Meat, fish and services
As well as selling meat, fish and sundries from our shop in West Street, we also offer wholesale, a butchery service for small holders and butchery classes. There's more information below.
Our meat comes from non-intensive farming systems. We work with small producers and take great care to understand the way the animals are reared. I believe that animals that are not pushed have better, longer lives and taste superior.
Due to scale of the farmers we work with, they usually can’t supply us all year round so we use a range of different producers. We display the week’s animals and producers in the shop and will happily discuss them with you when you come in.
Recent highlights have included Belted Galloway beef from the Surrey Wildlife Trust; South Downs lamb from Miss J Hewit and Miss Dawson; and Middlewhite and Mangalitza pigs from Adam Cocks in Brook.
We sell Fosse Meadow free range poultry, and buy our Christmas geese and turkeys from them. Our game comes from a variety of suppliers, mostly local but changing weekly, so please ask when you’re in.
We try to source as much of our meat as possible from animals reared for conservation grazing. This is a system where livestock is used to protect and conserve habitats for other species, like wildflowers and butterflies. As well as great tasting meat, this helps to look after the beautiful countryside we are surrounded by.
Sausages and other flavoured products are all made from scratch on the premises using quality ingredients. These are changing all time so please keep an eye on our counter.
We sell day boat and some farmed fish that’s seasonal and sustainable. The selection and availability changes all the time, so it really is a case of coming to see what we have and planning your meal from there.
The price of fish is more volatile than meat so to remain competitive we might not buy fish if the price is high. However if there is a particular fish you would like, please call us early in the week and we can order it for you, after confirming you are happy with the price.
We currently sell fresh fish on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. We are looking to offer a small selection of frozen fish all through the week which will be vacuumed packed in individual portions so can be defrosted quickly, please ask about this when you’re in.
If you are interest in buying wholesale from us, please phone or pop in to discuss.
Butchery for small holders
We provide a cutting service for small holders all year round. Call us for more information.
I have taught butchery classes for several years so if you have an event, or something you and some friends might want to learn, please get in touch.
