Meet Church's Traditional Butchers: Church's has been supplying the highest quality raw and cooked meat products from England and Scotland since 1888 and we're delighted to have their meat counter in our Food Hall.

Originally opened on 17th May 1888 by Stephen John Church, Church’s Butchers is a family run establishment which has been trading on the same site for over 130 years.

During that time, Church’s have built a long-standing relationship with the people living in Epping and the surrounding areas, some of which are still served now - several generations on!

Church’s believe it is their core values that separate them from the rest and these have been handed down throughout the years by the Church family.

John, the director states that these core values are “our relentless desire to serve every customer to the best of our ability, and by sourcing only the highest quality raw and cooked meat products from England and Scotland.”

It is these principles which have generated such success, and Church’s believe it is what will keep them in business for years to come.

When you visit the counter at Great Amwell you will be met by a friendly and professional team – John and Jay. Want your meat prepared in a certain way? John and Jay will be more than happy to oblige, and if there’s something you can’t find, just ask and the team will happily try to source this for you.

Choose from a huge range of fresh meat, including only the best cuts of lamb, pork, beef, and chicken. Try the Wild Boar and Apple Sausages, Scotch Tomahawk Steaks, Spanish Harbour Marinated Chicken Breasts or Dry-Aged Beef on the Bone. These are just a small selection of the products Church’s has to offer and there is so much more!


Don’t delay – visit our Food Hall and take home something truly delicious today.
