We are now pleased to be under the ownership of the Wescott family, and trading as Withecombe Butchers. "Withecombes Butchers" was opened by Cyril Withecombe in the early 1950s 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) became involved with the running of the business, working with the excellent butcher team of Kevan (manager), David, Dusty, Dave Two (!), Gordon, Gary, Dorothy and Rob C, 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. And of course, we are still a very busy traditional walk in butcher's shop!
All told Withecombes has been in business for 70 years and we are looking forward to another 70!
