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. Our skilled kitchen team make sausages and pies, cure bacon, roast meats, and prepare fresh salads each day
