Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this traditional family butchers, which specialises in locally reared meats and locally produced vegetables. The butchers has been long established in the area having traded since 1934. Our client has owned the business since 1971, who is now looking to retire.

Having won many competitions over the years for its burger and sausage recipes, including the coveted title of The Supreme Winner of the National Sausage Championship. There is a sausage menu with 53 types of award winning sausages, plus others to choose from.

As the business has traded from the same main road location since 1971 the business has an excellent local reputation and offers local daily deliveries; however, there is further scope for growth to this already profitable business, which could open 7 days rather than 6 days per week.
