Tomahawk Thursdays

Tomahawk Steak

Ok, so there’s a reason that we’re known as THE HOME OF THE TOMAHAWK and it’s quite simply because we champion this meaty behemoth like no one else! It’s no secret that we don’t mess around when it comes to meat and that’s most certainly the case with this glorious cut of beef!

Join us EVERY Thursday in March for the return of our legendary TOMAHAWK THURSDAYS at The Butchershop Bar & Grill. Only £70 for two people, devour one of our 1.2kg (it’s that big) 45 day dry-aged TOMAHAWK steak sharers, plus two sides, two sauces and a bottle of house red or white wine for two.

  • Thursday 2nd of March
  • Thursday 9th of March

What is a Tomahawk Steak?

One of our colossal Cuts On The Bone, this cut is so kick-ass, it’s named after a deadly weapon. Our 45 day dry aged TOMAHAWK steaks are a rite of passage for any true meat aficionado. Aged, cooked and served with an entire, half-meter long rib bone, the meat is packed with the most intense beefy punch of any cut you’re likely to try and, of course, comes with that added ‘wow-factor’ you only get with this Flintstone-esq cut! An ideal sharing steak for a special occasion or the ultimate indulgence for an ambitious one.

Butchershop Roll Out: Serving up breakfast for annual Taxis to Troon

For over 70 years Glasgow’s taxi drivers have been donating their time, and decorating their taxis, to give Glasgow children a totally awesome day out.  It’s practically a city institution at this point and should need no formal introduction, but really,we just love the epic work those guys do over there.  13413157_1494304457251856_7805173097353615413_n


Glasgow Taxi’s have taken children with special educational needs on an annual big day out down the Ayrshire Coast. Today over 300 children along with their parents and carers join the annual taxi outing to Troon. With over 150 taxi drivers lining the streets in their decorated cars the atmosphere was positively buzzing – even Glasgow weather couldn’t put a damper on spirits here!



The annual outing leaves just across the road from us here at The Butchershop,so we wanted to do our small bit and make sure everyone was well fed before hitting the road. With sausages and bacon donated from our suppliers Cairnhill Farms and more tattie scones than you can shake a stick at, our staff handed out over 300 rolls to keep those bellies full for the long drive.  Our owners James and Louise also mucked in, donning their Butchershop aprons for the big morning breakfast run. Louise said – “We wanted to show our support and praise the commitment of the taxi drivers involved by serving up bacon and sausage rolls to everyone involved before their journey to the seaside. We are delighted to play our part and we only hope this small gesture will making a positive difference to their day”.


We wish all those involved with the Glasgow Taxi Outing Fund an awesome day, let’s hear it for Glasgow’s epic tax driver force! Find out more about their amazing work here and see you again next year!

It’s about to get crazy at Butchershop HQ… We love Glasgow, and thankfully Glasgow loves us right back. :) If you’re trying to bag a table to enjoy our beefy goodness this Christmas, give our team a call to check our limited availability before Meat Mania AKA December kicks off!! For those of you locked in and reserved, our team is PUMPED and ready to help you party.

gift voucher Glasgow restaurant The Butchershop Bar & Grill
If we could send you a juicy steak in an envelope, we know you guys and girls would love it but you’ll just have to content yourself with gift vouchers for the time being.

Take the stress out of Christmas shopping and give your friends something they really want. Meat, meat, meat and more meat!!! You know who we’re talking about, we’ve all got that one friend… you know the one? No, not THAT one!  The one that’s always talking about food 24/7.

Purchase our gift certificates online and gift via post, email or text. Or pick them up from your Butchershop server.


Is that the sound of New Year bells chiming or is it ‘TOMAHAWK-time’ I hear?

There’s only one way to bring in the bells in Glasgow and it doesn’t involve standing outside in the rain, or sharing the turn of the year with ***ahem*** Glasgow “characters”.

Tomahawk Steak

It’ll  be TOMAHAWKS  aplenty as we countdown to New Year at The Butchershop; with a live DJ, steaks on the grill and fizz-a-flowing, you’ll be glad you choose to celebrate in a cosy restaurant rather than under a cloak of Glasgow drizzle.

View our New Year’s Eve / Hogmanay menu


Lucozade? Check. Berocca? Check. Irn-Bru? Check.

When you’ve toasted every person you’ve loved, lost, or well.. anyone you’ve ever met! Then the ensuing hangover will need more than bright orange liquids to make it go away.

New Years Day Glasgow

Obviously, that’s where we come in with our epic New Year’s Day menu packed full of hangover-busting delights. From fried chicken to ribs, to roast sirloin of Border’s beef, we will have something to chase those hangover demons away.

Stv Appeal 2015

THANK YOU to all our guests, staff and suppliers that helped us do our bit for the STV Appeal and help children living in poverty in Scotland.

This is the third year we’ve backed the campaign and Friday night saw our team creating complimentary cocktails and mocktails over at STV HQ, quenching the thirsts of fundraisers galore for their live show. This was a celebration of the efforts from across Glasgow, from RBS, Lidl, Glasgow Warriors to school groups, choirs and dancers, with even The Rusk Company – Butchershop and Hutchesons donating a cheque to Sean Batty live on STV! Well done to Martin (Assist GM, Butchershop) for rallying the team!

Rusk Company STV

Between both of our venues, we raised a massive £1500 from customer donations and sales of our AWESOME steaks. Our owners, James and Louise Rusk have generously matched this donation taking the total to £3000 which goes straight to helping children in Scotland. Thanks to everyone who donated and to our supplier Pernod Ricard for the appreciated support. Peach Appeal Perfect was indeed perfect!


Lorraine Kelly revealed the final total raised on Friday night - a total sum of £2,913,083 donated by STV viewers. Amazing results for an outstanding charity! Until next year!
