Revealed: The winner of Plymouth’s best pasty 2017
You voted and we listened – this is who makes Plymouth’s best pasty
We asked readers to vote for Plymouth’s best pasty, and more than 10,000 votes later, this year’s winner can now be revealed.
The people of Plymouth voted in their droves for our 12 nominees – but there could be only one winner.
The Original Pasty House took this year’s pasty crown, while Friary Mill, who were last year’s winners, came in second place and St Stephens Bakery came in third.
Nigel Eadie, 55, who owns The Original Pasty House, told The Herald that he and the team were over the moon to have won.
Nigel said: “When we found out the store erupted with cheers. We were all really delighted.
“We entered last year and came a very close second, so this year we were super determined to make an even bigger effort.
“I would like to thank the people of Plymouth for voting in their droves along with my brilliant staff for all their hard work.”
Nigel and his partner Janet first opened Pasty House in Tavistock in 2003 – before opening their Plymouth branch in 2011.
More than 10,000 votes were cast in this year’s competition and Nigel said that he was extremely proud of his team.
He said: “We seem to have really established ourselves within the community over the past few years and I am so proud of everything we have achieved.
Nigel told The Herald that the team were more determined than ever to take the title next year.
He said: “Now that we have won we are absolutely even more determined to retain our crown!”
Speaking about what he thought made their pasty’s the best, he said: “I think it is the combination of the best ingredients and high quality produce. Plus all of our pasty’s are made by hand.
“As well as that though we have got an amazing team who provide great service.”
