There's a lot to say

Over our many years of operating, we’ve collected countless delighted testimonials from esteemed clients pleased with our service. Below are a few.

"Dear Martin and Mark,

I just wanted to drop you and all the team at Dingley Dell and Direct Meats a note at this truly unprecedented time to say a huge thank you for all of your help and support in maintaining the supply chain, which is allowing COOK to continue making our meals and deliver them to our customers, many of whom are in vulnerable groups or self-isolating, so our meals are genuine lifelines during the challenges we are all facing.

The demand for our food has increased significantly in recent weeks and this has led to huge uplifts in the meat we buy from you, and your regular communications and general responses to such increases have been exceptional and all of us here at COOK are extremely grateful.

In these uncertain times relationships really do play a vital part in how we interact with each other and it is such a pleasure to be tackling these challenges together, as I know we will be able to overcome obstacles together. If we can help you in anyway, please do let me know.

Please take care of yourselves and your families and I am really looking forward to catching up with you both once this is all over.

Thanks again for everything.


Mark Dennis Chief Operating Officer

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for your generosity, for supporting us by providing the produce for our annual Christmas lunch for the Chelsea Pensioners. This occasion is close to our hearts at the restaurant and very important to all of us, so your help in making it such a success is greatly appreciated.

We look forward to continuing to work with you in 2020, as we cannot achieve what we do without your support."

"Had to drop you a line after my recent visit to Direct Meats to work with your current apprentices on their Theory and practical work. It was so refreshing to see their progression both on the course and within the company. It is amazing to see that a former apprentice and on who is now at the end of his programme now running the Pork cutting room with both such professionalism and enthusiasm.

This is a testament to all at Direct Meats who help drive forward the apprenticeship programme.

Wishing you continued success, Kind Regards.”​

"I have been using Direct Meats for over three years now and have found them to be thoroughly professional, affordable and 100% reliable, the products that they supply are always of the highest quality.

As part of our partnership, myself and my senior chefs all recently visited their HQ which just underlined for us what a professional outfit they are as well as visiting a local farm that supplies Direct Meats, a local abattoir and of course with lunch and drinks thrown in for good measure.

I would not hesitate in recommending Direct Meats as one of your suppliers."

Alan Southwell Head Chef | Tuttons

"Just wanted to say that the new Wiltshire cured beer & treacle Gammon steak is proving to be a customer favourite at The George IV. Please keep us informed about any more appropriate innovations and new products suitable for our fresh food pub menu.

Thanks and regards"
