STEAKS

The Tontine is very proud to use only Shaws of Lauder Extra-Mature Dry Aged Beef.

After dry ageing for a minimum of 35 days, the butcher selects the finest examples of beef cuts to be transferred to a dedicated maturing room, held at a constant temperature of 2 degrees Celsius and a relative humidity of 10%.  There, whole cuts are matured on the bone for a further 25 days.  Dry ageing for 60 days gives an unprecedented concentration of flavour and tenderness.

All steaks are served with grilled flat mushroom, beef tomato and triple cooked chips

All steaks can be served gluten free and/or dairy free
