Sad Closure of Egg House

Home » News » Sad Closure of Egg House
Emily Jeffrey

The Egg House Butchery took over the former Parminter's business, next to the former Red Lion pub at Church End, in June 2015 and since then has established itself as a very popular and much admired business focused on a desire to source the meat as locally as possible in order to support the local small-holders and small-scale farmers. A lot of their meat has come from within 10 miles of the shop and it is always from British outdoor-reared, free-range animals.

Despite Ricky's departure a year or two ago, Emily has continued to run the Egg House Butchery with great success and, with the help of her staff, has continued to achieve recognition and awards from the Countryside Alliance.

So it is with great sadness that we learn that the butchers is about to close.

Here is the formal statement from Emily:

"Some of you will already have heard our news, but I suspect many are not yet aware that I am devastated to be closing the Egg House Butchery at the end of May.

This has been a heart-wrenching decision to take and has not been lightly done. However, I have been searching for a butcher to work alongside Scott and Jordan for nearly a year with no success and it was too much for Scott and Jordan to continue to do on their own. I simply cannot continue without a butcher, so I must close the shop.

Our last day of trading will be the 25th of May 2019, a Saturday, when we will be open as usual from 8am until 2pm.

I would like to thank everyone who has supported the egg house over the last seven years, but particularly the last year and a half. It has meant such a lot to me that others share my passion about the quality and provenance of the food that we all eat, and it has been my privilege to share the amazing local, and British, produce that surrounds us.

If there is anything in particular that you would like to stock up on, such as minted lamb pies, maple and bacon sausages or Marmite sausage rolls, please do let us know and we will do our very best to fulfill everyone's orders.

You can call us on 01844 291480 to discuss anything you might want to order.

Please do pop in and see us over the next four weeks — we are trading as usual right up until the 25th May, and we would love to be able to say goodbye.
