Everything you need to know about our website revamp

Our website just got a makeover! Buying quality meat from the butchery just got easier. How is it better you ask? We know the old site was clunky. ...


Great meats seem to be well hung and tender, top sausages and bacon.
I travel from Mairehau to get this high quality at a reasonable price.
Friendly helpful staff make it an enjoyable experience.Well worth the Trip.
Give them a try I'm sure you'll go back.
Highly recommend

Best butcher in town :) Great meat, excellent staff, wonderful shop. Have been buying from these guys for the last 15yrs and nobody can beat them. Stop & say 'HI' to Brad & the crew and pick up yourself, lunch/dinner while your at it. 
Best Butcher ever.

Phoned to ask if they could bone a leg of lamb- no problem was the instant response ! Whilst collecting the leg of lamb, I also picked up a great piece of salmon and some other cuts of meat that looked great. Also noted you have duck, will remember that for my next get together with friends. Thank you for being so helpful think I may have a new local .

Thank you Halswell Butchery for supplying us with delicious meats for our next day after the wedding bbq. Lots of compliments about the tasty sausages, meat patties and the chicken nibbles. Good to have it delivered free as well. Great service all round.

Wherever I go in my networking (and I do get around town) ALWAYS hear great feedback about this butcher e.g. cleanliness of premises excellent, consistency and meat of "high quality" standard, efficient service and staff look smart, clean and tidy. You just have to visit this place - value for quality meat / good range of choice. So for all you residents close to this butcher, you definitely have a WINNER of a Butcher - in your community.
