Richard H. Turner is an acclaimed restaurateur with an unwavering passion for food. James George is a man who knows and loves his trade – he’s a keen advocate of traditional cutting methods and butchery.

Together, they formed Turner & George to bring back to the high street the same quality and consistency of meat found in Richard’s kitchens.

There’s a bit of meat to their relationship. Together, they founded the East London Steak Company in 2010, and with strong demand hammering at their door Turner & George was born. This artisan butcher’s shop is a haven for food enthusiasts, both online and over the counter at their shop on St John Street, Angel.

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to eat meat that has been ethically reared. Our meat will always taste the way that it should; we choose the best meat from British native breeds reared on independent farms and smallholdings, free from growth hormones, antibiotics or cruelty. We dry-age in house on the bone for flavour, make our own sausages and burgers, and combine all of this with a contemporary knowledge of taste and cooking. 

Our small team of butchers are on hand to answer any questions or concerns you may have about our meat, the ordering process, or even for advice on cooking and preparing.
