“There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply. The person who buys on price alone is this man’s lawful prey”.
John Ruskin 1819-1900
When done well, a butchers produce is some of the finest produce around, made with skill, care and attention to detail by a craftsman. But like most wonderful foods in this world, it can be taken by those less interested in eating quality (more driven by profit) and made into an inferior commodity with little regard for the end product.
I believe we make some of the best sausage and pork products available. A true British sausage is light with a smooth texture, containing pork from locally reared, high welfare livestock, well seasoned and with an amount of bread rusk that gives us the desired texture and flavour.

The Q Guild represents the finest quality independent meat retailers in Britain.
Butchers carrying the Q Brand send out a strong message that they are one of Britain's
best butchers shops.
