'Better than any supermarket, by a country mile...'

Russ Lowe used to buy his meat from another Telford butcher, but felt the quality of meat and customer service was ‘a bit on the poor side’.

So he drove down to Badley’s – and the rest is history…

Russ, who works for HMRC, says: “The quality of the meat is second to none - better than any supermarket by a country mile – and the prices are competitive.

“I have to say that the customer service is outstanding, even through the difficult Covid restrictions, Kay and Lee serve the community perfectly… offering a delivery service when people couldn’t get out.

"Lee and Kay are ‘real’ and passionate about the business and you can see that by the shop and the food that they sell. Customer is their main priority.

“I have and will always recommend Badley’s because the customer service and quality of the meat is excellent.

"Locally-sourced meat, in-house products and friendly customer service - what more do you need from your local butcher?”

Russ says his favourite products are everything from beef for a Sunday roast to the shoulder of pork for a tasty goulash. “Also, the in-store ‘thick’ sausages are to die for.

“I have used a combination of all the ordering methods – phone, social media and the website, and all worked perfectly for me.

“Usually I will message Lee if I want a particular cut of meat for the weekend or a recipe, and Lee will oblige.”

So, are there any particular recipes which Russ recommends, that are created with Badley’s products?

“I cook a chilli with the minced chuck steak - perfect cuts of meat – and also pork and chilli goulash, with Badley’s again prepping the meat so I can cook it to perfection.”
