American playwright David Mamet captured the feeling of many pie lovers when he wrote 'stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie.'

That passion for pies is shared by a Norfolk cafe which has just been named a winner in the British Pie Awards.

A chicken, sausage meat pudding produced by Great Walsingham Barns Café, near Fakenham, has been crowned champion in the regional pie class at a ceremony in Melton Mowbray,

The winning pie was selected based on a range of criteria, including appearance, texture and taste.

Matthew O'Callaghan, chairman of the British Pie Awards, said: 'Great Walsingham Barns Café's pie was a well deserved winner.'
