Middletons Steakhouse & Grill - Norwich
Good size menu , delicious food, pleasant staff and service in a gorgeous setting, highly recommended
We didn’t get to order food. The service was slow and the noise unbearable. We left , unable to stand the din.
Was a Saturday night and very busy so we expected we may have a wait a bit which was indeed the case.
Our waiting staff was Matt who was fine and did a grand job whizzing round busily keeping us happy. Full marks to him!!
I ordered 'steak and sticky' which had a very large proportion of fat on my steak which was inedible.
My dinner companion ordered surf and turf with the upgrade to a lobster tail which was tiny and also what tail meat was there was very dried up and overcooked.
The sides were fine as was dessert and I would come again but not when its full on as it was Sat evening as the noise levels were very high.
7 pm on a Saturday evening. Busy, but so noisy. Couldn’t hold a conversation. Shame because the foods good.
Food was very tasty, only complaint is small portion size. Very noisey as well, not too much of an issue though.
No not really very noisy second time been
Staff didn’t know what food they were serving or meat rare we’ll done etc
Ordered rare told rare but wasn’t
Had to keep asking for bread as not enough served with pate
Sauces werent really good enough
Won’t be going 170 spent
We have been visiting Middletons for many years. We often like to have the lunch set menu. However we have had it twice in the last month and the starter and desserts have shrunk quite a bit, I ordered the mushrooms and you always used to get whole ones or half but a decent amount to taste. This Saturday I got a dish with no more than 5 half mushrooms and they where very small. And again the banoffee pie was on the very small side. It’s always good value but not as good as it has been over the past few years
Was told by a friend how good Middletons was and how true that is. I have been telling everyone will be going back when next in Norwich.
Fantastic food and very good service with friendly and attentive staff. The table reserved for us was in a particularly noisy area, being near the speakers and as we both have hearing problems asked to be moved. The staff were very helpful and moved us to a less noisy area.
I did enjoy my meal. Service was good, all staff friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was good, especially for a Friday evening. Not too noisy, but quite busy.
Although my meal was good (chosen from the grill) I felt an option for some sort of sauce, such as holindais or some sort of creamy pepper sauce, the meal would have been even better.
It was our first time at Middletons, and it definitely won't be our last!
The style of the restaurant is lovely, the food was absolutely delicious & very reasonably price, and the service was spot on.
We can't wait to come back!
An enjoyable evening but rather spoilt buy the high noise level as we were only a party of two and had to almost shout to have a conversation. Could the balcony be adapted as a a slightly quieter area but still retain the atmosphere??
Our server for the evening was fantastic.
Very attentive, polite and efficient.
It made our experience a very enjoyable one.
I didn't catch the girls but she did a great job.
Our food was good, my steak was perfect however the mushroom was dry having been left under the lights for a bit too long.
It certainly won't put me off coming back though.
Thanks again! :-)
The overall meal, wine and dining experience was very good and the young man who served us was excellent.
The food was outstanding, cooked to perfection and the waiting staff are Fabulous! I will definitely be visiting again!!
Lovely hot food and great service. great atmosphere
We always have a great meal here and service.
The only thing I was say this time around was that there was a really funny smell around our table. Not sure if it was old cloth smell or the chair or the table. What ever it was, it didn't smell nice.
Visited Norwich for the weekend, found Middletons online and were very happy with the service, food was excellent.
We had the prawn cocktail which was average at best and clearly made from frozen stock. The sauce was very bland. These are not concerns that would have me sending it back but I "defo" wouldn't have it again. The steaks (2 x 10oz Rump) were ok. Just ok. Not "Amazing".
I had a perfect meal of surf and turf. Perfectly cooked fillet with yummy garlic prawns. Most of the party enjoyed their food with the exception of 1 who ordered the whole lobster. It was tiny, looked more like the size of a crab. He was unhappy as left feeling hungry but had paid £30. He mentioned to the waitress who didn’t seem to care.
Was all good been a few times paid cash for meal which then the waiter took the cash and didn’t bring me my 7 quid change back. Even though there was no service charge on the receipt. I would have left more in a tip but I would like that to be my choice. Will not be going to middletons again even though I do Like the food.
Excellent all round food and service cannot wait for next visit
Great value and really good tasty food. Staff always happy and friendly.
We were a party of 8 and all of us were very pleased with our food. The service was was very good. Excellent value for money, we will definitely return
Food was awful. Food over cooked and forgot one of our orders. Never again!
Poor service and food not great as my steak was small and my daughters food off burgers and chicken burger with avocado was what you expect from a theme chain restaurant like TGI friday, I wanted something a bit different and special for my daughters birthday and was disappointed especially when you are spending £85
It was a particularly night due to local events and unfortunately they didn't appear to have enough staff to cope. We had to wait a good 20 mins past our booked table which meant we then had to rush to the theatre. The food was lovely from the set menu.
Very busy and not enough staff to cope.
Had to send steak back due to being undercooked. Once I did get it cooked correctly it was lovely and the ribs just fell off the bone.
Had a lovely meal at Middletons before a concert this week. The restaurant was very busy and all the staff worked hard to keep the experience to a high standard. The saver menu is perfect giving great choices and excellent quality. Will definately be returning to this restaurant and recommend.
Extremely busy & waiting staff under pressure but remained friendly, calm & helpful. Food great
Was a lovely meal food was fab very accommodating didn’t feel rushed to finish and leave like some places.
Lovely friendly staff and good value meal.
Would recommend Middleton's to friends
I have already complained re my food . Thank you
Rude waiter, rolled eyes at me when I politely asked for a table that wasn't on top of other people. Steak was meant to be medium-well done, was medium, ordered a fillet and it was quite fatty. Asked for vodka soda and lime but I'm sure it was lemonade. Vegetables were cold and smothered in butter, also it said green vegetables and it was just asparagus. Chips seem to be smaller portions than before and the mushroom was tiny.
This was my 2nd visit and yet again the food, service and whole dinning dining experience was top notch, iv highly recommended to friends already and will continue to do so. See you in a few months when we are next in the area
Yet again the team at Middletons never let us down, great food, superb service, big thanks to Becca for looking after us.Wednesday night, really busy. but food still spot on.
The food was flawless! We could not possibly fault the service, our server was a distinguished gentleman with a beard and we could not fault him. He made our anniversary night very special and even gave us a complementary dessert for our evening.
Great customer service
Great experience overall
Table ready on arrival waitress attentive but gave us time to choose . Perfect interval between courses didn’t feel rushed. Was a girlie get together so we had plenty of chat so appreciated the leisurely vibe
Our food took over an hour to arrive. Several dishes arrived cold with sauces missing and sides missing. The green vegetables side dish consisted of a single vegetable - asparagus. Which were overcooked.
I appreciate it was a busy weekend however if you are unable to achieve the service levels the public would come to expect you should limit the number of covers.
Not impressed. The waiters however recovered well and were attentive and friendly.
