Description

We are different from most other “direct from farm” meat suppliers as we are professional butchers who farm. The business has been farming and butchering since 1880 and to this day we still “dry age” and mature our meat the traditional way on the bone before cutting for today’s modern consumer.

Fabulous

by on 17 August 2012

This place is brilliant, when I usually go to a butchers shop I am faced with an employee with less knowledge them me, when it comes to type of cut, length aged and the affects of this. This normally results in a lengthy queue and discussion. When I ask for Porterhouse steak or Filet Mignon at warrens they know exactly what I mean and process the order very quickly. Resulting in very little waiting to be served. Also these butchers are proper Cornish with pheasants hanging amongst the rafters. Vegetarians beware your faith may hit the floor when you smell warrens meat cooking. As for the negative reviews which are totally unfounded, perhaps you got a little confused and mixed warrens up with T****.

Brilliant

Amazing range of meat of superb quality, of course you pay for what you get, in a large supermarket I can get 50% water with my sausage with 49% fat 1% battery pig meat. At warrens I get 100% quality in all aspects. If you enjoy 99% water and fat, don't go here, its the opposite. An award winning supplier to award winning restaurants and households.

Excellent butcher shop

by on 16 July 2012

Superb butcher shop and wonderful service by an extremely polite staff. This firm has not built its very high reputation by rudeness - forget those negative reviews - sorry, I just don't believe the negative comments.

Best butchers in the UK

by on 25 March 2012

Totally agree those bad reviews must be written by a rival. Have visited the shop for 30 years; they have the best service and meat anywhere. Their meat is used at Michelin star restaurants in London and used to be sold via Wholefoods in High Street Ken. If you buy in Lanson, it's incredibly good value for money. Which is why I bring a box of meat with me to London with every visit to Cornwall. Plus Phillip himself was named an "icon of Britain" in a recent book so there.

I can only think the two one star ratings have been written by a local butcher who is jealous of Warrens success. I live in Plymouth and travel to Launceston just to go to Warrens. The staff understand the cuts of meat extremely polite and the quality of what they sell is second to none. I did have a problem once with some Lamb, I called and next time I visited it was replaced without any hassle. Keep up the great service, thanks

Best butchers in Britain!

by on 14 December 2011

Completely shocked that somebody wrote a bad review. Very, very odd. This is one of the best butchers in the country - setting the standard in both quality and service. And with regard to the quality of their meat - they are suppliers to at least one three-starred Michelin restaurant in London that I know of. Incredibly value as well and the queues trailing down the street speak for themselves. I can only think the negative reviewer was thinking of somewhere else. I love, love, love Warrens!

I had to write a review after reading the negative feedbacks as after being a local user for 6 years and now living 3hrs away I can honestly say that they are the finest, most cheerful and helpful butchers we've ever used. We miss them and the high quality meats!

Bad value for money, the sausages I bought were not properly formed and smelled of vinegar, the polish worker was very rude.

This is a completely unfounded review with no logic to it, it must be written by a jealous rival.
