Edgar Green took the corner shop at number 117in 1887, and soon after he won a famously fierce fight, allowing him to display his game outside the shop. Although he died a few years later, carcases have been hung at 117 Mount Street ever since, and the traditional butcher’s shop displays provide one of the familiar sights of this part of Mayfair.
On Edgar Green’s death, Robert Allen took over the shop, having previously run a shop just around the corner on South Audley Street, which had been opened by his father in 1830. The site on Mount Street has remained a butchers shop from then until now
Richard Garrett inherited the business in the 1960s and owned it until his death in 2005.
