30 Years On
After 30 years, Mrs Turner’s Steak and Kidney Pie became famous throughout the town, and their three children, Terence, Elizabeth, and Pip, began to learn the catering and hospitality trade.
Eva’s youngest son Pip and his wife Margaret take the great pies they know and begin to make them again from home to sell to local butchers and delicatessens. Soon demand is high for their top-quality pies.
The First Pie Shop
Turner’s first pie shop opens at 89 Hawthorn Rd, Bognor Regis, with the motto “Only the finest ingredients”. Here, our guarded recipes have been developed and refined for over 25 years.
Third Generation Pie Boys
Pip’s youngest son Philip takes the reins of the family business and is soon joined by his two elder brothers, Joseph and Peter, who had been brought up on and were also passionate about the pies of their parent’s business.
