WE ARE AN independent BUTCHER SHOP based IN GOSFORTH, NEWCASTLE.
We've been happily residing at 15 Ashburton Road for the last eight years, but our cosy shop has actually been a Butcher's for over 12 decades. We love being nestled in the heart of Gosforth but we're especially grateful to be on a street inhabited by all independent businesses. We think we're in pretty good company.
GET TO know US
Charlotte grew up in Gosforth and went to Church High school. Whilst reading Theology in York she got a part time job in a Butcher's shop. She went on to train to be a Butcher with George Payne in Gosforth, Stewart & Co. in Jesmond, O'Shea's of Knightsbridge and Lidgate's in Holland Park. Whilst working the Christmas madness in London 2012, she discovered AE Hubb's for sale on Ashburton Road. After securing a loan designed for start-up's, she opened Charlotte's Butchery on January 18th 2013. She is still in awe that it happened so quickly. Eight years on, she genuinely believes she is the luckiest woman alive; especially after a few gins.

He's a health and fitness enthusiast and really knows his stuff when it comes to diet and nutrition. He also has a degree in Politics. Jamie is a superb butcher and home cook - his work ethic is incredible, his passion for food inspiring.
