Warmth and Welcoming Ambience

Beyond Two Fats’ cuisine, what truly sets The Buttery apart is its warm and welcoming ambience. The staff’s friendly demeanour and genuine passion for hospitality create an inviting atmosphere that makes you feel like a cherished guest rather than a customer. Whether you’re a solo traveller, a couple seeking a romantic lunch, or a group of friends looking for a memorable meal, the restaurant’s ambience embraces everyone from the minute they walk in and makes each visit something truly special.

Two courses start at £28, and three for only £35. This is one way to experience the delight of The Buttery on a   budget. We run our lunchtime and early evening set menu every day that we are open, but please be aware that times change depending on which day it is. Whenever you decide to visit, you will be graced with a delightful menu, filled with many   Buttery favourites. We can see why our guests think this is one of the city’s best lunchtime offerings.
