the helm of the business. I merged my pie dynasty with another famous local pie making family, the Fosters, to create the current company which has the passion of two great pie making families.

Mark & Bob then joined us a couple of years ago and set about conquering the world of pies. In their obsession with pies, they created the Love Pies! brand because they really are potty about pies.

We have built our success around the following simple philosophies:

  • We only use the finest ingredients, from fresh British Farm Assured Beef, to fresh vegetables roasted in our own pie ovens
  • We use hands, not machines, so that no two pies are ever quite the same


But most importantly:

  • We only create pies that we love.
