Ivan Clarke opened his first shop in 1986,situated in Lynton North Devon just within the border of the Exmoor National Park. Ivan was born in Ilfracombe and has lived in North Devon his whole life as his parents and grandparents have before him.
His passion for butchery started at the age of Eleven delivering meat on his butchers bike for the Co-op in Ilfracombe.
In February 2008 Ivan Clarke Butchers moved into their new modern premises in Ilfracombe bringing Ivan back to his home town.This move has enabled Ivan Clarke Catering Butchers Ltd to expand their services to a much greater area and customer base.
Now with two of their three sons working in the business, Ivan and his wife June can see a good future for a local supplier; their main priority being to always produce a top quality product, choosing to serve only the best available.
We source from our trusted suppliers ensuring Quality and Service. All our products are butchered and prepared here at our premises.
We take pride in producing our own Sausages and Burgers using the same traditional recipes and methods that are proved to be tried and tested for generations.
Shane and Gregg are the next generation to take Ivan Clarke Butchers forward.
