Archer’s Butchers from Norwich has been named Britain’s Best Butcher Shop 2018 at the Meat Management Industry Awards.Archer’s, on Plumstead Road, is owned by Jamie Archer, grandson of Jack Archer who founded the business on Norwich Market in 1929.

“Judges have a long check-list when assessing butchers shortlisted for the Britain’s Best Butcher Shop title,” says Jamie Archer. “They look at every element of the business including our external signage and branding, the skill level of our staff, the variety of products we offer, our customer service and, of course, the quality of our meat. It’s a very thorough process so we’re extremely proud to have won the award.”

Meanwhile The White Horse at Brancaster Staithe has galloped away with the grand title of Best Pub & Bar Regional, East of England, at a national awards event. The Pub & Bar Awards 2018 selects 94 top pubs from each county in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. Rob Williamson, general manager at The White Horse says: “We are over the moon and delighted to receive this award and to be recognised nationally.”

Additionally the teams at The White Horse and near-neighbours The Jolly Sailors at Brancaster Staithe have been in fundraising mode over the past few months and have collected £5,065 for Macmillan.
