The West Family have been Butchers since 1830

The Sway Butchers Shop is situated in the picturesque New Forest village of Sway, just 3 miles north of Lymington.

This Family Business is currently run by 6th Generation Master Butcher David West. Originally from North London where his Grandfather, Father and Uncles all had Butchers Shops, David arrived in Sway in the hot summer of 1976, and over the last 40 years, the business has become well known for Excellent Quality Produce.

Personal Service

We still believe in personal service at Sway Butchers, so if you require any advice on choosing a specific cut of meat for a recipe or to order something for the weekend, just give us a call at the shop and David or one of the team will be able to have a chat to sort your requirements. 

Alternatively send an Email, and we aim to get back to you straight away.
