Commonwealth ‘Steak as Usual’

Travel restrictions are now in play across the city and we would just like to let our customers know that we are open for steak as usual and will be operating normal hours, opening daily from 12 noon.

Part of Sauchiehall Street is partially closed for vehicles due to the Kelvingrove Lawn Bowls events directly across the road but you can still easily access The Butchershop via a taxi or car from the top of Radnor Street or Clayslaps Street on Argyle Street.

In celebration of The Games we are running a special Commonwealth lunch menu available from Monday – Saturday between 12 and 5pm which you can view here. We do hope that you join us over the next two weeks of the exciting Games, and if you’re planning to enjoy the Culture and Festival 2014 celebrations at the Kelvingrove Band Stand and Park we’d love to have you at The Butchershop.

We’ve already had some of the visiting nation teams sampling our awesome Scottish steak, but from Team Butchershop to Team Scotland and every other athlete we’d like to wish you the very best of luck on Wednesday and hope that you enjoy our awesome city, awesome people, and our awesome food and drink!

Two weeks today the biggest sporting event is going to begin in Glasgow and we can’t wait to support the Commonwealth Games Glasgow 2014!

We’re surrounded by Games and Culture 2014 venues with the Kelvingrove Lawn Bowls directly across the road, The Kelvingrove Bandstand a two minute walk and the SSE Hydro and SECC Precinct round the corner.

We want to wish all the athletes – especially Team Scotland, the very best of luck and let the Games commence!

And if you’re looking to dine in Glasgow throughout the Games, we will be posting our special Commonwealth Games lunch menu and cocktails soon.

Team Butchershop

Graduation: Class of 2014

Celebrate graduation with your family and friends at The Butchershop Bar & Grill with our £30pp three course menu. Our graduation menu is available from now until late summer to help celebrate the class of 2014. Maple braised short rib, soft shell crab, sea bream and our smoking steaks all feature alongside a glass of Prosecco to toast your graduate!

We have also pulled together a list of our favourite wines to accompany our dishes to make your day extra special.

White wine

If you’re looking for a very easy-drinking dry white, with flavours that go perfectly with seafood, in particular our beet salad, soft shell crab or our wild leek cannelloni then we would recommend the French Mas Puech, Picpoul de Pinet. Or for something a little more special try one of our exclusive wines to the Butchershop – the Chablis 1er Cru from the legendary wine producer, Bernard Legland which is a classic and complex wine that leaves a long lingering palate.

Red Wine

Steak is perfectly paired with a glass of Malbec, especially an Argentinian one. The best producers of Malbec have to be the Catena winery, with this family creating wines that are unforgettable. Our favourite is the Catena Alta Malbec which is a must with a ribeye.

Dessert

We’re big advocates of dessert wine and adore the luxurious and silky Royal Tokaji, which is one of the most renowned dessert wines in the world. Great with our sticky toffee pudding or even on its own. For a lighter wine try the Tokaji Late Harvest which is available by the glass and makes a great accompaniment for any of our desserts.

Reserve your table for graduation to avoid disappointment. View our full graduation 2014 menu here.
