A word from The Butchershop Bar & Grill
The Butchershop Bar and Grill is one of Glasgow's most fashionable dining and drinking spots. With its stunning backdrop – Glasgow University and Kelvingrove Art Gallery as its majestic neighbours – The Butchershop, based in the heart of the west end of the city, offers a very modern experience based on the good old fashioned steakhouse and cocktail bar concept.
The contemporary interior of The Butchershop has a Manhattan-loft feel; all exposed brickwork and clean lines with old meeting the very new, creating the ideal setting in which to enjoy the rather fabulous signature cocktail list with favourites such as the Ratpack Manhattan and the Champagne Daisy, before settling in to the grill menu. Here the best 21-28 day- dry aged Scottish beef is served, butchered in-house by our chefs with a fabulous selection of equally good supporting acts including Loch Fyne oysters, fresh fish specials, braised lamb shanks and daily vegetarian options and much, much more...........

    Tried the Butchershop after recommendations by many people. Menu very good with plenty choice for everyone, even if steak isn't your thing. Was thoroughly impressed by the food and service and will definatly be back! My only gripe is the 10% mandatory charge added because there were 6 of us dining. I feel it's unnessasary and tbh annoyed us all in our group, particularly when our bill was upwards of £300 prior to the charge. Top place though :-)

    Lovely food, nice surrounding s, only gripe was an embarrassing moment with tomato ketchup. The give u glass bottles from the fridge, which you spend 5 ins hitting only for no sauce to come out. Providing a small pot would be much better. We noticed another girl having same issues, and waiter's response wasn't great.

    We were in Glasgow to see Lady GAGA at the Hydro and were in the Kelvingrove area. The staff were lovely and friendly and the pre-theatre menu was excellent value. Had we been staying longer we would have gone the next day also.

    We has the two steaks, fries and bottle of wine deal for £30. The steaks were cooked beautifully. Only complaint was that we were seated at a table in the middle if the room with tables very close to us on either side and it felt a bit cramped

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 28/10/2014
    My boyfriend and I went on Tuesday, for the 1st time, to The Butchershop Bar and grill. I picked the rump steak and it was the best steak I have ever tasted. My boyfriend also chose the same, which allowed us to use the two rump steaks and a bottle of wine for £30 deal. Could not fault the food at all (cheesecake is also good) ! The service was also very good - servers were always happy to help and really went the extra mile for us. The bartender also came to the table to advise about whickeys, as the one we had requested had ran out. This was a nice touch and turned a negative into a positive for us. The only slight negative is that sides and desserts are perhaps slightly overpriced. However, I can't wait to return again soon.

  • 2nd visit - fantastic food!!!!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 25/10/2014
    We had our second visit to the Butchershop and the food did not let us down. The chef cooked our steak to perfection. The food was divine, the atmosphere was lovely and the choice of wine was brilliant. Try the boom boom red wine - its fabulous. My only grip is that our table was situated very close to another and I felt that their needed to be slightly more space between us and the next couple. The restaurant is staffed by some very friendly and helpful people. Its a great place to go. We don't live in Glasgow so its a real treat for us to visit. I would highly recommend this place.

    Excellent meal but expensive. The room to the left as you enter the restaurant is much more cosier and quieter, much more to my liking than the one we were seated in on this occcasion (i.e. immediately right as you enter). The tables for two are VERY small and once dinner is served you barely have room to lift and put down your glass.

    My daughter and I felt quite chilled in the restaurant. My son and husband were disappointed in the quality of their steaks. For the price they were expecting much better. They also thought that vegetables should have been included in the dish. My sea bass dish was delicious. My daughter was also disappointed in her steak salad. We will not return.

    Me and a friend were looking for a place to eat with feet food but at a good value. We booked a table on the Tuesday for the burger/steak, fries and a bottl of wine for £30 deal and safe to say it was worth every penny. The wait time on an exceptionally busy night was brilliant, waited less than 15 minutes for our main course. The staff were so polite and accommodating, couldn't of asked for better service! I'd recommend this place a thousand times over if you want a delicious burger or steak. 10/10!

    The waitress who came to look after our table walked off and didn't return, preferring to send another waiter because we told her the cocktail we had was flat. The steak was no where near as good as on previous visits and the chips were poor. The steak tartare however was delicious.

    Booked to have an early meal before a show. It took almost 1 and a half hours for our main courses to arrive and we had to eat what we could and leave before having the desserts we had ordered. The serive seemed completely disorganised and despite us saying that we would need to leave by 7:15 and the promises that our meals were on the way, they were very late.
