Best Butchers in London – Award Winners

Shane Holland Executive Chairman of Slow Food UK visited Morley Butchers in Crouch End to present the 2015 London Best Butchers award. The Slow Food London Awards are a real seal of approval because the entrants and the final winners are all selected by London food shoppers.

Now in their third year these awards were created by Slow Food London to support and highlight the growing number of quality food retailers and producers within London which are the polar opposite of supermarkets .

In their awards statement Slow Food London said “The London Best Butchers award to Morley Butchers recognises excellence in their butchery, time-honed skills, as well as their impressive range of game and quality meat.”

“We are so pleased to have won this award for the second year,running, particularly as it is based on votes from our customers. A huge thank you to them for their support and enthusiasm for our products and what we do in the shop.”

To bring you the best Lamb at all times of year we use a specialist Lamb supplier in London’s Smithfield Market. Lamb quality from different farms and producers varies throughout the year depending on regional conditions that effect the grass on which the animals feed. The Lamb on our counter will always be the best available.

Local Gammon

Free Range Chicken

We cure our own Gammon here in Crouch End using the best ingredients sourced from Blythburgh Free Range Pork in Suffolk. Their animals enjoy a very natural lifestyle and diet and as a result they produce a better taste . We also offer a smoked version. The joints are cold smoked allowing the maple wood smoke to impart extra depth and richness.

Free Range Pork

We find our customers the very best suppliers. The pork in our shop comes from highly regarded Blythburgh Free Range Pork. Traditional lifestyle produces great taste and texture.

We produce our own authentic and delicious Biltong from a traditional South African recipe and technique using only the best Scottish Beef. We make our Biltong in a five day process of marinade, seasoning and air drying before packing – all done on our premises.
