Welcome to Piglet World

5 Star Products for 5 Star People

Piglet’s started out as a little seed of an idea, Jo left the corporate world and set out to fulfil her dream of setting up a nice little bakery serving really great produce and here we are…

Since then, Piglet’s Pantry has grown in giant leaps, moved three times and has the privilege of being pie purveyor to circa 30,000 fans at Brighton & Hove Albion FC where 85% buy our products. We sell more pies than any other Stadium in the UK – wow!
