Hook & Cleaver

Traditional and High Class Butchers

Purveyors of the Finest Free-Range and Organic Meats

Here at Hook & Cleaver, we take pride in sourcing our meat from trusted suppliers and dependable UK farmers who maintain the highest animal welfare standards.  We carefully hand pick our meat and by doing all the preparation work ourselves, we can ensure the highest level of quality across our entire range.  To stand out as an independent trader, we feel we offer an unrivalled personal service and are happy to give advice on requirements and cooking, as well as tailoring any order to meet your needs.  We continuously offer free-range Norfolk chickens, free-range GM free Plantation pork, free-range grass-fed West-Country lamb and of course our dry-aged Aberdeen Angus beef.  We also stock a range of organic meats and rare breeds, including Salt Marsh lamb, Gloucester Old-Spot, Tamworth, Black Pig pork and various breeds of beef not commonly found in supermarkets. These vary week to week so feel free to ask what's on offer or make a request if you fancy something unique. 

Our Latest Adventures

What we're About...

To begin with it’s about doing something you love. We’d like to think you can see that we love what we do in the care and attention we take in choosing, ageing, preparing and displaying our meat. We have always believed in the principle of offering the most ethically sourced quality meat in return for a fair price. We also endeavour to wean people away from the supermarket-induced way of thinking that meat should be as cheap and easy as possible. Not only does cheap and easy scream a lack of quality, it also ignores the provenance of the meat, the farm it came from and the consideration taken working the land. It is here where we excel over supermarkets, which due to their sheer size cannot work personally with small and independent farmers in the way that we can. Nor can they provide the skill and craftsmanship which we can using our combined 180 years experience in this ancient trade. We think this quality shines through in our produce, and we are grateful for your continued appreciation and support.

The Shops

Established in September 2011, Hook and Cleaver first opened it's doors to the wonderful community of Pitshanger Lane in Ealing, West London. The founder, Paul, trained using traditional butchery methods and with over 20 years experience in the trade, was able to pass this knowledge on to the first recruits, and so the adventure began. 

Since opening, we have more than doubled our list of trusted farmers and suppliers, as we strive to grow, learn and hopefully improve our service and produce to you the public. We are grateful for our loyal customer base and continued support.

Pitshanger Lane

In September 2011, our first shop opened in the picturesque setting of Pitshanger Lane, West London. Originally just a two-man show, we operated on the principle of good honest quality produce for a fair price. There are now 6 members of our team here, with over 200 years experience between them all.

South Ealing Road

Seizing an opportunity arising from a retiring butcher, we decided to open our new little sister shop in August 2013 on South Ealing Road, West London. As well as offering the same service and produce as Pitshanger Lane, South Ealing provides both shops with our range of pies and sausage rolls through it's dedicated kitchen.
