In 1906 Herbert Dale opened a simple, traditional butchers supplying quality meat to the locals of Kirkby Lonsdale.

Herbert then passed the business on to his son Wilfred and the family tradition of supplying the finest locally farmed meats continued. As the market town of Kirkby Lonsdale grew over the next century so did ‘Dales the Butchers’. Since Mark took over in 1999 Dales has blossomed into one of the North Wests most popular family butchers. As well as our unrivalled range of quality meats and poultry we also supply a mouth watering array of award winning pies, sausages, puddings, cheeses and vegetables to the locals and the tourists who return time and time again.
