Learn from the Past

Our story began with the development of New Ollerton, a village that accommodated the Miners who had travelled to Ollerton for work. Evelyn Allwood was known to cycle up to the mines to sell Pork Pies to the workers. In 1928 Evelyn set up shop on New Ollerton highstreet, where we still remain. From here he was able to sell both cooked and raw goods, many of the original recipes remain still in use to this very day. Due to the business becoming so busy, his Father, Samuel Evelyn came in to work alongside him. It is here that we received the name S. Allwood & Son. The business has been handed down through the generations. Edward Allwood, Evelyn's son, ran the shop for decades, extending the rear of the shop to accommodate a greater demand, with his son, Richard, working alongside him for many years before taking over in the 90's.

Prepare for the Future

This brings us to this very day, where you will now find Richard Allwood standing alongside his wife Yvonne Allwood running the shop day in day out, providing the same great service that started back in 1928 with his Grandfather and Great Grandfather. Richard has worked tirelessly to extend the services of Allwoods', providing a greater range of services and products.

Having won several awards for our Pies and Sausages from time-honoured family recipes, Richard and Yvonne are tirelessly iterating and improving their produce, lovingly serving the very same community the family have for generations.
