“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 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.

Exmouth’s Quality Butcher

We are Exmouth’s longest-established traditional butchers and have been providing quality meat and other local produce since 1900. We’re an independent butcher’s, with a single shop in Exmouth’s Magnolia Centre – look out for Mr. Trotter! The shop has remained family owned and run since the beginning, and we are fortunate to have such loyal staff and customers.

Quality Meat And Customer Service

We only sell quality, locally-sourced, free-range produce and pride ourselves on our customer service. Our meat has been awarded the Quality Standard Mark, so you can be assured of its superiority. Our traditional sausages and selection of pies use only the finest ingredients and are made on the premises. We also offer a hot-food service every lunchtime where you can sample our freshly-made hot dogs, burgers, pies, and meat baps.
