I have been a chef for 30 years with the last 12 as Executive Group Head Chef for Galloping Gourmet.  I am constantly reviewing my suppliers in order to make sure we have the finest possible produce being delivered to all our sites throughout the country.  It is not just the quality of product and price that makes a great supplier, there’s the accreditation that is needed to ensure that companies are working as hard as yourself to keep in line with current guidelines.  There’s also the personal side of suppliers, where by you get to talk to the people that prepare, pack and delivery the products you’re ordering.  Having used Heart of England throughout the 12 years at Galloping Gourmet I found that they cater for all our needs, and I would highly recommend them to any catering operation, big or small.

“I discovered Heart of England Catering Butchers after multiple Butchers had failed to meet the demands of our busy, destination Pub and Restaurant. From day one our rep Russell understood our needs and specifications and was able to provide us with exactly the product that we required. His wealth of experience has been integral in helping us with menu development and introducing us to to new cuts and ideas. As a Chef and Manager there is usually a compromise to be made between quality and price but with Heart of England this has never been the case. They have consistently provided the high quality that we require at a great price that keeps our customers happy and returning time and again.”

As Head Chef of the Hippodrome I am proud to say that we are supplied by Heart of England. They are an excellent meat supplier, friendly and prompt service as well as high quality produce. They have been our supplier for 3 consecutive years and have never given us a reason to consider elsewhere.

As a Chef, I understand the importance of fresh, high quality ingredients. I and my diners have found the produce from Heart of England to be exceptional. I have had great comments about the steaks, the Sunday roasts and the gammons.

I would heartily recommend Heart of England.
