Meat Inn) and back in 2014 Martin Wells, the Manager of the Meat Inn, took over
the business and opened as Orwells.
Martin has a wealth of experience within the Butchery business since
1983 – 1984 Martin worked at the Co-Operative Department
Store as a Saturday boy as his first introduction to Butchery. He found that he had a keen interest to

In 1986 Martin did 6
months with Stuart Brothers (who were based in Littlewoods Department Store)
and then 6 months with Asda, Ipswich at which point Martin felt he would gain
more experience within a private butchers so he joined the Meat Inn in 1987.
Martin started with
the Meat Inn as a “sausage maker” and after 3 years of training progressed to
being a fully fledged Butcher. Martin
relocated to Bury St Edmunds in 1990 to work as a Butcher until 1992 when he
became the Manager of the shop for a further 3 years.

Relief Area Butcher Manager working out of Diss, Braintree, Witham, Bishop
Stortford, Waltham Cross, Halstead and Sudbury trouble shooting, quality
control and ensuring that practices and legislation was being met.
1998 Martin became
the permanent Manager of the Meat Inn in Carr Street, Ipswich where he has been
