We're proud to implement the methods and philosophy of a traditional Butchers shop; the meat and poultry is cut, tied and boned out on site, by our fully trained Master Butcher. If you're deliberating over a choice of cut or need any cooking tips for the meat you are buying, just ask and we would be delighted to share our knowledge with you. The beauty of coming to a shop like ours, is that you will always receive a friendly smile and the personal touch.




Our customers are busy people!! That's why we added a wide range of oven-ready meals & dishes to our repertoire. Not to be confused with a 'ready meal',  these dishes are prepared on site but NOT pre-cooked, so they retain the best flavours. All products in this range are served in oven-proof containers, so as the title suggests, they really are 'oven-ready'!



Over the years, Astles has amassed an astounding reputation for our homemade pies. With almost every pie being an 'award winner' in its class, its no wonder they're so popular. With a range of sizes, from individuals to extra large, and flavours from pure steak to chicken & ham, there is something for all tastes.
