In November 1994 Nick Hartwell & Roger Elliott formed a partnership and opened Elliotts of Towcester Butchers. Nick ran the shop and has continued to do so to this day.
In 2004 Nick introduced Pamela Grattan into the business. Between them they formed Elliotts Kitchen and Pamela developed a range of pies, ready meals, cooked meats, quiches, salads, cakes and traditional deli fayre. The immediate success of this led to the opening of Elliotts Deli in the same building behind the butcher's shop.
In September 2017 Roger Elliott retired from the Towcester partnership. Nick has become the sole owner of the butcher's business - which is why the name has now changed to Hartwell's of Towcester.
Pamela and Nick continue to run the Kitchen/Deli between them and this has been renamed to Towbury Court Fine Foods.
Only the name above the door along with the labelling on our products has changed. We are also looking forward to developing new products over time. Our suppliers will remain the same and continue to be as local as possible.
You can be assured that the high standards delivered over the past 22 years will continue and we look forward to your continued support.
