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.

The place itself is very nice, below the Velvet bar on Canal Street. However, service was slow despite the restaurant being half empty. Had the Duck Rillett starter which was ok but too much. Then had the T Bone Steak. Nothing special, had the snails and garlic with it which were tasteless. However the drinks were good and the venue itself really nice. Perhaps just had the wrong things off the menu.

We’ve dined in this restaurant many times before it changed hands. However, although the service from Hugo was impeccable, the lack of customers brought the atmosphere down considerably. We still had a lovely Anniversary meal & the revamp looks great.

We had a great meal at the Canal Street restaurant. The service was excellent. Attentive staff, great atmosphere and good food.
The burger was a little disappointing, bland and rather small but everything else was superb.
We would definitely visit again.

I'm afraid I was disappointed. Friends had suggested that I'd like the place, the food and the prices. I didn't like the location particularly - the overtly gay males hanging around outside were a little off-putting - the food was reasonable, but the prices didn't meet my (Scottish) wife's value for money test. I wanted to like the place, but I'm sorry to say that I didn't. It was, as we say in Cheshire, "nowt" special, particularly given the prices involved. Maybe I'm just getting old, but £50+ for two persons (two courses and drinks) was a bit steep.

Warming Welcome upon arrival - seated in the Corner with my Wife and waited on straight away to ensure everything was in order. Food and drinks were to die for; the Steak was succulent and cooked to exactly what I wanted! The triple cooked chips were the best around! The Bar/Eating Area was decorated tastefully and lighting was dark to create a romantic environment!

I booked Mr White's English Chophouse for my partners birthday and was very dissapointed with our experience. Considering the restaurant was not busy at all, the service in some parts was slow. There was an hour gap between our starter and main course, and it took some time to get the attention of the waiting staff for our bill. When we were seated, we were told that all the burgers were sold out. My partner was dissapointed as this was what she had planned to order. However, my partner chose the duck as her second choice. After we had finished our starter, the waitress informed us that they had now sold out of the duck too, which was frustrating as now my partner had to order something she didn't really want to eat. As an apology a discount was taken off our bill, however they only took off 10% of the food price, they didn't offer any discount off drinks and it was hardly worth the discount when they only took off £6 of the £80 bill. I would not return here for a special occasion because it did not live up to our expectations. For somewhere with a price tag like that, we would expect high quality service and a fully stocked menu.

My wife didn’t care for any of the starters as she likes a soup or prawn cocktail dish . But she did say that the fillet steak was the nicest she has ever had . I had the scallops and they were fantastic .
Good friendly service reasonably priced for city centre location .
Altogether a very enjoyable evening . Thanks

Took my sister here for a birthday dinner for a 21st.
All the staff welcomed her with a happy birthday (she was wearing a badge) on arrival and they were absolutely lovely.
She even got a birthday candle in her dessert brownie.
The staff were amazing. Checked if everything was ok and if they could do anything for us too. They made us feel very welcome.

Food was beautiful. This is the second time I’ve been here and I will definitely be back again.

Refurbished restaurant is very nice and service was good if not a bit style over knowledge. The steaks were good and my friend enjoyed her rib starter. However calamari starter average at best and massively overpriced for what it was and duck starter that a friend had was awful and again v overpriced. Probably won't go back and don't mind paying the price if I think I'm getting value for money but in this instance I felt it wasn't worth it and the wine was nothing to shout about either.

first time at this restraunt and wont be the last, you feel relaxed and at ease as soon as you enter the restraunt.
The service was great staff was friendly and happy to help with any questions, the food was very good in fact we couldnt find a fault (which is rare for us) scallops was cooked as they should be as was the T Bone steak. I really hope the standards stay as they are far to many new restraunts start well but for some reason seem to go down hill. THANKS for a lovely meal!!!!

There was 40% off which made it tolerable. Just really average in every single way. Considering the amount of other places to dine in the city, I wouldn’t recommend to anyone. They didn’t do anything really wrong, just did nothing really right either. Plus forgot to take the croutons from my salad which really spoiled it. If you want this kind of dining, the Albert or Thomas ChopHouses are far better. Even 1761 is a similar but far better option.

Went for a special occasion and had amazing food and drink all night. Spent about 2 hours 45 mins here over three courses and did not feel rushed and didn't feel like we waited particularly long for anything. Steak was fantastic. Very polite staff who catered for our needs all evening. The bill was pretty steep at the end but I was expecting it to be a big one anyway so it wasn't too bad. Would recommend for a date or a special occasion.

Was attracted by the 40% off the al la carte which was available when I had to be in Manchester for work on a quiet Tuesday night. Girls serving were very friendly and the food was good, I had the duck and it was a good size and moist. Shame the offer is only during August. The NZ pinot noir went really well with the duck as well. Nicely fitted out restaurant under the Velvet Hotel.

we celebrated our wedding anniversary here, food was great, especially the T-Bone steak, cooked exceptionally well and perfectly juicy and tender. Starters were great, my wife's lamb rump was also really nice, shame about the stone cold potato gratin side dish served with the lamb, think the chef didn't bake this for long enough. we did mention this to the waitress at the time, she said the comments will be passed back to the chef.
8/10 score
Will be back for more especially the T-bone steak :-)

Being a Marco Pierre Restaurant - I did have high expectations when booking this restaurant, I went with the intention of having a three course meal and I know that's not the cheapest of nights..... however there were a number of issues that occurred throughout my stay that made me incredibly happy that I have booked on a day where there was 40% off of the food menu. I had scallops to start which were not cleaned properly - they were gristly, over cooked and gritty. I shared a Chateaubriand which was delicious but minimal, my date and I were both left hungry after the two courses. The dessert was ok, the wine choice was excellent, the ambiance is good. The lady who served us had to deal with the kitchen being slow, which you could tell was an ongoing issue. I went on a Monday and spent nearly three hours in the restaurant.... I'm not sure how the kitchen would handle a Saturday.

Overall - I think the kitchen has a lot of work to do. I might return but maybe once its established itself a little more and I've gotten over the scallop issue.
