Owner Pete Congerton runs the business with his wife Laura.

He said: “The latest award is gratefully received and means a lot to us in an ever evolving climate.

“And it shows recognition to the team at Cook & Butcher for their continued passion and dedication to maintaining the best craftsmanship in our field.

“Extra recognition was given for our long standing ethos of working with local farmers and artisan producers and our attention to detail for over 14 years.”

He added: “Retail is facing extremely challenging times with such high increased running costs and can often get bogged down with the day to day of running a busy business so this award was a great boost to our staff.

“We are very proud to be an independent family run business and things like this make all the difference to us.”
