About Bennetts Butchers

Bennett’s Butchers in the early 1960'sEstablished in the early 1900’s, the Butchers Shop was purchased by the first of the Bennett’s generation Richard (known as “Dick”) Bennett in 1959.

Dick was from a family of butchers who used to farm and rear their own produce in Wymondam, near Melton Mowbray, just over the Lincolnshire boarder. Dick’s mother, used to hand-bake the Pork Pie’s using a secret recipe passed down from her mother, Dick’s Grandmother, a tradition that is continued to this day by the fourth generation of Bennett’s.

In addition to the Pork Pie, over the years Bennett’s speciality has been the world famous Lincolnshire Sausage. Based on the traditional recipe and methods, using only the finest quality local ingredients, the Bennett’s Lincolnshire sausage is amongst the finest in the county.

Located in the unspoilt, picturesque seaside destination of Sutton-on-Sea, the Butcher’s sits just 200-yards from the sandy (and usually sunny!) seafront. However, it has not been all plain sailing for the shop, and in 1953 it was hit by the devastating east coast floods, when over 5-feet of water poured in from the North Sea causing the town and much of the surrounding area to be evacuated. The flood line still sits prominent on the outer buildings of the shop to this day, although thankfully the secret recipes survived!

Bennett's Butchers todayWith the generations of knowledge and experience that has been passed down, in recent year’s Bennett’s began to produce some equally tasty and popular variations on the classic Lincolnshire Sausage and Pork Pie including venison or pork and tomato sausage, and a pork and cranberry or pork and stilton Pork Pie. Today, Bennett’s also produce a wide variety of pies and pastries, all hand-made and prepared daily on site using only the best quality locally reared produce and NO artificial preservatives, colourings or flavourings.
