Sunday Roast at The Butchershop Bar & Grill Glasgow

Sunday Roast at The Butchershop Bar & Grill

The perfect Sunday roast can be found on Sauchiehall Street, as Tracey McCallum discovers...

We’re spoiled for choice when it comes to good food in Glasgow but it’s a while since I’ve been bowled over. In a quest to remedy this, and with a taste for Sunday lunch and all the trimmings, my friend and I visit The Butchershop.

I’m straight away impressed with the decor, featuring lots of leather, wood and exposed brick, which feels somehow fitting.

While we scan the menu, our server appears at the table brandishing a butcher’s block laden with cuts of meat including a foot long tomahawk steak.

She talks us through each, pointing out the marbling, explaining how long each piece has been hung and how it’s best cooked.

It’s clear that considerable time and effort has been invested in the training of their team - it’s reflected in the knowledge displayed and we enjoy the theatre of it all. 

Bemused by the name, we choose the 35 day dry aged roast tafelspitz (loosely translated as ‘tip of meat for the table’, in this case it’s rump; the tip from the sirloin) for two people to share, £35.

Cooked medium rare, it’s carved at the table and served with pillowy Yorkshire puddings, roast spuds, horseradish and gravy. It’s meltingly tender, and the accompanying bottle of La Picoutine Carignan Grenache, £19, washes it down beautifully. 

Pancotta with blackcurrant coulis and caramelised figs, £7, for me, and sticky toffee pudding, £7, across the table, follow for dessert, both delicious.

The thoughtful touches and knowledgeable staff put The Butchershop Bar & Grill a cut above the rest.
