High Quality Catering Butchers Since 1950


Established in 1950 in Leadenhall Market by Robert Ashby, Ashby’s has grown into one of London's finest suppliers of quality meat, poultry and game. Jon Ashby (the late Robert Ashby's youngest son) now heads-up the business with the help of his own son and Co-Director Douglas, and a team of highly-qualified and long-standing employees. Whilst much has changed within the company, we still pride ourselves on providing the same quality product and personal service since 1950. Ashby’s launched the catering butcher's arm of the company in 1990 and this is now a thriving business operating from a high-tech depot in Bermondsey, South East London.

  • Even if they were more expensive I’d still go here, but the reality is you’ll pay less and get freshly butchered meat to order that tastes better than anything you’ve ever had before.Geoffry McCaleb (on Google Local)
  • This is not a ‘meat under glass’ residential butcher – they are probably the place that supplies those butchers.Geoffry McCaleb (on Google Local)
  • I’m from Texas and I’ve lived in London for 15 years. Hands down, this is the best butcher in London…. The best quality steaks and lamb I’ve had outside of Texas – and they’re friendly as hell.Geoffrey McCaleb (on Google Local)

Ashbys Van

Ashby’s supply big named commercial organisations, restaurants, independent caterers as well as private individuals in the City, West End and throughout London and its suburbs. We offer a unique service to all our customers that a well established family run business can achieve, which is individual, personal, friendly, professional and prompt. Our fleet of liveried refrigerated delivery vans are on the road from Monday to Friday, endeavouring to make all deliveries by 11:00am. However in order to meet the needs of our broad range of customers we try, where possible, to cater for earlier or later deliveries and can offer a second delivery service when necessary.
