The third of four Shaws butchers shops is in a somewhat tricky location - directly opposite Waitrose, and a short walk from rival George Bower in Stockbridge. That's not to detract from many plus points - a smart, spotless store, the neatest counter of meat in town, and some good sourcing. Beef, lamb and pork hail from the Borders, and there are helpful larder additions: eggs (though are barn eggs necessary alongside free range?), S Luca ice cream, oatcakes, rapeseed oil and J. Mellis honey. They make their own sausages, haggis and pies, smoke their own bacon on-site and marinate steaks for easy meals. Game and more specialist meat is available by prior request.
