The Story So Far

We make and bake outstanding pies, pasties (Devon ones!) pork pies and sausage rolls.

Multi award winning pie and pasty makers – Chunk of Devon grew out of the back of a small butcher’s shop in a little Devon village.

Winners at Food Drink Devon Awards with Nigel Barden

In July 2006 Simon & Suzi Bryon-Edmond took it on – with a belief that food should be special, tasty and natural.  From a catering background and winners of a stash of awards… “we were after a new challenge and both of us loved pies. One of our first dates was pie and chips on a Devon quay!”

In 2008, we entered our first regional awards and were delighted to do really well. We had a few ups and downs in the first couple of years, but our passion, bordering on obsession to make, special, tasty, natural products has never wavered! We are now one of the country’s most awarded pie and pasty makers. In 2019 we hit the national stage by winning the title ‘Britain’s Best Cornish Pasty’, for the second time! Our Cornish counterparts weren’t happy that this coveted title went to a Devon pasty maker!  This humble pasty has also been awarded 13 consecutive Great Taste Awards.


Champion Steak Pasty WinnersWe have since gone on to win over 250 awards across our range of both pies and pasties. Champion twice at the British Pie awards and numerous Great Taste awards, acknowledged as the bench mark for speciality food and drink – pretty much the Oscars for the food and drink industry! 

Why are we such serial winners?.  We believe the best way is to source  ingredients as locally as possible and when you’ve got fantastic natural produce why spoil their flavours with additives and other junk? So we don’t. The result? – Pies, pasties, pork pies and sausage rolls that taste absolutely awesome!



The Chunk Pie Factory is in Ottery St. Mary, where our team, or hunks as we call them, of around 50 dedicated folk make and bake with the same passion as we have. When the hunks party we celebrate in style! For our 10th birthday we enjoyed a cruise and casino aboard with Stuart Line Cruises. A very eventful evening!
