Thank you Russell for the quality meat, service and butcher humour! It was truly great to meet someone else who is as passionate about our honourable profession as I am. I am always proud to see what quality products can be produced in a small shop when you have a team of skilled people focused on being the best in the county at what they do. I will darken your doorstep on our next visit to the in-laws! Kind regards, Mark Mallinson Cranstons (Brampton).

Russell may remember me?, I called in the shop on Friday afternoon 16th May. He was a very entertaining, And very helpful. And not forgetting his lovely assistant. I was visiting Woodhall Spa, and seen the village web-site prior to my visit, and spotted your shop on the business pages. I was staying at scampton, and as such had to ask my B and B to put the Sausages and pie in thier fridge. Well i'am back in Bolton now, Just had the large pork pie with a cup tea. And have to say it was absolutely delicious. On to the sausages next. Will be in touch. DO YOU DELIVER?

First tried your pork pies at Horncastle market, and I am from Melton Mowbray which is meant to be the home of the PORK PIE (haha) but I very soon became addicted to your own home made pork pies and I now make regular visits to your shop making it a round trip of 170 miles, I also come home loaded with Haslet, sausage and pork pies for family and friends and not forgetting something for myself :) :) :) my family and friends much prefer your products than our own local products. You can be sure that I shall be traveling over to your shop with another good order very soon. Thanks, John Goodrich, family and friends.

Undoubtedly the best sausage rolls we have ever eaten - better than home made! A great proportion of meat to pastry. The pork pie with onion marmalade is incredibly tasty. Once tried it will be difficult to pass the shop without going in for more! Whenever we visit family or friends we always take selection of Hirst's products

Products Bought: Sausage rolls, pork pie with onion marmalade today, but all their meat and products
