Just returned from a visit to York where I purchased one of your mince and onion pies…after just one bite, I’m seriously considering moving to the area, it was superb……and served by a delightful lady. I wish you had a mail order service..

Dear Team, just a quick email to say Thank you and your staff at York for the gorgeous Pork and Apple Lattice pie and Pork and Apple pie I have just bought ! The flavour and freshness was superb. It’s only a small shop (due to York city council business tax no doubt) but I’m sure you will soon be expanding ! Fantastic.. well done ALL.

Thank you so much! Delicious pies bringing joy in N castle, now in Geneva and one in freezer for our friends in Neuchatel!

Hello you lovely Guy’s up there in Ripon, hope you don’t mind but I’ve nominated you for the “Best Traditional Pork Pies in the UK” in the British Farm/Food awards 2016 I don’t know about you opening your new shop in Wetherby but perhaps you should open up here and show these French people a thing or two about pork products, although you may have a fight on your hands with the French Black Puddings!

I would just like to say thankyou to the staff in the Wetherby shop. We visit ever school holiday with my son who has some speech problems but the staff in your shop are so pleasant and polite with him. The food we bought yesterday was outstanding. We are so looking forward to our next visit. Thankyou.

I would like to say thank you to the staff at the Wetherby branch of Appletons for their outstanding customer service. In particular the 2 ladies who work there (apologies that I do not know their names) are superb. They are always so welcoming and courteous, making a trip to the shop a real pleasure. I always try and pop in weekly with my youngest son to purchase some of your wonderful roast ham and we really enjoy shopping there. The shop and staff are a wonderful asset to Wetherby.

After much wondering I have finally managed to find your fabulous shop in Ripon. As a little girl I can remember coming into Ripon from Kirkby Malzeard with my mum,who amongst other things always bought your wonderful poloni…the like of which I have never managed to find. ..I am now in my 60s! !!I wondered if it might be possible that you do mail orders? I would be delighted to buy several items on a regular basis if so… Here’s hoping..

Just to let you know how much we enjoyed the large steak pie we bought in Wetherby today. It travelled the hour and a half back to Derbyshire very well!

I am just writing to say that I called into your York shop today to buy a ham. The service from Terry was fantastic, she really knows her stuff and I was well impressed with the shop.

In Ripon, you can sample the delights of traditional Yorkshire fare, such as our famous curd tarts or award-winning pork pies from Appletons Butchers of Ripon.

There’s nothing like a good traditional British pork pie, and the inhabitants of Ripon in North Yorkshire know this because they’ve got Appleton’s the Pork Butchers.

You’ve got to love a pork pie shop. Especially when the pork pies are the size of a plate and topped with a crisp, latticework crust. Appletons butchers fits the bill.
