Patrick Strainge, Award Winning Butcher
Finding a quality butcher is hard these days. With supermarkets forcing many independent butchers out of business, you will often have to travel a long way to buy good quality meat for your table. Patrick Strainge is an independent butcher based in Bampton, Oxfordshire. Founded in 1973, the butcher’s shop specialises in providing you with prime meat from local herds.
As a member of the Guild of Q Butchers, Patrick Strainge undergoes regular rigorous inspections to ensure the quality of his meat and his butchery skills meet the Guild’s exacting standards.
Buying stock from local farms, many of which are owned and run by members of the Strainge family, means the Bampton shop serves an extensive range of prime meat and meat products: Windrush Valley free-range beef – Prime free-range pork Local free-range lamb – Fresh poultry – Award-winning sausages – Home-cured bacon and gammon – Home-smoked meats Freshly-made Meat Pies – Fresh free-range eggs.
All the meat sold by Patrick Strainge is fully traceable, and no growth promoting additives are used. The meat travels only between 5 and 10 miles from the farm to the shop. With ‘food miles’ becoming increasingly important in the war against global warming, you can be sure the meat you buy from Patrick Strainge has not travelled excessive distances.
Many of the recipes used by Patrick Strainge are top secret. They have been developed over the years and are a closely guarded secret. As a member of the Guild of Q Butchers, many recipes are passed around between the members, Britain’s best butchers!
