Welcome to George Payne Butchers
George Payne has been a traditional family butcher for over 40 years, establishing his own shop in Brunton Park, Gosforth, in 1987. The business celebrated its landmark 25th anniversary in 2012.
The shop is renowned near and far for sourcing locally fed and reared meat products - notably rare breeds beef, lamb and pork - through long-established gate-to-plate partnerships with Northumberland farmers.
From these, George and his team devotedly and expertly create a vast range of hand-crafted products – from award-winning sausages, burgers, home-cured and smoked bacons and hams, through to succulent roasts and mouthwatering steaks, along with British birds of a feather, many free-range, and a full range of game.
Quite simply, something to MEAT every conceivable need!
