Who we are

Salcombe’s traditional butcher since 1981

P. W. & J. Coleman’s first opened its doors in 1981 and has been part of the fabric of Salcombe’s historic high street ever since.

Owner Paul and son Matthew pride themselves on offering an experience which combines a friendly and knowledgeable service with the highest quality meats from farms across Devon and Cornwall.

The Colemans are continuing a long tradition of butchery in the family, dating back to the 1800s. Paul, who began working in his local butcher shop in Birmingham aged 15, followed his father, grandfather and great-grandfather into the trade. A decade ago his son Matthew became the fifth generation of butcher in the family.

This pedigree means P. W. & J. Coleman’s is second-to-none when it comes to knowledge of its products and standard of service. 


We are proud to serve only the best seasonal produce, carefully sourced from the best farms in the region and butchered on-site by our skilled team.

From grass-fed, outdoor-reared beef, lamb, pork, poultry and game, to our range of signature Salcombe sausages, we offer something for all tastes no matter the time of year. 

Our selection of famous pork sausages – including Pork, Garlic & Herb, Pork & Leek, Country Pork, Spiced Pork using chillis from the local South Devon Chilli Farm and Boerworst, made using a traditional South African recipe – are made fresh daily on the premises and have been a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike for many years.

During the summer months we cater for all your BBQ needs, with homemade burgers, kebabs and steaks. That’s not to mention the delicious, fresh steak pasties and pies direct from our supplier in Plymouth.

Meanwhile our deli counter offers a huge range of tempting deli products including a wide array of the finest local farmhouse cheeses such as Sharpham Brie from the nearly Sharpham Estate in Totnes, Devon Blue, Devon Curworthy and Cornish Yarg, as well as delicious olives, pâté and cured meats.  

Away from the shop, we are extremely proud to also supply many local pubs and eateries with products ranging from our signature sausages to salt beef, brine-cured on the premises here at P. W. & J. Coleman. 
Bespoke orders can be made on request – just give our team a call on 01548 842809 and we will help in any way we can.
