Lishman’s Awarded “Best Butcher’s Shop in the UK 2017”

4th December 2017

Lishman’s Awarded “Best Butcher’s Shop in the UK 2017” Lishman’s are seeing a sound return on all their investment

Reciprocal business makes the world go round. Situated in the famous town of Ilkley in Yorkshire, David Lishman is a Butcher, Curer, Charcutiere and owns the “Best Butcher’s Shop in the UK 2017, an ex Captain of the GB Butchery Team and a Rick Stein Food Hero.
MD Judith Tatham has long been a fan of Lishman’s and shopped there for some fifteen years or so. Being an admirer of food operations which strive to be the best, and always showing an interest in their latest shop developments, Judith was delighted when David asked if she would be interested in his new Pie Bakery development at the back of the shop.
Full of ideas and seeing opportunities for the future, David knew what he wanted but needed someone to put it into practice and provide a good quality build which would be visually appealing to any of his customers looking through the large entrance windows as they walked from the car park.
Working with both David and daughter, Emma Lishman Morton’s were able with their bespoke manufacturing, to maximise both space and workflow resulting in “doing the job in half the time”. Investment in a new Rational Combi Oven, Foster Cold Room and Blast Chiller, Winterhalter Utensil Washer, and Turbovac together with their existing equipment has resulted in an efficient and pleasant workplace for the Lishman team.
Morton’s have added a large specialised butchery table to the existing production unit and with a new large Smoking Oven, David has turned his attention now to the curing and hanging room and is working with Morton Sales Director, Mark Rodden for the next round of development

We’re thrilled to have worked with the UK’s “Best Butchers Shop in the UK 2017”.
