This family-run butcher in the village of New Stevenson has been going strong since opening in 1977. It’s fair to say that everyone for miles knows the Morrison name – there are even rumours of a catchphrase (‘It’s got to be Johnny Morrison!’) and the shop is busy year round, with a particular demand for their home-made steak pies at New Year. The Morrisons make a point of sourcing meat from local farms, in particular beef and pork, and have an in-house bakery which produces celebrated apple pies as well as the more usual savoury items. In addition to a well-stocked butcher’s counter, Morrisons also stock a range of sauces from around the world, from Australia to the USA.
