What a fantastic end to a truly amazing Centenary Year ! On Thursday evening at the prestigious Kent Life Food and Drink Awards in Ashford, S.W. Doughty was named as Butcher of the Year. This is the first time that we have been nominated as finalists, in what is a very competitive category, making our success all the more rewarding. A huge thank you to all my staff who I know impressed the judges not only with their extensive knowledge of meat cuts but also the friendly atmosphere, they help to create in a truly traditional setting. Thanks must also go to all our lovely customers who nominated us, and who continue to support us with their regular visits and lively banter!
