Fill your belly on a gourmet getaway in Leicestershire

Melton Mowbray and the Vale of Belvoir, Leicestershire

Try the famous Melton Mowbray Pork Pie, local Stilton cheese, cream tea, ales, wines and sloe gin as part of a delicious countryside break.

The Melton Mowbray pork pie has been an English favourite for over a century, and you can discover this savoury treat at Dickinson & Morris Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe - who have been baking and selling this famous snack since 1851.

If you fancy some world famous Stilton to accompany your pork pie, then head to The Melton Cheeseboard – the perfect establishment to sample world famous Stilton cheeses from the local area. This protected cheese can be produced in just three counties within the UK and one of these is Leicestershire. Sampling this special blue cheese is a must for all food lovers.

Venture over to 17th century Michelin Bib Gourmand award winning pub The Red Lion Inn for a mouth-watering lunch platter filled with seasonal foods, followed by a brewery tour at the Belvoir Alehouse where you’ll be shown how their beer is made before sampling the goods yourself, or relax in idyllic surroundings with a cream tea at Scalford Hall.
