The food was really lovely. Ideally the restaurant might want to consider better protection from the elements as the thunderstorm and rain made eating outside quite interesting. The staff were really nice and attentive.

Great steaks and excellent service. Puddings need improvement. We had a lovely night and will definitely be back (when we are allowed)

My only critism would be the fact there is no disabled toilet downstairs. Both my partner and I struggle with stairs

We visited Middletons during the first week of opening. The food was excellent...hard to choose with such choice. We all really enjoyed our selection. We will be back...when we can with friends.

Best steak I have had in a long time, I had the 10oz fillet steak with peppercorn sauce and fries, it was incredibly tender and flavourful - faultless. The steaks come with a nice little salad with fresh tomato and mushroom. All 3 of us loved our steaks and sides we will be back.

The desserts were fairly generic, however, they tasted good if uninspired.

We drank a lovely, bold Argentinian Malbec, Dona Paula, with our meals (around £25) which complimented the mains perfectly. It's also worth caveating that we went on the half-price food opening week so the value for money was much better (just under £100 including drinks and service for 3 people)!

The surroundings are fairly calm and quiet, could have done with some festive cheers given the current situation.

Great food and great service. We went during the soft opening so it was 50% off, but even at full price the value for money would’ve been great! Great flavour and portion sizes.

Excellent choice on the menu. Food lovely. Service by Liam was great. We sat upstairs and the only small suggestion is that you need better lighting - I wanted to see the lovely food I was eating! Next time I’ll request a table downstairs

Food was good but the service was very poor, forgot to bring 1 of the drinks twice, weren’t allowed to order puddings due to time but would of have plenty of time had the service been in good time, leant over people who were eating to serve food and drinks.

We dined at Middleton’s for my birthday during their opening week, so with 50% off it was excellent value.
We had chipolatas and a tomato/ mozzarella salad to start, both excellent.
I had beef Wellington which was a little tough, and my husband had a surf & turf. They didn’t ask when they took the order how he’d like his steak cooked, so it was pot luck but actually came exactly to his liking. The prawns were quite spicy and difficult to peel, and we had to ask for an extra plate for the prawn shells. You often get a little finger bowl when you have a dish like this but it wasn’t offered.
We had a chocolate dessert and a sticky toffee pudding which were both very nice. The service was attentive, though one waiter didn’t speak a lot of English. We found the music quite loud and with the staff all wearing masks it made it quite difficult to hear them. All in all though it was an enjoyable experience and the restaurant has potential to be a great place to dine once they find their feet.

This is a great place to enjoy really good meat and seafood! The steaks are great and there is loads of choice on the menu - cuts of beef, sizes, sauces etc. There is a great range of starters, mains and desserts. The Butcher's sausages are to die for - if you are not a veggie! And the salted caramel ice-cream - yummy, and a very large portion! But the most outstanding thing for us was the service. It was attentive, efficient and so friendly! The staff alone would make us want to go back - and we are not easily impressed as Cambridge has many good restaurants!

3 hours before our booking I received an email to say our booking had been changed to 2 people instead of 4. I immediately called them as we hadn’t changed our booking. They updated our booking to 4 people but again we got an email to say it had been changed to 2 people. When we arrived they had us down as a 2 not a 4 but they were able to accommodate us.
The ambiance is lovely.
2 of us had calamari, one had the pâté (delicious, with a lovely chutney) & one had crayfish. We were all very pleased with our starters. The mains.... two boys had burgers and they were so peppery the boys struggled to eat them. I’m not sure if this is how they are meant to be or if someone had an accident with the pepper pot.
The mixed grill was great & the ribs had a delicious sauce & plenty of melt-in-the-mouth meat.
The brownie dessert was disappointing. It was more like a cake than a brownie & had clearly been reheated but cooked for too long. It had no flavour. Meh.
The brownie sundae fared better, and the brownie in that tasted completely different.
There were plenty of staff and apart from one who couldn’t speak English at all they were very helpful but we had too many different servers. I’d have liked one staff member assigned to our table.
It’s a great restaurant with plenty of potential, and as it’s their first week of being open & food was 50% off it was good value.

We went during the soft launch, it was busy due to the offer that was on and thought that most of the staff needed more training before a busy service and managers/senior members to have been overseeing designated areas better. Steak and lobster were both excellent, all sides unfortunately tasted as if they were pre-made.

Excellent festive food at an exceptional price ( special offer of 50 per cent discount on food ). Drinks a trifle expensive. My waitress was very good ( on only her second days employment ). I would not hesitate to eat in Middletons again.

Greeting and seat location was excellent. Food brilliant staff kind and helpful.
A slight glitch with the computer input resulted in a slight over charge. An e mail resolved this very quickly. Staff were all in training as new premises. We have already booked for a further visit.

We were very pleased to see Middleton’s open in Cambridge ,we have eaten at Norwich and Chelmsford before . It was their second day of opening and there was a couple of minor issues but I am sure these will be ironed out .The staff were very attentive without being over bearing. Steaks here have a great flavour and the desserts were the best we have eaten at Middleton’s. Their set menus offer good value for money and wine is good. We will go back,I hope they do well, I think that there are not many good places to eat in Cambridge ,but this is one

The spicy prawns were delicious!!! The steaks were delicious but the chicken and ribs were pretty dry.

We went on the first night it opened in Cambridge so the service needed some ironing out but overall, very happy as everyone gave great customer service :)

We visit on very first day of the opening, for dinner.
we had a bread board to nibble while looking at the menu.
for the starter my partner had spicy prawns and they were delicious, my
chicken liver pate was good, but a bit bland.
both of our mains were perfect and cooked to perfection,
follow by delicious dessert.
we will be back, and definitely I would recommend this place.

We went for dinner at their ‘soft launch’ as the restaurant opened for the first time in Cambridge a couple of hours earlier. We were really impressed from the initial greeting to the final farewell. They have a very keen attention to cleanliness and we felt very safe with their COVID-19 processes.

We both had filet steaks which were cooked to perfection as was the rest of our meal. Service was very attentive and timely.

They encourage the use of mobile phone and QR codes to access their menu, it worked for my wife but for some reason not on my phone.

Overall it was a very pleasant visit to a restaurant that we will return to.

Recommended.
