Simon the Butcher

Meet your Fire Pit compere for 2024, Simon the Butcher!

Simon’s passion for the butchery industry started at the age of thirteen when he took his first job in a traditional high street butchers shop. It was from there that Simon’s love from the industry began to grow and 28 years on he is now the successful owner of Surrey Hills Butchers. Simon has been very fortunate to have worked with some amazing people within the industry through social media and TV, as well as appearing at some of the UK’s top food festivals.

Having worked in butchers most of his life, Simon understands the importance of keeping the traditional skills alive and aims to train and educate as many butchers as he can during his career. This has led him to Captain Team GB in the World Butchers Challenge requiring Simon to create and develop innovating dishes that can compete on the world stage.

Simon is truly a passionate advocate for the butchery industry and aims to inspire the future generation so that we can revive the trade and keep highlighting the importance of the craft.
