I ate at Butcher and Grill (Battersea) with work colleagues for a Christmas get-together. A few of them had been raving about how good the steaks are in this place, so as a meat lover I was looking forward to it...what a letdown it turned out to be!
After the recommendations I of course had a steak for my main (rib eye)...but was hugely disappointed. The meat just wasn't that special and was in fact rather sinewy...and pretty poorly cooked.
This was bad....but my starter had been worse. I had the mussels, far too many of which were still closed and those of which were fully open just didn't taste right. Needless to say I didn't eat all of them...but the next day I was sick as a dog and given that I'd been the only person to have the mussels, I'm totally convinced they were the cause.
Top all this off with slow service from offish staff and you have a recipe here for a DIRE restaurant. Just avoid this place like the plague, there are way better restaurants in London!
