As mentioned, 'Bethers' is a tad eccentric but by God are his sausages excellent!! I run a local pub and get the majority of my meat from him. I don't think I can recall a time when I have had any bad meat from him at all. Whenever anybody has my Bangers'n'Mash I am ALWAYS asked where I get my sausages (or 'swags' as he calls them) from. His award winning sausages vary in flavours and he is constantly searching for more exotic fillings for them. My advice to anybody in the South of England is to not worry about the cost of petrol and get into the shop, talk to John about which sausages and meats he recommends - it might take a while as you'll be asked everything from where your from to (probably) your shoe size. If only more butchers were as dedicated to their art and as delightfully quirky as John then we wouldn't need supermarket meat counters!
