BROMSGROVE’S popular Butcher’s Block is set to get a brand new look after four years in the town.
Work on the High Street shop, owned by the Holsey family, requires a lot of work, including rewiring, lowered ceilings and a complete re-tiling from front to back, along with a better fully-functionable kitchen.
Head butcher and co-owner Michelle Holsey Sheppard, who runs the business with her wife Lilith said the place was ‘looking tired’ and in need of a boost.
“We’ve just had a rent review and have managed to significantly lower the rent, that’s why we’ve had to wait so long to make the shop our own, there just simply wasn’t the funds until now.”
Lilith, head chef of Lil’s Baps, added: “This has been a long time in the making for me.
“People of the town really seem to enjoy my food and I want to bring more great options that are made in-store.
“We want to extend our current range of ready meals as well as adding some home made pies and fancy gluten free options too.”
A dry ageing cabinet will be added for those who like ‘something a little extra special’.
Michelle added: “We have been aging meat for a while and love talking through the process with customers, by adding the cabinet people will be able to see the process for themselves, it’s really quite exciting to be honest.”
The store will shut at 1pm on Easter Sunday and will open with its new look on April 26.
The pair are planning to celebrate the revamp properly at their annual charity event on the first Saturday in August where this year’s nominated charities are SOBS (Survivors of bereavement of suicide) and Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer.
