We’re Thornton’s Bakehouse & Butchers, a Bakery and Butchers located in the busy market town of Easingwold, in the heart of rural North Yorkshire. We’re a third-generation family run business, owned by John Thornton, the son of Geoff from Thornton’s Butchers which used to sit in Easingwold marketplace. We specialise in handcrafted Pork Pies, Pastries and quality, local Meats.
Our Pies and Pastries are made by hand and baked daily in our Bakery in the centre of Easingwold.

We also offer a variety of Pasties, Sausage Rolls, Quiches and our ever popular rustic Scotch Eggs.

Provenance is at the heart of our Butchery today and has been since we began in 1960 at our old Butcher’s shop in Easingwold marketplace. Over the decades of having a Butchery we have developed strong relationships with local farmers and suppliers and we continue to be passionate about providing meat which has been born and bred in North Yorkshire.
Lamb is home reared by Geoff & Anne, John's Mum & Dad, on our family farm in Oldstead; high welfare Pork comes from Wilson's of Sproxton; Beef is Aberdeen Angus from Rooke's of Newton-on-Ouse; Chicken is from Soanes Poultry at Middleton-on-the-Wolds; Eggs are from Pollards of Thirkleby. We use these farmers wherever possible, if they are unable to supply we use other North Yorkshire farmers to fulfil our requirements.
Butchery has been in our family for generations and we care about our customers as much as we care about the welfare and provenance of the meat we sell. If you're looking for a particular cut or aren't sure what to use for a specific dish then please ask, we can use our knowledge of our trade to help make sure you get exactly what you're looking for.
Our meat is used in many local Pubs, Cafes and Restaurants and we're always looking for new places to supply! Please contact us on [email protected] or 01347 821 666 for more information.
