I've never used Doves but I was amused to read this on their website;
"(Doves) aim is to provide a service that is friendly, informative and built on a relationship with the customer. We chat (alot) and like to make our customers feel part of the business, encouraging them to ask about cuts, recipes and tips on cooking, giving advice and generally explain the importance of great meat. We buy from respected long-term suppliers and together we try to provide a butchers shop you can trust. "
...and compare this with some of the shocking experiences above...
After three generations of service I'm saddened that the owners felt the need to do a last-minute trashing of their customers and the people who now live in the area.
An unnecessary sour and bitter note to leave behind as a final testimony that curdles the memory of their good service.
