Meat N16 is the original, and flagship, Meat London Shop. The company is the brainchild of two Stoke Newington friends and residents who pondered a number of joint business ventures before deciding what their local area really needed was a good butchers shop. We opened in the summer of 2011 and were very quickly welcomed and embraced by the local community. It was always part of our plan, and company ethos, that our shops would be part of the community. We have strived to ensure that Meat N16 holds its position as a traditional British butcher’s, with a modern feel. The shop is small. There is no serve over counter. The customers get close to the Butchers and watch their meat being cut and prepared as they chat and pass the time of day.
The full selection of Beef, Lamb, Pork and Poultry is prepared fresh on a daily basis, and on any given day it is likely that our endless array of Sausages are being made in the basement. Although the small shop only allows a minimal amount of space for deli products, we pack in cooked hams, air-cured hams, pies, salamis, olives, dips and a truly impressive display of British and International cheeses.
Moving into the back of the shop our wine room has a vast selection of eclectic wines. Our wine team have wine for every occasion, and the shelves are labelled with our suggested wine and meat matches. Every weekend sees wine tastings with our knowledgeable experts on hand to offer tips and advice.
The small prep area in our basement opens up into a purpose built course room where we entertain our guests at fun and informative courses in the art of sausage making or beef, lamb and poultry butchery skills. We can’t claim to be able to turn delegates into butchers in a 2½ hour course, but we can promise to de-mystify the process and offer a great evening out.
