Robert Withecombe Butchers (or "Withecombes Butchers") was opened by Cyril Withecombe in 1950 and taken over by his son Robert ("Bob") Withecombe in 1965. Bob had already worked for his father since his early teens. More recently, and as a result of the Covid 19 crisis, Bob's son Robert ("Rob") and his son Jake (the 4th generation to be involved) became involved with the running of the business, working with the excellent butcher team of Kevan, David, Dusty, Dave Two (!), Tony, Brian and Gordon, as a result of the Covid 19 crisis. The business has now transformed into a full delivery service covering all of North Devon and a "Click & Collect" service in Barnstaple. We are pleased that there has a been a return to retail and the website from June 2020 after a 2 months shut down. The website and click and collect and delivery both continue. All told Withecombes has been in business for 70 years and we are looking forward to another 70!
