Wednesday, May 23, 2012 - Marco is actually rather pleasant: an enjoyable, if not inexpensive, experience...My Cornish crab couldn't have been fresher and, as any starter should be, was nice and light, with just a few small leaves to inject extra vibrancy. I struggled to choose between honey-roasted pork or venison as a main, and then rather nervously asked for venison to be cooked rare. Most chefs don't believe you, allowing this particular red meat to become pink, at best. But my slices of seared deer, served with an extra of buttered peas, were boldly red.

your comments review this restaurant

Went here with a Groupon voucher (£35 for 2 people eating steak and chips + any pudding + a glass of wine each) as we live round the corner. Weird, footballers' wives style decor (unsurprisingly given the location, ownership and likely clientele) and service was adequate. Food was very good (10oz sirloin and caramelised apple pie) and house wine was fine.

The main gripe I have was a blatant attempt to increase margins by making people buy extra drinks. When we arrived, we were told that our table wasn't ready (when we arrived there were 3 or 4 ready tables for 2) and were told to go to the bar. This happened to everyone who walked in - really shameful and obvious process. Of course, when we sat down it was at one of the tables that was already prepared when we arrived. Shame as everything else (at the Groupon price) was good.

A Girl Has To Eat

A Girl Has To Eat

Monday, February 15, 2010 - With the exception of the foie gras terrine (not bad, but not amazing) and a couple of overcooked sides in the roast chicken dish, the food on the whole was excellent, well executed and beautifully presented. I found the pricing reasonably fair for the calibre of cooking that we had. And the fact that we had this meal on a 50% off special offer made it even better value...The only real drawback I can think of is the setting. It's nicely done, but it's just a touch too sombre to really engage with the diner.
