We booked this as a present for our dads for Father’s Day. We had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed making the pies. However the thing that let it down was the quite graphic presentation at the start. I agree it is important that we...More

We really enjoyed this 2 hour experience. It was extremely well organised and presented by a very knowledgeable lady. The slide show was very informative (a little long) about where products were sourced from. We learnt how to make the pastry, mould the cases, what...More

I bought a Brockleby's "Summer Isles Salmon Pie" at my local Saturday market. Unfortunately it was inedible -- what kind of salmon, "summer isles" or not -- comes in perfectly shaped, dry, tasteless cubes? The overwhelming taste was broccoli, not the "creamy dill sauce."

Hi sorry to hear that about our pie this is not normally the case with the salmon pie being one of the most popular pies. Please email info@brocklebys.co.uk your complaint and we can help you there..
