The term chateaubriand originally described a French method of cooking, but it now widely recognised as the name for a tapered cut from the head of the fillet, it’s renowned as the jewel amongst prime cuts of beef. This restaurant favourite is very soft and tender, with an almost buttery texture and delicate flavour. Perfect as a sharing steak or a roasting joint for smaller tables, this is an ideal cut for celebrations all year round. Sourced from grass fed, heritage breeds reared naturally at their own pace, this is a stand-out chateaubriand.
Unparalleled in reputation, the Aberdeen Angus is Britain’s favourite breed, but is equally revered in the steak cutting traditions of Argentina, the United States, and South Africa. Its popularity is a direct consequence of the marbling that evenly runs through the meat to give the beef its renowned rich and indulgent flavour. Due to its quality and popularity, we hang prime Angus beef the year round, always sourced from grass fed, free range herds.
