Welcome to Martin's Meats - a traditional butchers with a modern approach

Based in the heart of the Cotswolds, Martin’s Meats is the home of longhorn beef. We produce, age, cut and pack the finest longhorn and traditional breeds of  beef for retail and the restaurant trade. We also supply Gloucester old Spot and Middle White pork, Cotswold Reared Lamb and Free Range Poultry and Game.

We are one of only a handful of butchers in the UK to age our meat in a unique Himalayan Salt Chamber which enhances the flavour and tenderness of the meat. Our passion to produce the finest meat  was rewarded in 2013 when we won the best product in the South West with our 28 day dry aged longhorn Cote de Boeuf at the Great Taste Awards, widely recognised as The Oscars of the food world and the biggest food awards of Great Britain and Europe. Our customers include Michelin Star Chef, Marcus Ashenford who states ” the best sirloin I have ever tasted”.

Open 6 days a week, customers can visit us in person, order via the telephone or the website for Local and Nationwide delivery.

New for 2016  the Longhorn retro 1979 Bedford Beef Truck, which will be available to hire for parties, weddings and festivals .

We let our meat sell itself

From Jamies Oliver’s 15 to The Plough at Ford the chefs that select and cook our meat choose us for a reason. They know that we provide unrivaled quality and service that’s second to none!
