M.I. DICKSON Butchers (The Hot Stop)
Home of the Legendary Saveloy Dip, Tasty Pies, & Own Recipe Sausages.
For generations, Dicksons Pork Butchers has been satisfying the demanding tastes of the North East, and it is still owned and managed by the family who founded it back in 1953. The business was founded by Irwin and Helen Dickson who put all their capital into opening their first shop in the ‘Nook’ in South Shields.
Tastes have changed over the years and some products once sold in high quantities such as pig trotters, pigs cheek and tripe have long gone from the displays, whilst other traditional foods such as black and white pudding and pease pudding have enjoyed something of a revival.
One item that remains unique to the Dicksons empire is the beech-smoked saveloy which can be eaten however you choose, but to enjoy the legendary Saveloy Dip it needs to be served hot in one of their fresh baps with pease pudding, sage and onion stuffing and a generous dollop of English mustard.
We’re proud of our north eastern heritage and for over six decades have been passionate about creating our own selection of the finest quality products. Since 1953, each Dicksons’ recipe has carried our unique signature style – attention to detail, a respect for tradition and a taste for the new.
