About the cut

Venison Saddle Rolled

The saddle is cut from the middle of the beast, from either side of the back bone. This yields some of the richest meat of the animal, and requires skill to cut neatly away from the bone, before trimming the meat, and neatly rolling for a spectacular easy carve roasting joint.

Tasting notes:

It's good to enjoy venison, with its supremely healthy meat and lean quality, and we source ours from areas where deer management is crucial. Experts estimate there have never been so many deer in the UK, and with an absence of natural predators their sheer numbers threaten to overwhelm natural ecosystems. We source our wild venison from the Cairngorms in Scotland and the Fountains Abbey Estate, which is just up the road from us in Ripon, North Yorkshire. The Cairngorms is one of the wildest and romantic areas of the British Isles, while the Fountains Abbey Estate supplies us with wild parkland venison as their rangers need to control the numbers carefully. We typically stock Red deer, but occasionally receive Sika and Fallow deer.
