After settling into a plush red booth we nibbled warm sourdough and perused the menu. It features classic dishes like baked Camembert, garlic-stuffed chicken Kiev and the Governor’s fish and chips, in addition to the restaurant’s speciality, steak. I started with moreish prawn cocktail while my partner tucked in to crispy devilled whitebait, which boasted a spicy kick. To follow, the waitress recommended the Chateaubriand for two as we wanted a lean cut of meat, and it was a great recommendation. The steak was perfectly cooked, juicy and bursting with flavour. Frites, green salad, peppercorn sauce and a bottle of malbec accompanied the steak, and were all exceptional. Although well satiated from the first two courses, we couldn’t resist the tempting desserts menu. My partner had the cheeseboard, which comprised a great selection of farmhouse cheese, well matched with quince jelly, grapes and crisp breads. Meanwhile, I finished my meal off in style with Eton Mess, which proved heavenly.
The Marco Pierre White Steakhouse certainly delivers on its promise to offer excellently executed clsssics in luxurious surroundings, and at wallet-friendly prices.
