About Us

Tomkins of Radcliffe on Trent¬†was founded by Robert Tomkins, known as Rob to customers and those close to him. Rob was born and raised in Nottingham by his parents, Patricia and Clive. Clive Tomkins was a butcher himself, with his own shop on Sherwood Road in Nottingham, this is where Rob began to learn his trade at just fourteen years of age, first learning how to “scrub the block” before being allowed on the tools!

Over the past forty plus years, Rob has built on his butchery experience as head butcher and some of the best shops and farm shops across the East Midlands area. In 2014, Rob decided that it was time to carry on in his fathers footsteps and open a shop of his own which found him in Radcliffe on Trent, where he also moved his own residence to the local area.

Traditional values coupled with modern butchery techniques is how Rob has approached everything he does with Tomkins of Radcliffe butchers. Offering a wide selection of locally sourced meats, cheeses and condiments as well as prepared meals and weekly specials, customers of Radcliffe on Trent are always greeted with a warm smile and a knowledgeable team always wanting to help. We look forward to seeing you soon and welcoming you to our shop.
