EW Revett (Wickham Market) - Pork

After receiving an email suggestion from Rachel of Halesworth, and then another recommendation later in conversation with a friends son, we thought a visit to Wickham Market would be most appropriate!

Wickham Market is just of the A12 between Woodbridge and Saxmundham in Suffolk. We've driven past on route to granny's many times.  The butchers shop is right in the market place and is very easy to find with it's bright red awning. Parking however was a bit of a drag, but with a bit of patience we got a space opposite.  EW Revett & Son's shop has a butchery section and a very nice looking deli section too.

Now here's the gripe. I was the only customer in the shop and I bowled in said hello, asked for 6 pork sausages, tried to engage in conversation with the young butcher behind the counter without success, all he said was the price. Not what I would call a great shopping experience!

However the sausages themselves looked super, hanging in their strings off the hook, so let's hope they make up for that...  

So, cooked up these I would say were 70%+ pork (I will call in again to confirm this) and I'm pleased to say looked the business.  Nicely browned natural skins, no splits, just about medium texture, succulent with a slight crumbliness, good taste, and the bite and chew were very good.  Now the flavour was a tad mild for me personally but the ladies here liked them...so let's ignore the earlier gripe shall we...

Rachel of Halesworth...good call!

Definitely worth a visit to buy a few if your over that way. Good value too!
