Exceptional Meals at reasonable cost. The place offers a nice sea view eating space. The menu speaks for itself and offers such a variety that you can never go wrong! Mouth-watering meals!

I had a varied menu ranging from chicken to burger and off course a couple of steaks. Well cooked and served with a good ranges of sauces. Beer on draught or by bottle and a well... More

We were in a group of 5 people on a Monday evening and I was surprised at how busy it was, this could be down to the fact it is adjoined to the Holiday Inn though. However, we were still waiting about 45 minutes for our starters which is not great. My starter was warm despite the wait, and my... More

Very big restaurant but I can not fault the service or willingness to please! The 200g sirloin was delicious and served medium as requested! The chateaubriand was excellent. A superb meal. The only gripe is the cloakroom which is not situated in the restaurant and needs a lot of attention!!!

I love this place, it's a really good steakhouse and has decent seafood options too. Nice fresh design and atmosphere, not your typical hotel restaurant at all. Always had a nice group of people without being crowded.

My husband and I recently visited the Butcher Block for dinner based on raving reviews from our friends. We arrived at 9:00 pm and we were rushed through the menu, told that the kitchen is closing although the restaurant closes at 10:30 pm and asked to place the order as we sat down. Not having looked through the menu properly,... More

Dear Desly (Manageress on duty, 12 January 2017 @ 21:00) Your "quick, brush it off" attitude stinks. Your menu states that you serve baked cheese cake. However, after a piece of tasteless fridges cheese cake landed on my table & questioned the waitress, your response was "We never served baked cheese cake! ". Update your menu!!!! This was my fifth... More

For the restaurant to be at capacity and still provide fantastic food and perfect service; Butcher Block has proven that they have the capabilities of always providing great service. The food as amazing, perfectly cooked, well seasoned and the portion was nothing short of ideal. I highly recommend the blue cheese snails! Thanks for the good time.

My group of 31 had lunch, great service and food, the staff went the extra mile was almost flawless last 4 guests had a short wait but all turned out good in the end. Food is good can handle from big to small, most of my group having dinner here tonight which is a good sign worth a try

Thank Stephen M
