Steyning Butchers have opened a new branch at Millbrook in Horn Lane (immediately adjacent to Woods Mill). Initial opening hours are 9:00-17:00 on Thursdays and Fridays, 9:00-15:00 on Saturdays (but they expect this to increase over the next six months). Visited today, they had a good range of both meat (including rabbit) and poultry (including guinea fowl). It all looked very appetising. Responding to a compliment on the appearance of the chicken, the butcher noted that their chicken contain no water beyond what the hen chose to consume during its lifetime. They stock free range eggs (and bacon, of course) and will supply veg boxes to order. ‘Walking distance’ may be a bit of a stretch for some readers — but Horn Lane is much closer than Steyning. Your intrepid reporter (who drove there) purchased a 14oz T-bone steak (£8) for consumption this evening.
