When you see Marco Pierre White's name over a restaurant, it immediately encourages positive thoughts and an expectation of great food.
Such a shame then that it appears MPW's name is on everything - in fact, it might as well be hung over a MacDonalds at this rate! This was almost a terrible experience, had it not been for the fact the management tried their best to recover a bad situation.
So what went wrong? Well, the service from the wait staff was non-existant. We waited over half an hour for our orders to be taken. Then an hour for the food to arrive. And when it did, I'd rather wish we had taken our leave earlier and just paid for our drinks. The steak was just so disappointing, being very chewy, over cooked (medium well instead of medium rare) and actually quite tasteless. Chips were greasy and therefore soggy too.
It just isn't what we would expect from a Marco Pierre White named restaurant. Sadly, it just leaves a very poor impression and we can't help but think that this is commercialisation in the very poorest form.
