"About Us"

“Great meat..Great staff… Great choice.. Say no more…..”

-Sue Jones

Down & Son Ltd was established in Exmouth’s Exeter Road in 1900 by John Henry Down. The business later moved to its present location in Chapel Street which has been part of the Magnolia Shopping Centre since 1976. Our shop is easily identifiable by “Mr Trotter” who stands outside.

John’s sons, Stanley and Percy, joined the business and worked hard to establish its reputation for quality. The business is now run by Chris Down (Stanley’s son), and Gordon Trivett.

We are an independent butcher. Our produce is free-range and locally sourced where possible. Word of mouth to us is one of the most important aspects of our business and this is why we put our product and service as our joint, No. 1 focus. We thank all our loyal customers for spreading the good news that is Porky Down.
