Meat Bar

Meat Bar

Meat by name, meat by nature, and you’ll find a good bavette steak at The Meat Bar. The Bavette meat is found once the flank and fat has been taken off and needs to be cooked expertly to make the most of this, traditionally less tender, meat. Some 5pm diners have had it, here’s what they have to say:

Great food, good service, nice and relaxed yet superb quality food! Couldn’t even manage a pudding!!!! Rabbit meatballs, lovely steak – if you are a MEAT lover, then get a table booked here asap!!!!!

Aspiring Don

The place does smell a bit of smoked meat but I guess that’s you be expected. The chicken liver pate with apricot chutney was delicious as was the bavette stea, which was cooked perfectly medium rare. The rabbit and bacon meatballs were good. Service was excellent, really friendly and attentive.
