Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market Michael’s Butchers, a high quality butchers business with over 30 years successful trading history.

The ‘turn-key’ opportunity is now being made available due to our clients decision to now retire, however he has confirmed a full business handover period will be offered to allow the smooth transition of this much loved community business.

The business makes approximately 1,000lb (453kg) of Sausages a week in the summer, as well as making their own dry cured Bacon, Gammon Joints and Gammon Steaks. The business also has a very busy burger trade, and our client has invested in labour saving machinery.
