Lakings Opening Times

Are you ready for Christmas? It’s almost here – December 25th is now tantalisingly close.

Your free-range turkeys, gammons, roast beef joints, cold meats and pigs-in-blankets are out for delivery (or available for collection on Christmas Eve in our Louth shop), our festive hampers have been carefully packed and gift cards loaded up as presents for food lovers.

We will be busy making sure your Christmas orders are fulfilled both in-store and online before hanging up our aprons to enjoy the festivities with family and friends. An once Christmas is done, it’s on to thinking about the new year! We will be open between Christmas and December 31st, (see below for our festive opening times and delivery service availability) to help you stock up for your new year’s celebrations – whether that’s the perfect buffet or a splendid banquet.

For a show-stopping dinner, we recommend Rib-Eye Steak. Generously marbled, our traditionally matured steaks are bursting with the mellow flavour you’d expect from prime rib. Prices start from £8.17 per 227g steak. Or for a laid-back meal that’s a real people-pleaser – why not plump for a supper of classic Lincolnshire sausages, mash and gravy? Our 1kg packs include 12-14 sausages, £9.

If you’re worried about executing the perfect serve, you can find delicious recipe inspiration from our ambassador chef Rosie Dicker, including how to cook the perfect steak at home.

Oh, and don’t forget, we also sell all your favourite larder staples, too – from cheeses and pickles to cakes and biscuits.

During the holiday season (and beyond), rest assured you can confidently shop with us.

Here are just a few reasons why.

  • Our online ordering service will be available, backed by the trustworthy DPD delivery service.
  • We are passionate about our craft butchery, having honed our skills over the last 110 years.
  • We have worked with the same Lincolnshire farmers for decades, so we know our meat comes from heritage, native breeds reared in the county.
  • Fresh, British, and always ethically sourced, we are proud to work with farmers who champion provenance, accountability, and sustainability above all else.
  • Our 4.9-star rating on the review site TrustPilot is a glowing endorsement of the service we offer.

But ultimately, we are here to serve you – our customers – both old and new and we’d like to thank you for your continued support this year. In the words of John Lennon, ‘a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year’. We hope your bellies will be as full as your stockings!
