About Us

Les Smith started work as a “Saturday Boy” in his local butchers at 11 years old – 66 years later and he can still be seen working along side his daughter Donna, son Pip, granddaughter Kenna, and grandson Jake– a proper three generation family business!

Smiths Butchers now operate a busy retail shop from Market Street, Eastleigh, as well as serving many restaurants, pubs, hotels and clubs, from a “state of the art” butchery facility, also in Eastleigh.

The under lying principles of quality, provenance, together with the highest welfare and hygiene standards, set us apart from many butchers.

Our 5 star hygiene rating at the shop, and Food Standards Agency LTTC approval status, achieved at the commercial butchery, of which there are only 9 such establishments approved in the UK, sets us apart.

Innovation is also key, and having made a name for ourselves as one of the most innovative and creative butchers in the art of sausage making, our extensive product list caters for most..!

Add to that, the excellent shop skills of Frank and Nick, we have a very capable and talented team, who know plenty.

Whether it be Frank, and Dry Ageing the “Best Steaks in Britain”, as recognised at the Great British Butchers Awards 2019; Donna producing multi award winning sausages, or Nick, producing award winning Drywors (dried South African sausage) at the first attempt, come and see what we have to offer.
