The Cottage Butcher is an established, family-run butcher shop, well known in cottage country since 2006. It was the creation of two brothers who have a love of food that is unrivalled! They started out with a dream of owning their own fine food retail store and thought Bala was the place to be.
The Cottage Butcher was originally a Bed & Breakfast, with a kitchen and dining hall on the main floor. Over the course of a year, the brothers transformed it, renovating the first floor to what it is today: retail in the front, catering kitchen in the back.
Since the opening, it has truly been a labour of love, especially having their children grow up and come to work the summers at the store.
We are so proud to serve the community. It has always been our passion to share our love of great food with others. We’d love for you to think of The Cottage Butcher as your second kitchen. We’re always ready to serve you and offer helpful cooking tips to make sure your experience with us keeps you coming back!
