serving only the the finest quality

Our Story

C Dawson & Sons was established in Brayton in 1960 by Clifford Dawson and traded as a high-class butcher with its own abattoir.


Our current premises and business were developed by William and Charles Dawson.


Now in its third generation of Dawson’s Phillip and John maintain its reputation for high quality produce.

Quality meat is our passion. We focus our attention on sourcing the finest whole carcass meat from a range of high class Yorkshire abattoirs. All our beef is born, raised and slaughtered in Yorkshire. We mature the majority of our beef for at least 4 weeks and spend a lot of time ensuring our Pork and Lamb is butchered to provide the best eating joints possible. For over 60 years, we have developed a reputation for our excellent home cured bacon, a range of sausages and high quality meats.

For over 40 years we have perfected and produced a range of pies, pasties and pastries. Sticking to the same family recipes, we continue to bake high quality pies with top quality fillings. All pies and pastries are made from scratch on the premises and baked daily.

Using high quality ingredients and locally milled flour, we bake a wide selection of fresh breads and cakes daily. Our bread cakes make the perfect partner for our wide range of cooked meats to produce a selection of mouth-watering sandwiches.
