Tilehurst Village Butchers gain membership to the Q Guild of Butchers
PUBLISHED: 14:49 16 April 2014
Congratulations to Tilehurst Village Butchers who now have membership of the Q Guild of Butchers, a seal of excellence for just 120 establishments in the UK.
This is a family business serving its local community for 24 years, also stocking a wide range of fruit and vegetables and offering a free delivery service.
Chris Watts, director of Tilehurst Village Butchers, celebrated with the team, including wife Jane who deserves special praise for her popular home-made pies. He explains: “She makes steak and kidney, chicken and mushroom, steak and ale, pasties – all the favourites, with specials every other week.”
“We also have a wide range of home-made sausages, the classic plus some which are a bit different, like wild boar and apple or pork and Marmite – either you love it or you hate it. We also stock exotic stuff like zebra, bison, wild boar and alpaca – sometimes people like something a bit unusual.”
All their beef and lamb comes from local farm-assured suppliers, with traditionally farmed and grass-fed cattle. Pork is free range and outdoor reared where possible, supplied by local farms. Chickens come from Banham Poultry, recognised for highest standards of safety and quality.
