Flanagan Butchers has recently been purchased by David Mitchell, a Master Butcher from Crawley, who also has another Multi Award Winning shop in Godalming, Surrey. Flanagans has been in Crawley Down for over 27 years and enjoys a bustling trade. Their reputation has gained them a very loyal customer base, both locally within the village and further afield. After over 35 years in the trade, David is still very passionate, with an interest in animal husbandry and keeps in close contact with local farmers to ensure continuity of exceptional quality. Flanagans employs 9 members of loyal and knowledgeable staff, many of whom have over 20 years experience in butchery, so needless to say customer service is second to none. Customers recently nominated them for the Sussex Food and Drink Awards, a runners up position was secured, which is a huge achievement and reflects the efforts and dedication of staff and incredible support from regulars. David strives to maintain high standards and is keen to remain innovative with many new product ideas, healthy eating options and ready meals.
We shop here because we don't like the meat sold in supermarkets. We have travelled 10 miles to get here - we heard about this butcher's shop so we thought we'd try it. I like the service, it's good quality meat and it's quite tender - we especially like the ham and the sirloin. We probably come here once a month and we like to give the business to the independent butcher rather that the supermarkets. Mr and Mrs Sutton of Crawley It's a nice shop.
The quality is great - the service especially and, of course, the meat. We come here mainly at the weekends to stock up. We mostly buy legs of lamb and steak. Mr and Mrs Palmer, Crawley Down.
I prefer buying meat here than in the supermarkets - the meat is consistent and I know what I am getting at the end of the day. I suppose I am also of a generation more used to buying meat from a butcher's shop. There are some supermarkets that I will buy meat from but I come here once a week. I like the barbecue range.

This is only the second time we have purchased products from your establishment and the quality of our purchase is of the highest standard. Having been into your establishment only twice your meat etc looked of the highest quality, with staff service to match. We cannot praise your products or service enough. My wife normally purchases meat from high class establishments anywhere in the country but yours matches them any day of the week. Well done and as they said in the film, I will return. Thank you. Mr A.P. G. (Crawley)
