Square Meal Review of Marco Pierre White Steak & Alehouse ?

Everything seems fine on paper – a big-name chef, well-sourced steaks and a cracking drinks list – but it appears that foodies haven’t quite forgiven Marco Pierre White for handing back his Michelin stars then jumping into bed with a stock-cube manufacturer. The City branch of his Steak & Alehouse mini chain may be a sleek, smart spot with crisp white tablecloths and cheery, light decor, but negative comments abound: “disappointing”, “overpriced” and “slow service” tell their own story, although one reader described his asparagus hollandaise as “the best I have ever eaten”. The steak menu is a banker, too, with its offer of a Champagne cocktail to start, ahead of, say, kipper pâté, a 10oz rump with béarnaise sauce, and Bakewell tart for afters – all for under £40 a head. Draught ale fans are well served and there’s also a wide-ranging wine list.

    Eating London :: Marco Pierre White Steak & Alehouse

    So, on the week we say a sad farewell to my favourite chef of all time, the late, great Charlie Trotter, and on a happier note, we also see Jamie Oliver accept his Honorary Fellowship from the RCGP for his work on childhood nutrition, I turn my eyes, stomach & pen to another celebrity chef: Marco Pierre White. So, first off, let me say, my husband loves steak. I repeat, my husband LOVES steak. So when I wanted to treat him to a special meal out, I thought “Marco Pierre White Steak & Alehouse – how could I go wrong?”...

Marco Pierre White

The tousle-haired firebrand & enfant terrible of the 1980s restaurant scene is in resurgent form these days. Marco Pierre White's TV career is on the up, thanks to his appearances as front man on Hell's Kitchen in 2007, followed by Marco's Great British Feast a year later; further shows, including Kitchen Burnout are in the pipeline. The first British chef to be awarded three Michelin stars, he has worked for some of the godfathers of British cooking; Albert Roux, Pierre Koffmann & Raymond Blanc. In 1987 he opened Harvey's, a culinary stud farm that produced Gordon Ramsay & Philip Howard among others, & won two Michelin stars. After relocating to Le Meridien Piccadilly he gained a third star before hanging up his whites in 1999. He owns a clutch of restaurants, including The Criterion, his Frankie's chain of Italian pizzerias (run in partnership with jockey Frankie Dettori), & Marco, which opened in Chelsea's Stamford Bridge football stadium in 2007. He is also expanding his gastropub portfolio outside the capital.
