Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

From the smart cut of the waiters in jeans, white shirts and black ties to the trim cut of the steak on your plate, the Butchershop exudes high standards and confidence like next to no other steak restaurant in Glasgow. Said waiters you may find a touch over-exuberant in their eagerness to impress and please, but more importantly they seem well trained and their guidance is to be trusted, be it on recommended dishes or wine pairings. Between the stripped brick walls, leather booths and moody low-lighting there’s an old-timey Manhattan feel to the atmosphere, but the food strives to be contemporary. Cuts on the bone are a novel and visually impressive new offering, though they’re so big they only work as sharers. A classic fillet steak with hand-cut chips is a fine piece of meat cooked to perfection. If you don’t finish with a dessert – and the lemon meringue pie with tangy lemon sorbet at its centre says you should – then finish with a cocktail. The mint gin fizz is, like the Butchershop in general, a particularly satisfying mix of style and substance.

  • High point: Fantastic views of Kelvingrove museum and the University
  • Low point: The beer selection is a bit boring
  • Notable dish: Fillet steak

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…
