The latest Marco Pierre White restaurant opened up right here in Milton Keynes in June and I was thrilled to hear I was invited to be one of the first to try their new afternoon tea menu. I’m a huge afternoon tea lover, which you may have already noticed, so this was a very exciting opportunity to try a new local venue! I’ve been waiting for a decent afternoon tea in Milton Keynes to become available, so I was really looking forward to trying this. Marco Pierre White is the renowned ‘rock star’ chef and top restaurateur so I had high hopes for our afternoon tea, and it did not disappoint.
The Marco Pierre White steakhouse bar and grill restaurant is located inside the football stadium in Bletchley, Milton Keynes alongside the Double Tree by Hilton. It’s location is perhaps a little unusual, but don’t let that put you off. It’s very easy to get to, but I would suggest checking that there is no football game/event on when you book, as it can be difficult to park around there on game days.
The interior of the restaurant is very modern and sleek; the decor is simple yet elegant, with framed photos of Marco hanging on the walls. We were greeted by a very attentive host and seated in the middle of the restaurant. The only disappointing thing I have to say about the restaurant is the lack of windows. I was kind of hoping to be able to see the football pitch, but even a bit of natural light would have been nice.

Overall I would recommend afternoon tea at Marco Pierre White in Milton Keynes as a special treat as the quality is wonderful and the food is delicious and not pretentious. The service was excellent and I think it would be perfect for birthdays or an anniversary.The price is £39.95 for two or £59.95 for two including free flowing Prosecco. However, book and dine before 30th November 2017 and you can and enjoy a 30% saving so it’s just £27.95 for two (or £47.95 for two including the Prosecco)!
