Indulge in all the flavours of spring as you celebrate this Easter. Choose from Lakings premium Lincolnshire beef, herb-fed chicken, locally farmed pork, and grass-fed lamb and you’re sure to produce an Easter feast to be proud of.

Always British, ethically sourced and sustainably produced, our butcher’s counter boasts the finest offerings from the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds.

As you start to plan in earnest for the long weekend over the Easter break from Friday, March 29-Monday, April, 1 – and the Easter holidays beyond that – let’s consider the options for creating a fabulous spread for family and friends to enjoy.

Easter roasts with Lakings

Easter Sunday is a chance to gather family and friends and relax over fabulous food and drinks (and plenty of chocolate). With minimal prep but maximum impact, a roast is often most people’s go-to choice over the celebratory weekend.

Stay with tradition and choose Lamb

The choice of many foodie traditionalists, the distinctive qualities of Lakings’ grass-fed lamb make it ideal for family gatherings. Our lamb is known for its balanced, robust flavour profile, with sustainability, traceability, and animal welfare at the forefront. For larger gatherings, choose a whole boned and rolled leg of lamb. Skilfully tunnel-boned by our award-winning butchery team, this offers incredible value for money. Weighing approximately 3kgs, suitable for home freezing too, you can even cut this in half to create two smaller joints.

Classic roast – plump for Lincoln Red Beef

Beef is always a people-pleaser and we have plenty of choice when it comes to the best cuts. Why not celebrate with an impressive and full-flavoured rib of beef, perfect for carving at the table? We also offer silverside, topside, sirloin and brisket – all suitable beef joints for roasting.

As an alternative to a roast, why not treat yourself to tender fillet steak or make a beautiful Beef Wellington with our melt-in-the-mouth Chateaubriand? Not sure which cut works best for you? Ask our team – either in-store or when browsing our website.

Delicious Herb Fed Chicken

Reared on a farm in Yorkshire under the highest welfare standards and fed on a diet that includes 10 varieties of fresh herbs, Lakings herb-fed chickens promise to deliver a flavoursome roast, perfect for a family gathering this Easter. Alternatively, we also offer grain-fed birds, sourced from a farm in Norfolk.

Please note, if ordering online, our chickens are only available for delivery on Thursday / Friday / Saturday.

Full flavoured Lincolnshire-raised Pork

Coming from a highly innovative and state-of-the-art Red Tractor farm in the Wolds, where welfare standards are rigorously upheld, you can trust in the quality of our pork.

When it comes to choosing a classic cut for your Easter roast, go for a boneless pork loin. This easy-to-carve pork roast is prepared using the traditional whole rib. It has a natural covering of fat on the outside, which provides the meat with full-flavour benefits.

Serve with Mrs Darlington’s apple sauce and sage and onion stuffing for a satisfying Easter dinner.

Elevate your Easter buffet or afternoon tea

Everyone enjoys picking at delectable bites from a buffet, or a beautifully presented afternoon tea. From cooked ham and pork pie with pickles, to the traditional delicacy of Lincolnshire Chine, choose from our wonderful pantry selection to create your spread. Try our freshly-made sausage rolls made on-site using our traditional Lincolnshire sausages wrapped in a delicate puff pastry, or add a quiche to your buffet. We offer two varieties – ham and tomato, or mushroom.

Finally, great in sandwiches or served sliced with pickles, it’s Lakings speciality Lincolnshire haslet that makes a tasty addition to any teatime meal.


Sshh, don’t jinx it but if the weather turns out fine, barbecuing might be an option this Easter and we have everything you need to throw the ultimate barbecue party. Check out our range of Lincolnshire sausages burgers, grillsticks and family barbecue packs. We can’t guarantee the sun will shine but we can promise the quality of our products.
