Booked for Sunday 4 o'clock and was advised no roast dinner option available.
More staff than customer in the restaurant, poor service

Great value for money with set menu. I chose a starter off main menu and then two courses from set and still great value. Lovely service for my mums 60th birthday. Only niggle would be Gangnam Style playing which completely changed the atmosphere and didn’t fit at all with the rest of the music or ambience. Overall good.

This is the second time we have eaten at middletons in a month and this time the food was bland a little cold, I had the fillet steak which was OK the peppercorn sauce was cold the mushrooms was boiled and no flavour at all. The crushed peas were cold and flavourless. For what we paid not overly impressed. Make sure has flavour and get the basis right serve hot food.

As usual a great place to have steak and lobster. Service is great but understandably they are concerned about delivering your food quickly and hot when sometimes it’s nice to chill

As usual the food was excellent, the best steak in town! The set menu is excellent value, and for my wife and myself just the right amount. Our appetites are not what they were! Ambience is very good.

Have been here several times now and had roast lamb. Every time it has been perfect. The price for three courses is excellent. The staff were all very friendly and the restaurant was clean and tidy. Will be back again soon.

My friend and I went to Maddison’s for Sunday Lunch. Before our meal we indulged in a cocktail at the bar. They were delicious. Once sat at our table we chose a bottle of wine to accompany our meal. Then we ordered our meal, Roast Beef for my friend and Roast Lamb for me. They meats were both very tasty and had four types of vegetables, plus roast potatoes and the biggest Yorkshire pudding! The ambiance was good, and we both agreed we will return soon.

My partner and I visited for sunday lunch. We had both dined there before and really enjoyed it especially the generous portions. However, on this occasion we both remarked that the meat portions, though very tasty, appear to have been reduced.
One point to mention is that we noticed while we were there that 3 members of staff arrived for their shifts wheeling bicycles which they then wheeled all the way through the restaurant to the rear. I really do not think this is appropriate for a restaurant. Surely there must be a rear entrance for this purpose?

Brilliant steakhouse, flavourful and perfectly cooked ribeye, girlfriend had the cheese burger, well done and juicy. Staff were friendly and professional, my bracelet was left by accident and we immediately got a call back asking if it was ours.

Thought we would try Middletons as not been before. I had the Brie for starter which was ok but nothing special. I had salmon salad for main which again was ok but bland & oily. I had a bit of my husbands beef wellington which was fantastic & tasted really good. Services was good & staff friendly. I’d go again but would definitely choose something different from the menu.

Steak was amazing, best i’ve ever tasted! We all really enjoyed our meals. Desserts were fab too. My only complaint would be was that the service was a bit slow, especially as it wasn’t that busy.

A lovely restaurant, at the top of Chelmsford City high street, opposite the old law courts. Old facade, but inside a great mixture of old and new. We were promptly greeted at the door and shown to our table. Without having to ask a lovely bottle of very cold water was placed on our table, along with menu and an offer of any other drinks we would like.
We plumped for the Sunday roast, good choice of beef, lamb and pork. It is served with cauliflower cheese, and as I can't stand cheese, the server offered to find out what else could be supplied and came back to say that the chef would prepare some green beans for me instead.
Starters were lovely, I had the pate and my friend the sticky ribs of which the meat just fell off the bone! Our main course was hot, lots of veggies, including my green beans. Just over £30 in cost for the two of us! Bargain! Will definitely be going back, as we also noted that they do GLUTEN FREE as a norm! Many restaurants have many veggie options (which is a lifestyle choice) while being celiac can be fatal if served with the wrong or contaminated food. Highly recommend this place, staff were lovely!

Awful service. Food not cooked properly, and we complained to waitress. Waitress cant deal with it, and Manager has to get involved. Manger absolutely rude (passive aggressive) and makes it sound like the complaint is our fault. He said it would be a few minutes to recook. 20minutes later, food comes back, and it its presentation is awful. Meanwhile the other guests have finished eating. Absolutely no apologies from the Manager or any interest in the dining experience.

I really like Middletons and have been several times, will continue to go. The only downfall was that I had asked for a quite table as one of our group is hard of hearing, which they happily obliged, only to then put the loudest group of men on a lads night out right next to us, so it was louder than it would have normally been!

Our first time at Middletons celebrating our wedding anniversary. Food excellent and well presented. Only hiccup, if it can be called that, was that peppercorn sauce I ordered with my steak failed to arrive with rest of order but was promptly supplied, with apology, once omission was pointed out to waitress. Pleasantly surprised when bill came to less than what we had anticipated spending when we set out.

For a light three course lunch, including a small steak Middleton’s is excellent value and the food was tasty. We had the Three Courses For £10.95 menu.
If you’re meeting a friend for a catch up it’s more substantial and cheaper than going to a well known coffee chain.

3 choices of meat for the Sunday roast, vegetables were cooked well and it was nice to have them too the side so you could put on your plate what you wanted and not overload it. Massive Yorkshire! Which was lovely and the gravy was so tasty, value for money was excellent. Would definitely go again for Sunday Lunch

Excellent staff and chef! Really lovely restaurant, wasn't too noisy when we went. The music was a bit odd for this kind of restaurant I highly recommend they change to some New York style jazz.
The steaks were good nothing to complain about, flavoursome and cooked to order 👍🏽 Great choice of cocktails!
Would definitely recommend going.

I’m sorry but I wouldn’t recommend. A bit like sitting in a posh cafe. Dated decor doesn’t really know what it wants to be imo. Waitress was creepy / weird almost bordering on a bit rude with her abruptness.
I must say though that the steak was great. Very well cooked and the portions were large.

Garden salad and the starters were pretty poor. Could have done better at home.

We had a party of six which was put on a round table by the entrance/bar area. We didn’t mind the location but the table was a little small for six adults! The service was very good & our waiter was very attentive.
The food choice, quality & portions were also very good. The wine list & other drinks is extensive but we felt a little on the higher end. Overall we had a very good meal & a nice evening. 👍😊

I booked the table no problem. I took balloons and a cake into the resturant earlier that day. On arriving the balloons were not on the table i had to ask. The cake was then bought over to our table whilst the birthday girl was in the toilet so by time she was out...so were the candles.
The food was amazing, amosphere was great maybe a tad to noisy for a sit down meal you dont alwsys want to shout across the table when eating, the staff were great and apologetic for the balloon and cake incident, just maybe need a bit more attention to detail.
