It’s so refreshing to stumble across family establishments in these times of faceless corporations. This little gem is all about family. Brothers Philip and Hadyn Field and both their sons work in the shop, while even Mrs Field busies away making all the pies. The shop itself has been recently refurbished and has styled itself as an Edwardian butcher with good wholesome, old-fashioned values. It’s such a friendly place and the service is wonderfully personal.
The choice of meat is vast. Free range and organic, the pork is supplied from rare breeds such as Gloucester Old Spot, Middle White and British Saddleback, while beef is from Aberdeen Angus, Longhorn and Ayrshire grass-fed cattle. They proudly carry the label of being London’s only accredited Rare Breeds Survival Trust retail outlet.
The homemade sausages come in imaginative combinations such as apricot and garlic, merguez or wild boar and apple.
Autumn is the time to sample the fine game at this butcher. From English partridge, teal and woodcock to guinea fowl, grouse, mallard, pheasant, pigeon and even the odd peacock – the list is endless.
There really is so much choice, prices are reasonable and everything is served with a smile. How very British!
