Our Story

One Family | One Passion

We are the Gardner Family and we’ve been making award winning pies and sausage in Lancashire for the past two decades. We are now well on our way to conquer the UK one pie at a time.

My wife Amy and I are currently guiding the business to new heights with our sons Hunter & Marley waiting in the wings.


2001- Where it all began

The Pork Shop Story begins in Poulton-Le-Fylde when Mr Lee Gardner bought a property in the main square, no-one could have ever predicted how successful the future would be…..

2007- The birth of Uncle Dave's Sausage

The Pork Shop introduced their very own signature sausage, The Uncle Dave.  This magnificent sausage is made with a mixture of herbs and spices that is only known within the Gardner family.

2015- Like father like son

During this year Lee saw his son, Jack, come on board as an official partner. Jack brought with him fresh new ideas that would not only keep the fantastic reputation The Pork Shop now had but would help bring the shop up-to-date with modern times.

2016- A Fresh New Look

The start of the more modern look came with a new shop front, whilst still keeping the traditional look. This was the start of The Pork Shop rebrand that would see the shop soar from strength to strength.

2017- Makeover Complete

After a lot of hard work the rebrand was finally complete and saw the customers getting the full impact of the new branding throughout the store.

2018- The Start of the Award Winning

In 2018 The Pork Shop entered their first British Pie Awards in Melton Mowbray. It was a success seeing them come away with two awards, a Bronze and Silver. 

2018- The Next Generation

The most exciting news for the Gardner family this year was the birth of Jack and Amy's first son, Hunter James Gardner. Welcome to the third generation of Gardner.

2019- Goodbye to the Head of the Family

This year brought the news that Lee was retiring and handing over full reins to Jack. Lee knew that Jack would continue the great reputation of the business and also build it even further.

2019- More Success

In their second ever awards, not only did The Pork Shop collect a Bronze award for their pork pie, a Silver award for their Steak and Garstang Cheese pie but they brought home the Best Steak Pie in Britain award.

2020- The Creation of The Pork Shop Express

The one stop hatch for all your needs, located at the rear of the Poulton-Le-Fylde shop. The Express supplies all your Pork Shop favourites for a quick break before you carry on with your day.

2021- The Lytham Pork Shop is Born

The new shop opened in Lytham, bringing The Pork Shop reputation with it. Opening its doors  in February, the shop has continued to grow from strength to strength.

2021- Collaborating with other businesses

Also in  February, The Pork Shop joined up with a local Spar to combine our two shops under one roof. This had never been done before but both businesses came together and it has become a roaring success.

2021 The Story Continues

The National website was born, this is the next step for The Pork Shop in its amazing story and we would like to thank everyone who has placed an order with us. Thank you for helping us to continue to grow.
