Lidgate's


An in-depth guide to meat from London’s oldest butcher

A good butcher shop is part of a community – a place of knowledge and trust. Founded in 1870, Lidgate’s is a 160-year-old family business that has become a treasured landmark in London’s Holland Park.

Bring their knowledge into your own kitchen with a cookbook that focuses on helping you achieve the best-tasting meat at home. These recipes highlight everything you need to know in order to cook any cut to its optimum flavour. Rather than a lengthy farm manual, or a nose-to-tail guide to eating, you’ll find simple ingredient pairings, creative ideas for every occasion and secrets of the trade.

Charles Lidgate founded C Lidgate in 1850 at 110 Holland Park Avenue. Danny Lidgate took over from his father David Lidgate who inherited the business in 1979 when his father died; David was 19 at the time.

They have featured on Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Cookery Course and Christmas Cookalong. Other celebrity endorsements include: Mark Hix, Fergus Henderson, Tom Aikens, Richard Branson and Nigella! The products on sale include meat from the Highgrove Estate, owned by Prince Charles

“They put their customers first and are proof that natural produce, service and knowledge are a formidable combination.” – Sir Richard Branson

“Lidgate’s… the best bird you can buy; a good turkey reared well is what makes all the difference.” - Nigella Lawson
