A joint for 4 people. A bone-in rib of beef is the king as far as we are concerned. The meat stays on the bone, typically cooked from room temperature in a hot oven. Success is a lovely charring on the golden fat with the meat cooking to pink perfection. A real treat for the taste buds and we can't think of any other joint that has all of these qualities.
Approx. weight 1.5kg or 2.2kg or 3.0kg. Suitable for 4, 6 or 8 people.

"What a treat..my favourite beef joint. Absolute perfection.. Really good depth of flavour the joint was beautifully marbled with fat and very very tender I cooked to Medium/well." - Annie Featherstone
Excellent service very friendly, and of course the rib of beef was gorgeous, not tried the chops yet
Rib of Beef for a change instead of the traditional Turkey, great piece of beef, east to order and delivered 5*
Lovely joint of beef, very tender and tasty. Always assured of good quality at Withecombes!
Every thing was so easy, ordering, picking the order up and the online advice. Very pleased!!
On collection realised I was not getting a rib of beef but was told it was a rolled rib due to supply issues. However when unpacked prior to cooking we realised that there was no marbling in the meat, therefore conclude that this was not rib of beef but more likely to be topside. As this was for a special occasion it was doubly disappointing.
We appreciate that in these times supply issues can occur but would question why we were not consulted before order fulfilled.
