About us

Founded in 1971, Roger Steward Butchers started in Addington Road, Reading, where a busy butchers shop run by brothers Roger and Philip, served local customers and market lorries provided customers across the south of England with high quality meat at great prices.

Trading at Bracknell Market since the late 1960’s developed a loyal customer base with great value meat and a huge variety not available in the supermarkets.

After purchasing the Berkshire Meat Company and moving to the Reading Cold Store in Tilehurst in 1986, the business continued to expand, serving wholesale customers, catering butchers, restaurants and the public. Market lorries went out every day to locations such as Blackbushe, Newbury, Oxford, Carterton, Bristol and Harlow.

In 1999, Roger Steward Butchers and Berkshire Meat Company formed to create Berkshire Meat Traders, continuing to serve high quality meat to customers in a thriving wholesale business and also to locals who wanted something for the Sunday roast.

Christmas 2009 saw the launch of the ecommerce website for meat delivery across the UK. Originally called Meatpacks, it re-branded in 2015 to Hook’N’Block, with a new website, packaging and extensive range of meat available.

If you want to send meat to anywhere in mainland UK, visit our other website Hook’N’Block.

Now employing over 30 staff, the family business run by Philip Steward, Jonathan Steward and David Powell, continues to serve meat to wholesale customers, expanding across the country. The opening of our shop counters in 2018 means we can now offer our great service and prices to our local customers on a daily basis.
