Roast beef the star attraction as Butchers’ Carvery Lunch returns

Published on: 27 September 2019

The famous Carvery Lunch from the Worshipful Company of Butchers made a triumphant return to Butchers’ Hall on 25th September, with Liverymen, Freeman and guests enjoying a wonderful three-course lunch, with dry aged roast beef supplied by Aubrey Allen.

The Master, Tim Dumenil welcomed diners as they sampled the wonderful surroundings of our refurbished Livery Hall.

Immediate Paster Master, Graham Baker commented: “It was great to see the carvery lunches going again. I have lost count of the number of people in my year as Master who asked when will they be starting again. There is something special about roast beef in Butchers’ Hall.”

The beef was the star attraction of course, which had been stored and dry aged in the open fronted display fridge in the lead-up to the lunch. Next time you’re in Butchers’ Hall, look out for what’s coming next.
