Situated in the heart of rural Northumberland, Turnbull’s of Alnwick is a sixth generation, award winning family butchers, established in 1880 by Roger Turnbull.

The business is now run by Mark Turnbull and his son Daniel and prides itself on selling the highest quality meats, sourcing their Beef & Lamb from the local auction mart at Acklington, while their pigs are sourced from local Abattoirs. Poultry and Game is, where ever possible, local and always British.

As well as selling the finest quality local meats, Turnbull’s also sell a large range of home made Sausages and Burgers, Home Dry Cured Bacons, Home Baked Pies & Pastries, Home Cooked Meats & Ready Meals. The business also sells in Fresh Fruit & Vegetables, Dried Meats and has a large selection of deli products too.


Got several items from there and have to say: Everything is just perfect! They have wonderful pies and great ready made dinners. If you’re hungry and need a high quality fix: Go there, you won’t be disappointed!

The best butcher’s shop in the area IMHO. I often go in for joints or sausages and they have always been superb. The service is friendly and advice always on offer. It tends to be busy and you do have to wait to get served but that is a good sign.

Really friendly attentive staff who can’t do enough for their customers and TOP CLASS food. Just how local shops should all be – Marvellous Thank You all.

Planned a round of golf with some gentlemen we know from Yorkshire took some Turnbulls specialty pork pies with us. Lovely to take on a day out. 10 out of 10.
