You are currently viewing Celebrating some of the UK’s finest meat produce with National Butchers Week

Now in its 11th year, National Butchers Week celebrates the skilled work done by our nation’s independent butchers, bringing us the best British meat to our tables.

A great local butcher on your high street is a rare and valuable commodity. As well as sourcing the best quality British meat, butchers have a treasure trove of knowledge on the best cuts, cooking methods and so much more. National Butchers Week celebrates the hard work that they put in every day and aims to bring more UK shoppers to the counter of their local butcher.

Here at Ross and Ross, we’ve been spoiled with great local Cotswolds butchers. We source our meat from Barry the Butcher, a seasoned purveyor of the finest British meat for almost 40 years. Their legions of returning customers keep coming back for their excellent quality, great range of products and their particularly moreish sausages! Whether we’re catering a wedding or hosting a pop-up restaurant, they’re always our first port of call.

What is National Butchers Week?
