    Normally this restaurant is excellent but sadly my experience on Wednesday lunch time was very disappointing. Being the final day before shut down it was very busy but front of house staff were extremely efficient. However, I ordered a steak cooked medium but when it eventually arrived it was well over cooked and at the very top end of well done and extremely tough. A replacement steak was provided but even this was on the well done side of medium. Whilst I appreciate the chef would have been under considerable pressure at this busy time it really is inexcusable for basic mistakes such as this to be made. Normally I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant but after this experience I feel reluctant to do so again.

    Absolutely amazing staff food and location We attend very regularly and ALWAYS enjoy the whole experience Just wish it was dog friendly in the bar/lounge area since we have got a dog and miss being able to pop in for a coffee as we walk along the Leas

    Restaurant is in an excellent location. Ambience in eating area is calm creating a nice relaxed atmosphere in which to dine. The dining area is furnished in an up to date style and fits in well with the location being part of an hotel complex. The service is excellent with the staff making you feel welcome and giving you time to ease into the whole eating out experience. We dined here before the Covid crisis, both by ourselves and with friends and always received the care and attention we would expect from a Restaurant bearing the Marco Pierre White name. Importantly the food is always presented well and as we would expect, of the highest quality, resulting in great flavours and aromas. We have continued supporting the Restaurant during the Covid crisis and are impressed with the hotel arrangements with both staff and facilities to keep risk of infection down to a minimum. We have taken advantage of the offers for both the senior citizen lunchtime menu as well as the Afternoon Tea, both of which have been up to the usual high standard and have proved to be excellent value for money. So much so, that many of our friends have also gone along to dine on our recommendation. We wish the Marco Pierre White chain our very best wishes and hope they can survive the Covid-19 crisis and continue to serve us with excellent dining experiences. John and Sue Jones

    Third time eating here and quite frankly - completely ruined my son's birthday. Limited availability of drinks on the menu. Our friends meals were cold & when returned were over cooked. The steak was not the best quality. A dessert was dropped by a server over my friend. The waiter was very apologetic and we could not fault the service. Some recompense was given, but we felt this insufficient - no consideration was given to my friend in regards to her spoilt dress.

    The food was good, but it would have been nice to have had some onion rings with the steak and chips without the extra charge. Table service was very good. It was my husbands birthday, a piece of cake with a candle was brought out to him, with an accompanying Happy Birthday by the staff. I hadn’t asked especially for this, but had mentioned it was his birthday when booking. All in all, we had a nice evening.

    Fantastic value for money. Having been there before the portions didn't seem as large but they were exceptionally busy. I had steak and chips. The steak was a wee bit cold but still delicious, followed by the Messy dessert which was also delicious though I felt guilty about the calories. Hubby had Whitebait followed by chicken and leek pie. This was small but very nice and because it only came with peas he also had a portion of chips. I am loathed to recommend Marco's as it will only get busier but it is a gem and the staff are wonderful.
