The Butchershop smoothly delivers all the class and sass of a New York bistro, with great steaks, wines, cocktails and relaxed vibes. As the name might suggest, the butcher theme is strong here: a traditional set of scales meets you at the door, old-fashioned white tiles line the walls, the tables are big wooden slabs like butcher’s blocks, and rather unnervingly, a cleaver is nailed to the side of the bar. Like in sister restaurants, Hutchesons and the Spanish Butcher, speciality cuts are presented to diners before they’re cooked, so that you can admire them in all their raw glory. It’s all part of the excellent service. A diagram of a cow with different cuts mapped across its body overlays the menu of Scottish grass-fed steaks aplenty, plus some pleasant starters, such as creamy hot-smoked salmon rillette. Even the simplest of steak dishes arrives at the table huge, charred on the outside, yet super juicy and succulent on the inside, thanks to being dry hung for 45 days. The quality and location of the Butchershop make it pretty popular, so make sure to book early, especially at weekends.

The choicest cuts of meats in it's two most popular forms

Glasgow's commitment to carnivorous dining shows no sign of abating. On the informal side, the city is awash with gourmet burger joints that offer towering stacks of juicy, funked-up patties, while proponents of smoke-house barbecue pit-style food focus…

Bar Crawls: Glasgow - The Sauchiehall Street Saunter

18 Nov 2011

Making the most of Glasgow city centre drinking

Both ‘pub crawl’ and ‘Sauchiehall Street’ can evoke images of large groups of revellers staggering from one ropey watering hole to the next, the night hurtling towards a climax of kebab sauce and lost cloakroom tickets. Well this route aims to redress…
