Mr. White's English Chophouse opened in Manchester in April 2018 on 2, Canal Street, Manchester.

Located on Canal Street, next to the iconic Velvet Hotel, the restaurant serves classic British cuisine and boasts an extensive drinks list with a fine selection of cocktails, wines, beers and spirits.

Marco's Chophouse gives a nod to tradition and centres on serving succulent cuts of meat from steaks and chops to the finest pies.

Whilst the menu centers on British classics the dishes also introduce a little French flair that epitomises Marco's cooking style.

Food and service were great but I’m not sure the location is right for this type of restaurant. We ate early evening/late afternoon and the restaurant was empty when we walked in. The place was well laid out but just lacked atmosphere. Maybe we were unlucky but when we left at 7pm there were only a few more diners.
We had Pea and Ham soup and Scotch Egg for starters. Steak and Chicken and leek pie for mains. And a cherry and ice cream dessert. The dessert was the only let down. The rest was superb. The soup was probably one of the best I ever tasted. Well done chef.

Very few people in at 7.30pm on a Friday - that says a lot. Three of us went. Food was dull. Ok, but dull. No real finesse in presentation. None of the meals were piping hot - they looked and felt as though the plates of food had waited on the side too long before being served. The staff were nice.

Lovely restaurant tucked away from main area. Pleasant surroundings. Not too busy/noisy. Starter of smoked salmon came with a slice of buttered basic brown bread which was surprising and could have been nicer. Salmon was very nice. Main course of lamb chop was served with a plate fill of peas which could have been cooked a bit longer and tasteless potato which was well presented but crying out for some flavour. All in all a lovely experience where focus seems to be on main parts of dishes and accompaniments neglected. Would rate 5 stars if all parts of meal were as tasty as the meat parts.

We were served by a great waitress. Unfortunately I can’t remember her name but she had full attention and was quick in reacting to our needs. The food was unfortunately not great in terms of taste and presentation. It was not really what I expected.

We were a party of 10 booked for 8.30pm on a Saturday night. As soon as we were seated, the waiter informed us that approximately half the starters and a number of main courses were no longer available. We asked how this could be, and were told the restaurant had been very busy. As it happens, we have eaten at this restaurant on the Saturday night of the Sparkle weekend for the last 10 years. Since the Marco Pierre White take over, this is the third time we have been given the same excuse for non-availablity of sizeable chunks of the menu. It is not rocket science to anticipate the restaurant will be very busy on a Saturday night, especially with it being the Sparkle weekend, and to order in supplies accordingly. The food is okay, and the waiters did their best to compensate for our disappointemnt. But I really think Mr White needs to visit his reataurant and to do a bit of staff development with the chef. This is the only restairant on Canal Street with pretensions to fine dining. Our conclusion after these continuing disappointments is that we would do better in future to go off Canal Stree to dine. On the Sunday we dined at the restaurant in the new Dakota Hotel, paid similar prices for a very much higher quality and better served meal. We won't be back to Mt Whites!

Dear BrainA, Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. As our menu is cooked to order, we cannot simply order in extra for special events. This ensures you as a guest receives the highest quality product we can offer, but sadly does mean during busy times popular items can run out and take time to prepare which would result in an unacceptable wait time for a diner.

Excellent value for a 3 course dinner , I was expecting a high standard of food with the restaurant being owned by Mr White so was a bit surprised by a couple of things that let it down. The starters were ok but nothing outstanding, my duck pate didnt have that much flavour and I found the presentation a bit strange with a few cornichons just sat on the plate. My husbands Sardines on toast was also lacking in some flavour and the prawn cocktail looked really average. We ordered roast beef and fish and chips. The fish and chips was the best meal with tripple cooked chips, the fish just melted in the mouth and the batter was lovely. The roast beef although not pink was very tender. The main thing to let this meal down was the roast potatoes. They were soggy in the middle , didnt taste very nice and I am sure they were frozen. All of us left them. I did mention it to the waiter when he asked if everything was ok and he said he would mention it to the chef but that was it. My husband ordered the roast chicken and it was a massive portion and really tender. The pudding was the best part of the meal for me, Bakewell tart with clotted cream, it was gorgeous. We also ordered sticky toffee pudding which was also very good. Overall if you are looking for a Sunday dinner at a very good price in a nice restaurant I would recommend but just stay clear of the roast potatoes they certainly wouldnt get through the Master chef rounds.

Overall a disappointing experience.

Service whilst friendly was, at times slow.

The starters were okay. However the main course, Lamb Shank was bland. When challenged, this was acknowledged but we were told that the chef was under pressure. there was a large party in, but also many empty tables.

We had a table for two on a Friday night at 8.30pm, apart from a table of six or seven, we ended up being the only ones there. The staff were friendly and attentive but to be fair they weren't rushed off their feet. The food was disappointing, we both had the Coronation Chicken Curry. The chicken was in a very small dish & the rice was in a small metallic ramakin. Not exactly value for money. The desserts were disappointing, I've never had cold Sticky Toffee Pudding with cold sauce and the Bakewell Tart was a very small portion for £7.00. It was a shame because it's a really attractive restaurant in one of the most vibrant parts of Manchester.

Ate here quite a few times when it was just velvet. Booked a table for 9 for a hen party lunch time. When we arrived we were told that we couldn't have the lunch time offer of the £10 course that was advertised on the website. The waitress informed me that that menu was for monday to friday only although that is not stated anywhere on the website. The waitress also informed us of yhe problems with vouchers etc that they are no longer acceptable and again that's not stated on the website so we dicided to leave and eat else where

To offer some clarity to potential diners we would advise that opentable clear shows which offers are available to book and at which times they're available, when making your booking it was done so for our a la carte menu. With regards to the 'vouchers' you claim to have tried to use, these were in fact old paper £10 and £5 notes which are no longer in circulation and were polity declined as they have not been accepted since 2018. Thank you for taking the time to review us.

Dont order wine by the glass, a 250ml glass was nowhere near the amount it should have been, pubs have measured wine glasses but for some reason restaurants can just free pour and RIP customers off. Mentioned it to the staff who didn't care they where breaking trading standards

Dear NathanA, Thank you for taking the time to review Mr. White's English Chophouse, Manchester. Measures are indeed used on the bar in the restaurant as to not use them would breach the weights and measures act. The only time the team will 'free' pour a glass is at the table when a bottle has been ordered. We offer over sized wine glasses which look great and hold more than a pint of liquid so without a measure it would be impossible to guess how much a large glass is.
