Whilst reading Theology in York she got a part time job in a butcher's shop. She then trained to be a butcher with George Payne in Gosforth, Stewart & Co. in Jesmond, O'Shea's of Knightsbridge and Lidgate's in Holland Park. Whilst working the Christmas madness in London in 2012, she discovered AE Hubb's for sale on Ashburton Road, Gosforth - and secured a loan designed for start-ups; she opened Charlotte's Butchery on 18th January 2013. She is still in awe that it happened so quickly. Five years on: she genuinely believes she is the luckiest woman alive; especially after a few gins.
Jamie is Charlotte's brother. He has an eye for retail and zillions of tip top ideas. He is a health and fitness enthusiast and really knows about nutrition and diet plans. Jamie has become a superb butcher and home cook. With a background working for Tesco and a degree in Politics he works incredibly hard and his passion for food is overwhelming.
The other chap who works here, often lurking in the background is Richard. Whilst being the King of Eccentricity he keeps the Mitchells on the straight and narrow. A hater of waste, he loves full carcass cooking and cutting. He is from Yorkshire - but you probably already knew that. His Grandma Min's salad for Roast Beef is legendary. With him being a philosophy graduate the back shop is never short of topical debate about meat, food and the universe.
