Scope and content

Prize winning bangers made by a village butchers have taken on a whole new level of fame after being endorsed by Downton Abbey stars. The Bampton Royal pork sausages, produced on site at Patrick Strainge Butchers, were feasted on by the cast of the ITV period drama when it was filmed in the village earlier this year. Staff also produced a Mrs Patmore pie, made with lamb, red wine and rosemary, named after the Downton Abbey cook. Actress Lesley Nicol, who plays Mrs Patmore in the series, came in to sample them and got behind the counter joking that she wanted to serve customers.
