Our story

First opened in 2008 by Marco Pierre White, we have built our reputation on using nothing but the highest quality produce

First opened in 2008 by Marco Pierre White, we have built our reputation on using nothing but the highest quality produce, cooked perfectly and served crisply in casually splendid surroundings.

Open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, you can find us on Middlesex Street, just off bustling Bishopsgate a few yards from Liverpool Street Station. Descending the short flight of stairs to the entrance, you will find a relaxingly elegant British steakhouse dining room, complete  with a stylish cocktail bar and private dining room seating up to 20 people.

Our beef comes from master butchers Aubrey Allen, founded in 1933 and suppliers to the Queen. They select the finest grass-fed cattle, prepare it expertly and dry-age it just for us from the best British herds. We also have an excellent selection grilled and roast meat dishes as well as stunning fish, vegetarian and vegan options, sourced and made to the same exacting standards.

We believe every meal in company should be a celebration.

The Team

Established by a world class team with a longstanding relationship in the restaurant industry.
