Buckley Butchers have just passed our first Anniversary on the Lower Richmond Road and we want to celebrate with readers of the website - get 10% off all orders over £15 when you mention SW15.com!! My family and I took on Buckleys Butchers a year ago last May from Derek Magnet, (who made a good recovery in his retirement we are pleased to report). We are having a wonderful time in our favourite butchers and enjoying our growing customer following.
Christopher Hughes our Master Butcher, imported from Wales, not only combines wonderful quality meat and knowledge of the best cuts to you but has a seemingly endless repertoire of humorous jokes that surely would brighten the greyest of days!
According to memory (not mine!) there has been a butcher on site since the 1930’s. My family and I moved to Gypsy Lane, Putney in 1976 and I went to All Saints School as a little girl, walked our dog on the common and remember the High Street as a very different place to what it is now. But despite the onset of modern life today I am delighted to see Lower Richmond Road has managed to keep the village feel.
||Surprisingly we still get new customers coming in saying that they did not know we were here! Action was taken and Buttercup joined our ranks, which has been nothing short of a sensation! She is loved by many, sending children wild with excitement as they pass by. Buttercup, our life size model of a Frisian cow has put us on the map and we are delighted with her!
Her acquisition was a serious investment to help a small business survive these difficult times. Perhaps even an educational tool relevant to the product in the business and adding a little humour to the street! We hope you agree.

Buckleys Butchers feel very strongly that we uphold a good old fashioned service and sociable atmosphere.
We appreciate that supermarkets provide convenience of choice under one roof, but where else can you support independent farms, your local butchers and just as importantly enjoy the simple values such as knowing your name and have time to chat? In return for your continued support we will endeavour to reward you by consistently providing quality and a service which has been worth your while coming to see us.
Buckleys and its sister enterprise Parsons Nose, Fulham Road, are looking for your continued support and custom, we would love to see you as regulars. Call us with your orders and even enjoy free delivery if you are in the local area (over £30 spending). We can also help with orders for parties, schools, local restaurants and special occasions. If there is anything you might need that we don’t usually have in stock that does not mean we cannot get it! On the contrary we will be happy to order it in. Give us a ring on 0208 788 6160 at the beginning of the week and we aim to have it in by the weekend.
See you soon!
