St George's Fine Foods supplies meat marinades to a number of butchers and restaurants. Some of them have now announced that they will no longer do business with them.
Please note that we boycott #AdamCatzavelos, we currently have no steak sauces available in our branches. Come enjoy a peppery crust or salted and peppery cut while finding a new supplier that reflects our values

We are aware of the #AdamCatzavelos video. The Baron Group has a zero tolerance policy with regard to racism and serves our steaks without spoiling while we find another supplier.

We have noticed that a person at St. Georges Fine Foods – a supplier who supplies us with sauces – has shown hatred language and racism, which we do not approve of. We no longer use services or products supplied by St. Georges Fine Foods.
