If you’re reading this you probably already realise that “not all meat is created equal”.
You have a favourite steak, a preferred age or maybe even breed but have you tried three British native breeds side by side? This is your chance for one night only.

Three handsome steers, mixed pasture fed by Stuart Dunkley just 70miles from London, all of a similar age when slaughtered, the beasts are currently being dry aged in the same coolroom at The Butchery Ltd.’s HQ and will be a delightful 48days at the eating.

We are setting up the BBQ and pulling out the picnic tables in our railway arch come butchery production space and pitting three breeds against each other for your meat tasting pleasures.

You will try a tartare and sirloin from -

The Longhorn – a classic beef animal known for a full-bodied beefiness

The Dexter – a small breed renowned for sweet, rich meat

The Irish Moiled – a rarer animal claiming tender, marbled meat with a distinct flavour.

The bones of it :

A glass of "punch" on arrival

A starter of three breeds of beef tartare

3 different breeds of Sirloin simply BBQ’d by chef Alan Stewart (previously been seen at Manson’s, The Lamb Shed, Two Dinners One Lunch, Chez Bruce,Launceston Place and if the rumours are true, a public loo in Peckham for Chelsea Fringe!)

Salads, potatoes, cheese, music and all that jazz that makes a BBQ a BBQ.

A sweet treat to finish up.

A voting board

Alcoholic drinks (Kernel Beer, wine, punch) will be available for purchase from the bar on the night. No BYO this is a licensed event.

And new meat lovin friends to ponder life’s eternal questions with….

"Is good meat like good wine and has terroir?"

"Do different breeds really taste different or is it what they are fed and how they are aged that creates the difference?"

"Is it the dry aging or the grass feeding that gives that awesome flavour?"

as a novice who is more interested in eating meat, than cooking or butchering it, this event was great fun and really great value. We left stuffed & very happy. The family style table set up meant we had a good chat with some other meat-lovers & the food & bar arrangements went smoothly so there were no delays. All in all, run very well & by very friendly people. Highly recommended :))

A thoroughly inspired evening learning about natives and rare breeds in the best possible way - blind tasting! The lightning fast butchery demonstration by Nathan and his team was a definite highlight - highly recommend you get yourself to The Butchery, if you haven't already!

Brilliant night...

Fantastic night at the Butchery - loved seeing the actual butchery of the cow and learning about the native and rare breads. Food was fantastic - you could have had a night with just the Caesar Salad croutons ;)
Very well organised - can't wait for the next one

Absolutely brilliant. What a great idea and perfectly executed. Such a great night. Please make this a regular event. Perhaps with different breeds each time. Big thanks again to Nathan and his team. Well done!
