There is a superb butcher in Crimscott St, just down Grange Road
on the right. It is called Ashby's, and it is their processing place for their smart butcher's shop in Leadenhall mart. It's open from about 3am until about 3pm, and their meat is excellent - they hang it all themselves, so you don't get the revolting tasteless beef you get from Tesco.
There's no 'butcher's window', and they're not cheap, but they have pretty much everything in stock for you if you ask, and they're not outrageously expensive.
