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.”

Our pork is sourced from Blythburgh Free Range Pork is Suffolk where the animals have a wholesome free range lifestyle, enjoy high welfare standards and a natural diet. This freedom to roam and be active means that the animals grow at a slower rate (compared to a pig raised in a pen). This slower more natural rate of growth means that the meat develops a traditional superior flavour and succulence not available elsewhere. Come and visit the shop and you can buy some of this delicious pork for yourself. (Our Gammon produced on the premises is cured from Blythburgh Free Range Pork joints.)

Below are the latest posts about our supplier, what’s in the shop, recipes and cooking tips.
