Our meal at Butchers Bistro was ok, but a bit disappointing for us. The beef stroganoff was ok, the beef was tender. My husband's sirloin steak was cooked as he requested and there was plenty of it, but he rated it only average.

Was really looking forward to visiting as it had good reputation and reviews .
Service was friendly but restaurant was looking a bit tired . Unfortunately we were disturbed throughout our meal by a little boy who kept racing around the restaurant and our table and chairs , little bit unsafe as waitresses coming in and out with plates of food etc . Later found out the child was visiting with his mum who was a friend of the waitresses and just having a chat .
We ordered ( there were 8 of us ) all orders repeated back to check all correct . Unfortunately when meals finally arrived , quite a long wait but ok as we were party of 8 ,,, one of our party did not have her order . Forgotten ! Not cooked and will take at least another 7 minutes ,,, this eventually came out after most of party had already eaten and she didn’t feel like eating by herself so left most of it and went away hungry .
Another guest had a much smaller stark than others and looked more like a rump than a fillet , queried it but wasn’t offered another .
Another guest asked for salad dressing which didn’t come and had to ask again .
Guests that did have correct order enjoyed their food but it certainly wasn’t the best they have had .
We complained about these things and did have a discount however left feeling very disappointed and unfortunately won’t be going back .
Have just noticed the property is now on the market for sale , maybe standards have worsened ?
Positive ,,,, decorated table and a bday card was signed for the bday celebration by restaurant .

A fabulous restaurant. All staff seem to be locals whom are helpful, friendly, and efficient. We had the fish dish which was excellent and washed that down with very good bottle of locally produced white wine. Would I go there again? A definite YES !

Having spent a few days in Cornwall for work, it was nice to have a day to relax in Newquay. Having googled where to eat, I found this little gem & was not disappointed! We ordered two sirloin steaks, cooked to perfection & the butchers platter to start. Couldn't be more impressed, especially with two alcoholic drinks & the bill less than 50£! Huge thanks to the lovely ladies who served us & recommended breakfast places too :0) I hope to return in the future... Highly recommend this place

Have eaten here before. Whenever we stay in the area we have at least one meal here.
Good choice of meat and fish dishes. Good service and all at a reasonable price.

Have noticed that the menu has been reduced slightly this year but still a good sellection.

Well worth a visit.
