Hugely popular with a “distinctly middle-aged crowd” who probably equate smartly dressed waiters with quality dining, this buzzing King’s Road branch of Marco Pierre White’s London Steakhouse Co. continues to delivers on its promise. The gleaming, glammed-up backdrop of chandeliers and art-deco flourishes creates a “delightful atmosphere”, while the food veers towards “classic and timeless” – in other words satisfying rather than wildly imaginative. Top-quality, expertly timed steaks are the stars of the show, from an 8oz rump to a massive 24oz Boston chop, with triple-cooked chips and a choice of sauces (perhaps béarnaise or Café de Paris). Familiar starters might bring potted shrimps or spiced pears with goats’ cheese fondant, while “outstanding” cheesecake and Cambridge burnt cream are perennial favourites from the calorific dessert list. “Spot-on” service aims to please, and there are attractive set deals (including a kids’ menu).
