Customer reviews for Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill Durham
(((** 28 March 2019 by Fred from Sunderland
When we arrived we were told the £50 get £50 voucher had not worked but we were told it did not matter as it was 2 for 1 anyway. We were shown to our table and the surroundings were impressive but one of the knives was dirty, it had paper or something stuck to it.
There was only one dish for vegetarians, Marcos Mac and cheese. For starters there was little choice for vegetarians so we chose the celeriac soup with truffle oil, it's was great, by far the best dish. Next was the Mac which was not very nice at all, the portion was small with not a lot of cheese, when it cooled it coagulated on the plate, it had plenty of time to cool because it took the waiting staff 15 minutes to clear the table even though they all walked past, looked, but did nothing. We had a strawberry bees knees mockberry which was lovely but I'm afraid the quarter of a strawberry stuck on top looked small and lonely, a bit measly really for the cost and the place we were in. Next we had the Panna cotta, we didn't realize it contains gelatin, it was not great, again considering we were in Marco Pierre White's place we expected better. Price was reasonable for two people at £54 but we felt let down, it could and should be so much better.

Food was nice enough but not worth £30 a head. We had a 2:1 voucher which made it more reasonable. Service was mostly good apart from taking 20 mins to bring the correct desser, which was only sorbet! The maitre di was very short with staff in front of us

We dined at the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill Durham as part of our stay at the Hotel Indigo and our meal was excellent. The Roast Rump of Lamb A La Dijonnaise was truly exceptional and well worth the money. The restaurant staff was excellent, in particular Ruth, and they demonstrated a highly professional and knowledgeable attitude during the meal. The setting is outstanding and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Four of us visited Durham MPW's on Saturday 23rd Feb. The ambiance of Durham's MPW's will take some beating, the dining room is just amazing. We were beautifully looked after by Ruth who excelled herself to ensure we had an enjoyable experience, she sure is an asset to MPW's.
Getting down to the food, we all had starters which were delicious. Two of us went for Ribeye Steaks and two went for Burgers; again all delicious with the exception of one steak which was supposed to be medium-well! It was more like rare. It was returned to the kitchen twice! On the 3rd return to the table, pleased to say it was a new steak and cooked to perfection. Ruth was very apologetic and did take the steak off the bill, which tbh was a lovely gesture since our friend ended eating her main course on her own.
We were served a cheese platter which was absolutely lovely. We managed to wash the whole meal down with 4 bottles of wine - more than we'd normally drink but it was very nice anyway.
Overall we had a lovely experience and as I said earlier we had a fabulous waitress in Ruth who managed to keep us all happy throughout the experience.
We are regular visitors to both the Newcastle & Durham MPW's and have to say we always love the dining experience.
