Coates Butchers is a traditional Butchers shop on the outskirts of the historical city of Durham. We have been Butchers shop of the year finalists 2014, 2015 and 2016.
Our long-established business has twice been named Northern England`s Best Butcher. Our reputation is built on our commitment to providing only the best quality products, backed up by customer service levels that we strive to make second to none.
Whilst we never lose sight of the fact that our success is built on our role as the local family butcher, offering traditional quality meat products, we have also expanded and diversified our product range to include pies, cooked meats and a wide range of delicious hand made sausages. In fact we are almost as well known for our pies and sausage as for our quality meat.
Of course, we could not have gained these accolades without our loyal, hardworking and experienced members of staff.
We have a successful training scheme to ensure that the entire team has a thorough knowledge of the latest developments in our trade - and that they enjoy what they do.

The Guild is an association of independent meat retailers committed to offering top quality meat and meat-related products, with customer service to match.
