London History

.’. C. Lidgate .’.

If you are having a walk down Holland Park Avenue looking for all good things that London can give to you, please make sure you stop by this lovely shop.

This West London Butcher established in 1850 (as you see at the original lamp outside) and has a reputation for amazing fresh meat and pies. The meat there is organic and free range, and a great deal of it is sourced from prestige estates, including Prince Charles’s Highgrove.

The Lidgate Butcher is at the same family hands for 5 generations and it runs for over 150 years, but while I was passing by it wasn’t the meat or the daily fresh made pies that impressed me, but the original features that the shop kept: the iron work, the lamp, the amazing mozaic and lets not forget the tradition.
