Putting this here as more London-centric.

All those who work in the city - are you aware of the butchers on watling street?

Some colleagues of mine aren't even aware of it's existence.

    Queues out of the door for their hot counter? I've been going there on and off for years, both for the pre-cooked stuff and also for steaks.

    The one near the pub which has been around for years (iirc it used to be round the corner in Bow Lane), or the posh new one a bit further along that's part of the One New Change development? Are you recommending it?

    This is exactly the kind of thing I am talking about! Take a 5 pound note and join the queue.

    Called Porterford Butchers.

    Was thinking I used to work right by Watling Street and couldn't remember a butchers.

    Saw the name of the place. Ahh, now I remember. Yeah, I've been there many times.
