Coming soon………




I have found some fantastic new ranges for the shop recently and will slowly be introducing them from the end of the month. The first is a divine range of spice kits.

‘Each clever little (no waste) pack contains lovingly selected herbs and spices and an easy to follow recipe. There’s a shopping list on the back of the pack so you can get all the other ingredients needed to prepare your favourite dish.’

I met Ketan and his sister last week and their business started when he was at university and his mum sent him recipes and spices to make real Indian curries that would remind him of home. I love this family run business. The kits are not expensive, have very clear instructions and taste fab. We had the Rogan josh (Zach’s favourite!)for dinner last night and it was delicious, simple to make and much healthier than any takeaway version!

We will also be stocking their Peri Peri chicken, Moroccan lamb tagine and other world flavours, so come try them out! From November we will also have their range of rubs in the most gorgeous collectable tins. Not sure which ones I love more!?


Well done Nathan!

Thanks to all of you intrepid treasure hunters who braved the rain and entered our Summer Festival Piggy Treasure Hunt.

Well done Nathan! (age7) His was the first correct entry drawn out of our hat. When his family get back from their summer holiday they can look forward to the Family Barbecue Hamper that he won and we hope his kite prize is keeping him busy. Happy flying, Nathan.

We will be running another hunt later in the year and at Christmas, so keep a look out for those sneaky pigs!

Robson’s Butcher and Deli is going Social

Testing that this reaches Twitter and Facebook.

Royal Wedding

What fun to have a Royal Wedding to celebrate!

I am sure that the nation will be glued to their screens between 11 and 2, but we will be open for those of you who desperately need a couple more sausages for the barbecue or some delicious snacks for your street party. (here’s hoping the weather is glorious!)

Anyone making celebration cakes for the day, please feel free to drop in with a couple of slices for the Butchers!

Congratulations to Julie Penn on winning the draw for our fabulous hamper!
As well as a beautiful basket full of Robson’s finest goodies, Julie also received a voucher for the meat and deli counters.

Something for the little ones…

My son Joshua loves these cute travel pasta shapes. The aeroplanes are his favourite!
We also have little teddy bears to tempt those fussy eaters.
All natural, made with durum wheat semolina, water and dehydrated spinach or tomato for colour.
Nothing else added!

The Black Bomber has landed

Black Bomber Cheddar When we had two requests for Black Bomber Cheddar in the same day this week, we knew we had to get some in to taste. We’re really glad we did! This award winning Cheddar is smooth, strong and creamy. Everyone who has tasted it in the shop so far has expressed delight at it’s deep smooth flavour. Very tasty!

The Little Black Bomber Cheddar is a brilliant addition to any cheese board or just have a wedge of it with honey roast ham, fresh bread and pickles!
This Welsh cheese is made from pasteurised cows milk and is suitable for vegetarians.
We have it in individual 200g Truckles or a wheel in the deli counter that we can cut to any size.

When you’re next nearby, pop in and have a taste!

Robson’s is Open!

Thank you so much to everyone who came along to look, talk and shop – we had a wonderful day on Saturday and are thrilled that you agree it’s high time the area had a butcher again.

We hope you had a chance to enjoy the fun outside – Celie doing facepainting for the kids, Oscar at the barbeque cooking our Plain Pork sausages, Basil and Garlic Italian Sausages and the Marinated Butterflied Leg of Lamb, (Yummy! – See the the recipe on our site) and Adrian and Kay sampling some of our deli condiments, chutneys and drinks.

The feedback from the flyers and the day itself has been fantastic and we look forward to seeing you again and chatting some more now that we have had a few days to settle in.

A huge and heartfelt thank you to our family and friends who pitched in to help with all the preparations, to Nan Robson for spending so much of the day with us and to everyone who left comments, emailed their support or popped in to encourage us.
