The staff were attentive from the moment we stepped into Middleton's, service was prompt and advice given when requested. We did not have wait very long for our meals that looked and smelt lovely. Food was full of taste, well presented & plenty of it, we loved it. We will definitely visit again. Thanks to Dan and Sam for great service.

The food standard wasn’t good
The set lunch menu although chip - felt like a cheap meal

The calamari was dry and only got 4
The burger wasn’t that hot but the wedges were boiling so guessing that burger had sat there while wedges were done
And the Sunday was just 2 scoops of ice cream and 2 pieces of brownie that were the size of 10p

Wouldn’t come back for it again

Did put a request in not done but nothing telling me it wouldn’t be done so I was expecting it I know it’s a request but at least le me know you can’t do it

Was sat under an air con unit was advised about it when sat down but still not good being sat under it there was other table free I could of been put on

The starter was amazing and I can’t fault it was a lot bigger then I thought it was going to be

The mains not so great my partner had a surf and turf the lobster had foil in it

My steak seem very chewy and had a burnt taste to the outside of it

Drinks where great and not to badly priced

I had never tried here before as I always done Miller and Carter and I think I may stick to Miller and Carter

Some may love it here but it was not my cup of tea

Excellent value. Tender meat (lamb) great vegetables and plenty of them. Friendly, courteous and efficient staff. Top quality food (only minor complaint - Yorkshire pudding slightly burnt).

Rather disappointed to be honest, my steak was not a good cut, gristly and seemed smaller than 12oz. Onion rings looked like they came out of a packet from Tesco and my steak wasn’t cooked to what I asked either. The desert was rather small and overpriced and the service was not great, took over 30min just to sort out the bill after they added a 10% tip to the bill which they do automatically and you must ask to have it removed. Overall would just say go to Miller & Carter, yes it’s more pricy but they at least have got cuts of beef.

Our visit to Middletons Colchester was a disappointing one. The restaurant was overbooked but understaffed. We waited 10 minutes to be seated (despite a reservation) and 40 minutes for our food.
There was one waiter for the whole restaurant until 5 pm. He was very apologetic and after having spoken to him, he agreed that he was overwhelmed with the situation.
The restaurant just didn’t have it together on this occasion.

Our first time in Middletons and we had a great experience. We were served by a tall man with very fair hair (didn’t manage to get his name) and he was brilliant. The food was amazing and couldn’t fault it. The drinks on offer were lovely and it was a great first experience for a restaurant. We will definitely be retuning for more special occasions.

3 meals out of 4 were amazing! Mine sadly had over baked Camembert with most stuck to wrapper it came on and the prawn and crayfish cocktail was bland with only slivers of crayfish that was so small it was slimy. Waitress was amazing and helped when I pointed out i only had a steak knife for a salad & clearly they have meat cooking spot on for the others. Decor is looking sad, bulbs out. Shades missing and the bowls that had chips in were all chipped at the side. As they made edges sharp it would be potentially an issue for a young one not seeing it. Be prepared to wait for food, it was empty and we waited some time though again if you are ordering meat, it’s worth the wait.

Excellent welcome, track and trace procedure was made very clear on arrival, complimentary water was given out upon seating. Staff where very attentive and friendly whilst not hovering over the table, especially a young blonde girl who was friendly and welcoming throughout
Great and large selection of gin available
Food was outstanding and came out of the kitchen very hot, could see the meals being plated which we also found a nice touch
Restaurant was very clean and covid secure
Will 100% be visiting again
