This shop has traded in meat for more than 150-years and some of the original 1860 decorative Victorian Royal Doulton tiles can still be found on the walls. They even supply some of Hampton Court Palace’s meat.

Priory Farm Shop, South Nutfield

Inside the farm shop at Priory Farm, which was named the county’s best at the 2016 Surrey Life Food & Drink Awards, you’ll find a butcher’s counter worthy of such an establishment.

Robert and Edwards, Reigate and Oxted

Something of an absolute institution in the towns they serve, Robert and Edwards have a habit of producing innovative collaborations with other local foodies, which tells you all you need to know about their field to plate credentials.

Surrey Hills Butchers, Oxshott

Two-time butcher of the year at the Surrey Life Food & Drink Awards, 30-something butcher Simon Taylor has worked in traditional butcher shops since he was 13. You might have also spotted him at local events championing what had become a bit of “a dying art form”.
