HG Walter reviews
I have been going to HG Walter for over 3 years. I recently moved away from the area and still make the trip over to Barons Court for my meat, as it's just so good. They also give great advice and cooking tips. By far the best butchers in London!

I love this butchers. Been going for many years and the staff are always totally helpful. I buy lots of old-style cuts like trotters and hearts as well as the general stuff, and they are extremely knowledgeable.

A fantastic shop tucked away in this exciting corner of London. With very helpful staff, an awesome array of meats to throw on the barbie, and a stone's throw away from my front door! I couldn't ask for any more!

I have recently been following the 'Paleo' way of eating: cutting out all grains, legumes, sugar (except naturally occuring fructose) and processed foods. I need to eat good quality free-range, outdoor-reared and grass-fed meat.
I looked online and found a few establishments offering to deliver to me from Scotland or Wales, but I wanted to see the meat, talk to the butcher. I found HG Walter and wandered up there one lunchtime. What a revelation! None of my 'silly' questions were too much trouble. They do deliver too - free locally and for a modest charge nationwide.
This is an amazing establishment. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I have worked in the meat industry for the last 36 years and I cannot recommend Peter Heanan of HG Walter highly enough. From his earlier days in the '80s holding up the traffic with the huge double artics from Inverurie, Aberdeenshire (what great advertising), to more recently being voted the meat trade's regional award winner. I congratulate you Peter!

A fabulous shop, with fabulous staff and meat. I have been visiting Walter's for some time now on my way home from work and am always stunned each evening by their amazing window display. A wonderful shop, with a display bursting with freshness and colour. Thank you HG Walter!

I'm an international catering student in London, and had never been to an English butcher before. I had always bought my meat from shopping malls. But after reading Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's book 'Meat', I decided to visit a local butcher, which happened to be HG Walter.
The experience was amazing. I was interested in watching one of the butchers working the meat, and was even offered a chair while I watched him roll my 5-week matured sirlion! This butcher offers a great variety of good quality organic meat with excellent service. If ever I open a butcher's shop in India it would indeed resemble HG Walter!

I love this place and cannot fault anything I've bought here. The service is second to none and even though I'm a north Londoner I come here every opportunity I get. Their stuffed chicken breasts and minted rack of lamb are well worth the journey!!

I have often pondered trying this butcher out and did so for the first time very recently, despite often threatening to do so. The service, attitude and quality is simply outstanding and, compared to a certain very smart butchers in Holland Park, very reasonable indeed. I bought sirloin steaks and veal chops here last Saturday and must confess that they were excellent - in fact, the best veal chops I have eaten in this country in 20 years. A truly wonderful butchers and well deserving of every accolade they have and will continue to receive.

The most amazing variety of organic meats in London. Passionate, knowledgeable and polite staff make every visit enjoyable. An absolute must before a BBQ!

Agree with all the other reviews - the meat is simply amazing and all the staff are very helpful. I found the prices very reasonable.

This place has fab meats and people serving you who know what they are talking about! Will always come here when shopping for osso bucco, my favourite dish! Try their chicken stock, pancetta or veal shanks.

By far the best steak in London, it just melts in your mouth. And if you want to do a bbq just ask for recommendations they know what they are talking about. Top marks guys keep up the quality.

I've lived down the street from H.G. Walter for several years now. The neighbourhood butcher is, regretfully, a thing of the past in most places. What makes H.G. Walter even more special is the quality, variety and passion they provide customers. An oft-heard complaint is that exceptional customer service is unavailable in the UK these days. I challenge anyone who makes this assertion to visit our local butcher in Barons Court.

It should be higher than the 4th nicest thing in London! Awesome establishment.

This by far the best butcher in the UK. The meat is simply perfect.

100% the best butcher in Europe. I have lived and worked in 8 cities in Europe and have a real passion for meat. Truly amazing quality butchers, only the best quality meat, always handled with care. The guys obviously have a real passion for what they do!

I love these guys... When looking for a new flat/house, my biggest prerequisite was that I needed to be close to my favourite butchers. They are always happy, and take time to offer advice and cooking instructions. I LOVE THEM!

Wow - traditional family butcher with core family values. The Caledonia crown beef is out of this world.
