One of our top 10 producers. They are admired by the Scotsman and Clarissa Dickson Wright. They are third generation butchers offering a range of nearly 50 varieties plus black (and white) pudding, haggis and Lorne sausage.
Prices range from ?5.40 to ?8.60 per kg. Most have a meat content of 75% plus. Unusual varieties include Wild Boar, Port & Stilton, an Italian Luganiga made with parmesan and wine and a proper French Country. British regional sausages are also offered and being Scottish they make a number of beef sausages. English customers may notice that a number of the sausages from Crombie?s have a fine cut texture ? this is the typical Scottish style.
They offer a selection box for ?27. This includes delivery and your choice of 2.5 kg of up to 5 varieties. They have a web site but it is necessary to obtain a catalogue and order by post or phone.
Glad somewhere now to give praise.
Simply excellent produce made even better by the friendly staff. Just get there early in the day as the very best soon goes! Recommend to anyone!

I regularly do a 60 mile round trip to pick up supplies at Crombies, it is the best butchers in the country.
Excellent shop, love the produce, shope there regularly, but Crombies need to update online facilities. Web access and ordering surely a must these days.
I was introduced to Crombies by a friend a few years ago and have been going ever since. The quality, flavour and choice is unbeatable. They are undeniably the best sausages I''ve ever tasted, and I will never eat a supermarket sausage again!
This is a great site for us sausage fans. When I am in the UK I always stock up at Crombies. These sausages are also popular in Holland!
I have just had an early dinner on my wives birthday with a haggis from Crombies. This has hit the mark with a dish that came up to all my expectations: rich, spicey and delicious along with a nice malt whisky.
It's not just about the sausages. A visit to Crombies is like being transported back in time, when we were more in-tune with nature and how our food is produced. The shop is a sensory overload and the service is delivered by butchers who care about food. Do yourself a favour, visit!!
