Stand and deliver - your money and your steak knife?
Great Yarmouth has a proud maritime history. It's home to a Navy Barracks, we believe, which is opposite the Pleasure Beach at South Denes, now a housing estate.
Down that south end of Yarmouth, there is also the column of Britannia, with Britannia facing inland to Burgh Castle and beyond, guarding this sceptred isle.
There's other associations too with Lord Nelson, Queen Victoria and Charles Dickens.
Dickens famously set parts of "David Copperfield" in Yarmouth and used a local family as characters - the Peggottys no less.
Blundeston, over the border in Suffolk, was Dickens's base and he used to walk many days to Norwich and back across the flat marshlands of East Anglia.
So why the history lesson from this butchers in Great Yarmouth?
We obviously feel pride towards our town and love its history, evident on Northgate Street, South Quay and The Rows, but also to explain that we may be end of the line, but we deliver across the region. Read more here.
You order, we stand and deliver.
We have customers across East Anglia, 60 miles south to Ipswich and 60 miles north west to King's Lynn, with many points in between.
Norwich and Ipswich are regular stop off points for us, but don't worry if you're closer to Great Yarmouth as we still make covid secure drop offs to Gorleston, Belton, Bradwell, Burgh Castle, Hopton, Corton and Lowestoft etc. We cover all villages north of us too from Caister to Ormesby to Stalham and North Walsham and beyond.
Our customers are a great mix too of those buying for meals at home and those buying to serve meals at cafés, pubs and restaurants.
Clearly with many of the latter now closed, our delivery service is predominantly to homes across Norfolk and Suffolk.
