SquareMeal Review of
Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill Syon Park
The flagship restaurant at the Hilton Syon Park is named after the estate’s 18th-century landscaper, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, and its spacious dining room is appropriately pointed up with natural brown and green tones. The kitchen makes use of produce from the gardens for a menu of familiar, accessibly priced Anglo-European classics: starters of sardines on toast or ham hock with pickled vegetables could precede cod with spring cabbage, mint and peas or pork belly with wilted pak choi, carrot and orange purée. There are also traditional grills and patriotic desserts in the mould of Bakewell tart, fruit crumble and sherry trifle. Breakfast is available every day, and you can also take afternoon tea on the terrace with its 180-year-old bonsai tree. Note that Capability is only open for dinner on Friday and Saturday; at other times, head for The Clubhouse.
