It's a meaty line-up for sure, but who has the best butcher website in Suffolk?
Anybody who lives in or visits Suffolk will surely know that we are very fortunate in having an abundance of award-winning local butchers to choose from.
Most have built up loyal followings through their great selections of meats and high standards of customer service. It’s also important to remember that Suffolk butchers often use local farms and supply local businesses.
Using our unique digital audit scoring system, nobody came out flawless and most had some areas on their sites that needed improving – that said, we have a clear top ten to reveal to you and we are sure that a lot of theses sites will improve and adapt in the near future.
These scores and this top ten ares purely a comment on the technical merits of the businesses websites as we see it and not in anyway a reflection on the business, products or services that these (or any other) butchers provide.
if you think we have missed anybody then please let us know and we welcome all comments and feedback.
