Food was delicious but found service disappointing & gentleman’s toilets were disgusting, not what you expect.

Food - overall really good. Steaks were cooked well & sides were nice. There was very little avocado in the prawn cocktail- which was disappointing.

Service - a bit haphazard. The very young boy who was our waiter did not appear to have been trained very well & assumed when we ordered a bottle of red wine that everyone was drinking that - in fact we also wanted a bottle of white & had to call him back.

Disappointed to find that the creme brûlée had run out & the coffee machine was broken.

Overall though the staff were pleasant and the food was good. Will definitely return.

As we’ve eaten here before we knew to expect good food. The table staff service was good. However we were seated about 10 mins late (we had a reservation). Our order for drinks, starters and mains was taken quickly. Only 4 of us had starters, once cleared away we did not receive our mains till almost 9:30. So apart from the long wait for dinner a good night was had by all.

Yes and no. My last experience with the food wasnt great, I asked for medium to well done fillet steak, cut in to the steak and it was very bloody, sent it back as I cant eat it like that. Once the steak came back it looked as though it had been chargilled, I didn't eat even half of it.

On our experience last week, we felt where we were sat was to close to each of the other table and we couldn't hear each other to speak. It took 15 minutes to get a drinks order and then between each course we had to wait a tad too long (15-20 mins. The Starters were over done and far to greasy and my husband experienced a bad stomach that night.

Food was great, service was good but slow at times and wasn't offered the dessert menu (or the bill) so had to signal waiter again to request it. Other than that though was an enjoyable meal.

Great food, great service. My only quibble (and not really enough to stop me going back) - is that the stairs are quite shallow and steep! But otherwise a great place.

This was just a run of the mill Sunday lunch for us. We found the waiter a little bit smug and service was nothing special. The Sunday lunch was ok, beef was so rare that it nearly ran from the plate and when we did pin it down it was chewy and lacking in flavour. I had the pork which was nice but overall just an average experience and at over £50 for 2 and a toddler not particularly great value - Wouldn't rush back.

Food was great value as we had the set menu. Great choice on the menu. Service was a bit slow as they were short staff. Once we explained we were going to a show and needed to be leaving by a certain time the staff were very accommodating.

1st class as always when we visit

We had a voucher from our son but had lost the actual card and only had the purchase receipt which caused the staff a little bit of a headache but was still sorted by the time we left. Thanks for a lovely meal.

the food was amazing, but the service was not great at all. the first round of drinks came half way through our mains, the second round of drinks came half way through mains. our waiter was danny. he spent most of his time with a table of 6 that’s was on the back wall not far from us. he then gave us dessert menus and waited 20/30 mins for him to ask if we would like anything at this point we had enough. he then gave us the bill and almost instantly came back to collect us money, that’s the quickest he came back through tour the whole service. but other than that the food was amazing and i have been to middletons before but this service has got me second guessing. as i was leaving andrea asked us about how the evening went, and she was very apologetic

Great food. Mixed grill well worth the money and delicious lobster. Left without dessert as it was taking way too long to get the dessert menu and the waiter to return to take the order but it is ok as it was getting quiet loud by then.

I visited Colchester Middleton's with a group of friends and my husband for my birthday celebrations, on Saturday 19 January 2019. The Food and the restaurant were very good; tasty, modern, comfy, clean. Our waitress upstairs was incredibly friendly and helpful. I think that she should be paid an additional bonus for her continual running upstairs and downstairs with our food... I was even brought our my desert on a wooden board with a candle and Happy Birthday written on it in chocolate sauce - little gestures like this can make a big difference and a good impression! Thank you. Highly recommended! We will be returning...

Great value restaurant. The fixed price menu is incredible at £10 for three courses and the added bonus is that it’s available on Saturdays between 12.00 and 17.00. !!
