  • Visitor Information

City workers are lucky to have the excellent Porterford Butchers on their doorstep. So between work and home they can indulge in some carefully chosen bacon, chicken and lamb from Wales, good quality Scottish beef from grass-reared animals, Bronze turkeys, free-range Aylesbury eggs and eggs from Martin Pitt. Special treats include some sage and onion sausage meat stuffed chicken breasts. They also have a delicious range of over 20 sausages, most of which are made in-house. If you're passing when they're scrubbing down on a Friday night you might be lucky enough to pick up some meaty treats at bargain prices. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas put your order in for lamb, mutton, pork and free-range Turkeys (often just between Michelmas and Christmas).
