PRODUCERS OF FINE PASTRYMADE IN THE TRADITIONAL MANNER
Born from a love of great pastry, Dorset Pastry is a family-run business which began in the heart of every home – the kitchen.
WELCOME TO DORSET PASTRY
Dorset Pastry is nestled amid the rolling hills of West Dorset; a traditionally made, high quality, additive-free, and preservative-free pastry for both retail and food service. As multi award-winning producers, we source only the best ingredients and use traditional methods such as hand-folding and resting to create the very highest quality pastry.
Our pastry doesn’t contain any stabilisers, relaxants, or additives – commonly used to ensure consistency in mass production. In fact, we are the first producers of Organic Puff Pastry in the world, and the only producers of Organic Puff Pastry in the UK. Our pastry is sold frozen, and the taste and characteristics can vary slightly, depending on the season or weather conditions when the wheat was harvested, and the butter produced. We like to think that this organic approach to pastry-making gives us an edge – a unique taste inspired by the West Country and all its elements.
Dorset Pastry’s signature Puff Pastry is a firm favourite with chefs and customers across the country. You can find it in the kitchens of the UK’s best restaurants as well as in the freezers of top chefs – a well-kept secret among the best.

FEEDBACK & TESTIMONIALS
As soon as I opened it, I could feel the butter scent! Smelled just like homemade and tasted like it too! Steals the show from any other ingredients!
– Madison, London
Nothing else matches this amazing product, I always have one or two in the freezer.
– Mike (Ocado Review)
I tried this pastry recently; it had a delicious buttery taste and the texture was perfect. My husband remarked how much nicer it was than our usual brand of ready-made pastry and I agree.
– Gong, Newbury
“The best frozen pastry around!”
This is the best frozen puff pastry one can readily purchase and worth the more expensive price. No strange ingredients and good quality butter is used. This is the only puff pastry I would buy and always have one box in my freezer just in case
– SofaQueen (Ocado Review)
“A very delicious pastry!”
The butter notes are superb – rich and decadent with a sweetness that is so well balanced. The quality of ingredients shines through. We would happily use this ourselves in a whole manner of dishes – we will happily hang up our pastry apron!
– Great taste 2020 (Sweet Short Crust)
“You couldn’t better this”
This has everything you want from a butter puff pastry – it is light as a feather, each layer is separate and it just melts in the mouth. The butter is rich, creamy, clean, and full of flavour, with a profile that says dairy without any fattiness. You couldn’t better this as a simple puff pastry.
– Great Taste 2020 (Premium Puff Pastry)
“Delicious buttery flavour”
Attractive looking cooked pastry, golden and with a gentle aroma. Good texture, short and crumbly with a delicious buttery flavour with a good length. Great character and would be a great addition to many dishes. Technically accomplished.
– Great Taste 2020 (Pure Butter Shortcrust Pastry)
“No need to make your own”
Jolly good puff pastry, absolutely no need to make your own when you can buy a product like this. Good enough to eat on its own, light, just the ticket!
