Would not buy meat anywhere else! We are never disappointed in the quality of meat we buy here. The bbq pork ribs are our favourite! Pork and Stilton sausages also great! Thanks Richard, Ryan, Shannon and everyone else!

If Calsberg did Butchers then Carnivore are it. Top quality and friendly service, the selection is always big. The meat itself is top notch, and they always deliver on time when I put large orders in.

Richard's passion for quality and expertise in the business shines through. Great choice of produce, from the ordinary joints to the extraordinary cuts and, although in the past we have always prepared our own marinades, his marinated chicken and lamb are unbelievable.

Their Negril jerk sausages are the boom. Get some.

Gutted when my local butcher closed, tried Carnivore today and was amazed at the service, choice and quality. Will now be a regular.

 "What you'll find is attention to detail, consistency and exceptional produce rounded off with first-rate customer service. Richard is a passionate, talented butcher- couldn't recommend him highly enough" 

--Richard Harris, Chef and Food Stylist


Richard - I just had to write to. I went into your shop today for the first time and I cannot praise your business highly enough - just walking into the shop is a feast for the eyes and a real treat to behold - it is like being in a Knightsbridge store.I was served very courteously by a young man, & bought some chicken kievs. 
Without a shadow of a doubt, that was the very best chicken that I have
tasted in a very very very long time.
Such quality is impossible to find locally. Congratulations, I wish you continuing success.
Best wishes 

--Kim Ismet
I would just like to say a really big thank you for being our butcher. We were so upset to see John go as we have always tried to use our local butcher since moving to the area 20 years ago. As a family we will always try to support our local shops, budget allowing, but you are an inspiration and I hope you continue in Sidcup for many years to come.
Well done for a good first year.

--Natalie

Well done Richard and all the team....we need a good old fashioned butcher like you,your rump steak i had last week is the best i have ever had....
