We all 4 had the set menu, which was excellent value for money. The steaks were tender, tasty, and of a good size. The kiddies meal was also very good value. My 2 year old granddaughter ate it all!! The staff made a fuss of her, as well, which she enjoyed. The service was very good, and met our needs perfectly. We left feeling valued and welcomed as customers, and look forward to returning again.

Food was amazing however service let us down on various occasions. Firstly, our drinks server did not know which drink was which (as we ordered different gins) then when we ordered food our server did not know which steak was which (then calling it a sirloin rather than fillet) then we waited 10 minutes for peppercorn sauce for 2 steaks and onion rings and finally we got thrown our pudding menus in our face. The service really ruined our experience with us travelling from north to go as we received such an amazing experience at the kings lynn Middletons! Will not be returning.

We were seated promptly and drinks order was taken, though didn't actually receive the drinks until we had to ask a different waiter which was 3 minutes before our food arrived, 35 minutes after being seated. When we received our food we were asked if there were any sauces, to which we said yes, but didn't receive any. Food was fantastic. Feel of the restaurant was great but staff could step up to standard.

I was a little disappointed as I booked a table at lunch time for me & my friends for my birthday & there was no special offers (2/3 course) on that day as it was valentines. It would of been nice to have been told this when I booked as this made our meals quite expensive.

We attended for my Dads 50th birthday. Staff all very welcoming and helpful as we took our own cake and candles.

Food was delightful apart from the minor issue of my dads meal which was missing the chicken from the chicken and rib dish- the waitress was very apologetic and officiant with resolving the issue as soon as possible.
The main dishes were probably left on the table a little too long for our liking leading to us not wanting any desserts from the restaurant.

The only negative thing I have to advised on would be that our table was placed directly next to the waiting station were they polish cutlery, which was very noise and a slight invasion of privacy when the waiter/waitress was there.

Overall a very enjoyable experience and will certainly be returning in the near future

We were seated on a cramped table in the middle of the restaurant which meant my husband had to move his chair everytime someone went by. The restaurant was very noisy so you couldn't have a decent conversation. Starters were the best part of the meal with everyone enjoying this course. I ordered a Cesar salad with my meal but received chicken cesar salad. This was returned as I'm a pescatarian. 3 desserts were ordered and there was something wrong with each one. The custard served with the treacle sponge was cold. The middletons sundae was missing the whipped cream and the lemon tart was served with custard instead of cream. The food was ok but expensive for what was served. I won't be hurrying back.

Temperate was quite warm when we first arrived but it seemed to cool down.

Starters were average but the mains (steak) were incredible.

Service was great, really friendly and attentive.

Would definitely recommend.

Great service on arrival. Staff were brilliant and menu catered for perfectly for my party of 5 including my 9 old daughter, who has now said that Middletons is her favourite place to go!
Great selection of food and drinks. Great evening had!
Will definitely be returning! Thank you for a great night!

The steaks at Middletons are terrific but it's not the greatest dining experience. The tables are very close together and the restaurant is always very noisy. Limited choice of starters and my wife's salmon main course was not very nice - slimy skin with a lot of salt on top of it. She did mention it to the manageress who went away and did nothing. Service was a bit slow too. My fillet steak was excellent but I'm afraid the rest of the experience wasn't very good and we won't rush back.

I would recommend but it took us nearly and hour to have our main course. We was sat right next to the kitchen and where they clean up the cutlery. And the consent smell of hot water & vinegar they use was disgusting. There clothes were coming through the hatch bit so touching our table where our food was. The noise level was sooo loud. Not the best experience we have there which is a shame. We will be returning to the kings lynn not Peterborough

6 meals ordered waitress advised 2 sides with one of the steaks - this was not the case - only advised on arrival when only one side given
2 meals were cold 3 warm edible 1 hot and lovely
Drinks ordered 2 completed 1 order didn’t arrive but still charged another order arrived twice
2 Middletons sundaes ordered arrived without cream which was later brought out in seperate pots
Overall could be nice but service seriously needs sorting out - allocate tables not jobs no one knew what was going on

It was a busy Friday evening and there was a few minutes wait but this suited us as there is a nice bar area to sit at to order cocktails. We sat on the quieter side of the restaurant and it was a lovely atmosphere. The waitress was brilliant - good rapport with all of the customers. We ordered 3 starters between 2 of us as we couldn’t choose between them and they were all brilliant - Brie bites, honey sausages and spicy wings. We then ordered the 36oz rib eye on the bone to share which comes with 2 sides. It was HUGE! They carve it at the table which was a nice touch. Cooked exactly as we asked - on the rarer side of medium rare!
Nice range of cocktails and mocktails (designated driver!) unfortunately no space for dessert this time round but it has guaranteed us a second visit. When the bill came it was an even nicer surprise - fantastic food, lovely restaurant and fab service for under £100.
Would definitely recommend.

Very very average. Long wait times for food. When the food did come out it was cold and over cooked. No draught lager, all over priced 330ml bottles. For the size of the food portions this restaurant is very over priced!

The service on this particular night was very poor. We booked the table for 7.30 but unfortunately it was ready until 7.50pm. After being seated there was a wait for waiter to ask for our drinks and food order. Food was amazing. But had to wait a while between each course. One member had to chase where her drink was. Then when dessert came we had to wait 5 minutes after asking for cutlery to eat with. A real shame as previously couldn’t fault the service.

The food was as always good value and quality however one of the guests had the macaroni cheese and that was very dry inside.
We also tried to pay via the app but no one could show us how to divide the bill into two, although the manager did spend a lot of time with us trying to get it to work

Lovely steak, nice vibe! Food took quite a while to arrive but we couldn't complain once it did, delicious. A bit over priced for the surf and turf with lobster due to the small amount of lobster. Steak is superb!

This was our 4th visit and only once we were disappointed with the quality of food. Guess it depends on chef; this time around good was really tasty however fillet steak I ordered was little over cooked. My other half’s good was spectacular

Visited lots of times before and it's always been really good, but this time it was awful. Lost waitress kept bringing us random food and drink for other tables, steak was very undercooked, plain burger came out with cheese. Service was below standard to what we are used to from here. Told manager steak was under cooked, she agreed and thanked us for the feedback, leaving me with undercooked steak?

Had the 36oz steak found it to be very scraggy £49.99 had better cuts from my local butcher. My partners little 8oz steak looked ok but really nothing to rave about very much the same as you would find at a harvester or beefeater. Nice place friendly staff,but found the table to small and the plate was way to small for the steak and the fries. Way over priced for the big main attraction. Not sure if I would return in future.

Visited for my twins 8th birthday. The food was as delicious as always but this time the new General Manager Simona (I believe her name was) mad the whole experience so wonderful for my girls. They had the best birthday meal and we’re fully spoilt and entertained by the attention of the staff. The kids have already asked to go back for their birthday next year and during the year too. Honestly it was a wonderful experience for us all. Thank you.

We had a lovely meal but we did have two criticisms. My friends fillet steak, which was cooked beautifully, was cold on arrival so she sent it back. The plate was returned with the steak warm but the tomato and mushroom not on the plate which made us think it had been microwaved. A member of staff tried to say it was a new steak only it had her knife marks still in it so that was a bit of miss information. But it tasted good when returned will missing food added. So that was sorted. My only other issue was that my peppercorn sauce was rather bland but everything else was spot on. We will be back as I think the food is overall tasty and good value... just needs a little more attention to detail.

Excellent restaurant. I’d always recommend it. However this visit disappointed me a little, on the booking I’d left a note that I’d be visiting with my disabled father and could this be taken into consideration with the table. We were taken right to the back - furthest table away from entrance, negotiating a step and having to negotiate already full tables, not easy when you walk with a stick. I could have said something at the time but didn’t want to embarrass him further.

Eaten here since it opened. The quality and value started to slip but now it is back to when it first opened. Bring back the Eton Mess and it would be perfect.

Food was nice, we ordered a steak and a chargrilled chicken dish. Steak was more medium than medium rare and the chicken breast was also a little overcooked and dry. We were in a rush so didn’t complain as fresh would have taken too long but still tasty enough. We were just before 6pm so it was quiet when we arrived but was filling up as we were leaving
