Geoff and Paula Riley

Rileys butchers has a history that stretches back more than 150 years, always with one focus, continuing the art of traditional butchery. Everything sold at Riley’s, is locally sourced, from farm to fork. Here at Rileys we make our award winning products by hand in store, ranging from pies and sausage rolls to ready meals. We only use specially selected local suppliers who share our passion to ensure only the finest quality products make it to your table. So you can be assured that, from our prize-winning sausages to our matured beef, we know exactly where our meat comes from.

Geoff has been awarded many prestigious Smithfield Awards in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, for every product category entered. We were also named in the top three butchers shops in the North and England in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 - winning the best butchers shop in the north in 2012. Locally we have won awards for the best retail category of the Rossendale Business of the Year awards in 2010 and 2013 and best small business in 2013.
