It was okay. Had a good gnatter with staff, more range in most things but less in range than the other butcher I go to. My other butchers has a larger wine and beer range, here it was chardonnay, malber, sauvignon blanc, pinot noir and pinot grigio.

Got a couple of bacon butties (buttered rolls) with six rasher of bacon each, oh yes, and a couple of fresh steak pies (the beef was so tender).
