Had their Sunday Roast which had a choice of three meats, separate vegetable dish with a good selection.
Large Yorkshire Pudding with a rich gravy which made the perfect Sunday Lunch.
Service was first class with very pleasant staff attending to your every need.
Brilliant

One of the male servers was quite rude to our group, which honestly spoiled it. Complete lack of manners from start to finish, basically yanked the card reader out of my hand. Other than this absolute tool, the other servers were incredibly lovely and polite. The food was enjoyable; I've had better from this place before, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. Dessert, however, is not the strong point of this place.

All good apart from I ordered coleslaw, didn’t get it but we realised after we had been charged for it, the restaurant wasn’t overly busy so it shouldn’t have been forgotten.

I struggle with steak even though i love it, l just hate fat and chewy food, but didn't have to worry here, I ordered the 10oz filet, cooked medium, it was perfectly cooked and so tender. The service was fast and efficient but still personal. Maybe next time I'd ask for a table not so close to the door as the constant stream of customers does make it a bit draughty.

Rib eye steak very tender and properly cooked. Asked for rare and it was as expected - nice red meat inside a seared outside which gave both flavour and succulence. Red meat as in not cooked to the core, not pink is partially cooked but RED! Yes! Hard to find this in the UK.
Service excellent. I generally refuse to tip in any way in restaurants if presented with this option on card machine but on this occasion did leave one with the waitress who was cheery and highly efficient.

We waited 20 minutes before being offered any drinks:( then another 15 minutes before taking our order... that finally arrived after waiting ages.... our main course took ages too as a big party came in about 20 minutes after us... and had theirs before us..... the poor bloke was rushing everywhere:( will wait awhile and see if we go back was disappointed as it was my birthday meal...

Our second visit was more disappointing for myself. Garlic/chilli prawns were slightly over cooked and way way too much chilli. Last time I ordered extra bread to mop up the sauce but this time was unbearable. My beef wellingtons was supposed to be pink and I pointed out this was medium to well done, the waiter agreed and was very kind to offer another but 45 mins wait wasn’t an option, he did remove this from our bill. Everyone else loved their meals and 3 people had the steak and lobster and loved it. Hope our next visit I will leave a little bit happier.

When I had to pick somewhere for a birthday celebration my first pick was Middleton's. Have eaten there on several occasions now and it never disappoints. Excellent service, great price and good quality well prepared food. Another great visit and it won't be my last. Would definitely recommend.

The service was amazing, our food initially came out cold but they made fresh food straight away and the manager came over to apologise. The service is always brilliant here, my partner and I come here frequently

For a good meal the price is very fair.

Been to Middletons a few times now and have never been disappointed. Service is great, never hassled by staff and given plenty of time to select what to order. Staff attentive and very polite. If I had one complaint, it would be that it gets chilly when people leave the front door open if you are seated at the front. Other than that, it’s great!!

Had the most loveliest meal with the most brilliant staff, that treated us really well. Me and my partner went for our two year anniversary, and our waitress for the night, created a ‘congratulations’ board with chocolate sauce and sweet treats! Was so lovely! Definitely recommended to everyone I know!
