Traditional Cumbrian Butchers – Ulverston

Welcome to Irvings Butchers of Ulverston. We are a traditional butchers shop, and we have been trading from our current location for 39 years. Some of our staff have been with us since we opened!

Top-quality Cumbrian beef, lamb & pork

Locally Sourced Saltmarsh Lamb

Our saltmarsh lamb is locally sourced from the Duddon and Grange Estuaries.

All our beef is supplied locally by Steven and Sandra Garnett. Our speciality salt marsh lamb is locally sourced from the Duddon and Grange Estuary, our rare breed pork from farms in the surrounding area and all chicken from Cumbria.

We are dedicated to supplying top-quality meat, fully traceable and locally-sourced. As the modern marketplace has changed, we have evolved with it, but our core values have remained the same. We are happy to see a move away from cut-price outlets and continued demand for quality, as modern consumers demand environmentally-friendly produce, with low food miles and best-practice animal husbandry.

Belted Galloway beef is a customer favourite and all part of our supply from Steven and Sandra Garnett. Slow growing, unlike any supermarket beef, because we prioritise taste over a quick profit.

As well as fresh Cumbrian meat, we supply a range of cured meats, ready meals, fresh free-range eggs and other local produce

What our customers say:

“The thing I love about Irvings is their home-baked pies. They sell individual and plate pies. the former can be bought hot, but I prefer them cold. The best one has large chunks of ham and turkey. The pastry is good. They have a good selection of local meat, including the Herdwick lamb from the nearby Duke of Devonshire’s estate. Everything is very clean, they wear gloves and take them off to take the money! This is deservedly a very popular shop. It also has a cheese counter. Don’t expect many pies to be left in the afternoon. Local schoolchildren know this secret.” – Lorraine B. via Yelp
