About McKenzie’s in the City
A place where the beautiful old Corn Exchange building is allowed to shine and be. The products that we source are from suppliers that have an interest in producing the highest quality and then caring for it in a way that helps us bring the best products to your table. We serve cattle steaks that have been reared with beef production in mind, therefore the right type of bred and fresh farm land and water to maximums grazing and a great marbling of fat content. We then looked closer at our none steak offering and have partnered with Sands Fish Merchants to bring you the freshness of the sea to the centre of England. We operate a completely fresh kitchen which enables us to bring you substitutes and adaptations to allow for safe decisions when dining with us if you have food allergies or intolerances. We cater for Vegetarians and Vegans.
It is also a great venue for entertainment and live Jazz to allow the weekend to come to a gentle close is a regular feature at McKenzie's so follow us on Facebook to see upcoming events and more details.
The building is such an amazing space so join us to relax and unwind. The comment below is the mission statement of what McKenzie's Restaurant is:
"We know that the sacrifices and heart that comes from operating on our own. We also understand that our guests have busy lives and that when they come to us they want to enjoy a place that provides great service and quality products, as they work hard and deserve to have a place to feel safe and assured of a great time.Therefore we partner and work with like minded people to bring you the experience that in some cases money can not afford to buy. It comes from within and the heart - it is honest and true hospitality everyday.”

This was our first time visiting McKenzies and we absolutely loved it! The service was absolutely incredible (our waitress was Amy and she was WONDERFUL!), the food was gorgeous and it was a lovely atmosphere. A perfect night, thank you!
First visit and a little disappointing. Couples sat close to large groups at tables for 4. Not very intimate or romantic. Staff openly admitted they were understaffed. Our waitress was lovely and friendly but clearly doing everything with no support. Plates were whipped away after each course leaving us feeling rushed and not offered coffees. Starter was poor very little mozzarella in the balls, steak was great though.
The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere, and is nicely decorated but its seemed that they were under staffed as it took over an hour for me and bf to get our food. The steak is apparently nice but I had the gammon and wasnt thrilled by it. The waitress only apologised right at the end for the wait when we were paying
Restaurant cold, not very clean, under staffed. Food wasn’t very good and definitely not value for money. Wouldn’t recommend anyone to pay a visit, very disappointing. The only good thing was the coffee.
Lovely choice to f foood and the set lunch menu is varied and very good value for money. Food is homecooked. My husband ordered the crumble which was straight out if the oven and delicious. Staff are friendly and attentive. We have already booked again.
Though I have put 5 stars on the service when my food was bought out it was completely wrong I had asked for a ham omelette with no cheese and a side said with no dressing. I had to send it back as they had put dressing on the salad and cheese on the omelette. My friend then ordered a sticky toffee pudding with custard and it was bought out with ice-cream. The server was very happy to change our orders to the ones we had asked for, and it seemed that the chief had not listen to her when place the order. I do not know if this is correct and I do feel that the service is worth 5 stars, but be careful in future someone could be more annoyed with the lack of correct order placed. We did have a lovely time and we would come back! Thank you
A wide choice of starters, mains and deserts. The only downfall was that the plates could have been warmer to keep the food warmer too. They put a candle on my Mom's desert and sang happy birthday to her which was a nice touch.
We had afternoon tea and it was great; a decent variety of options and friendly staff with excellent service.
Please stock Quartz beer again.
Although we were at an early sitting on a cold January night, the atmosphere was stil good and the service excellent. The restaurant itself is fantastic being set over two levels - one positive for me as I wear hearing aids is that the acoustics are good. So, the Sunday late afternoon live music session is really enjoyable.
Fantastic evening and food. Thank you.
We had a great meal (no starter / pud) - cut straight to the steaks which are fantastic McKenzie's are probably the best round here at having quality steaks served properly (we had 3 different varieties between four of us). In retrospect the T-bone was probably slightly too rare as a medium-rare, but it all got eaten. Chips and salad very tasty too. We were seated on the balcony and despite a large group downstairs the service was amazing - no delays or quality issues and there was plenty of helpful staff.
Live music was lovely.
Nice food, nice people, always a plaisant moment at McKenzies restaurant.
Always excellent food and service. Mark and his staff make us feel welcome from the moment we walk in. There is plenty of selection on the menu that there is something for everyone. The staff are knowledgeable about the menu and are helpful and friendly. The perfect place for steaks (and other food). I can't wait to visit again.
Never had a bad meal. The team were all great with my 7 year old and took time to listen to him etc. Will definitely go back. I think good value for money especially as food is high quality.
Thank you for making our evening a time to remember. Both the food and service were first class, the atmosphere was excellent too and a pianist playing the piano really made this a special occasion. The staff did us proud and all members of my group really enjoyed the food, service and company. Thank you and see you again soon.
We had a most enjoyable family evening meal. The quality of the food was outstanding and was cooked to perfection. The service was very efficient and friendly, we were made to feel most welcome and relaxed. We shall definitely be returning.
We held our annual company Christmas party here, for the second year running! Once again, a fantastic treat for the team. From the moment of booking our large party, we were assured of a fabulous evening of good food, wine and service. The pre-order booking system was simple to use and everyone received the food they ordered. We were not disappointed! Mark and his team did us proud and we will be returning!
Service was very efficient and very good. It’s only my second visit and won’t be my last. Food was perfect. Absolutely nothing bad to say.
Eaten here 3 times now and this is one of my favourite restaurants, service and food is always very good and cant fault anything, the price is also very reasonable. Would recommend this place to the end of the world, really love it here.
All 6 of us enjoyed every mouthful of our meals and desserts. The service was super too. Nothing was too much trouble and the atmosphere was great! Thank you team Mckenzie!
The service was very friendly & efficient , the venue was very nice
Food was delicious. Service excellent .
Chairs could do with a facelift, many were stained. Lights could be dimmed more when eating.staff were very friendly and attentive Loved the upstairs seating area. Would liketo see more choice of desserts.
