Traditional butchers in Beckenham.
They specialise in sausages, with dozens of varieties available. Examples as of January 2014 include Toulouse-style sausages made with coarsely-ground pork and garlic; pork sausages with chestnut, honey, and mustard; and lamb and duck sausages.
They also do vegetarian sausages and burgers, though these are usually only available frozen. As of January 2015 these included spinach and cheddar, red leicester and spring onion, and Moroccan (involving couscous and spices).
They're very aware of allergies; none of their meat-based sausages contain milk, many of them are gluten-free, and they have allergy information on a poster on the wall.
They also offer knife-sharpening services, which Kake takes advantage of a couple of times a year. In January 2014 I was charged £6 for sharpening of four knives, while in February 2020 I was charged £7. They offer free resharpening if you're not satisfied with the result, and they can usually complete the job within a few hours (the longest I've left them is three hours).
