During his cooking show appearances, Marco Pierre White can appear magnificently mean, moody and macho.
It would come as no surprise were he to fillet a contestant’s wonky soufflé with a quick twitch of his Sabatier.
And yet, for all his bad boy image, he can still deliver a dainty, delicate and delicious afternoon tea.
Tea for two
Available seven days a week from noon until 4pm, this offer is for two people to enjoy a splendid afternoon tea for two with the option to add a glass of Bottega sparkling wine each at Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill.
Named after the larger-than-life chef, and decorated with portraits of Marco, this vibrant, colourful restaurant is in the stylish Hotel Indigo on Waterloo Street.
Served on a three tier stand, your afternoon tea will feature a selection of traditional sandwiches, pastries, and freshly baked scones with clotted cream and preserves.
The sandwiches are served on white or granary loaf with unsalted butter. The line up may look a lot like this:
Severn and Wye smoked salmon with light cream cheese
Sliced Wiltshire ham with Colman’s mustard
Sliced cucumber and light cream cheese (V)
Rare roast beef with horseradish
When it comes to pastries, they’ve got you sorted with the likes of macarons, Sachertorte, strawberry & clotted cream cheesecake and carrot cake.
Naturally, a choice of fine tea and herbal infusions by Teapigs or filter coffee is included, and with option two, a glass of Bottega each.
Marco’s Glasgow venture has prompted plenty of comment on review sites. This is what a 5pm customer had to say after her afternoon tea experience:
