Marco Pierre White to open new steakhouse in Folkestone

Renowned chef and restaurateur, Marco Pierre White (MPW), is bringing his popular Steakhouse Bar & Grill to Folkestone.

Located at the Clifton Hotel in Folkestone, the restaurant is due to open in summer 2018. The 82-cover restaurant is set to become a must-visit for local food lovers and hotel guests. The Steakhouse Bar & Grill opens out into a wonderfully light conservatory area. Diners can expect signature MPW steaks, timeless English and French classics, and a comprehensive selection of premium cocktails, all delivered with Marco’s unique flair.

The Steakhouse Bar & Grill menu is exclusively curated by Marco himself. To suit all tastes, it will include a mix of childhood favourites and modern day delicacies – ranging from Classic Prawn Cocktail and Shepherd’s Pie, to Freshly Dressed Crab and a selection of 35-day aged native breed steaks, including the ever popular Chateaubriand dish. Marco’s ethos is all about classic dishes, simply cooked using the best locally sourced ingredients.

Marco, once the youngest chef to hold three Michelin stars, said: “I’m delighted to be bringing my Steakhouse to Folkestone.

“My restaurants are not stuffy and pretentious, instead they are about enjoying your evening, with great food and drink in relaxed surroundings and quite simply having a good time. The menu is all about classic, recognisable dishes, cooked simply using the finest ingredients to deliver delicious food.

“Delicious food, generous portions and great service; all delivered in a relaxed, welcoming setting is what our guests in Folkestone can expect.  There’s something to suit every taste and budget on the menu. I call it affordable glamour and we hope it’s an experience our guests will want to return to again and again.”

Nick Taplin, CEO of Black & White Hospitality, said: “We are extremely proud that Folkstone will be home to our first Steakhouse in the South East. The team are very much looking forward to bringing something completely different to Folkestone’s food scene.”

Mr K. Rajamenon, Managing Director at Clifton Hotel said: “We have always wanted to be able to offer high quality food and beverage at our hotel and couldn’t be more excited to welcome Marco and his team to the South East. We very much look forward to welcoming our first guests in the near future.”

The traditional Victorian style Clifton Hotel, Folkestone dates back to 1864 and offers spectacular views of the English Channel. Nestled in the centre of the famous Leas, its 80 bedrooms provide either stunning sea views or quaint garden sights.
