  3. Sound, let us know if they're still there! I tended to go early, about 7am and even then it was running low due the restaurants hoovering all the good stuff up. Have a walk round inside too, loads to f places tucked away that specialise in different meat.
  4. nice one @Tabs ill have a look, i work in the yard behind there
  5. No it's in the abattoir building itself. If you stand at the front, with wescotts to your left, it's the entrance to the left of the main central tower. As you walk in the door it was one of the first places on the right. That said I've not been for a couple of years and with all the recent Covid stuff I'm not sure if they're still there.
  6. Glad to help. The ribs supplier is on the left side of the abattoir as you look from the front. Just follow the noise. Not sure of it's still open at the moment but when it is I usually head down there early before work, about 7am even then they're starting to pack up!
  7. Excellent, never been in the abattoir before only into Wescotts. Bookers is only 2 mins from me as well
  8. Hi kev, I've used a few places in Liverpool. Experiences so far... Abattoir on Prescot Road - not the butchers outside head in to the main abbatoir building itself. This is where most of the Chinese restaurants get their ribs from. Come Frozen and they sell both Spare and baby back. Prices have gone up recently due to the pork shortages in China. I've also picked up entire pork shoulders (had to butcher it myself) for about £20. You'll have to navigate the walkways to find each seller as some are down seemingly dead ends. They're all approachable so don't be shy! Bookers wholesale - again good for ribs, boxes of cherry valley baby backs are about £40 and contain 12-13 racks. They also have a butcher in store and can source some larger things. I tend to get bone in belly pork here too. Separate the ribs and you get a nice rack and pork belly! Bexleys butchers - the branch in Old Swan, ask to speak to Ian he can source most cuts with 3-4 days notice. I've ordered Jacobs ladder beef short ribs about £13 per rack. They supply Simon Rimmer's restaurants. There's a place in Gateacre, name escapes me but it's just down from the bear and staff pub. I've not tried it but it comes recommend. This is the pork shoulder I picked up from the abattoir. £23 iirc.
  9. Can anyone recommend a good supplier around Liverpool for meat. Although there’s online suppliers I’d rather my money went local if possible
