Manchester has no shortage of great places to eat, but here at Alston Bar & Beef we aim to set the bar for meat lovers by serving the best steak the city has to offer. Choose from a selection of 35 day dry-aged steaks, including the Chateaubriand to share or the fillet: a favourite in Manchester.
Our beef is supplied by John Gilmour & Co Ltd, an independent family run business established in 1946 who specialise in the supply of high quality meats, in particular ‘Tweed Valley’ from the Scottish Borders, a nod to our heritage in Scotland.
Their ‘Tweed Valley Beef’ is aged for 35 days so it can achieve the perfect tenderness. J. Gilmour also dry hang their beef using chilled, dehumidified air which removes the moisture and allows the beef to mature for much longer.
Founder John Gilmour believes in the importance of healthy livestock and really buying the best. Every Monday, John attends the St Boswell's livestock market in the Borders, as it is essential to see the cattle before they reach the abattoir.
At Alston Bar & Beef, we believe it’s important to truly understand where each steak has come from. That’s why all J. Gilmour meat comes with detailed information on the farm it came from, the market and abattoir used.
