I LOVE the Chopping Block, everyone is super friendly, and now we’ve had meat from there for a few months, it has made us wonder how we ever put up with the rubbish sold in supermarkets. Second to none, highly recommended.”

The Chopping Block put together a hamper and sent it to Wales for a birthday gift. Such friendly and fantastic service and the hamper was beautifully packed and full of lovely products. Great service and great food.”
