The story behind the
When Joe Lovett first produced “The Famous Speldhurst Sausage” at his butcher’s shop in the village he could never have imagined that over 50 years later that same brand would be widely enjoyed throughout the south east. It was the landlord of the local pub, the George and Dragon, who first realised the potential of this sausage and upon Joe’s retirement obtained the original recipe transferring the sausage making to the Pantiles in Royal Tunbridge Wells. In 1988 the Famous Speldhurst Sausage Recipe was passed on and to this day the sausages continue to be made in their current farm location on the outskirts of Tunbridge Wells. In addition the makers now also produce a range of high quality flavoured sausages that we are sure would gain Joe’s approval these being available in many local shops, pubs, restaurants and supermarkets.
