Since opening in October 2014, Brace of Butchers has become a huge success due to its affordable quality and exceptional service.

In the first 12 months we have been recognised with three awards, both locally and nationally, for our excellent service to Dorchester, Poundbury and the surrounding area.

We do what the supermarkets cannot, we have a a very short supply chain and can manage our product purchases direct from local farmers and producers. This ensures that our specialist butchers, Rob and Ben, are able to produce some of the best products you can find.

The secret to our success is taking extreme care when sourcing our product. As opposed to purchasing separate cuts from several sources we at Brace of Butchers procure entire animals from local farmers. This is what we believe to be respectful and responsible purchasing.

Our butchers then both skillfully and carefully cure and age the meat in-house to improve the texture and flavour. This is how we are able to offer over 60 cuts of meat from our counter allowing you to vary your choice daily. All of our sausages have no artificial flavours or additives and are all gluten free.

Not only does our shop offer the finest butchery, we have also teamed up with some of the best producers, importers and foodies in our area to offer local game, produce, smoked seafood, beautiful cheeses, fresh baked goods and a fantastic range of local and international charcuterie.

We hope you enjoy your experience with Brace of Butchers and thank you for all your support.
