About us

We chose the name ‘The Butchers Block’ in honour of owner and manager Simon.

For over three decades he was a highly skilled butcher in nearby Bearsted before moving to Burham to open The Butchers Block with his wife Joanna. Simon and Joanna, along with their children and not forgetting their four legged friend Butch, look forward to welcoming you soon.

The Butchers Block offers freshly cooked delicious food made from fresh quality ingredients. We use locally sourced meat, butchered on site (of course!) so that it can be as fresh as we can make it, from the kitchen straight onto your plate. In the bar, we serve wine, including some locally produced, ales, beers, and the odd G&T available too.
