Martlemass Beef; Moreish & Mesmerising

Martlemass Beef; Moreish & Mesmerising


This dry-cured Heritage-Breed Beef Silverside is named for St. Martin's Day, where medieval British farmers would celebrate the gathering-in of the harvest and the preparation of goods for winter.

Traditionally, feast dishes on this day were heavily spiced with cinnamon and mace, and a whole cow would be butchered and salted for use throughout the colder months of the year.

We follow that recipe fairly closely, but since St. Martin also happens to be the patron saint of Vintners and Innkeepers, we tip a few bottles of a seasonal fruit Sour from Kernel Brewery into the mix as well. So, now, you cannot pronounce Martlemass without the mmmmmm.


Sliced Packs (120g), once open, are best eaten within 7 days, but left sealed will happily await your pleasure for 4 weeks.

Whole Muscles are sold by the half, unsliced, (as pictured)and weigh approximately 400g. These have an unopened best before of 3 months, and will usually happily last 2 weeks+ once you've opened it and begun snacking. 

Depending on the time of year, the added Saison is either Damson or Sour Cherry.

High Welfare Heritage Breed Beef Silverside, soaked in Beer, Cornish Sea Salt, Demerara Sugar, Ginger (dried), Nutmeg, Mace, Black Peppercorns, Curing Salt (Sodium Nitrite, Nitrate). 

Does not contain PORK of any kind - however, it is processed in a facility that deals with both. Contains Gluten, from the beer.

Delicious, rich and complex.

Delicious, rich and complex. Now a family party staple!

Great service, like the company.

But this meat did not taste of much, sorry. I’ll be back for other products, but this just tasted bland and metallic. I wasn’t going to leave a review, but as you requested it….
I see others rave about it, so maybe it’s me.

Ah no!! We hate to hear that people haven't enjoyed (even though it sounds as though you like us in general ) - We'll be in touch separately to see if there is perhaps a reason why the beef didn't taste as good as usual for you. Maybe we can fix that in future for you!

Meanwhile, thanks for giving us the opportunity to solve it - We can't ever help if people don't let us know. ❤️

Highly recommended

Most delectable addiction :)

Ordered the Martlemass cured beef as a treat. OMG. It’s not just a treat it’s a whole experience that makes you feel like the most special customer in the world. From the carefully chosen and hand tied packaging to the beef itself, everything was perfect.
No risk of style over substance either- it tastes incredible, it slices beautifully and a little goes a long way so you can treat yourself again and again.
Perfect to share with friends over a glass of wine for aperitif.

Beware, you’ll get addicted all the same!
