‘The best square sausage I have ever eaten’. Praise indeed from my dad, and believe me when I tell you he’s eaten... a lot of square sausage in his time! I did a detour to Darvel on Wednesday on way to York to visit my dad, as I had heard great things about this butchers. Despite being closed, the lights were on and Jim came to the door and kindly sold me half a block of square sausage to take to my dad. Big mistake, I should have bought the full block! Thanks Jim, there will be many more detours to Darvel I’m sure!read more

Would highly recommend the butcher class first one was chicken. Great value for the price as you kept the chicken you... cut up or you could watch a master at work if you didn't want to take part. An excellent learning opportunity. Included too was receipe sheets and herbs. Very friendly, welcoming and a brilliant assistant offering tea/coffee and juice. Looking forward to the next class.read more
