Rowe's have won class champion for the pasty class at this year's British Pie Awards with their penang chicken pasty, with their penang veg pasty winning the highly commended award.

This year's event marked the tenth anniversary of the awards and saw nearly 1000 entries to the competition.

Matthew O’Callaghan, Chairman of the British Pie Awards, said: "We’re thrilled to be celebrating the tenth annual Awards and can safely say it was our best yet!

"We hold the Awards to encourage innovation in pies and to celebrate the skill and diversity of British pie makers, and we’ve been blown away by the quality of entries this year.

"I’d like to give my sincere thanks to all involved, including our judges, sponsors, volunteers and of course, all our wonderful pie makers."

Winners were chosen by a panel of the UK's leading pie aficionados after being judged on appearance, texture and taste.

Rowes is a Falmouth-based bakery that first opened on the high street in 1949, and to this day still has their headquarters in town, although they have moved to a new location at Bickland Industrial Park.
