Game on!

Game on at Godfreys!

With the Covid-19 virus repercussions vastly increasing the demand for cooking at home every day - maintaining our usual constant availability is proving difficult - but rest assured we are  working tirelessly with our Farmers to quickly replenish availability as soon is possible on a Daily basis - so you can continue to enjoy eating seasonally  

We continue to strive to offer full service normality - and availability - but hope you understand if some Cuts periodically run out for a short period of time

Game is one of Nature’s natural larders and delivers to us some of the most flavoursome and healthy meats. 

It opens up a whole new range of textures and tastes for the food lover to experience and enjoy.  

Mouth-watering array of textures and flavours
Because most Game has a highly active life and a natural diet it produces lean, low fat and cholesterol meat with a mouth-watering array of textures and flavours. 

We take great care in expertly sourcing only the best quality produce and presenting it perfectly prepared for the kitchen.

Worth the wait!
Some Game is not available all the year round but when it is available - it’s worth the wait!

Posh or easily affordable?
Few would deny the delicious flavours of crispy roast Pheasant or rich pan-fried Wood Pigeon Breasts - but is it a posh treat or easily affordable?

There is a perception that Game is a high cost product because of its association with the exclusive sport of shooting - but nothing could be further from the truth.

An astonishing array of tastes
Game producers are not experiencing so much of the pressure of high grain prices that so affect Beef, Lamb and Chicken - so Game is becoming an increasingly delicious, popular and healthy and affordable alternative - as more and more people start to experiment with cooking with the varied and fabulous choices that Game offers.

Not only do you get an astonishing array of tastes but Game is also surprisingly very good for you.
One of the healthiest meats
Compared to other meats, Game is one of the healthiest meats with Pheasant and Partridge being particularly high in protein but low in fat, Cholesterol and Sodium – together with high levels of vitamin B6 and Selenium that are an essential part of our diet.
Essential omega-3 fatty acids
Dark meats like Pigeon, Grouse or Venison are also high in Iron and essential Omega-3 fatty acids.
Venison Shepherds Pie
Apart from the traditional pan frying or roasting some more adventurous cooks tell us that Pheasant is brilliant in Curries - and Venison makes for a very tasty and healthy Shepherds Pie.
