We went for dinner there at Christmas and it was perfect. This time the lamb wasn’t cooked properly at all had to send it back 3 times. Can’t fault the ribeye steak tho

First visit to Middletons. Food was good quality, service was ok - Very friendly, although quite slow. Very noisy environment though and felt like I had to raise my voice considerably to talk to my girlfriend opposite me!

Nice decor with relaxed, but accommodating service. All the food was great, with steaks cooked to perfection. Set menu provides a really affordable option for those on a budget (a la carte menu a little on the pricey side). All in all a great first experience - we'll no doubt be back!

Arrived to Middleton’s with my family and was greeted very kindly from a member of staff. From my online booking they made a point of reassuring me about my nut allergy that everything I ordered would be safe which is fantastic and I don’t get that much anymore. We sat down and had a beautiful meal, would definitely recommend and I’ll be going back soon. Thank you!

Overall a great experience but despite being very quiet in the restaurant when we arrived, the meal itself felt a little rushed.
We ordered a gin & tonic upon arrival but this came just a minute or two before the food. I would have liked 5-10 minutes to enjoy the gin first.
The waitress called Aneta was extremely friendly and polite.

Firstly, the service was very slow, especially considering there were only 4 other tables. We placed an order but when the food arrived, one of them was wrong. It then took them another 10 minutes to rectify by which point everyone else was half way through. The roast itself was delicious, as were the gravy and all the accompaniments. We asked for condiments which never arrived. When it came to dessert, this was awful. The chocolate fondant was hot but cold on the inside so no ‘fondant’ and the banoffee pie was a complete disappointment. It tasted like it was stale - that ‘fridge’ taste!

My review would've been 5 stars had it not been for the amount of meat in the Sunday roast. The Yorkshire's were gigantic, the vegetables cooked to perfection, the crackling (I had roast pork) was crunchy and crisp, and it was possibly the best cauliflower cheese that I have ever eaten in my life. The only thing that let the Sunday roast down was the amount of meat in the portion (3 small medallion sized slices). Bar that, it was a lovely lovely meal; we love going there for food!

Nicely decorated and large space but the service was exceptionally slow as not enough staff. Added to that our starters went missing as taken to the wrong table and then left under the hot lamp for ages whilst they worked out what the mess up was. Don’t think we will be going back on a Saturday evening again.

Perfect lunch place. The menu offered many options, particularly for a vegetarian and someone who is gluten intolerant. The food was delicious and the service was very attentive. I would definitely recommend the restaurant to others.

We had over an hours wait for food due to a problem in the kitchen. Our waitress was very apologetic and we were offered frre desserts and coffee. I would certainly go back again in the hopes that normal service has been resumed! We all had the set lunchtime menu which was good value for money so no complaints there.

Excellent food, atmosphere and service. Our waitress Mikaela was outstanding tending to all our requests promptly and efficiently. Have visited several times and have nothing negative to report. Probably one of the top three restaurants that Chelmsford has to offer.

Unfortunately, the wait for our food was over 1 hour, however, they did recognise this without us saying anything and they gave us a free drink and desert. So although a little frustrating they didn't have to be told, the addressed it.

We had the 3 course set menu for lunch on Saturday. I had the pate with sourdough bread. It was delicious. My daughter had the spare ribs which she enjoyed. For mains I had the salmon salad & my daughter had the minute steak. I was surprised at how little flaked salmon was in the salad, probably about a dessert spoonful if that. We both had the raspberry meringue for dessert which was so tasty.
On the whole we were happy with the meal but won't have a set meal again.
The waiter was attentive, friendly & polite.

Our family of 4 had a lovely dinner for my partners birthday. Staff were friendly and we didn’t have to wait long for them to take our drink orders then food orders. To keep the kids entertained they were given crayons to colour in their menus and do puzzles.

The children’s 3 course menu were great value for our two (8 and 6 years) they especially loved the desserts. The adults enjoyed the steak which were cooked perfectly and really tasty.

A lovely decorated birthday brownie & candle were brought out with the desserts for my partners birthday which was a lovely touch. As the restaurant got busier we did have to wait longer for dessert than we had for our main but they were worth waiting for.

Myself and my partner came to celebrate our anniversary. We had never been before and we will definitely be back!
We both had 3 courses and I cannot fault anything with the food. Everything was cooked perfectly and was very tasty! I recommend the beef wellington it was delicious. Compliments to the chef's.
I believe our waiters name was Stefan. He was very lovely. Always making sure we was okay, but he did not over do it.
The restaurant itself was nice and clean and the music isnt too loud.

I will definitely be recommending my friends and family and we will definitely be back.

Thank you for a lovely meal!

Food as usual could not be faulted but the service was somewhat slow. Despite ordering steak or a roast dinner we were served after people who arrived later than us. They too had ordered the roast.

First time at Middletons on a Saturday night table booked at 8.30pm
First the positives, staff were very good, drink menu very good all supplied in very nice glasses. However I’m afraid I didn’t find the food matched. Mussels although tasty were very small, the ribs were good but no better than any other chain restaurant, my burger supposed to be a blue burger was lacking in any cheese with an over sweet bun and no gherkin, my friend had a mixed grill, steak over cooked and chop undercooked, frozen onion rings then deep fried not for me.
Overall some positives, but not the premium steak house product I was expecting

We come to Middleton's regularly. I have a 10 and 7 year old, and the options for children are very good.
The set menu is outstanding value and the quality of the food is excellent.

What's more we always get good and friendly service. Highly recommended.
