This is a wonderful old-fashioned family butcher where service is friendly and the meat is top quality. Proprietor Alan Kennedy is at Forfar Market every Wednesday to buy his beef and lamb, and the farm sources are listed in the shop window. As well as the hand-cut meat, the incredible selection of sausages are all made in house, and there’s also a wide range of burgers, pies, Forfar bridies and quiches as well as oatcakes and chutneys. If you’re looking for inspiration, the staff will happily offer cooking advice and recommendations.
