    I've just returned from Devon which

    has the best meat in England to find

    this marvellous butchers. The sheer

    range of stock is breathtaking. Every

    kind of animal & fowl is here, & some wonderful

    cooked meats too. If you want a good joint for

    Christmas you MUST place an order weeks before,

    or you may be unlucky No ifs or buts, it gets 5 STARS easy!

    I cannot believe that I have been using this butchers for so long and only just tried their Gloucester Old Spot sausages!

    Wonderful - as good a sausage as I have ever had.  Knocks all those fancy sausage shops with their ridiculous flavour combos in to touch.

    Simply excellent butcher and reasonably priced for central London.

    A bit off the beaten track but…

    How can I be the first to recommend such an established gem? I look forward to buying my meat here - it's how standing in a sweet shop used to feel when I was a kid. I first went here when I needed a decent ham just before Christmas one year and my regular butcher let me down. McKanna's gave me just the cut I wanted. They always have a great selection (you might want to telephone in advance for pig's liver, but that's all I can think of) and are always friendly and helpful. Shops like this one make London a better place to be. Perhaps they'll slip me some free sausages if I mention this review.

    I echo the previous two reviews. I work in an office over the road from Theobald's (McKanna's by it's real name) and the quality, variety and price are absolutely second to none. I have yet to encounter a cut that they don't have in stock (and I cook with quite a wide range of meats). Whenever I visit, I always end up buying things I hadn't intended to, because it all looks so good. Very helpful and friendly staff - there's usually a queue out of the door, but don't be put off - that's a good sign!
