    Our guest blogger Elisia Denton recently dined at Marco Pierre White’s Steakhouse Bar & Grill at Nottingham’s Alea Casino…

    The end of summer had arrived rather prematurely for my liking and my friend and I were looking for an evening to cheer us both up. We wanted to treat ourselves to good food, good wine and a bit of something different to finish the evening off. Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill Nottingham and Alea Casino certainly delivered on all parts, under one roof and at the right price.

    Upon arrival we were seated at a comfortably sized table for two and my eyes were immediately drawn to
