About Leeson's

 

Established by Steve Leeson in 1998, Leeson Family Butchers is the culmination of Steve’s twins passions for butchery and his family. Supported by his wife and children, Steve offers only the finest quality produce he is proud to serve his family, for you to serve to your family.

 

A perfect marriage

When Steve Leeson left school, he spent his first few working years as a butcher’s apprentice. A foray into the building trade ended when Steve was in his late twenties, and he felt his original vocation calling to him.

Steve joined a family butcher’s shop in Grantham, and his friendly personality, intelligence and passion for the work were soon noticed by boss. Readers, he married her!

Keen to be able to offer appreciative customers the finest quality free range meats and homemade produce, Steve opened Leeson Family Butchers in Oakham. He learnt to bake and experimented with recipes until he was satisfied he could make the best meat pies and pastries possible.

Steve’s dedication has been rewarded with many prizes and accolades, and most importantly the best reward he could ask for; loyal customers who return every week to stock up at Leeson’s Oakham shop.

“I highly recommend this great butcher in Oakham. They make the best pork pie I’ve ever tasted!”
Dr David Huntley

The Leeson’s Team

The Leeson’s team are a happy, friendly bunch who will greet you with a friendly smile and are always ready to help you choose the finest cuts of meat or the perfect pork pie.

As well as Steve, Dave (far right) is a Master Butcher with many years of experience. He was classically trained by Dewhurst butchers, and is an expert in the craft. When not serving customers, Dave can often be spotted at the butcher’s block skilfully deboning and sectioning a carcass.

Jack (second left) joined the team five years ago, and quickly became a favourite with our customers. His main focus is customer service, although he also loves butchery and is learning the trade during quieter times in the shop.

Newcomer Martin (second right) previously worked as a butchery team leader at a supermarket. Martin and James (not pictured) are all-rounders who help our customers and master butchers.

“Visiting Leeson’s is a treat. It’s great to be able to see the butcher working so I know my meat has been properly prepared, not just arrived at the shop in packets!”
Mrs Elizabeth England

Testimonials

“A massive thank you to Leeson’s Butcher in Oakham. Firstly they recommended the right sized turkey crown for our Christmas dinner which was tender and full of flavour. Then they selected a wonderful piece of sirloin which myself and the whole family enjoyed this Sunday. I highly recommend this friendly butcher in Oakham. Thanks again..”

“Leeson Family Butchers do delicious award winning pork pies and pastries on the Oakham high street. Definitely worth a visit if you think you deserve a treat. Furthermore, they offer delicious locally sourced meats and chutneys, making Leeson’s a family favourite in Rutland. “

 

“Due to not wanting to walk all the way to Tesco’s, I went into Leeson’s to buy some rump steak. I got a huge slab for just over £5.00. It was absolutely fantastic. I will NEVER buy my meat from Tesco or Co-op again. Talk about melt in the mouth. AND, all the staff are helpful happy and keen to have a chat. Well done Leeson’s.”

“Had a big barbeque recently – 35 guests and got all my meat from Leeson’s. Almost everyone who attended said how good the burgers and sausages were. I ordered everything a couple of days before the party and collected late on the day of the party, so I didn’t have to squeeze it all into my fridge. Very impressed and would definitely use them again.”
