Cranstons - Butcher - Maker

Quality you can trust since 1914.

Butcher + maker

Just like Stanley Cranston back in 1914, our skilled butchers buy only the best cattle, sheep and pigs from farmers we know and trust, expertly hanging and cutting the meat. We have full control from field to counter. Working in our Cumbrian Food Hall kitchens our experienced team make sausages and pies, cure bacon, roast meats, and prepare fresh salads each day

Dry Aged Beef

We work with the best local herdsmen and expertly mature our beef ‘in-house’. The result, mouth-wateringly tender steaks and joints.

Spring Lamb is here!

Tender new season lamb is now available. Enjoy top quality lamb at it’s very best.

Quality you can
trust – since 1914

A family run butchers for more than 100 years, we are
passionate about offering the highest quality local
meat and produce for our discerning customers.
