Since 1891

Our History

Thompson’s Pies is a Newcastle owned family business. The first Thompson’s bakery was established in Wallsend in 1891 by Henry and Emma Thompson. Inheriting their parent’s passion for the business, Henry and Emma’s children continued to work in and open new branches of the bakery business through six generations.

This passion for baking was passed down to Henry and Emma’s grand-children and great grand-children including Garry Thompson who started Thompson’s Pies in 1961. Garry still owns the Gateshead bakery but has proudly handed over the day-to-day operations to his children and grandchildren to continue the Thompson’s Pies baking legacy.
