I name thee Sir Loin

Dinefwr White Park Cow

In the 16th century, King James I was invited by a well-to-do family to a banquet in Lancashire.

Wanting to impress the King, the family served the best cut of meat that money could buy, a loin of White Park beef. 

So impressed was the King by this magnificent feast he asked the butler to tell him more about the beef he was dining upon.

The butler responded and said it was a loin of White Park beef from Dinefwr. With that, the King picked up his carving knife and struck the meat while he announced 'Hence forth, thou shall be called ‘Sir Loin’.
