For many of us, Easter is the perfect excuse to bring the family together, enjoy the coming of spring and gorge ourselves on plenty of chocolate and delicious meals.

An occasion worthy of the best quality meat, allowing you to support a local family-run business and impress all your loved ones.

If you’re still to get your Easter supplies in, why not pay Nicholsons Butchers in Whitley Bay a visit on Good Friday? If you’re organised early, you could use their local delivery option and shop online – we would recommend getting your order in fast, as stock will sell out (especially for lamb).

If you’re wanting to be the hostess with mostess this Easter but are not sure how to cook your chosen meat, or which cut is right for you, make sure to ask the friendly and knowledgeable team who are more than happy to provide some advice.



Always a good choice for entertaining and sourced from the best local farms, these hand-selected cuts of beef are sure to be tasty, especially as they have been in Nicholson’s dry ageing fridge for at least 21 days.

A traditional choice on many Easter tables that’s perfectly paired with a range of root veg, herbs and a mint sauce, lamb is always a top choice. This tender meat is always a winner with the whole family, whether you want to go for a traditional casserole or spice things up with a tandoori lamb shoulder.

Although we usually see a turkey on a more festive table in December, why can’t we have it at Easter too? For those of you who prefer poultry and want to really blow the socks off your guests, Nicholson’s has a Stuffed Turkey Breast, wrapped in bacon, with a choice of stuffing.

Stuffed Turkey Breast – £40.00
