The Thorough Wild Meat Co is an award winning family of artisan butchers and cooks.  We use sensational Salt Marsh Lamb, 28 day hung Luing Beef and fresh, locally sourced ingredients to create a North African infused smorgasbord of salads and sauces, spit roasts and burgers with plenty of flavour and originality.  We also make all our own sausages and bacon and all of our sauces (bar Heinz Tomato Ketchup as it’s unbeatable!).

Below are some examples of our festival food.  We can’t do all of it all of the time so expect some variation on a theme! 



We use a lot of fresh herb and pulses in our salads and grow edible flowers to decorate!  Ingredients are seasonal.  Here are a few examples.

Pearl Barley and Lentil Salad with Parsley, Pumpkin Seeds, Roasted Pumpkin, Pomegranate and Peas.

Mediterranean Bean Salad with Fresh Herbs, Roasted Root Vegetables and Rich Garlic and Tomato Dressing
