Quality English Food
Good English and British food is underrated, overlooked and sadly not fashionable today. That's a great pity because we believe that English and British food is the very best in the world. It will outlast any of the fads that come and go as trends dictate.
Here at the Bristol Sausage Shop, we aim to celebrate one of the greats of English cooking and in doing so, help to preserve one of our best and most famous dishes.
The demise of English food has been joined by the demise of small, local shops ran by people who care not only about what they sell but also about those to whom they sell. We are proud to be an old-fashioned type of shop with huge emphasis placed on offering the very best quality products (all of which we personally test) from the very best local ingredients and suppliers. Moreover, you can be assured of courteous, open & honest, personal, friendly service.
Our sausages are made for us by Jesse Smith's butchers in Cirencester. We tried over 40 different butchers before we found the right mix of quality, care and a commitment to use local, naturally fed, "happy" meat, allied to an understanding of seasonal ingredients. Our tracklements are supplied by, who else, Wiltshire Tracklements!
The West Country has a peerless reputation when it comes to the quality of the food on offer and we are proud to be a part of that. However, locality should not override quality and as such, we offer a few carefully selected products from outside of the region that we believe are the very best examples of their kind. Our Denhay Farm bacon has won so many awards it must have a trophy room like Manchester United, the Sticky Toffee Pudding from Cartmel needs no introduction, nor indeed does black pudding from Bury. Our only food from outside of England is our Spanish chorizo, imported by Brindisa who oversee a fine quality product that comfortably compliments our traditional foods.
If you need a final persuasion to visit us, then our prices are considerably lower than you might expect. We have never found any comparable food retailer to offer our quality at our prices. That said, we have never found our overall level of quality anywhere else!
