Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The numerous awards on display as you walk in tell you that this is more than just an average butcher.

Local sourcing coupled with a neighbourly welcome in the shop has seen Preston's gather regulars from miles around. And understandably so.
