Today, Monday, is National Pancake Day — an entire day meant to celebrate pies in all their glory.
The special day on the calendar dates back to the 1970s when an American nuclear engineer, brewer, and author declared his birthday—January 23—National Pancake Day and took off in countries around the world.
But, given a little closer to home, where else can you pick up a pie in St. Helens to celebrate the occasion?
As part of our Best of 2022 contest, we asked you, our readers, who makes the best pies in town.
We’ve been inundated with nominations and recommendations and have put together a shortlist of seven places to visit to try your pie.
Owned by John Burchall, the fifth generation of his family to own the company, Burchall was a Best for Pies 2022 winner thanks to its delicious pork pie.
