Dickinson & Morris has been baking Melton Mowbray Pork Pies since 1851 and are the oldest remaining bakers of the authentic Pork Pie in the town today. The Melton Mowbray Pork Pie now has PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) status. This means it has to be made within a certain geographical location and be baked using only the finest fresh, uncured pork. It must also have a classic rounded, slightly bow-walled appearance.


You will watch a personal demonstration of ‘hand raising’ a pork pie and discover how Melton Mowbray became so famous for pork pies. You will also discover the fascinating link between Stilton Cheese, Melton Mowbray and Pork Pies.


After building up an appetite sampling the wares, make your way to Oakham, a short 20 minute drive away, for your 2 course lunch, prior to your Rutland Water cruise.


You will board the Rutland Belle at Whitwell and depart on a 45 minute cruise around Rutland Water, amidst the sailors, anglers and waterbirds, whilst listening to a commentary highlighting points of interest.


There is a covered, all-weather, saloon area on the lower deck and an upper exposed deck to enjoy. Drinks/tea & coffee are available to buy in the licensed aft saloon.
