Williams and Son Butchers - Meet our local suppliers

Here at the Chough, we pride ourselves on using the finest quality ingredients in our products and do our utmost to source these from local suppliers.

We thought it would be nice to showcase some of these suppliers so that you can see exactly where the ingredients that we use in our pasties and other products come from.

We know that food provenance is important to our customers and it’s equally important to us too to use the freshest, highest quality local ingredients that we can.
