This is one of great success stories of the premium sausage sector. Thanks to clever marketing and packaging (they have won awards for it), the turnover of Manor Born has gone from £50,000 to £2 million in three years.
They make a range of sausages under the debbie & andrew's brand. Varieties include the new Mustard sausages, Harrogate sausages made with 97% pork and Worcestershire sauce, Sicilian made with sun dried tomato and the original Great Yorkshire sausages.
They all cost around £2 for a 400g pack and are available from food fairs and supermarkets (Tesco, Sainsbury, Morrisons and Asda). They all taste ok as supermarket sausages but are not exceptional (apart from the branding!)
Tried the new Colman''s Mustard sausages from Manor Born with some mash and gravy last night and wow what a fantastic flavour - succulent with a delicious mustard flavour that is not overpowering but really adds to this scrummy sausage. Going to try it in a sausage casserole next week! Definitely recommend you try it...
I''m on a wheat free diet at the moment and found the Debbie and Andrews Harrogate sausages (I think the fact they called them Nana''s Favourite really won me over) and they''re lovely. 97% meat and had a great flavour and succulence.
I tried the Thai sausages with a corriander and coconut milk mash -absolutely fantastic. I disagree with the view that they are only as good as supermarket sausages - much better.
Bought a couple of packs at the Hampton Court flower show last year and then ordered direct. Best sausages we have had for a very long time especially the Provencal and Sicilian, highly recommended.
Bought some from the ideal home exhibition again this year, absolutely superb sausages, my favourites were the sicilian until I discovered the Colemans mustard pork sausages ... nothing compares ... delicious !
Don''t believe this review when it says they are only as good as supermarket sausages, try the Sicilian sausages - best I have ever tasted, fantastic.
Sausagelinks - we have tried them all, we agree they are good but no match for a good local butcher or farm shop and wont pretend otherwise. It stands to reason that any craft product which is available in hundreds of shops at once and across the country is not going to be as good as hand made produce (as mainly featured in the site)..
Bought some mustard flavour sausages from the ideal home exhibition. Absolutely delicious in between two bits of soda bread, amazed at how little fat came out. Can''t wait to try different flavours!
Genuine pork taste with enough fat to moisten - just. Very good value for money - especially when similar standard products are more expensive. Can''t wait to try the whole range. We had ''Nana''s Favourite'' with braised red cabbage and grain mustard mash - lovely!

These are a local firm to me and they are the best sausages i have ever had will never eat another brand again. My husband was always fusy about sausages untill we found these breakfast sausages and my son loves the Heinz pork and baked bean sausages.
Superb sausages - brought from the three counties show ground - 3 for £5 - will recommend, Sicilian was lovely but my favourite was
Brought two packs from Hampton court flower show last week, tried Tasty Thai and English breakfast. These are the best I''ve tasted and will never eat another brand and now going to order direct. Thanks a lot for the bangers!
Wow! The Thai sausages are s*x on a stick!

My mother came to stay with us last weekend. I persuaded her to try your English breakfast sausages as she told us she never eats sausages anymore. My mother was so impressed with yours that she did no more but promptly went out after breakfast and purchased some packets to take home with her.

These are not your average sausages!! I love them all and dont ever buy any other kind. Maximum flavour, little fat and, good value for money.
absolute nonsense to put these in the same category as supermarket, soapey ruskey rubbish. best sausages by miles.
Sausagelinks - I see a PR campiagn here! They sell through Asda and Sainsbury and are therefore judged against other Supermarket sausages. They also have a listing under Producers. They are ok but not exceptional.

I,am on a gluten free diet and found the Harrogate sausages in Morrisons, they are excellent.
Love the gluten free sausages. My daughter has coeliac so I bought them for her but the whole family prefer them. Very disappointed that our local Morrissons have now replaced them with their own brand which score 0.

Just eaten my first sample of the Harrogate variety. I have to agree with Sausagelinks that they are indeed good, but not exceptional. I found them composed of too finely ground/minced meat, and they didn''t colour and release the syrupy gooey goodness like some other premium sausages.
