A passion for high quality, locally sourced food and great service to our customers.

No award is as important as providing excellent service and top quality, locally sourced food. However, it’s inevitable that with such high standards, Johnny has picked up a few along the way…

Describing our air dried Hungarian Kolbasz, Gary said… Sensational flavour from those meats, texture like I have not experienced before. (Local Food Hero 2007)

Johnny the butcher is an amazing guy. (Local Food Hero 2009)

Matthew Fort - The Guardian >

Johnny Pusztai is a ham-curing, bacon-smoking, sausage-making force of nature. JT Beedham & Sons' window is a landscape of meat: cliff faces of beef, hills of pork, rivers of sausages, ranges of lamb, glistening pools of kidneys.


Matt Tebbutt - Co-host of Market Kitchen on the Good Food Network >

Johnny is a highly skilled butcher of the old guard. His knowledge and passion for his subject is unsurpassed. When you meet him, you can't help but be caught up with his enthusiasm for butchery. Couple this with the butchery skills that result from his Hungarian heritage and you have a truly award-winning combination. He is most definitely a Food Hero, with the sort of skills that are badly needed on the British high-street.

Listen to him talk about something like the Nottinghamshire sausage and you quickly get the idea that, for Johnny, television appearances are nice, but the biggest part of the job is still what happens behind the counter in Sherwood. He didn't get to be butcher for Nottingham's only Michelin-starred chef, Sat Bains, by going on television.


Natascia Zezza - Membership Co-ordinator, Experience Nottingham >

Thank you for providing the catering for our networking event. As always the quality and variety of the food was excellent. The service provided by your team outstanding.

Jackie Hart - Projects Manager, Paul Smith Ltd >

Thank you for the wonderful job you did at the Paul Smith Summer Party. Not only was the food absolutely fantastic, but the catering and bar staff were professional and fun. The attention to detail was spot on.

I also want to thank you for all the extra help and advice you gave me regarding the whole event which was invaluable. You will no doubt be hearing from us in the future and I would not hesitate in recommending you on to others.

Observer Food Monthly Awards >

Johnny is proud to be awarded 'Producer of the year 2011' at the Observer Food Monthly Awards.
