This New York-style steakhouse occupies premises that once housed the Brewery Tap – a boozer frequented by generations of Glasgow University students. But the drinkers’ loss is everyone else’s gain, because the Butchershop Bar & Grill is very good indeed. Decor is straightforward but slick, staff hit the right note, and the menu bookends its top-quality steak with starters and desserts that suggest this is a talented kitchen. The beef comes as chateaubriand (for two), fillet, rib-eye, rump, sirloin and T-bone, all served with tomato, chips or mash and a sauce, although the menu also provides alternatives for those who don’t dig steak. To begin, you might fancy excellent braised oxtail, crisped in panko, with buttered spinach and celeriac purée; for dessert, a simple but satisfying apple crumble with thyme custard does the job. Weekend brunches and cocktails complete the offer.
