WHAT IS THE BACKSTORY OF THE RESTAURANT
The Butcher’s Wife is found in the heart of Belgravia Rd, Athlone. Previously, a popular pizza franchise, the owner, Qudsiya Gangraker, was inspired to grow her business into this new concept, which began to take shape and evolved into this new brand, The Butcher’s Wife.
WHAT IS THE RESTAURANT CONCEPT?
The concept for The Butcher’s Wife began with the idea that the Gangraker family really are butchers, having successfully owned the Pickers Meat brand for many years, and together with their passion to create an establishment that would reflect the family traditions of supplying exceptionally tasty meals, that are value for money and wholesome and nutritious, with generously portioned offerings, The Butcher’s Wife was born.
The TBW name combines with a very on-trend industrial look and feel, bespoke crockery and an interesting range of collectables, work together to create an atmosphere that just oozes casual intimacy.
WHAT IS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE CONCEPT
This is a family who believes in the artisanal concept of supplying and making excellent quality and top-class foods and sauces all produced in house. “WE SELL WHAT WE EAT” is a philosophy that has been part of our core principles. It’s our desire to showcase our finest Pizzas, Pastas & Grills.
WHAT INFLUENCED/ DEFINES THE DÉCOR & STYLE OF THE RESTAURANT
Industrial, historical references to the Athlone area and the butcher profession, with natural hard-working fabrics like denim and wood all combined with simple design, reflected through retro references in furniture design and styles and even the menu paper that has been chosen to support the theme.
