About J W Mettrick & Son Ltd
Mettrick's, the Multi Award winning Butchers. We are different to most butchers in that we process local beef, lamb & freerange pork through our own small abattoir. You can be assured that our meat is top QUALITY.
J W Mettrick & Son Ltd began with George Woolley's original shop at Hadfield in the 1890s. George was known locally as "The B&B" (Bookie Butcher). Going into business with his nephew Jack Woolley Mettrick in 1903, the business name changed to J W Mettrick.
Jack's son James came into the business, which then became J W Mettrick & Son.
Family has always been very important - as can be seen from the name changes in the business - and J W Mettrick & Son Ltd has been family-owned for over one hundred and ten years. In fact, the shops are now run by the fifth generation of the family.
Today's modern business operates two shops (one in Glossop & one in Hadfield), more recently opening in a temporary premises on Melbourne St in Stalybridge (hopefully making it a more perminant fixture) an abattoir in Glossop, and an online shop. It employs over 60 staff including 5 members of the family.
Over recent years, JW Mettricks have been successful in winning many awards, and have also featured in many TV appearances, both Local and National. Including featuring in the Hit TV show League of Gentlemen.
