Went with a group of ladies on a cold windy night for dinner. - from the start of the booking/parking/service and food - we were all impressed. especially the deserts- every bite enjoyable and although we thought we might struggle to finish every last bite. All the plates were emptied. thank you

My wife & I decided to share the #meat&more platter and @ $48p/p were a little disappointed. Whilst the Backstrap, sticky spicy chicken and accompanying sides were quite good, the beef short rib had bone fragments throughout the bbq sauce it was coated in and the Pork Belly was really bad, dry and like what you'd expect when you reheat a pork roast from the fridge 4 days past it's original cook. We passed on the Black Pudding for personal reasons. The desserts we choose being the FR Tart & Panna Cotta, were both good. Service was very good and staff were attentive.

All was fine apart from the steak that was tuff and possibly over cooked. The other items were delightful as too the wine.

We dined at butchers bench for the first time last night and won’t be returning. It was a special occasion (birthday) and we were very underwhelmed by the food particularly the size of food for the price. We ordered 3 of the signature meat and more platters @48 each and it was served to us as 1 platter with a very small amount of food. Most of the platter consisted of black pudding. It definitely wasn’t worth the $150. Very overpriced for what it is.

Bad and salty food for entree and steaks had sinews and sauces were salty as well for the main, and had to ask a few times for water top up.
