Elegance and simplicity, inspired by colonial Singaporean heritage, the English House is an institution and a home for people who appreciate an antiquated era of classical food and drink, presented simply as nature intended; orchestrated and conducted by England’s greatest chef Marco Pierre White.
Stilted, symmetrical lines of light lead you into the evening; glimmering candles, intimate shadows, walls embellished with the iconic English greats, immortalized through the eyes of Terry O’Neill.
The English House is the preservation of a golden age; graceful and natural with a whisper of ostentatious eccentricity.

    Staff was very friendly and accommodating, telling us a lot about the history of the place and the collection of MPW. Surprised to see lots of Michelin books and items there, quite amusing. Food was perfectly prepared and cooked. Servings were huge. Didn’t get to eat dessert on account of being so full but it’s a great incentive to come back for more and, hopefully, to meet MPW himself.

    I booked a table for 2 for my birthday. We arrived and received a very relaxing warming greeting. Shown to our table and was informed of the menu and specials. After ordering the food was cooked and received very quickly, whilst the service was good I think due to it not being very busy at the restaurant the service was a bit too attentive. We had not even taken our first bit when interrupted and ask “ how was the food” this happened a further 3 times by 3 different people. However on the whole I thought the experience was exceptional and would come again and have already recommended to all my friends. Well done.

    Food was top notch and Very Impressive. Food Portion was Huge which required sharing with 3 to 5pax. Price is Hefty on the high side. Loved the Glam Ambience.

    Large portions for sharing. Perhaps have smaller portions for one, options especially for lunch. It’s heavy food and very rich and makes sense in a UK country lodge setting but in the tropics it’s tough going. Service is frankly quite shocking . A lot of staff training needed. You need to parachute your training team in. Again. 1. Product knowledge- know your menu, know what you are serving. If don’t know, check. Don’t fudge. Diners may know better what the produce is. There is no such thing as “scampi fish”!! 2. Look to plating. It’s hard to cut large pieces of meat in a bowl. If diners are meant to utilise the plate underneath the bowl, please give guidance. 3. Teach your staff how to serve and clear properly. The waiter almost dropped plates. Very shaky. 4. The Maitre d is smooth talking and tries to be charming and engaging but we would prefer one with more substance then style. Truly helpful and efficient. He should not chastise the staff in front of us. He should try and solve issues. We asked for a missing lunch specials clip on, to the menu. He just took one from one guest and handed to the other guest. We were still one paper short at the table! 5. My sister was stuck in the loo....for 10 mins. No one heard her even though she rapped loudly and called out. I do hope the lock has been fixed. Not sure how the staff smoothed that one over. 6. Although portions are big and meant for sharing, the prices are astronomical for certain dishes. If it’s market price, please guide the guests so there are no surprises. 7. When a guest orders 2 appetizers but indicates one is a main course, please do not bring out both dishes at once! Not only is she out of sync with her fellow diners, she should not be expected to eat 2 courses at once. 8. Know your market please. $100 per bottle corkage is crazy and not likely to attract the custom you would like to target. Hope you survive and improve. Best of luck.

    In a quirky setting, English classics are met with sharing style portions. The lamb was superb as were the desserts. Staff were very attentive but a little unsure of themselves, something I think will only improve as the English house establishes itself on the dining scene in singapore.

    Had the fillet steak special, the meat was incredibly tender and cooked to perfection. Personally enjoying slightly rarer steak, it was not overcooked at all, something that can easily ruin a good piece of meat. Aside from the food, the atmosphere and decor were rich and really added to the experience. I will definitely be coming back here again, if for nothing else but the steak.

    Service was bad right from the time we walked in. Service staff unaware of the specials on the menu for the night. One said they had lobster cocktail & another said they don't have it! 'Then both looked at each other & conversed in Chinese in front of us and then confirmed it was on the menu! Slow to clear table after each course. Empty cocktail glasses remained on the table throughout 2 courses. Sad to see a nice restaurant not professionally managed.
