About Us

Service - the way it is meant to be

Back in 1963, when the butchery first started, our service was based on a friendly smile, sharing stories and getting to know you. Serving you the finest cuts we could source.

The world has changed a lot since then. But not our service to you. It's what we believe in, and how we would want to be treated too.
