Expert review of Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, Bar and Grill
The city’s first big-name celebrity chef has arrived in style at the out-of-town hotel. Take a drink in the lounge bar first (I recommend the passion fruit cosmopolitan) and watch the chefs on screen via the live kitchen feed.
Old Hollywood-style movie spotlights usher you into the deliciously dark restaurant; celebrity caricatures and newspaper cartoons of yesteryear line the walls. Imagine leather tablecloths and individual table lamps: I can envisage Frank Sinatra downing a gin, or a wedding reception from The Godfather.
The emphasis is on great local produce; for me, it has to be a juicy steak and a classic English pud, though I couldn’t resist the white chocolate crème brulée from the table d’hote last time I visited.
Formal and hushed; hotel guests and locals enjoying their dinner and conversation.
Friendly and inconspicuous, wine is topped up discreetly.
Within the Doubletree by Hilton , on the outskirts of Chester (you’ll need a taxi from the city centre).
Á la carte: a little steep but you get plenty of style. The table d’hote menu is very good value (£15.50 dinner, two courses).
