Archer's Butchers

Archer’s of Norwich was established in 1929 by John Archer who started in Norwich’s famous provisions market.

John founded the shop on Plumstead Road that still exists to this day. His son, James (Jimmy) Archer, came into the trade as soon as he was allowed to leave school and in the early 80s bought the business from his father.

Since then the business developed and the shop doubled in size to cope with the extra demand, and a delicatessen and baguette takeaway were added.

Now in its third generation, James (Jamie) Archer is taking the business forward but also maintaining traditional techniques and methods used by his father (Jimmy) and grandfathers (John Archer & Oliver Craske.)
