Wagyu beef has a high degree of marbling that is unique to the Wagyu breed and gives the meat a buttery flavor.
Our justifiably famous Corned Beef is lean, healthy and most important of all: absolutely delicious!
Our Homemade Turkey rashers are amazing. Low in fat they are an obvious healthy alternative to bacon. Fantastic in a salad or a wrap.
This exclusive steak has been aged in an authentic Himalayan Salt Chamber which creates a steak with special tenderness and depth of flavour.
Green Back Rashers, dry cured and tasty and from pigs reared with great attention to their welfare and happiness.
The marbling is what gives Iberico pork an incredibly luxurious flavour and tenderness.
