70 Years of Tradition

Our Story

Meet team H.Dayus, in particular Gina Saunders at the front who is the daughter of Henry Dayus the man that brought the passion of meat to an entire family. In 1952, Henry purchased the butchers shop, G A Lewis, where he worked. In fact, hundreds of years before that 9 St. Johns was built specifically as a butchers and its tradition still oozes out of the walls. The shop has remained in the family ever since his passing and Gina, her son Tristan and husband Craig have kept his talents and love for the trade alive and thriving. Everyone involved in the business is part of the family. We are now successfully mixing the blend of tradition, family values and modern day life to make a butchers that has heart in all that it does.
