Testimonials

Good meat is a joy. 
When I first tried a lesser known breed of pork reared on a small farm it was a moment of revelation.
Whether it be beef, pork or lamb, the breed of animal defines its flavour, texture and character. When married with a good butcher who understands the responsibility of taking these prime animals and continuing the love....

Henry Harris, Harcourt Inns, London

“...at Bright we feel immeasurably proud to work with butchers like Swaledale. It’s abundantly clear that Jorge and his team have a passion for lesser known breeds of pork and beef, and have a fantastic relationship with their farmers across Yorkshire. The aroma, flavour and texture of their meat, when cooked slowly over burning coals on our grill, is a wonderful thing.”

William Gleave, Bright Restaurant, London

....in these times, I find it admirable that Swaledale are switching from supplying restaurants to all of us at home. I know they are doing this, in the main, to help support the farmers that they have such a close relationship with. A win win situation for anyone who appreciates the best, and cares for our food producers, I can’t wait to receive my first Swaledale home delivery.

We’ve been working with Swaledale for a good few years now. Their product is top notch, as are their people. The love and care that goes into the butchery and animal husbandry really reflects in what comes through our kitchen weekly. Their beef in particular has a rich unctuous fat ideal for barbecue – rendering through the meat slowly when smoking gently and caramelizing beautifully on a hot grill. Top restaurant quality product available for the home-cook / backyard barbecue enthusiast.

David Carter, Smokestak, London

I have been working with Swaledale Foods for sometime now and cannot express what an amazing consistent product they supply to myself at Leroy and there network of farmers in and around the Yorkshire dales. Incredible heritage beef and please don’t forget the pork especially the chops. Give them a crack and support the local food supply chain.

Sam Kamienko, Leroy, Shoreditch, London

Meat from Swaledale foods will always be nicely aged, well sourced and excellently priced.  The staff are professional and helpful, we have used them for years.

Steve Williams, 40 Maltby Street, London

...and passion it takes something all too often taken for granted and makes a meal restorative, comforting, sustaining and truly pleasurable Jorge and Charlie are butchers with that passion and they have built up a network/co-operative of farmers in Yorkshire who recognise that provenance of breed, pasture and freedom create superb cuts of meat.
Whether grilled rib of Dexter beef...

Henry Harris, Harcourt Inns, London

...or braised pigs cheeks from a Middle White pig, a meal produced with meat from their butchery is heaven indeed. This is why I use butchers like Swaledale, I want to know the breed, I want to know where these magnificent animals have been reared and I want to know that my butchers respect and understand what they have in front of them.

Henry Harris, Harcourt Inns, London

Swaladale have supplied the anchor and hope for over 11 years. Put simply, they are the best butchers I have ever come across. Their standards, care and craft are exceptional.
From selecting -through aging -to butchery, no shortcuts are taken. This results in the best quality meat I have ever worked with......
