H G WALTER: Because it’s Cool
H G Walter are the butcher of choice for a significant number of Michelin-starred restaurants, food writers and food critics. They are also the butcher of choice for the street-food Prego masters, the Growlers.
But don’t let that intimidate you, their hiring policy seems to favour personality as much as passion for good meat. This means you can walk in to their Hammersmith store and ask even the most basic of questions. You are as likely to come out with an unusual cut of meat and knowledge of how to cook it as you are a prime bit of beef.
They sell beef, lamb, pork, veal, poultry and venison. Make sure you don’t forget the handmade scotch eggs and marinades on your way out. You can pass them off as homemade if you want to…
H G WALTER: Because it Matters
H G Walter were established nearly 50 years ago and the family-run business prides itself on doing things ‘properly’.
This means they only work with farmers who farm the old-fashioned way and allow their animals to free range.
H G Walter buy and butcher whole carcasses, which is good the farmers, and means none of the meat is wasted.
