All meat is prepared using traditional butchery methods and beef is matured for over 21 days to ensure you get the most tender and succulent steaks and joints possible.


Mainly British native breeds are chosen, such as South Devon, Aberdeen Angus and Hereford, which thrive on the local moorland slopes on a predominantly grass diet. They provide a completely naturally reared product, with total traceability from farm to plate. If you don’t want to sacrifice flavour but are looking for leaner meat, why not try their prime cuts of Veal also available.

Venison and other game

If you are looking for something a little different, maybe for that special occasion and prefer lean meat packed with a rich flavour, try venison and other game. Their venison is not farmed but wild and taken from the local countryside. The animals have led a stress free and active life, which makes for more tender meat. As well as wild venison, Chris Rounsevell are able to offer wild boar, pheasant, partridge, pigeon, rabbit and guinea fowl.


Grass fed lamb is so succulent and sweet; they guarantee you’ve never tasted lamb like it. It’s supplied by a multiple of local farms and is matured for 1-2 weeks to really bring out the full lamb flavour.


Their pork is both tender and moist with a wonderful texture.


Poultry too is of the highest quality, not intensively farmed but range free in small flocks in barns to reduce stress and competition; this produces a happier, better tasting chicken. Also available are the finest free range duck, turkey and geese in the area.
