The traditional butcher is making a comeback

We feel it’s really important to ‘back your local butcher’ in a bid to promote all that is best about produce from the area and we are supporting our town’s butcher shop.

The Butcher Shop in Bampton, which is owned by nearby farmer John Wescott, represents all that is great about locally reared and sourced meat.

There are hundreds of other butchers doing well all over the country like this one as they take seasonality and animal welfare seriously, and we’re supporting this vital resource in our home town.

Our ethos has always been to provide good food, sourced locally wherever possible, while backing other businesses in the community too.

The Butcher Shop in Bampton provides the joints for our popular Sunday roasts and a whole host of other products. You can’t get any fresher or tastier produce than stuff reared nearby.

What’s really important about local butchers is they can provide provenance for all the items they stock and they really are experts. The selection changes each week as they react to supplies that come in.

The beef, lamb and pork comes from selected local farms, including the Wescott’s own farm, and travels less than 30 miles to the local abattoir near Taunton ensuring the smallest possible carbon footprint.

Bampton Butchers has been in Brook Street for several decades and the Wescott family took over the existing business in 2010.
