We have never had a bad meal at this establishment. Obviously the steak is ordered on most occasions, although I had a delicious oxtail (on special) recently. Today we both had rump steak that had been hung for 44 days. It was cooked to perfection, and the accompanying monkey gland and peppercorn sauces with onion rings and creamed spinach made... More

My boyfriend and I went to Butcher Boys for the date night special which is just a great value for money. We got a bottle of wine and a 3 course meal that was a delight from the starters to the dessert. As a main dish we both had the fillet, tender and grilled to perfection - just exactly how... More

Had a really great meal here tonight, we didn't book but they found us a nice table. I order a small fillet with mushroom and red wine sauce with blue cheese salad and a glass of SA Merlot! It was excellent, very well cooked and a lovely salad. The waitress was brilliant very efficient. Hubby had lamb chops with calamari... More

Butcher boys is very much a classic steakhouse. The atmosphere was congenial with a variety of other diners from couples to groups all seeming to enjoy themselves. The service was very good and my medium/rare steak was very precisely cooked.

Great atmosphere with attentive staff. Menu above average in pricing but food in terms of steak are excellent however mine was undercooked and the chicken wings were bloody and uncooked. Heard very good reports so just putting this down as our experience

We were recommended Butcher Boys by our host and completely understand why it gets such good ratings. We visited on a Wednesday night and both chose the Boys Night menu (available to women too!) - excellent quality, succulent steak, cooked just right, with good service from our waiter. It was really interesting to understand more of his background and how... More
