Butchery Classes

We have a regular array of butchery classes, which offer you the opportunity to learn from Steven, the Master Butcher behind Block & Bottle. You can learn how to prepare beef, pork, lamb & poultry, or sausages & salami at the shop under the expert guidance of Steven.
More details and booking for specific dates can be found on Eventbrite (2018 dates now available). If you wish to just buy a voucher for your guest to redeem, this can be found on our online shop.
