Famous Cornish Pasties

“Everytime I drive through Hayle I have to make a raid on Hampsons. Medium beef pasties are gorgeous and if you’re up for a challenge you could attempt a large! Also sample the chicken and ham pies, delicious.”

Quality traditional pasties

We make a selection of very high quality Cornish pasties using the traditional 3 vegetables, potato, onion, swede (turnip), and diced skirt or minced beef.

We skillfully butcher the beef and prepare the local vegetables to our high standard.

The pastry we make is a shortcrust, rolled flat, filled with the vegetables, seasoned, topped with steak, seasoned again, rolled over and crimped to one side, glazed, holed and cooked till golden – `ansome!

Available in small, medium and large hot or cold whatever you prefer.

High Meat Content

Once again like all out products they have a high meat content surpassing the minimum being 12.5% for a “Cornish pasty” (6% for just a pasty!!!). We are independently audited by Cornwall Council to ensure our Cornish Pasties meet the legal requirements – the results consistently show 21% meat content!

Ever since the Cornish miners had their pasties dropped down the mines to them there has always been a variation on fillings ask anyone! Its a good conversation piece and we are no exception we offer – chicken, pork, cheese all with the three veg or how about a savoury cheese & onion? Not forgetting vegetable on its own.
