    Hi People,

    Just a quick one; can anyone recommend a nice butchers that has a really nice cut of roasting beef e.g. Aberdeen Angus? My Grandparents asked me if I could find out a butcher that has really good quality meat for Sundays Roast Dinner? Any ideas?

    TIA,
    Jake.

    No local butchers in their village? Or are they city folk?

    Bob Wherlock butchers on north street always has a queue out the door. I can't vouch for the quality of the meat though - I'm vegetarian :)

    I was going to suggest this. Very popular butchers. You'll have to be quick though, i think the owner is selling up after doing it for decades.

    Gatcombe farm shop is lovely. Depends which side of town you are though.

    Ah withywood, Gatcombe is in Long Ashton village if you can get there.

    I always use TPA Murray on Gloucester Road. Really really nice meat, quite expensive though. Might be too far away though.

    My uncle has a great one around 17 miles away ^^
    I can only go on the same Mattos. Whenever I walk near to that shop its que'd around the corner (or at least to the door), so they must be doing something right.

    Thanks guys. We got a recommendation for a butchers near the end of White Ladies Road. Organic Butchers. Some really nice cuts in there, really friendly to.. but it was expensive.. you get what you pay for.
