Our Story

Stirks Family Butchers began in 2010, but Johns love for butchery started way before this at the tender age of 14. He got himself a job in his local butchers Davidsons and 10 years on, after learning from the best, John bought Davidsons at the age of 24 and the rest is history.

In such a short time, we have grown to be one of the most successful Butcher Shops in the North East region, from having just 3 members of staff when we began to now having a team of 30, offering the highest quality meat to customers all over the North East. We believe that providing a place for those to visit where they know and trust, means that there will always a place in the local area for our trade.
