In an email on Monday morning the company said:
Iâ€™m very happy to let you be the first to know that we listened to your suggestion to open a Ginger Pig in Wanstead, and today can finally say that we are officially taking over No. 3 Clock House Parade!
We plan on re-fitting the shop before opening later in the year, so unfortunately you have to wait a little longer, but hopefully just until August. The shop will trade seven days a week, with opening times to follow shortly on our website. Weâ€™ll try and keep everyone as updated as possible via our social media channels, so do keep an eye on those. If youâ€™d like to be signed up to receive our e-newsletters, then please email me back and Iâ€™ll add you to the list.
As youâ€™d expect in any of our shops, we will be selling quality fresh meat from native breed animals reared naturally, slowly and from farms employing the highest welfare practices. There will be a good selection on offer from the everyday things such as free range chicken, bacon and pork chops, to roasting joints for the weekend, and meat for special occasions such as dry aged fore ribs of beef and spectacular geese and turkeys at Christmas.
Weâ€™ll also have a deli counter serving cold meats sliced to order, homemade patÃ©s and readymade dishes such as lasagne, cottage pie and potato gratin. And of course weâ€™ll have our famous sausage rolls and pies.
I canâ€™t wait to meet you very soon, my colleagues and I will be checking on the shop progress throughout the coming months, so if you are passing by the shop pop your head in and say hello!
