New Independent Butchers in Tonbridge....

It's absolutely marvellous that a traditional butchers has decided to open on Tonbridge High Street. They've been very industrious in telling people up and down the High Street that they are now open. Not just shoving a leaflet through the door but actually coming into my shop to talk about it. Actually I had noticed them already and had wondered what the shop was going to be just before they opened; thought it might be a poncey deli actually but rather pleased it isn't. They are situated right next to McDonald's but I'm hoping that their burgers are alot tastier and more generous than Maccie D's! I really really really will try to support them but I did say that about the greengrocers and look where that got them. Being married to a pescavegetarian (that's a new word I've just made up which means someone who eats fish and vegetables but definitely no meat from furry animals) I don't have a weekly meat shop but I am rather partial to nice meaty burgers, home made sausage rolls, and fine pork pies. I've already had me lunch and yet my mouth is watering at the mere thought of all this lovely food.  I've been saying for sometime that it's incredible that an old market town like Tonbridge can have a High Street with no butchers but I'm pleased to say that Ian Chatfield's have now put that right and good on em....

What you really need is a fishmongers then. A butchers shop is only a butchers shop when there's sawdust on the floor. And just in case you think there is anything else in them, Mcdonalds burgers are 100% whole cuts of British and Irish beef.

Amusing thought that they might be, after all, Tesco's Horse burgers were from Ireland, well Poland!

Wow. The butcher was busy today, four fantastic butchers serving great looking meat, the queue was out of the door! Great, well done, and thank you.
