Alongside the usual suspects (meat, sausages, pies), you’ll also find cheaper cuts (onglet, ox cheeks, rabbit); own-made stocks and more exotic options via advance order, such as a three-bird roast of goose, capon and pheasant.

Top quality produce, beautiful shop refit, helpful and friendly staff and the manageress Patricia is such a lovely lady who will do whatever she can to help you. A great place to shop

Fantastic meat, great staff full of helpful advice. Spanking new shop refit. Great place to get all your meats for everyday or that special occasion.

A great community business with excellent produce and friendly service. Makes a refreshing change from big supermarkets and I've gotten to know all the staff on first name terms. Love popping in!


Great butchers shop the staff are most knowledgeable...first class service always...worth the time queuing on a Saturday.

The best butchers in London 😆👍👍👍👍👍😆yummy, yummy, yummy 💕💕💕💕💕😋😋😋😋😋

Great, friendly, local butchers, all the meat comes from well looked after animals and the best sausages in London.

I get all my cuts of meat here. Locally sourced produce that is top rate. Their pork and leek sausages are so good to be almost mythic. Their beef burgers are just as good if not better than you will get at any of the numerous burger chains around London but it is their rib-eye steaks that are their crowning glory. So perfectly balanced and beautiful to behold they will melt in your mouth.

Superbly delicious, fresh meat - probably the best butcher in the city! And, a lovely shop as well.


Love Godfrey's! Feels like you're stepping back in time with its original decor, and the selection of meats is superb. Bought a delicious lamb shoulder last time I visited, very reasonably priced. Excellent service.

love the meat, tasty! service is quality and delivery always on time and efficient.

Top quality products and efficient service from the fantastic staff. Will always go back!

Charming staff and top notch produce. Nothing is too much of a bother. Would never buy meat anywhere else.

Fantastic Butchers shop and the new refit looks amazing only coming a close second to the quality of their meat.

Godfreys is the best Butchers by far. It's meat is traceable and its staff the most helpful. The Godfrey family know how to treat its staff and customers. With the new refit it has got to be the best looking shop in England!

the BEST SAUSAGES Bacon Beef Lamb Pork used this Butchers for 20 years never had a bad meal the best xx

Godfreys is a family business and they really make you feel welcome and warm when you enter the shop. top quality meat and top quality service

My father always told me quality over quantity & Godfreys you truly get what you pay for. Addutionally the friendly staff make the shopping experience very smooth and stress free and they also give the most honest answers in terms of their products etc. recommended to all my family and friends & if you haven't already tried their pork chops then you haven't lived.

Godfrey's deliver a quality service everytime I go. Exceptional customer service with friendly staff always full of useful tips and advice from how to cook the meat to what marinades to use. Hands down the best butchers I've been to. Quality selection of meats that always taste amazing. Godfreys really is a cut above the rest

Great butchers, great people and great food. Wouldn't go anywhere else! I travel from one side of London too the other to get to this place which is a testament to the fantastic customer service given to you at Godfreys. 5 star
