Our Products

We offer a wide range of high quality meats, as well as baked goods inluding pies and quiches.


Coates Butchers has been faithfully serving our customers across Durham for over 55 years with the finest selection of locally sourced meats and produce from the North East. We are committed to providing the same traditional recipes and flavours that made Coates Butchers synonymous with exceptional quality and taste. It isn't just our butchery that remains true to its roots - our on-site bakery still produces Coates's famous pies that have won multiple national and international awards over the years. We take pride in our quality, and are Durham's only members of the Butchers Q Guild, which represents the UK's most elite butchers. We strive to provide consistently excellent service at Coates Butchers, and are proud to hold a 5-star rating by Durham County Council in the Scores on the Doors scheme. We are also proud of our A-grade standard for quality, service, and hygiene that we have received from every independent audit we have been involved in.
