If I paid 25 quid for a steak, here or in Blighty, I'd want it to be fucking amazing.

For that price I can get one of these:

and have some change

the problem I found is that I had to abandon the sides towards the end to enable me to polish off the steak.  It probably did not help that I had gone for a cup of chilli as the starter.

A fillet in La Carbonara is the best steak I've had in Swindon

That was what I was expecting, hence my disapointment.  I have had expensive steaks all over the place, including the US which you kinda get why they were so expensive..  I didn't get that thought with my steak at M&C..  The Beef Dripping sauce on the other hand..

You would expect if you have the most expensive steak on the menu for it to be pretty special, it wasn't..

Thanks all, I've gone the dependable route of Italian in the end.

Went to Miller & Carter, had the Rib Eye which is 25.  It was alright, but not a 25 steak.  I might have had it on a bad night for them though...

However, the beef dripping steak sauce is mental, and worth the 25 alone...  Really good, make sure you have that and you will not be disapointed..
