Marco Pierre White Steak & Alehouse
The MPW Steak and AlehouseThe MPW Steak and Alehouse was a very good way to spend Sunday lunch. You need to fight your way passed the top end of the market and clothes rails but then you find a calm pleasant space. I especially liked the video log fire. The three course Sunday lunch was excellent - good choice for every course but the beef won out for mains. Slightly surprised the waitress seemed unfamiliar with horseradish sauce, but it arrived OK. One thing - no draught beer/ale, only bottled, but the cocktails looked good.12/05/2013 00:00:00Good business meetingWent to macro Pierre whites for a business lunch and everything was perfect. Very efficient and friendly staff and a really professional feel to the running of the restaurant. The food was excellent and the drink and we had plenty of privacy to connect our meeting. Would certainly go again and recommend to friends and business colleagues.10/05/2013 00:00:00steak nightWent there on a monday night there was a fair amount of people there the service was good the food

All round my Wife's birthday treat was very enjoyable and we eat to much.21/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent 3 course Sunday lunchA variety of options with the 3 course Sunday lunch menu. Excellent South African wine and loved the easy listening music in the background. A must visit!21/04/2013 00:00:00Marco Pierre White Middlesex StreetWe ate at lunch time, our first visit to this chain. Most impressive location, menu and service was excellent. The fine range of real ales on tap was a real bonus and we enjoyed the Timothy Taylors Landlord bitter. A good experience and we will return.11/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent Meal at Marco PierreThe 140z Ribeye steak was amazing. Service was excellent well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable. I definitely would return to try more dishes in this relaxed restaurant.10/04/2013 00:00:00Sunday Lunch HeavenThis hidden gem may be stuck behind a market stall but is so worth it. A great range of choices, beautifully cooked. A perfect lazy Sunday lunch venue.07/04/2013 00:00:00Steak & AleHouse never disappointsThe atmosphere is lively and vibrant, the service is friendly, attentive and efficient, the quality of food and the way it is presented is consistently impressive and value for money (taking advantage of one of Toptable's special offers) is outstanding.27/03/2013 00:00:00Excellent all roundTook my wife for her birthday and was not disappointed at all. Service was superb - just right.
We both had fillet steak and they were perfect - the best we had ever had!
Wine is not ridiculously priced. It is expensive but you pay for what you get and what you get Is excellence.
Perfect for special occasions. Would definitely revisit.23/03/2013 00:00:00Lunch at MPW's Steak and Ale houseNot much of a food blogger but suffice to say the overall experience was a success. The quality of the meat was exceptional and the service was very attentive.
The only comment I would make that is slightly negative is that if you visit during a cold weather snap and you're seated under a window asked to be moved as the windows are draftee.
Would we go back? The answer is a resounding "yes"22/03/2013 00:00:00Fantastic Food... 50% off mains????The food was absolutely fantastic, well cooked and I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Unfortunately we were not offered the 50% off mains and just about managed to get 50% off one of our mains, thankfully the food was so good this didn't ruin the evening but it was disappointing.22/03/2013 00:00:00Great experienceMet with friends to say good bye to a friend and it was great. Good atmosphere, food was excellent as was the wine and service.22/03/2013 00:00:00Business DinnerVery good meal with a high standard of food and service. Ideal for a business dinner and will happily return for both private and business occasions. When we visited, all main courses were half price when you ordered a starter or dessert which meant they were excellent vaue.19/03/2013 00:00:00Great Steaks!It's been a while since I last visited this restaurant and there does appear to have been some changes. Saturday evenings used to be quiet, however there was a buzzing ambience during our visit.
Every food element was excellent. The steaks (rib) were mouth wateringly tasty and cooked to perfection, the smoked salmon starter was the best smoked salmon I have had for some time, even the side orders were fabulous! The dessert wine recommendation to accompany the creme brûlée was perfect.
Food ace, service ace. Can't wait to come back!09/03/2013 00:00:00MPW ?Steak & AlehouseVery good alround i.e. food, service, ambiance and value. Great for business, intimate and family dining.04/03/2013 00:00:00Great Sunday Lunch VenueWe booked the 3 course Sunday lunch and were astounded by the wide choice and great value it offered. The staff are attentive, the wine menu extensive and the food delicious.03/03/2013 00:00:00Another excellent meal at MPW'sThis was our 4th visit to Marco Pierre White's Steak & Alehouse - this time for Saturday lunch (we don't remember it being open for Sat lunch previously). As always, the menu was interesting and varied, the service and ambience were very good and we thoroughly enjoyed a leisurely afternoon with friends.23/02/2013 00:00:00Excellent as always...MPW was excellent as always, with the toptable offer the value was virtually unbeatable!17/02/2013 00:00:00Great night outReally enjoyable, steak was cooked excellently and the deserts were exceptional. Wine a little overpriced, but worth it.16/02/2013 00:00:00Lunch at MPW Steak & AlehouseThis was our first visit to this restaurant. We were made to feel welcomed and escorted to the bar area for drinks while our table was being prepared. The restaurant was very clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and the service very good. All in all a very enjoyable meal!16/02/2013 00:00:00Valentines DinnerI took my girlfriend here on valentines day for a three course meal and the food was amazing. I had prawn cocktail and it was the best prawn cocktail I've tasted with king prawns. She had the Fra Gras and the flavors were on the spot, the only downer was that it didn't come with enough toasted bread.
For mains I had the 10oz Ribeye steak cooked medium and it was divine. She had pork with beans in a brown sauce. Very tasty and the skin on the pork was cooked till crispy. Again the dish did not come with enough sauce so we ordered more.
Lastly for desert I had the Vanilla Panncotta and she had the Creme Brulee, it was perfect because by that course we were both full and the deserts were very nice and light.
Overall it was simply beautiful.14/02/2013 00:00:00Marco PIerre Whites SteakhouseHad an excellent Chateau Briand followed by the Cheeseboard. Food was excellent only fault was it was the steak was a little cold when it arrived.13/02/2013 00:00:00Competent business mealGreat steak and side orders. Bistro environment. Competent.12/02/2013 00:00:00Business Lunch at MPWExcellent value, choice and quality of food in the three course lunch. Perfect for a business lunch, with speedy, efficient and friendly service.12/02/2013 00:00:00Tasty Steak!Although we were one of the first tables to arrive for lunch the restaurant was still atmospheric. I had booked on the 3-course set menu deal at £21.50. Unfortunately when we arrived the menu was different to the one featured on the toptable website. Although my kipper pate was a little bland, the other starters were tasty, especially the cauliflower soup. We all had the steak for main - it was juicy and cooked perfectly. The onion rings are a must - they have a really crunchy coating and just delicious. We all picked different desserts so we could try them all - all equally yummy. With 2 bottles of wine, a bottle of water and 3 sides to share, it was £50 pp. I would definitely visit again... the onion rings are already calling me!09/02/2013 00:00:00Make your own judgement but goodI read all the reviews after I booked and was a little concerned. I didn't need to be! I booked at 6:30 table on a Friday. We had an excellent time. Nice room, friendly staff the only small mistake was they put red wine in the white wine glass but the wine was so lovely I could forgive that :-). We had starters main course and dessert all fantastic. For main I had liver and I have to say its the best I have ever had yum. It was not overly pretentious so that was nice. Overall great time thanks.08/02/2013 00:00:00Love Love Love MPWFantastic service from booking to bill. Great food, great value, great location. Can't recommend this place enough and loved it so much am going back on Sunday.07/02/2013 00:00:00Excellent foodFantastic steaks and out of this world triple cooked chips. Excellent service, attentive staff always ready to top up your wine glass without being intrusive. A little on the pricy side for everyday dining out but with the Top Table offer of 50% off mains when ordering 2 course it makes it more affordable.06/02/2013 00:00:00PerfectTook my cousin for his 40th B'day for dinner. We had the 3 courses set menu which was so nice. food was really good and the service was excellent. The staff are friendly and made it very special for us.21/01/2013 16:00:00Great 18th celebrationFood and service both excellent. Steaks absolutely delicious and cooked just right. Recommend the Rib-eye which was really flavourful - we were celebrating an 18th birthday meaning we were mixed ages including a 15 year old vegetarian (she didn't like the veggie option so something special was prepared for her) - every member of the party loved the experience.
The half price main course made it good value especially for the person paying the bill!
Will go back and will recommend17/01/2013 16:00:00Great SteakTook my team here for late lunch. The place was very busy and had a loud but pleasant atmosphere. Food and drink value were reasonable. The standout dish was the ribeye steak. It was the best I have had stood up against some of the other London steakhouses. I would go again.18/12/2012 16:00:00Great Christmas Set MenuBooked through toptable for the Christmas set menu. Great value and had a great time.18/12/2012 16:00:00Our team lunchWe had a Christmas team lunch for 14, the food choice was very good and the food itself was great. The service was also very good!17/12/2012 16:00:00Pre-Christmas FunThis was a great choice for our office Christmas lunch. Fantastic food (the steak was excellent), great cocktails, great atmosphere, relaxed and fun at the same time. We all enjoyed it and would definitely come back again.17/12/2012 16:00:00Very goodVery good food and service - a very enjoyable evening. They wanted to charge me for cancelling a couple of attendees a few days before, saying that it was in their terms and conditions that they would do so. Problem is, when you book through Toptable, you don't see their terms and conditions. They didn't charge me in the end, so all ok.17/12/2012 00:00:00Good value meal on Toptable offerVery good sized portions on all three meals, attentive and friendly staff, delightful ambience on a cold wet evening.16/12/2012 16:00:00Very nice placeBooked the restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. Got a 50% off main meals deal with the booking through toptable. We arrived about 20 min early but were shown to our table after our coats were taken. The meal choices are not wide but that was no problem as sometimes its better when the restaurant concentrates on a few dishes. Our table ordered the Gammon, Pork Belly and Chicken, all were very tasty. The Triple Cooked Chips were chunky and tasty as were the onion rings. Puddings were lovely. Service was great as waiters arrived when required and at no other time. At no time did we feel rushed or harassed. The place was quiet and we could talk without shouting. We gladly paid the tip portion of the bill. All in all a lovely night.16/12/2012 16:00:00Excellent food, they wereExcellent food, they were very busy and service was a bit slow and forgetful but they were friendly and apologetic and it would not put us off going back. We did a top table deal which made this very good value.
We would highly recommend this for foodies, couples, groups and we would definitely go back.23/11/2012 00:00:00Must go againEverything about it was fantastic and would definitely recommend it to others. Attentive and friendly staff served delicious food and the overall experience was lovely.17/11/2012 00:00:00First time diner - not disappointedI booked this restaurant for myself and a friend who is used to top class restaurants. I had not been here before but the evening was a great success and we were both really impressed. We had the '50% off food offer' which was very good value. The steaks were cooked to perfection (as you would expect), but if I visited again I would share the fries as they are very chunky and very filling. Nice wine list too. The restaurant is below street level which gives it a cosy atmosphere, although it's quite an open plan room so not many nooks and crannies for a romantic private meal. Overall I would recommend and intend to visit again.15/11/2012 00:00:00Steak HouseGood steak but leave space for some of the heavier desserts07/11/2012 16:00:00Cartoons revisitedNot the first or the last time I have visited this excellent restaurant. Great value with the fixed menu, with excellent service. All washed down with a selection of superb framed cartoons! Get there.08/10/2012 16:00:00Even the vegan liked it!I booked a table for 20 of us and we were given the private dining area, which was the perfect size. The chateaubriand was very tender and delicious but not the very best, though the sides were spot on. With the two course deal this was great value, and they even decanted our house red, which was a nice touch. Everyone enjoyed their meal, even the vegan and we will return. Only gripe is that we were there 2hours before we started our main course.08/10/2012 00:00:00MeatyReally enjoyed dining here. I had salmon to start and lamb for my main. It was delightful. I wouldn't have dined without the special offer as it works out to be quite pricey11/09/2012 00:00:00Birthday dinnerTook my daughter for a birthday treat -excellent food and service. They unexpectedly prepared dessert with happy birthday written in chocolate on the the plate which was a nice touch. Book using the 50% discount voucher - well worth using otherwise would have been very pricey!06/09/2012 00:00:00Thoroughly enjoyableWe took our daughter and her partner there and they were very impressed with the food and service. We have dined there before and food the meat dishes delicious. The steaks being particularly tender - the best I have ever tasted. 50% off the mains was a good discount. One thing that we found that was unfortunate was that the time clocks on the walls showing times around the world were not working as they had all stopped! What a shame. It would only take a couple of new batteries and would have been a good feature and talking point!19/08/2012 16:00:00Good for GroupsTook family friends out for a treat on the Toptable offer. Everyone enjoyed all 3 courses and the waitresses were very helpful. Have already been here a few times on the same offer, so I hope it continues!09/05/2012 00:00:00Took 4 family friends outTook 4 family friends out to Marco Pierre White Steak & Alehouse for a treat which was easy on the pocket. It cost just over what it would cost for 2 people on the a la carte. 3 of us shared one bottle of wine and one of us had a beer. Starter & main courses were good (soup, rabbit, asparagus, pork belly, calves' liver, fish & chips). Creme Brulee was renamed Cambridge Burnt Cream!! Pannacotta was not light enough. Still, my friends said it was the nicest meal they had had in a while. :-)08/05/2012 16:00:00absolutely lovely food, niceabsolutely lovely food, nice setting ... a little stuffy if anything but a really lovely evening05/05/2012 00:00:00
