From everyone at Browns Butchers, we wanted to say a massive thank you to all of our customers, for helping us get named as the 'BEST BUTCHERS' in the West Midlands, in the 2023 Business awards!
We could not have done it without all the hard work from our team and everyone who comes in and shops with us, so thank you again everyone.

About Us

We pride ourselves on top level customer service, after all the business would not exist if it wasn't for you. We have nearly 150 years of experience working at the shop with the 5 members of staff.


Established in 1938, we have seen many changes in the last 81 years! Originally owned by Mr Eddie Brown, he brought all four sons into the business. Having 4 shops in total.  In 1995, the brothers branched off to do their own different things in the butchery trade, leaving our famous Roger Brown to build a successful business in Harborne.  His idea, to bring top quality ethically reared produce to the area under the belief that, 'you are what you eat'.  This included grass-fed beef from Shropshire, free range Packington pork, Welsh Salt Marsh lamb (available July-September), Welsh border lamb, free range chicken, ethically reared veal, wild game, free range Christmas poultry. All of which are outdoor reared and free from growth promoters.


We also produce our own sausages on the premises, using only the finest prime cuts of shoulder, leg and belly.  82 years later, our founder, Roger Brown is still making them along with his son Jason Brown.


9 years ago, Roger closed our shop in Lonsdale Road. This being a combination of lack of off-street parking and a shop that could not be adapted to today's high standards of food hygiene. Moving the entire business to his shop at Northfield Road. This having a free off-road car park.


Roger Brown has now retired handing over the reigns to myself, Jason Hyde (36 years working for Roger) and Jason Brown to keep the business running to the high standard it has become.
