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

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”.
