Entering its tenth year in business, Halfords Traditional Butchers offers its customers a wide range of products to provide an extensive shopping experience.
From all cuts of meat purchased locally where possible, to game, fish and deli items, Halfords isn’t your typical butchers.
Proprietors, Nicki and Lee Halford, have developed their deli items after taking on board customer feedback and special requests, with some products proving so popular they have become shop staples.
Over the years, customers have enjoyed culinary twists on pork pies, gravy pies, celebration pies and sausage rolls, amongst many other foodie treats. Halfords is also the home of the famous Tewkesbury Banger, the shop’s most popular sausage with a recipe inspired by their customers.
It is being close to their community that is especially important to Nicki and her family.
“We like to support local events and causes as much as possible and show customers that we’re here to serve them to the best of our ability.”
From Ledbury originally, Nicki and her husband Lee, a butcher all his working life with 19 years experience in the trade, believed Tewkesbury needed a butcher’s shop on the High Street. When they visited, the Halford family fell in love with the town. They quickly realised that it was the perfect place to open their premises, with the town offering plenty of scope for business opportunities, alongside a feeling that this was the town to become their home and raise their family.
“Tewkesbury is superb for business diversity. The borough is vast and offers a lot of potential for businesses large and small with great connections to surrounding cities.”
