Paul’s Pies, Fishergate Hill, Preston
After being well known for his work at Pennington’s bakery, on Chorley Road for the past 12 years, Paul Addison finally took the plunge last month and opened his own shop in Preston. His plan is to keep it simple and offer value for money.
He offers British favourites, from meat and potato, butter pies, and Lancashire hotpot. And they are already proving to be very popular with customers far and wide - rave reviews are coming in thick and fast - and often selling out quickly.
Paul also plans to bring a range of new fillings to the shelves over the festive period.
