    Donald Russell are the suppliers of the most incredibly good tasting Lamb, Beef and Game that I have ever eaten. Just to put things in perspective, I am a timesserved Apprentice Chef (5 years) who has spent his life in the Catering and Hospitalty Industry and am now retired. I buy from this supplier in the certain knowledge that I will receive the very highest standard of meat that it is possible to purchase.

    Donald Russell is a prince among suppliers. I order from them regularly and could not think of buying anywhere else. All their produce is superb, and delivery is of the very highest standard, easy to order. The produce comes perfectly packed and always on time. I really cannot praise them enough. Betty Brown

    Once you have tasted meat from Donald Russell, you will never have any other. I cannot praise them highly enough. It was one of their legs of lamb that caused me to eat meat again after being a veggie for 13 years. I have not looked back.

    The meat is of very high quality and the service is not only first class but also very friendly. I order from them all the time and have never been let down.

    I found my local butchers were closing and could not bear the thought of going to the supermarket for my meat supplies. I had even given up looking at the poor quality on show. A friend told me about Donald Russell rang up spoke with Ron and he talked me through in detail what I was looking for before promising to ship it out to me for the following tuesday. Never tasted better in my life and I used to think my local specialist butcher was good. Now I know what quality is I will never buy anywhere else.

    Cannot go back to supermarket meat and poultry after tasting what Donald Russell had to offer. Their chickens are out of this world - so full of flavour. The steaks are to die for, the fish is delicious and our son, a real junk food expert now won't eat any other burgers. Customer service is second to none also. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

    The range and quality of meat available is superb. And as for service I recently had ad elivery in which the delivey company had damaged the box thereby allowing the frozen meat to start to thaw. I phoned Customer Services and they immediately arranged for a replacemnt delivery to be made at the time of my choosing. I call that a pretty good "no quibble" policy!

    Donald Russell does meat as good as any you will taste, but that's not all. They offer unsurpassable customer service and all the guidance of a neighbourhood butcher, even to mail order customers. Donald Russell have single-handedly changed the way I think about meat: from being a chicken breasts and steak (anything I could put in a pan and flip once!) cook, I now cook belly pork, oxtail, and shin of beef (to name a few) with confidence. Donald Russell are, hands down, my food heroes.
