Having been recommended to us more than once, we decided to visit the Butchershop Bar and Grill on a Wednesday for their pre-theater menu before a show at the Clyde Auditorium. Very glad that we did!
Initial expectations were fairly low. Afterall, a steakhouse is a steakhouse, right? Wrong!
The restaurant was surprisingly busy for an early midweek evening, and the ambience was warm and inviting, with relaxing soft jazz playing in the background.
The menu seemed rather unimaginative at first, and surprisingly, only one steak dish (a rump steak) on the menu, and at £3 supplement to the £13.95 price tag for a two course early dinner. The proof of the pudding (so to speak), was in the eating however. Both courses were of the highest quality, well presented, and cooked to perfection. Starters were chicken liver parfait with oatcakes, and tomato salad with caramelised onions and blue cheese. Both delicious. Both of us ordered the rump steak, both cooked rare (a dangerous choice for a rump steak!). The cut was narrow and thick - perhaps 2", rather than the more typical flat steak cut, and cooked to perfection. The meat was obviously of a high quality, well hung, and absolutely delicious!
Wines ranged from £18 to £160 per bottle, and our choice of red (around £25 as I recall) was more than acceptable.
A thoroughly enjoyable meal, and we'll certainly be back to try the "grown up" menu rather than the pre-theater.
