Wally Dutton bought the shop in 1971 when he was just a youngster! He can remember when there was 3 other butchers shops in the village. He is the last remaining butcher in the village. In 1986 he under took a major refit of the shop, where he discovered that the shop was in fact a stable before it was the local bakery!
Wally trained as a animal grader for the Meat and Livestock Commission before coming a butcher, which now stands him well in his dealings with the local farmers where he buys some of his stock.
The shop currently makes a lot of its own produce, Sausages, Burgers, Cooked Meat, Stir n fry, Meatballs and Black Pudding to name a few items. We also supply local Golf Courses, Community Shops, Pubs, Nurseries and Restaurants. In 2009 we started a pilot project for Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Local Food for Primary Schools which we were very proud to supply until February 2016.
