Vicars Game

WILLIAM VICARS AND SON WAS ESTABLISHED IN WEST STREET, READING IN 1886 AND TRADED IN THE SAME FAMILY FOR THREE GENERATIONS AS PURVEYORS OF ENGLISH MEAT AND GAME.

About Us

Most of our Game is very local to the Newbury area. We are fortunate to be situated in the centre of an area which is very prolific in wild game.

There are many large estates and farms within the surrounding 30 miles, all of which have to control and manage the animals that are intent on eating their crops. So, as well as the 100,000 Pheasants and Partridge we get from sporting estates, we also have Rabbit, Hare, Roe deer, Fallow deer and Muntjac. We have to travel a bit further afield for Red and Sika deer, since they are not common in this part of the country.

We've supplied farm shops, restaurants, butchers and other outlets for over 100 years. Casey Fields is the farm shop at Vicars Game in Ashampstead.  Recently expanded and offers all manner of fantastic products, from wild local game to freshly made pies, local beef, pork and lamb and cheese and fish: we have a huge range of high quality produce waiting for you!

We hold large stocks of beef, pork, lamb, poultry, game, bacon and sausages and with our vans in Smithfield Market every night, we have access to a vast range of extras including deli meats and cheeses. All of our sausages are made on site, hand linked and use only the finest quality meat. We produce over 50 different flavours and regularly make over 2 tons a day. Our bacon is dry cured on site and is quite simply, the best. Our black & white puddings are all home made to a our own recipe. We also have a smoke house where we cure our own wild boar and venison fillets to produce a wonderful sliced, ready to eat delicacy
