Premium Scotch Beef

Our Beef is a premium quality range of Scotch beef that has enjoyed a traditional lifestyle and wholesome diet. These cattle are bred, raised and selected to produce the finest flavour.

Our supplier is MacDuff Beef a family business for four generations based in Scotland.

Free Range Chicken

We are supplied direct from Sutton Hoo, in Suffolk. It is a family farm producing real free-range chickens in the traditional way – producing the best birds for customers but using the highest welfare standards. These slow growing birds enjoy a wholesome additive free diet resulting in very tasty eating.

best english lamb

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.

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 cold smoked version for 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. By growing at a much slower, more natural rate  Blythburgh Free Range Pork acquires a traditional flavour and succulence that has been largely forgotten in today’s mass produced pork.

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. We also make Droewors and Boerwors again using the best ingredients to produce a premium product.

Butchers Sausages

We stock a range of high quality butchers sausages. These tasty sausages have an eighty five percent meat content and a flavour that keeps our customers coming back for more. So much so that we have been using the same recipe and supplier for thirty years! We offer: Plain Pork sausage, Plain Pork chipolata, Cumberland, Wild Boar and Apple You might also want to try our South African specialities Boerewors
