Review: The Pudsey Pasty from Bentley’s Butchers

I always knew Bentley’s Butchers of Pudsey had an enviable reputation for its pork pies, but I’d never heard of a ‘Pudsey Pasty’ before, so I thought I’d give it a try, writes John Baron.

As someone who grew up in Pudsey, I couldn’t resist the Pudsey Pasty during a recent lunchtime visit.

A quick Google shows they’ve had their fair share of the headlines over European Union red tape in the past – but, biting into it, I didn’t know what to expect.

A couple of bites into my Pudsey Pasty

Turns out it includes minced beef, carrots, onions, pea and potato – and it’s blooming gorgeous! I’m not usually one for pasties but this one is packed full of ingredients and is cased in a gorgeous golden pastry.

It’s full of flavour from the ingredients but it’s also got a peppery, slightly spicy taste. It was certainly a pleasant surprise, and very filling as a lunch. It helped that it was still warm when I got it, too.

They’ve been baking it at Bentley’s for more than 28 years now and I can now see why it’s proven so enduring. Long live the Pudsey Pasty!
