Else Family Butchers, Stalbridge

This much loved family butchers in Stalbridge was a finalist in this category in 2014. Renowned for sourcing quality local meat and game, our readers also loved their wide range of homemade sausages and burgers as well as pies, quiches, and pasties in their extensive deli. Readers told us that Julian and his staff always gave them a warm welcome and they were impressed with how the business supports the local village, assisting at many events. But it was the consistently high standard of their meat that had customers returning again and again. “From the fore rib of beef down to the homemade burgers and sausages everything is packed full of flavour,” said one reader.

Webster Family Butchers, Bournemouth

“Amazing guy, amazing shop,” is how one reader summed up this butchers in Winton. Opened last June by Aussie, Kane Webster and his wife Carly readers said Kane’s knowledge of butchery is “phenomenal!” On their free range butchers block is 28 day aged grass fed beef; Tamworth, Old Spot and Saddleback free range pork from Dorchester; Dorset and Somerset lamb and an extraordinary array of homemade sausages including combos like lamb, spinach and feta. Readers said this couple truly go the extra mile to give customers a fabulous meat buying experience. As one reader declared: “It’s nice to see a traditional butchers that is at the cutting edge of the latest in butchery and presentation….absolutely the best thing to hit Bournemouth for meat”

And the winner is…

Peter Treble Butchers, Westbourne

Our readers loved the great customer service they got at this long established Westbourne butchers which they said made them feel like family. Butchers - Rob, Alan and Jacob - happily recommend cuts, different meats, most of which is locally sourced, and recipe ideas. “They make my barbecues and roast dinners second to none!” said one. Our readers described this business as a much loved and integral part of the local community. Whether you doing a large order or simply want some of their legendary homemade sausages you are well served, as one reader put it: “They are so much more than just a butchers, the team at Peter Treble’s is the benchmark of how to run a successful high street retailer.”
