100-year-old family butcher launches Bomber banger

Much-loved local butchers celebrates 100 years alongside the RAF

A local family butchers have launched a Bomber banger to celebrate the centenary of the RAF.

Odling Family Butchers is based on the High Street in Navenby and started business nearly 100 years ago in 1920.

They started out by selling excess pork that they had reared in their back garden and it has been growing in popularity ever since.

Now, the third generation of Odling butchers have created the ‘Lincolnshire Bomber County Sausage’.

The recipe builds on their award winning Lincolnshire sausage, but the key ingredient of some Tom Woods Bomber County ale to give it a distinctive taste.

Roy Odling told The Lincolnite: “We have strong links to the RAF and the county, so we thought that it would go down really well.

“We tried various recipes and combinations of flavours and the best one we came up with incorporated the Bomber County ale.”

The Lincolnite tried out the Bomber banger and it got a thumbs up from us! Get your own for £8.52 per kilogram.
