Behind the traditional and unimposing facade is a wealth of quality British produce

We specialise in rare and traditional livestock breeds (eg Dexter beef, Gloucester Old Spot pork, and Hebridean lamb) which are sourced as locally as possible. We have a close and longstanding relationship with the farmers who supply us.

The meat is slaughtered by a dedicated and professional young team in our own slaughterhouse where animal welfare is of paramount importance. It is then hung in carcass form for a minimum of three weeks and then cut to your requirements in our stylish, contemporary five star hygiene rated shop, where personal service is of utmost importance. Our motto is:

"Where excellence is second nature"

In addition we have a fine selection of meat based products made by our own cook in a dedicated kitchen on the premises, and a wide selection of handmade British cheese.

Have a look through some of our shop photos.


The service, as expected, is friendly, efficient and impeccable. At the small delicatessen adjacent to it, one can find and amazing selection of charcuteries, cheeses, sauces, mouth watering home made pies and locally produced breads.

Just had to tell you that the Dexter rib-eye steaks were amazing! We loved them and the chicken and the sausages, farmer Simon was very impressed!

We have just eaten a piece of your superb sirloin beef which we saved to have with son number 2 from London. What a joy! We all said it is ages since we tasted beef like it! I'm going to stop being so lazy and ditch the supermarket meat. You will be seeing more of me in future!


John and Ann went the extra mile for me, literally, when a major spinal operation kept me house bound. They immediately offered to take my order over the phone and deliver the same day. I am sure John's sausage and Ann's cheese helped me to full recovery.

Ann was marvellous in providing a cheese tower for our wedding supper. She proposed a range of special cheeses to suite all tastes and arranged a tasting session at the shop. Her personal care and expert advice ensured our guests thought the cheese tower was wonderful.
