Supporting local charities – Leamington Winter Support

Social and corporate responsibility documents can be dusty old documents that people draft to tick boxes; or they can be, as we believe they should be, guidelines for good business practice and a way of life that your team understand as well as your own values.

Every week we supply dinners for Leamington Winter Support Shelter prepared by Andy, our chef, using the best ingredients to provide great nutritional meals; being homeless doesn’t mean being at the bottom of the pile and we should all be humbled by the stories and the all too true fact that most people are only 3 payslips away from the streets.

We love to get involved in charitable events and usually select 3 local charities in the year to support. We select volunteer-only based charities who make such a difference and are run in our local area. In addition we support several Christmas charities by providing food for Christmas day for the homeless, lonely or elderly. It makes sense for us to provide practical help where we can, putting our lovely products and staff skills to good use.

In addition we have weekly requests for raffle prizes or support and we always help where we are able to. We couldn’t do any of this without the support of our great teams who happily get involved and have volunteered at events as well.

Butcher owned steakhouse and bistro named Best Restaurant!

Oscar’s, in Chandos Street Leamington Spa, won the coveted award at the Coventry and Warwickshire Tourism and Culture Awards sponsored by Touch FM and held at Coombe Abbey on Thursday 21stSeptember.

Oscar’s has been owned and operated by local family business Aubrey Allen for over 15 years and the team are thrilled with the award. Russell Allen, Managing Director said “We are so pleased that Oscar’s has gained this recognition from the independent judges . As an independent restaurant you are always having to make sure you do something different from the large chains and remain attractive to both loyal and new clients. We have a strong focus on wonderful dry aged steaks but we are also popular for fish and our Tuesday night fixed price menu .”

Sarah Russell who organises Retail Marketing said “ We are making sure we celebrate with our loyalty clients and they will receive a free glass of French Fizz when they show their card when they dine with us in the next 2 weeks . We also have some special menus coming up to celebrate such as the Beef Celebration night and ever popular annual Bordeaux evening . Pascal and Martyn, our front of house and chef, are so happy as well”.
