What did you like about the Food Shop?

We are the cookery school opposite Sparkes (www.Blackheathcooks.com) and we use them to supply all our meat, as well as running butchery courses in collaboration with them. We love the fact that they are truly a traditional family business - they offer fantastic, reliable service, great quality products and you can't beat Guy's knowledge about every aspect of his trade. Plus Margaret's traditionally made sausages are unrivalled in SE London!

What did you like about the Food Shop?

Not only do they have great produce but if it's a more unusual cut of meat (the sort the supermarkets don't sell because the profit margins are low) they'll even give you advice on how to cook it.

What did you like about the Food Shop?

Fantastic customer service and even better food!

I always use GG Sparkes as they go out of their way to ensure you get the qulaity product you want at excellent prices. We have enjoyed a variety of their products, but in particular their sausages are the BEST we have ever tasted - full of meat, no rubbish and no fat.

I cannot recommend GG Sparkes highly enough.
