The shop in Castle Street has been a butchers for over 120 years. It even had its own abattoir at the rear which sadly closed in the early 1970’s

The Cowburn family took over from the Cowman family in the late 1950’s. We are very proud to be one of the first butchers in the country to reinvent Quality British Sausages, which we have been producing since the1960’s. Where we have led others have followed.

The Cowburn’s have been butchers for over five generations and each generation has built on the knowledge passed down to them. We feel we have held a unique position in the food market, as our reputation for quality sausages has spread both far and wide.

We have great pride in this reputation and have never lowered the quality of our products.

We are extremely fortunate to have a team of dedicated employees who share in this pride.

The meat we use in our sausages is specially selected and bought fresh from local suppliers. The beef and lamb is sourced at local auctions and our pork is from outdoor reared pigs.


The legal minimum meat content for sausages is 65% in pork and 50% in beef and other varieties (some of this % can include other meats). In our sausages however PORK is PORK, BEEF is BEEF, LAMB is LAMB etc. We aim for at least 75% meat content in every variety with no extra added fat. All our sausages are perfect for freezing.

The majority of the seasonings we use are specially prepared by ourselves on the premises and have been created from a variety of herbs and spices to give each sausage an individual flavour.

As you will see from our product list we produce a number of sausages that are free from artificial colours, preservatives, flavourings and antioxidants.

If you have any dietary concerns i.e. gluten free or salt free, please contact us and we will do our very best to accommodate your needs.

We hope that once you have sampled our sausages you will be pleased with both our products and customer service.

Cowman’s Butchers thanks you for showing interest in their range of high quality meats and British sausages.

Assuring you of my best attention at all times.
