Superb restaurant in a beautiful building. Went on steak night, Thursday, and couldn't believe we got a bottle of wine each for £20! And the rib eye was excellent- there is no way that steak was only 10oz. Definitely recommend More...

It is one of only a few places where I have been able to choose from several dishes on the main menu. The food and service was fantastic. It is a really lovely building and had a great atmosphere. We will definitely be going again and have already recommended to friends. More...

Brilliant customer service Booked a baby shower elsewhere to be leaving 20 minutes after arriving as many details were so bad. There were 20 of us so needed to find somewhere to accommodate us all, nipped in to here to ask if they could fit us in without a pre order, no questions asked they had the tables set upstairs and ready for us within 5 minutes,offered us so many choices of food and was served to us within 20 minutes which is amazing considering there was only one chef in. Everyone loved their food and will all back. Thank you so much for making the effort and making sure my baby shower wasn’t ruined. We will defiantly be back More...

We enjoyed a birthday dinner as a couple. The leek starter had an amazing sauce with Garstang Blue cheese with it.

Looking to book for something to eat around 4pm we were offered afternoon tea at Butcher and a Tonic for 11.95. Had a great experience from the start. the meat selection was wonderful. Succulent steak sandwiches and beautiful warm suausage rolls. Small cup of soup was lovely addition on a wet Saturday afternoon. The vegetarian options my companion had were acceptable but not the high standard of the meat options. We were told they were soon launching a veg / vegan menu so would be improving their options in these areas. The cake selection was diverse and wonderful including scones, cream and jam. Top all off with glass of proseco. Service was great with recommendations on their vast array of Gins. Would definitely recommend afternoon tea here. Great value. More...

Absolutely wonderful afternoon tea. As soon as we walked in we where welcomed and shown to the table we chose. Drinks were offered while we waited for our meal. After a few minutes our table was filled with so much wonderful food. soup for starters , followed by succulent steak and mushrooms in a tasty sauce on crusty brown bread, pastry rolls filled with beef, minted lamb, we didn’t know which to eat first. Then followed by scones and cakes with a serving of fresh cream. Best afternoon tea I have ever eaten. It wasn’t our first visit and definitely won’t be our last. Well done to the bar staff and the chef. ( minted lamb rolls where to die for.) More...

The restaurant is basic enough to be stylish. The staff are lovely and accommodating to every request. The food was really good, my steak master nephew said it was the best steak he’s ever had. The prices for the midweek deals are crazy. My only criticism is that the service in between courses for drinks and dessert was a bit slow. Having said that it wasn’t bad enough to lower my rating and it’s 5 stars as I would definitely recommend this place for a meal as much as I’d recommend the bar downstairs for good entertainment and drinks at a weekend.

Great location in Lancaster city. Used to be a Masonic Temple so has holds its own historic importance . Has dining area on two floors with toilets located on lower floor where the bar is located . Unfortunately from street level there it is a few steps up. Menu selection is limited but the actual dishes are well presented and tasty. I have been here twice with the family and do recommend this restaurant. As for the staff, they are an approachable lot . Yes we had a great eating experience with them. More...

Had our first experience of dining the butcher and tonic last night and it did not disappoint. The steaks were amazing, cooked to perfection, very generous portions of sides and the waitress recommended the chimicurri sauce when I enquired about a dairy free option. It was delicious, so tasty I finished it off on the salad! The cocktail menu is also varied with something for everyone and we had a few in the bar post meal, where there was a singer/guitarist creating a lovely atmosphere. Perfect evening for a lovely meal with friends. Get yourselves there! More...

Very impressed with my first visit, first off the staff are lovely and friendly with is always a good start! We tried the very reasonable £25 menu (3 courses and 3 gins) although our waitress was happy to swap one of my gins for a Merlot to accompany my perfectly cooked steak the starter and mains were top notch! Desert wasn’t as good, but that’s just personal choice as my friend’s looked amazing will definitely visit again. More...

We, 3 of us, went to for a meal here on Boxing Day evening. Although we were the only people there we had a very nice evening and a lovely meal. All three courses were very nice and although there was a wait you knew it was because the food was being prepared fresh. Despite being a Steak place we had Lamb and Monkfish (we had beef for Christmas Day at home so...) Lamb was cooked well as was the Monkfish.All told a good find and can see we will visit again More...

Mains were very good and the dessert was fantastic. Staff were attentive but not pestering, service was pretty quick but not rushed. More...

Well what can I say. Bit tricky finding somewhere for the whole family but always go with good reviews as customer service is more important to me personally. So the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating - more so as we had 5 very independent small children with us. The food was very tasty and there was nothing at all we could fault the restaurant on. However, my sister took ill which was a big worry and I was so impressed by how the staff dealt with this situation. Simply couldn’t have done more and were so very patient and caring & never for one movement made us feel like a burden even tho they spent an extraordinary amount of time helping us. They went far above and beyond the call of duty. I would have given a v good rating without this but the way they behaved & looked after Tina was so commendable, thank you all so much, especially Robert. Tonight wasn’t all the family believe it or not but we will most certainly be back. That kind of service is not a given these days just want to thank you so very much. Laura xx More...

There's so much to say about our lovely meal....the options and value for a Thursday night (it's our date night!), the presentation, the tastes, the variety, the quality. My wife fancied the 20oz T-bone steak and the starter of beetroot 3 ways, whilst I ate off the 3 courses plus 3 gins menu, choosing Steak Tartare as my starter. Starters were out in good time and looked delightful. She loved her beetroot medley of regular red, golden and a puree and my tartare was nicely cured, with capers and some pickled chantenay carrots, which were really sharp but lovely and crunchy. They were good about swapping out the gins (I was driving and my wife doesn't do gin!) and we were really looking forward to our mains. She chose a salad bowl for her side and a garlic butter sauce for the steak, which was bang on medium rare, not over-seasoned and a top-class example, arriving on a bed of greens....she managed it but only just! My Hake was just lovely and soft, the veloute of smoked bacon and shallot was creamy and salty, mmmm, and the pea fritter was, well, full of peas - if anything a bit big but I wanted to eat it all. I admit to wiping the veloute boat out with my finger!! On balance, a smaller fritter and another veg - say some more (cooked not pickled) carrots, may have been nicer - but I'm being picky. We were really too full for a dessert but decided that the Lemon Mousse was probably going to be light enough - what an absolute belter! It was light and tart. The meringue pieces gave an light, sweet offset and the spots of lemon and the raspberry coolis gave another blast of tanginess. The biscuit added a bit to presentation and textures in the mouth - it was a triumph. All considered, a wonderful meal in a historic location (the old Masonic rooms), friendly service, decent speed (there were 4 tables and 14 people as I recall) and change from £60. They pleased us a great deal, so I'm glad to take a few minutes to say so! More...

All were beautifully cooked and presented; the veg was great - perfectly cooked with some bite; the sauces all very flavoursome. My steak looked, smelled, and tasted superb. Don't remember ever having one better. They come from a local family-run farm, so very few food miles too. The service was great - very friendly. Lovely ambience. Will definitely be going again.

well the Butcher and Tonic... we got there and explained that i won the competition, the manager Rob was lovely and when asked is there a set menu? replied "no, order what you wish" which was incredibly encouraging, as i felt maybe taking advantage would be a bit too cheeky, but full advantage was taken and my god it was awesome, me and The girlfriend ordered different things to get a more fuller taste of the place, and i shall get back to the food in a moment, the staff were brilliant, knowledgeable and polite, i didn't get her name which is a shame but she was lovely and gave us the time we needed and she is the only waitress who has ever come back to ask "is everything ok for you?" when my face has not been filled with food, the only one! :) she picked her moments very well. now the food. the started was a beef capaccio (i think) it was awesome! just little enough to warm up my stomach, and flavorsome enough to prepare my pallet, oh and the salmon the girlfriend had was good too. The mixed Grill i had was by far the best i have ever had, everything cooked to perfection, i half expected (due to it being a free meal) things to not have the time taken over them, this was not the case, it was as close to perfect as i have ever had, absolutely beautiful! the wine we wanted was sold out but i was suggested another would be to our taste and my god the wine was good, very good, complimented the meal incredibly, The gilfriend had the swordfish steak.... ooooh what a delight! it was amazing too. we were unsure if dessert would be appreciated between the meat sweats and the food baby, but we risked it and went for the cheese platter, Lancashire cheese is bloody good ;) top notch 5 stars from me! would highly recommend! bang on and i will certainly be there again. :) More...
