about us

Welcome to The Art of Meat butchers in Arbury Court, Cambridge.

"Our unique selling point is that we provide all the traditional skills of the family butchers but combine them with novel technical food design to create gourmet meat products with an innovative twist from the best locally sourced livestock."

Jon West


We are now in our sixteenth year of trading, here at The Art of Meat and thankfully we are still enjoying continued success with our range of novel and contemporary products made from the finest locally sourced meats.

After leaving a career in Molecular Biology, owner Jon West created a modern take on the traditional butcher's shop. His enthusiasm for the best quality local produce is complimented by the talents of his colleagues. Ayden Gillet, top Butchery student in his year, Luke Hammond who has 13 years of butchery and sales experience and of course Clare West, part time retail and book keeping help and full time wife.
