At Christmas why not try our special 3 bird roast? The 3 bird roast is very popular and consists of a boned goose, stuffed with turkey and pheasant breasts as well as a gluten-free apricot sausagemeat.

 

We sell a huge range of sausages.  From our very own recipe "Thorncote Banger" and when in season mixed game and also Turkey and Goose sausages. Our gluten free sausage is very popular with people on a wheat free diet.

Dear Customer,

Our butcher tries his best to ensure that weights shown on this web site are as near to your order as possible. As you can imagine sometimes it is necessary to go over the weight selected. Your final invoice will be adjusted accordingly (no more than 5% will be added). If you prefer the weights to be slightly under - making your bill less, please state so in the special instructions section when completing your order.
Thank you
