While much of the ‘old’ High Street has been swept away by the modern world, we were looking for a thriving butcher successfully plying their craft outside the shadow of the supermarket

And the winner is…

Surrey Hills Butchers, Oxshott

Judge Simon Barnes says:

“Judging the best butcher from the three finalists was really difficult. All three were excellent in their presentation, range of product, customer focus and enthusiasm for what they were doing. In the end, my choice of Simon Taylor as the winner was not only because of his enthusiasm for serving local people but for butchery overall.”

Highly commended:

Black Barn Butchers, Milford

George Arthur Butchers, Lightwater
