Scottish Family Butchers Since 1979
History & Family
John Lawson Butchers & Delicatessen was founded in 1979 by John & Linda Lawson. At Lawson's we have always maintained the philosophy of selling good quality local produce at fair prices. All our beef and lamb is farmed locally by John's brother Russell Lawson at Midseat farm Bathgate.
We have always been a family business. Now more so than ever, with John and Linda's three sons now fully involved in running of the business. John, Stuart and Graham have grown up around the business and its core principles of selling only the highest quality local produce has been taught to them from a very early age.
What we do
We specialise in well aged, award winning, grass fed scotch beef reared with flavour and taste in mind. All our beef is matured on the bone of 21 days to ensure maximum tenderness.
We stock specially selected scotch pork, poultry and game.
Using our local produce we produce an extensive range of manufactured products such as haggis, black pudding, sausages and burgers. All handmade using traditional recipes.
In addition to the butchery we stock a vast array of deli products, the majority of which are handmade on the premises by our trained chefs. These include our award winning pies, ready meals and pastry products.
We currently have three shops in Uphall, Broxburn and Winchburgh. Our first shop opened for business on the 5th of July 1979. Since then it has steadily grown and is a focal point in the village of Uphall in West Lothian, Scotland.
We have never stayed still in the past thirty one years, and now serve the surrounding area with many customers travelling from nearby Livingston and Edinburgh.
The Broxburn shop opened its doors in 1996 and the nearby Winchburgh shop opened in 1989.
