“Lovely selection of meats”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

After eating at a few restaurants in London, which purchase meat from the Ginger Pig (Hawksmoor etc) and having such fantastic meals, we decided to buy some ourselves for home use. The butchers is just off Marylebone High Street, towards the Baker Street end. It’s one of the biggest butchers I’ve been into and there is a fantastic array of cooked and uncooked produce. For the uncooked meat there are all sorts of unusual and wonderful things, right from normal steaks to offal and the best selection of sausages I’ve ever seen. In the cooked section, there are pies, sausage rolls, pastries etc. At £5.50 the pies are very good and definitely substantial enough for 2 people. They do take credit cards (I think over £10) as well as cash. It’s not the cheapest place to purchase meat but its definitely very good meat and worth a visit.

“Our local butcher ! The best meat !”
Reviewed June 1, 2011

I would say it is an attraction, it is an artist who sells the best meat, prepares the best sausage. Compared to a butcher in Paris it is not overpriced at all and would be rather cheap.

“The sausage rolls will change your life”
Reviewed May 9, 2011

A well known and highly respected butcher with a couple of shops in London, including one at borough market.
What makes it standout from the crowd though are the sausage rolls. Bigger than you could ever imagine, perfect pastry and the best filling known to man. To compare them to other sausage rolls is to do them an injustice, they must be sought ought if you are in a 2 mile radius of the place!
