No Horse Meat In King's Lynn's Butchers - Shop Local!

Yes, the supermarkets and major meat producers are in the headlines yet again, it seems that there's undesirable "stuff" in so many of their products.  There's a very easy way to guarantee that your meat is sourced properly and doesn't contain anything that it shouldn't - buy from your local butcher!

Your local butcher is a trained professional who takes pride in their work, and will happily talk about how best to prepare your meat, store it, or just share the time of day.  And in King's Lynn we're lucky to have some absolutely cracking establishments to this week don't hand your cash to mister Tesco, mister Morrison or mister your excellent local...PROPER....butcher!

Bowers can be found on Lynn Road, Gaywood, next to the clock tower.  Check out their fabulous pork sausages, supreme steak and delicious lamb shanks....and while you're there pick up some chicken carcases to make authentic chicken stock - they're only 30p each!

 Priors of West Lynn is a fantastic shop with super-friendly staff.  Their produce is all top notch, you will be spoiled for choice as you peruse their chiller cabinets.  We especially recommend their smoked bacon, smoked on premises in their state of the art smoke-house out back!  Located on St Peters Road, oodles of free parking, get yourself down there today!

You'll find Kings on Wisbech Road in South Lynn, and you really should pop in soon.  I wish I lived next door to these guys as their meat is top quality and they also offer locally sourced fruit and veg.  Tell John that Rate My Sausage sent you!

Vancouver butchers is right in the middle of town, appropriately in the Vancouver Quarter shopping area.  Great special offers make this a must-visit shop, and if you only buy one thing make sure it's their awesome spare ribs - deliciously meaty!

 Van Pelt is synonymous with excellent pork and many people rate them as Lynn's best.  Try for yourself, stroll down Norfolk Street and sample their piggy delights for yourself....

You'll find Giffens just along the street from Bowers, near the clock tower, and you won't be disappointed.  High class meat at great prices, we especially recommend their Smokey Joe sausage creations....try one this weekend!
