Food and drinks are always a good choice on a date, especially if you are meeting for the first time and want to break the ice.

THE BUTCHER offers a delicious burger menu, featuring our infamous THE BUTCHER Burger and more extravagant burgers like The Daddy, The Codfather and THE BUTCHER TLV.

The milkshakes are loved by people around Manchester and further afield, and can be made into a boozy version if you need a little Dutch courage, or perhaps just want a little celebratory tipple.

Fancy a light bite before you move onto THE CUBE Live or Putters? Tasty snacks like mozzarella sticks, onion rings, chicken wings and sweet potato fries are also available from THE BUTCHER.

And if you’re feeling extra romantic, why not share a portion of fries with your loved one?


Who doesn’t like a little game of putting?

Putters has been designed to make your date different from the rest, and are great for first daters looking to make it a little less awkward!

At our tech-infused putting experience, you can challenge your date, or friends and family, in groups of up to six people. The virtual course consists of three different nine-hole courses and has animations and audio to keep you entertained all night long.

You will be able to track scores throughout your visit, so it’s perfect for the competitive couples out there!


Always fancied having ago at the popular game THE CUBE? As seen on TV, THE CUBE Live challenges even the most inquisitive of minds with a selection of fun and intense games. From testing your balance to working with your team to navigate THE CUBE, you’re guaranteed to have an amazing time.

When you’re immersed in the excitement of the game, it doesn’t feel as easy as it looks on the big screen. But with the support of your date, and any other teammates, you can put your skills to the test.

It’s a good choice if you want something a little different, and more hands-on, for your next date night.
