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!

Visited the Butchers Block a number of times as staying in the adjacent hotel. Every night was good with friendly staff and excellent food. 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 stocked wine selection. Would recommend, but may be worth booking as it does fill up quickly on some nights. If that's the case you can sit next door and the food will be brought to you if you don't mind a quieter atmosphere.

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 main was also fairly good nothing to write home about.

Other people on the table however were not impressed with their mains.

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.
