Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this very busy butchers shop, run by the current owners for the last 28 years. It has been a butchers since 1916. The trade has been built up over a very long period and the shop is very well established with a large repeat customer base.

The shop itself has been run by the current owner for the past 28 years and is very well established, with many loyal customers. He is now looking towards a very well-earned retirement.

The shop offers locally-sourced free-range meats, pies and sausages, together with homemade faggots and much more. They also offer fresh, free-range eggs, choice cheeses and pates and local pickles, chutneys and sauces. A delivery service is also offered to the local area.

It is a very well established and well-liked business, however with longer hours, an even more extensive product range and more extensive marketing, we believe the business could be taken to the next level.
