Allens of Mayfair


Michael Winner (gourmand) is among the loyal customers of this Mayfair institution operating for nearly 180 years from the same site, though not with the same owners – Justin Preston and David House (both butchers by trade) saved the business from imminent closure when they bought it in spring 2006. Beef and game remain the fortes; in season you’ll find snipe, teal and widgeon as well as more common species such as pheasant and grouse, and for a small charge Allens will process birds you have acquired. Meat boxes are also available, including a gourmet weekend selection and a weekly meat box (available online) for two or four people.

Great meat but poor poor service. I cannot in good conscious recommend the online delivery service. Ordered online twice, both orders under fulfilled with missing items. Many cuts supplied came in at half the weight advertised. Poorly packed the second time. The customer service reaction to our complaints was very very poor. Multiple calls and emails elicited little reaction and little apology. I really hoped for more.

Very , very poor service if buying online. Ordered 3 selection boxes, only 1 turned up and that had 4 missing items!!! Waited in for 3 deliveries that didn't arrive, still waiting for the goods that I paid for over 2 weeks ago
