    Delicious main course and sides, I even enjoyed the broccoli and cabbage. The steak and ribs were beautifully cooked but the dessert was a disappointment. As I don't like nuts in puddings I avoided my usual favourite, a brownie, and chose the lemon tart instead. Somehow the pastry was both sweaty and chewy at the same time, Mary Berry would not have been impressed. However, the level of service was excellent, the ambiance was great, the main meal was highly enjoyable so I won't be put off by a little soggy bottom.

    Arrived at middletons for my husbands birthday meal 8pm Saturday, we thought the setting was very nice and a nice welcome, our starter was very nice, recommend the crayfish cocktail, but we felt let down with our main meal, we literally had just put our knife and fork down from finishing our starter and the waitress was standing there with our main meal, the waitress had no where to put our plates, it made us feel very rushed, we wanted to enjoy are evening not feel pushed out the door in a rush, and then unfortunately our side order of onion rings was swimming in oil, which we sent back, apart from this the food was very nice, not sure if we would return though.

    Very nice interior. We sat upstairs overlooking the ground floor with good visibility of the busy kitchens below. Prices were more reasonable than we were expecting. Service was prompt, but when questioned on one of the sauces in my partner's dish the waitress (who was very polite) couldn't answer it. There was also a little mishap with one of the source pots which ended up on my girlfriends lap when being cleared away...luckily it was fairly empty and there wasn't any real damage done. The food was delicious! I tried lobster for the first time ever, expecting it to be messy, but it was all prepared to make the eating experience more enjoyable. My partner had steak and said it was cooked perfectly. We will return one day I'm sure.

    Well this was our 3rd visit to Middletons and once again the Foods was excellent, the service was friendly and informative and there's always a vibrant atmosphere going on. All age groups are catered for and we'd recommend you visit especially if you have teenage children. One word of advice is to book early otherwise you won't get a table as it's always busy because it's so good. Enjoy!!

    We were hoping to enjoy a nice meal for a work colleague leaving the buiness after 25 years.We ordered champagne to start, all was fine up to this point, but on ordering our food and then wishing to order wine we were quite abruptly told we had already had the wine list. Reading from the list of side orders also seemed to be a problem for the waiter who tutted & gestured to us where we could find it ourselves on the menu. Post desserts & coffees,which one diner dared to ask for complimentary chocolates & was told some of the desserts have chocolate in them, we were given the bill & it was pretty clear we were now to leave ! Shame is the food & wine was very good indeed but your waiter let you down & spoilt the whole experience.

    The Carvery was tasty, but only enough to fill the belly of a mouse, where are the pigs in blankets ? Parsnips? Stuffing ? Mashed swede? One small slice of each of beef & lamb ? Come on Middletons, sort it out. Won't go back for a Carvery that's for sure.

    This has always been a favourite restaurant that the whole of my family love. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is very buzzy, casual enough to feel relaxed but still with high standards. It is now getting very popular so you definitely need to book in advance. The staff make you feel at home and are very attentive. You won t be disappointed

    Lovely food and atmosphere! Not to sure why there was a rat in my steak, but equally it tasted very scummy! My daughter had an allergic reaction to the sweet potato fries, but all is well she is recovering in hospital, just about to go in for a c-section. We are all very proud of her! my chicken was amazing as finally someone left it nice and pink in the middle. My son fell down the toilet as he is only 3 months old, he made a speedy recovery when he was released from the sewers last week.

    Being a vegetarian, I find it difficult to eat out at most restaurants as often priority is taken over non-vegetarian meals. Most places will bung a veggie meal in the microwave= dry and tasteless. I booked for my boyfriend's 18th as he's a big meat eater despite being slightly concerned at first due to my previous experiences in restaurants of vegetarian options, however I was utterly surprised. Not only was his steak, ribs and chicken delicious and fresh...but as was my macaroni cheese. I felt like I wasn't excluded and my meal was also considered as equally important. The service made it even better as no judgement seem to be made when I ordered the veggie option in a steak house! Excellent food and experience.

    Dined on 7/10/2014
    Lots of friends have raved about Middletons so I booked a table for my partner's birthday. The atmosphere was lovely, service great and the food...amazing!! Steak cooked perfectly to my liking, the chicken was so tender and not at all dry! And the ribs just fell off the bone - I had the middletons grill. The garlic bread was just right and not at all greasy. My partner had steak & sticky; his was cooked just as perfectly. The quality (and portion size) of the food is totally worth the pricing; although for my partner and I it is a 'special occasion' restaurant, we would not be able to afford to go as often as we'd like. Overall great meal!

    Dined on 5/10/2014
    Have now been here three times, twice with work and once with my wife, and the food has been outstanding on each occasion. I'm amazed at the ability of the chefs to get every meat order spot on in terms of everyone's individual cooking preference. The starters are also amazing and I can recommend the bucket of whitebait or the crayfish cocktail. Meals are served on boards, but if hygene concerns you simply ask for a plate. A lot of the seating gives you some sort of view of the kitchen via the large serving hatch, so you can see how hard those guys work cooking all that stuff to order. The staff are always attentive and friendly and overall Middletons is one of the first places I think of when recommending eating places in Norwich.

    My husband and I were looking forward to going to middletons as had been recommended by lots of people for a long while.we had a lovely waitress to begin with polite and had banter with us.food was quick and was nice wasn't mind blowing but fine.we had been given our desserts and coffee and then told we had 15mins to be out which I thought wasn't very good few mins later I was asked by the waitress to hurry up eating my dessert then we paid for our meal which waitress rushed and seemed like she really wanted to hurry us up.whem my husband mentioned it wasn't very good to be told we had 15 mins to get out she ignored us.i complained to the manager and she wasn't interested either not interested in customer satisfaction just the next table

    It was first time there, and we were with another couple, who's first time it was also. We all agread the food was fab, infact, I can honestly say it was the best fillet steak i have ever eaten and I am 48 yrs old and eat our alot. We regularly eat out in Norwich and Iwe will now make Middletons a regular, having recently beenm let down by the Library grill. However, the one negative comment I would make is that the young man who was our waiter, was arrogant and a little self indulgent when talking about himself and the version of Strawberry Woo Woo he came up with, it was done in a less than courteous way. If we go again, all for of us and the table of strangers near us hope we don't have him as our server again.

    Often have reservations about specialised restaurants and especially steakhouses as I've had so many bad experiences of chewy steaks so tend to steer clear but as it was my husband's birthday and he loves steaks I thought it would be nice for him. With trepidation I did choose the surf & turf and I was not disappointed. The steak was superb - it's the best bought steak I've ever had! My husband is a steak connoisseur and he said it was one of the best he's had too!! Ambience was buzzy. The only feedback we would have is butter that would spread and being told what the breads were as the starter. We will definitely be back though. We are sorry that's it taken so long for us to have our first visit.

    Dined on 1/10/2014
    I have been to Middletons several times however this time I was a bit disappointed. My partner & I both ordered the same size & cut steak & cooked medium however when they came out mine had blood on top & as soon as I cut into it blood would seep out however my partners was barely red inside so there was a big difference in how the steaks were cooked. Also my piece of steak had a large bit of fat all down one side. Also the waiter placed our food on someone else's table & one of them started to eat the chips before the waiter realised he'd made a mistake & then moved the food onto our table. They did replace my partners chips however I still felt uncomfortable knowing someone else had my food & my chips weren't replaced.
