Robinsons family run butchers in Wingate have been supplying locally produced beef, lamb and pork from the fields of Durham for 5 generations – over 120 years. The butchers employs 18 people and is the main employer in Wingate, County Durham.
Robinson’s are renowned for providing quality meats, delicious home-made pies and locally grown produce. Robinsons Butchers are located in Wingate, County Durham, 8 miles from Hartlepool and 8 Miles from Durham City. Just 2 minutes from the A19 we serve customers from Peterlee, Seaham, Durham, Hartlepool and right across County Durham and the North East.
We recently moved into bigger premises which means we can offer a wider range of meat and meat products all under one roof. We also bake a range of pies and pasties and freshly prepare ready meals such as steak and ale hotpot and chicken in leek and stilton sauce.
The slaughter house remains in its former position and this is where butcher Trevor Robinson slaughters locally reared produce in a traditional manner. This ensures customers are provided with the finest cuts of meat.
People think butchers are an expensive option but in fact our prices are very competitive compared to supermarkets and we can guarantee where the meat has come from. Our chickens are free to roam around a local farm. With this in mind, it’s no surprise that Robinsons were awarded Rural Retailer of the Year 2006/2007.
In addition to the butchers shop, Robinson has a cafe located next door which serves a range of home-made dishes. The cafe is open every day for ‘eat in’ or ‘take out’. Sandwiches are made to order and we have hot specials plus a wide variety of cakes and scones. We are also opening our traditional carvery every Thursday evening. Outside catering is also a service provided by Robinsons for those special occasions, be it a party buffet, hog roast or BBQ. As well as providing the food, we offer a service where we come out and cook for our customers too. Every weekend we provide catering for clients in County Durham, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Durham and across the North East.
Former Tyne Tees weatherman Bob Johnson is a fan of the butchers he calls in every so often for a pie, to eat on thecountry walks that he enjoys so much in his retirement.
