Meat the team
Steve is passionate about locally sourced great quality seasonal food. Wonderful food paired with a great wine or ale should be savoured and enjoyed!
Before becoming the joint owner of Fylde Meats, Steve was a police officer. Starting his career in inner city west London in 1986 before transferring to Lancashire in 1998 where he completed his service, predominantly based, in Blackpool.
After retiring from the police Steve was keen to find his next working opportunity - He has always enjoyed and appreciated great food and wine and its why he was so excited to work with Simon and invest his money, time and energy into Fylde Meats!
His career as a police officer has certainly helped his move into running a small local retail business - the business will only survive and prosper if customers continue to use Fylde Meats on a regular basis - and that is all about building their trust and confidence in our products and service.

Simon “BEEFY” Long loves his meat. In particular cheaper cuts that are slow cooked and also has a good eye for particular assets and characteristics of great steak. Simon also runs local hog roasts and bbq’s and his knowledge of cooking meats is all important for clients who need assistance when they shop with us.

Tony, now in his 60’s has been a butcher for over 40 years. What he doesn’t know about meat isn’t worth knowing!
Having worked in abattoirs and butcher shops all over the North West, Tony's experience is paramount.
Part of the Fylde meats shopping experience includes listening to Tony’s renditions of Elvis/Leo Sayer and queen in the back whilst working away
