Gladstone Butchery

Gladstone Butchery, Parnell

A local favourite and possibly one of Parnell’s best kept secrets is the eponymous Gladstone Butchery, in Gladstone Road, Parnell. Impeccably tidy, with a charming fit-out and row after row of juicy, fresh cuts this carnivore’s heaven is like stepping back into how a local butcher should be (and once was). Luke, the owner, and his wife Laura lovingly handcraft the pies onsite daily; and when it comes to the many different flavours there is no playing favourites in this family, as Luke tells me proudly “All have their place.” And all sell.

The traditional, slightly elusive Steak and Kidney pie is the obvious choice when in such a nostalgic venue. Golden-topped, rich and full of flavour it reminds me of a delicious, old fashioned casserole. Succulent, with generous sized bites of steak (and kidney), replete with a tasty gravy and peppered with corn, peas and carrots, you’ll be back for more. Although takeaway-only it’s happily situated just over the road from the Parnell Rose Gardens so still manages to offer a pretty pleasant way to spend a lunch hour if you so please.
