Meet the

Watlington team

Welcome to our team of Watlington butchers. They are a friendly bunch, who take great care to ensure you receive the highest quality cuts and exceptional service. Look out for their tips throughout the website. Feel free to visit the store and ask them for advice.

The owner


Tom is the second generation of Calnans involved in the business and blends a deep respect for history with a fresh vision of Calnan Brothers for the future. Always involved from a young age, he has learnt at the hands of the Brothers and is now taking a lead role in driving the organisation forward. The new refit at the Watlington shop is the start of this vision and Tom has lots of exciting ideas for the years to come. Always open for new ideas and listening to customer feedback, give Tom your input when you are next in the shop.

The shop manager


Kevin is the tenured old hand in Calnan Brothers. His knowledge and experience in butchery is unrivalled with 38 years in the industry, 34 of those at Calnan Brothers. For 30 years he has taken an important role in the management of the business and 15 of those have been at our Watlington Shop. A friendly face with customer service at the heart of what he does, make sure you take advantage of his knowledge about cuts, preparation and recipes when you see him.

The shop assistant


Dan is our newest addition to the team and brings an exciting vitality to the group. Newly qualified and brimming with ideas, Dan is equally at home with culinary creativity or customer service. Always keen to learn, Dan’s energy and contribution to Watlington are already well recognised. Make sure you try his oven ready meals, which are a tasty and practical new addition to the Calnan Brothers range.
