Don’t want to get hands on? Join us for an in-depth demonstration with one of our best butchers, who has more than 15 years in the business.

You will observe the dexterity required to break a side of free range beef down to its constituent cuts. During the session you will be encouraged to ask any questions of our butcher, so make the most of it!

Onlookers will have the chance to sample the final product with a great selection of wines.
