About The Butcher & Tonic

The Butcher and Tonic is a new bar and restaurant that serves up amazing steaks and a huge selection of gin varieties in the heart of Lancaster. Found just a stone’s throw from Lancaster Castle, the main rail station and St Nicholas Arcades, The Butcher and Tonic is close to the city’s main attractions and sights. The restaurant is located in the upper floor of The Butcher and Tonic and serves incredibly juicy steaks cooked to your liking, as well as British-inspired mains like baked cod, crispy pork belly and rolled shoulder of lamb. Downstairs, you’ll find a fully functioning bar complete with over 80 gins and 11 tonics, all served by experienced bartenders who know a thing or two about making a cocktail. This city centre hotspot is known to stay busy, so book ahead of time to snag a table.
