My name is Peter Ireland I have worked for J C Rook & sons for 35 years - from a young lad straight out of school to shop manager.
Assistant manager Jackie Tigg who is Julie Rook’s little sister, has been with us for 30 years! They can both remember shopping at Rook’s with their Nan and their mum & dad when they were really little. They can recall stories of Grandma going to Rook’s with their own dishes to be filled with pease pudding and faggots!
The company has grown massively since those early days, expanding from making pies & sausages at the Ramsgate shop to having their own production factory & another 11 shops and internet shopping website and supplier to restaurants, pubs and nursing homes. We even made a Christmas advert at the Ramsgate shop for ITV!
We supply only the best quality meats and award winning sausages and are not just a traditional butcher. We sell hot & cold snacks, filled rolls, salads, homemade pies & Kentish ham from our delicatessen counter.
We also love to invent our own recipes from burgers & sausages to something different with chicken! We also love to give our customers tips on cooking our produce and will even help them to their car.
Our service is second to none with dedicated staff who seems to stay with the company for many years.
Our customers value our first class service and come from far and wide to visit our fabulous shop full of fabulous produce.
While other business have come and gone, and thanks to generations of loyal customers, we have been a solid fixture in King Street Ramsgate for over 50 years.
