I meet up with my work colleague at least three/four times a year. Normally meet in London but because of the pandemic we switched to your restaurant so pleased we did and will continue to do so. Food good staff great , the only downside our favourite wine was off the menu

We all had the meal deals and the food was very good. Had others sat on next table after us when others were available and the conversation wasn't suitable for children's ears.

Food excellent as always, but we were very dismayed to witness a member of staff eating behind the bar which was very off putting. She had fingers in her mouth, licked her fingers, did not wash her hands and continued her duties without any hand hygiene.
As fairly regular customers we will sadly reconsider our options before returning.

Great service from the team at Middletons. We had the Sunday roast. It’s good, although I would say the vegetables are generally a bit undercooked for my liking.

We have eaten here a few times and loved the food. However this time it was disappointing. The calamari was overcooked and chewy. My burger bun was burnt and the burger overcooked so it was dry. My husbands 12oz fillet steak was overcooked also as he asked for it to be medium and it was well done. The spinach wasn't wilted enough and didnt taste of anything.

The food was cold and not cooked to order. When sent back, the chef, grabbed the plates and mouthed a swear word in view of us. Rather then cooking fresh food, the chef zapped the food in the microwave. The sauce come back with a skin on it and cold in the middle and the prawns was dry and inedible

It was great food, but felt the table service was slightly slow to take our orders at the start. Took half an hour. Not even a drink order taken.
Apart from that everything was lovely.

Very nice food. Decent sized portions and the waitress was very polite and attentive. We did enjoy our meal but with one caveat. One of our party is strictly gluten free and the starter was offered with normal bread and the dessert was proffered as ice cream with a wafer in it. Both things obviously are very important to a gluten free diet. Just think that server and especially the chef need to know a little bit more about the food being served. Excellent experience apart from that.

Went to our local Middletons to celebrate our Anniversary and included this in our online booking. As it was a Monday night we expected it to be quiet and it was. No mention of our special day was made. Slight mix up in food preparation regarding request for no salad dressing. The rib eye from the Middletons grill was more fat than meat and very bland. The ribs and chicken were very nice. Sweet potato fries poorly cooked, all stuck together. The fries tasted okay but overall the food presentation was poor. Drinks delivered promptly. Good music but no atmosphere. At least we felt covid safe with very few others dining.

This was our first visit to Middleton’s. Food was excellent and service was prompt and efficient, despite them being short-staffed. Would definitely come back. Bit pricey but nice for a treat.

Our waitress who was on her first week of service was an absolute asset to the Middletons Chelmsford branch. She was able to answer of of our questions, with in depth detail, whilst keeping our evening light. She truly made our night, and we will most definitely be returning!

Well what a difference a week makes.
We had dinner in this restaurant last Saturday and were really impressed.
This week was not so good.
One of our friends ordered Ribs as a starter and when they arrived they were cold and had to be sent back.
My Steak was also only tepid and not anywhere near hot but I was hungry and didn’t send it back although I did mention it to our waitress Emice who was excellent.
I was disappointed as we took some friends there because we told them it was really good.

Worst experience i have had at a restaurant in Chelmsford so far. I arrived at 19:45 and waited an hour for my food only to be told that what I ordered (Fillet Mignon) wasn’t available an hour after ordering it. I asked the waitress where my starter was and she forgot I had even ordered a starter. I spoke to the manager and she explained that it was “busy” it was empty. I explained to her that if this is busy how will you cope when the restaurant is full?!? In the end after having both my mains and starters together and rushed because we had booked the cinema she only charged us for the starter and one round of drinks.

They only had one chef which they said may cause delays. My starter of calamari was too chewy to eat. I asked the waitress after our main if I could take home the leftover fish and beans but she brought back some chips and salad?

Very noisy due to the type of building . Meal was pretty decent though. Had the fish mixed grill which was OK. The sweet potato chips were overcooked which is my only minor niggle.
