The O&C AW21 Photoshoot

We were blessed with dry weather for our Autumn/Winter photoshoot on Tuesday. We were also blessed with being able to use the wonderful Pumphouse thanks to Britten Pears Arts. The venue has sadly been left empty throughout the pandemic so it was lovely to give it a purpose, if only for a day. We hope it won’t be long before it can open it’s doors to the public once again. The Pumphouse sits right on the edge of the Aldeburgh Marshes which made for the perfect backdrop despite being rather... Read More

Roxy Rambles: Covehithe

About the Walk Distance: 4 km (roughly, according to Strava) Time taken: 1 hr Time of year walked: end of August This is a short, circular walk which starts and finishes in the little village of Covehithe and takes you through the Benacre National Nature Reserve and along the rapidly eroding shoreline.

It’s great to have our first order of Rino & Pelle in store. The outerwear brand is really stylish and feels so luxurious, the faux fur coats have already been selling in Aldeburgh despite the heatwave!

And just look at this stunning blue below! SHOP RINO & PELLE at O&C BUTCHER >

Our Summer Party

It’s been a tough 18 months and we really wanted to give our staff the chance to let their hair down with a bit of a summer party to say thanks for all their hard work. So we headed down to Fisher’s Gin Distillery for an evening of gin tasting, tea making and delicious food. The distillery is in the most beautiful spot next to the Brudenell Hotel and commands wonderful views out to sea. If you haven’t been for a tasting tour yet, we thoroughly recommend it: fishersgin.com It... Read More
