Further to my long-ago first post on BBW, I’ve finally managed to get back for dinner recently.
There are definitely some interesting options (steak with paua sausages, confit duck, snails for dessert), but don’t expect frilly or fancy plating. BBW is about quality and generosity of meat in a simple butchery setting.
They’re doing a $50 two-course or $60 three-course dinner deal (which might be good value for the three course if you can eat that much) as well as offering individual menu items, and you definitely need to book (seating for around 20 pax only).
The sides were small for the cost (a couple of spoonfuls each of potatoes and brussell sprouts for $12 on top of $30 and $35 mains), so I’m not sold on the price point for the evening dining, however, the place was full on a Wednesday night and the duck was delicious, so maybe thats just me.
We did spot delish looking meaty platters to start at other tables, and so I think BBW is a good place to come with friends for a leisurely evening of catching up.
For me they still fit best as a daytime option where there’s some really good value tasty eating to be had (hot brisket or spit roasted pork sandwiches, terrines or soup for around $9, a pork burger, turkey salad or BBQ pork rib meal for around $18 or platters for $20-$25), as well as a fantastic range of charcuterie goodies for slipping into the bag for later.
The coffee on the wall was listed as black or white (none of that fancy espresso stuff here!) and the tea as english breakfast, green or exotic. Easy.
