Join Nathan Mills at The Butchery to learn about all things meaty. Our archway was chosen so we would have heaps of space to teach you all. The Butchery's classes will be a chance to be very hands on, and to take home all the meat you have worked on or have it stored and aged with us depending on the animal being cut, experience tells us that chicken doesn't age well, but beef gets real tasty. If you cant make it to a class but would still love to have your own bit of beef aged for a special occasion or just because, give us a call or stay posted to our Twitter and blog feeds so you can see what is coming in and when it will be ready.

On joining a class you will be provided with a white butchers coat and apron, to wear during the class and basic butchers tools, saw, chopper, boning and steak knives. We do recommend wearing comfortable fully enclosed leather shoes.

Classes are hands on and physical with a small group of 6-9 students. They are not just demonstrations, everyone gets involved and gets hands-on experience, all overseen by 1-2 experienced butchers. All classes end with something yummy to eat.

Great day out

A most wonderful educational fun day out, I learnt a lot about pork and making a butcher's knot as well as the art of tying the sausages together. Highly recommend this course, it was full on but very enjoyable. Not to forget the enormous amount of pork that I took home. Well done Nathan.

Bash The Beef

mikeelliot.home@outlook.com attended Bash the Beef, Break the Beef - Hind Quarter in March 2019, reviewed on 11 March 2019

What an amazing day. We arrived at 1pm and left about 8pm and the day flew by! Nathan is a really great teacher and helped us work through each individual cut taking the time to explain how and why the butchery is done this way.

The way the day is structured is perfect. You listen, learn and understand butchery in detail and its very hands on and very releaxed. You work in groups of 3 which is perfect and nothing is rushed - plus I cant believe how much great meat you take home. The website says around 8kg and to bring bags but we each took around 15kg of meat home, of every type of cut. We have some seriously big steaks in the freezer!

Once you finish you have a nice meal and some wine before taking home some really great meat for the fridge and freezer.

I really recommend the class, and will be back for the next course of lamb or pig. Dont delay, book it today and fast as places fill up so fast.

Great Experience

Nathan made us very welcome and delivered an excellent course in lamb butchery. The Butchery is easy to find and Nathan was very patient with those of us that were new to the experience!

The course is great value - you come home with the half lamb that you cut up during the day and it was great to finish with a meal and glass of wine. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and the experience. Would thoroughly recommend.

Great day!

What an amazing day I had. Nathan and Scott were fantastic teachers and guided us through all the various cuts as we made them. Never knew there was so many! I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day

Punished by pork

jplaistowe attended Punish the Pork, Praise the Pork in April 2018, reviewed on 23 April 2018

Had an amazing day punishing the pork and left with the most enormous mound of pork to take home that I will be eating for weeks. It was a fantastic day that was really hands on. Great instructing by the team and thoroughly recommend doing this course. Looking forward to doing the beef one next already!

Great time

I do not think this course could be better. We both had high hopes for the course and they were easily met. You learn the basics of butchery abd a great appreciation for the skill. People are not joking about the amount of meat. Our freezer is now full.


Guys - thank you for a wonderful experience l

Can't recommend this more highly. Nathan and Scott are very knowledgeable and friendly. They take you through the process, breaking down a huge hind quarter into beautiful steaks and joints.

As others have said, bring a big bag. You really will need it to carry all of the beef home!

Absolutely fantastic day

David Aston attended Punish the Pork, Praise the Pork in April 2017, reviewed on 20 May 2017

I was given this as a Christmas present and have always been sceptical of these types of courses. However this was well organised and the instruction was clear and easy to follow. The quality of the pork was excellent (from Ben's mums small holding). I would definitely recommend this course if you want a hands on experience.

A brilliant day out

ross.easterbrook attended Bash the Beef, Break the Beef - Hind Quarter in April 2017, reviewed on 24 April 2017

Taking on half a cow with two knives and a saw seemed daunting at first but working slowly through the various cuts with Nathan and Scott made the process very straightforward and enjoyable.

The group was a good size and I would highly recommend taking part in one of The Butchery courses. I would also recommend a small wheelie case to get everything home!

Brilliant day.
