Patrick Strainge Butchers in Bampton, a favourite with the cast and crew of Downton Abbey which is filmed in the village, has picked up four golds in the Smithfield industry awards.

Manager Ollie Weaver picked up the awards, which celebrate ‘craft butchery’, during a ceremony at Stationers Hall earlier this month.

The prize-winning cuts were old traditional sausage, spiced plum sausage, smoked back bacon and unsmoked back bacon.

The team also won silver for their ‘Bampton Royals’ sausages and pork and chicken pie.
