Location Map (How to use this)
Located near the heart of Spitafield market in Central London, Simply Sausages is a mecca for city workers. The shop is run by Martin Heap (who created the Co-op Smithfield Sausages which we rate highly in Supermarkets & Brands). They also supply sausages to the Sausages & Mash chain of cafes which are springing up in London.
They make more than 20 varieties representing the British regional sausages, Italian, Toulouse, Merguez and exotics such as Wild Boar with Apples & Calvados and Creole Smoky made with peppers and hickory smoke.
Most have a meat content of 70 - 90%. They also offer a range of vegetarian sausages. They have a web site but this does not offer on-line ordering. The shop is open throughout the week and on Saturday morning.
An excellent range to tempt most. That said I found many of the sausages to be over complicated in flavour, and the Toulouse are very strong. However the London Breakfast(?)sausage was meaty and well balanced. The Boerwors is excellent.

Took back sausages to feed my German friends. They loved them especially the Thai and the English breakfast sausage. mmmmmmmmmmm

As a sausage connoisseur, I must say the Simply Sausages Smithfield Cracked Black Pepper sausage is one of the best I have ever tasted!! Quite by accident I found them in my small local Co-op, who sadly have recently stopped stocking them, despite my enquiries as to when they will appear on the shelves again. As a result I find myself calling in at other larger Co-op food outlets as I pass them, just to clear the shelves of the infamous Smithfield Sausage.
Absolutely wonderful, well done Simply Sausages and Co-op for stocking such a superb sausage. Co-op though, don?t forget your local stores!
Sausagelinks - we totally agree, see our review, of supermarket plain pork sausages.

A Sausage Original - still miss the Berwick Street branch. Smithfield is a tricky trip during the week BUT...always a great selection, always friendly, with a wide variety of meat used. A must-do for all London sausage shopping.
The vegetarian sausages are the best veggie sausages I have ever had. I eat them regularly and have done for years!
This is a message for the Veggie hippy above. This is a meat site. Go and get your own site!

As a vegetarian I have to say that these vegetarian sausages are the only ones that I will buy. They have a really good range and they taste fantastic.
In response to the above message:
Me and my friends regularly eat in Giraffe. The veggie and meat sausages are so nice I asked them where they come from...Simply Sausages was the answer. So if you cant make it to Simply Sausages you can taste them in a Giraffe restaurant near you.
We used to buy your products when we lived in Docklands. Is there any way we can get them shipped to us here in Spain? Local sausages are OK but there''s NOTHING like the Berwick Street Banger! .... which we rate below
