Mills Butchers

Mills Butchers: A Tradition of Excellence Since 1978

Mills Butchers has been a cornerstone of the Hockley Heath community in Solihull, West Midlands, since its establishment by Steve Mills in 1978. With a deep-rooted passion for butchery, Steve passed on his skills and dedication to his son, Rob Mills, who proudly continues the family tradition, having taken the helm after refining his craft in Henley-in Arden and bringing a wealth of experience and a fresh perspective to the business. Our fully refurbished, state-of-the-art premises on Stratford Road is not just a shop but a symbol of our unwavering commitment to maintaining the highest standards in butchery, which includes upholding traditional techniques while embracing modern innovations to provide our customers with the finest quality meats and service.

Craftsmanship and Provenance at the Heart of Every Cut

At Mills Butchers, we believe that the best meals start with the best ingredients. That's why we meticulously source high-quality local produce, emphasizing native-bred beef, organic lamb, and free-range poultry. Our specialties include salt marsh lamb and Gloucester Old Spot pork, among other seasonal meats such as venison and guinea fowl. By purchasing carcass meat and aging it traditionally, we ensure unmatched flavor and texture. As proud members of the Q Guild, we represent excellence and are part of an elite group of top butchers across the nation. This prestigious membership is a testament to our commitment to quality and craftsmanship, ensuring that the Q Guild seal is a symbol of trust and excellence for our customers.

From Farm to Your Fork: A Culinary Journey

Our selection is a testament to our commitment to variety and quality. We proudly dry cure our own bacon and hams and offer an extensive range of meats that cater to discerning tastes. Our beef is sourced from native breeds, hung and aged to perfection, ensuring a rich and deep flavor. Our lamb options include both organic and Saltmarsh varieties, each known for their distinctive tastes that elevate any meal. For pork lovers, we provide rare breeds like Mangalitza, celebrated for their exceptional richness and flavor profiles. Additionally, our poultry offerings include free-range chickens and a variety of seasonal game birds. Complementing our meats, our deli counter features a curated selection of English and continental cheeses, pâtés, and cooked meats, designed to satisfy every palate with high-quality, flavorful options.

Local Sourcing and Ethical Practices

At Mills Butchers, sustainability and ethical sourcing aren’t just part of our business model; they are at the core of every decision we make. We passionately pursue a policy of local sourcing, where each supplier is carefully selected based on their farming practices and the quality of life they offer their livestock. This close relationship with local farmers allows us to ensure that all animals are treated with respect and dignity, adhering to the highest welfare standards. This hands-on approach not only supports local communities but also allows us to introduce specialty products that are not only unique but also ethically sourced. Through regular visits and direct engagement, we maintain a transparent supply chain that enriches our diverse selection while upholding our ethical standards.
