H. E. Coward has evolved from five generations of butchers to become what it is today.

Robert Coward has worked in the business from 1961 and became a partner in 1966 after leaving school. Over the last 50yrs Rob has advanced the business, changing with the times, yet always maintaining traditional practices and a passion for the finest quality produce. He is still at the forefront of H.E. Coward and although not practising butchery always keeps a watchful eye on the product and service.

Sue Coward started at Coward's butchers in 1973 as a young shop assistant and ended up marrying the boss!
The idea behind Sue Coward’s Homemade Pies came to her one night, she turned to Rob and said ‘You know, I think I could make a few homemade pies!’ now with a weekly production 12,000 strong, and still using the same homemade techniques, it’s safe to say she can make more than a few!

Rob and Sue now continue to run the business with the next generation, their daughters Elly and Vicki
