About us

Because meat matters

The Meat Man was formed in 2009 by a father, Phil Brown, and his son, Tom. The two of them decided that people deserved quality meat at the right price, so our original premises were a brick-and-mortar shop with five staff. Selling meat wasn’t a new idea, in fact it’s been around since time immemorial, but our unique approach enabled The Meat Man to expand exponentially and become the nation’s local butcher.

Years of rapid growth

What sets The Meat Man apart from the competition is not only our unwavering commitment to giving our customers premium meat at an affordable price, but also our passion for helping you to get creative in the kitchen. By offering a wide range of meats and condiments, we’re your one-stop shop for everything from daily family meals to special occasions, barbecues and Christmas dinners.

Take a look through our wide variety of fresh meat products and you’ll instantly understand why we grew from a small shop into the specialist provider we are today. We now employ 18 staff and have firmly established ourselves as one of the UKs largest online fresh meat companies.

A genuine dedication to quality

Everyone at The Meat Man is very proud of what they do, which is reflected by our award-winning service and 5 star food hygiene rating. Based In Oswestry right on the border with Wales, we sell prime Shropshire beef that’s sourced from as little as five miles away from our headquarters. This means that whether you’re around the corner from us or live at the other side of the country, you always receive the freshest meat and the finest cuts.

Master butchers

Every order we send out is hand-cut by our team of Master Butchers, who know how to mature meat until it melts in your mouth. Your order will be cut to order the day before it arrives at your home and vacuum-packed to keep it in perfect condition.

We go above and beyond to ensure quality, consistency and the ultimate customer experience, but if you’re not entirely satisfied please do get in touch so that we can rectify the situation.
