Service was very quick and the waiters were very professional and polite and also made sure everything was satisfactory. Food and drinks came quickly and were of good quality. Overall a good standard for a steakhouse.

I Have previously been to Middletown’s (Leicester) in October and had a 5 star experience, food was incredible and the service made it even more enjoyable. However sadly on our most recent visit myself and my girlfriends experienced was not what we remembered from our first. My girlfriend ordered a well-done 8oz Sirloin steak that came out charcoal on the outside yet medium in the middle, swimming in a pool of blood. I ordered a medium-rare 8oz fillet which came out very rare and chewy. I also overheard another table next to us make a complaint about how their steak had been cooked which indicates to me that this was not a one off and that your chef must of been having a terrible night! As a restaurant that prides themselves on their quality of steak I and my girlfriend were thoroughly disappointed with our dishes. After paying the full bill I have to question whether I would like to risk visiting Middletons again to pay a large amount of money for low quality food.

We visited having seen positive reviews and thought the venue looked inviting.I never write bad reviews and try to find positives in everything but this was a really disappointing experience. We were promptly seated and the waiter came and put the cutlery down in a pile saying there's cutlery for three people.A bit odd.A waitress later came and placed everything where it should be and did look a bit embarassed.rThe restaurant was cold and I mean cold as in we all put our coats back on.There was no atmosphere as there were only 10 diners at the most ( thats not the restaurants fault).The starters of prawn cocktail consisted of a pile of prawns in marie rose sauce on two lettuce leaves.Very basic no frills The main of lobster was very hot on the first mouthful no complaints there but stone cold on the second and third mouthfuls.Three mouthfuls .The chicken was tough,stringy and yet and very pink inside.We skipped desserts as we didnt feel the restaurant warranted anymore custom.As I said I try to find positives the drinks were nice and reasonably priced.It was a poor meal for over a hundred pounds.Im not keen on the tip being automatically added but hey ho.I have no complaints about the staff but the food was very poor and put the heating on !

Unfortunately this wasn't their finest hour. I think they were short staffed but the portions were meagre and cold and the vegetables barely cooked. I have had lovely meals here in the past but this was pretty bad. They provided excellent service though and the manager went out of her way to resolve the issues and we did get a discount for our trouble. Hopefully a one off and would try it again but not for the Sunday roast.

freezing cold venue.people were eating with coats on.waitress was great.steak nice served on cold plates with lukewarm fries and mushroom.very disappointing for a steakhouse.coffee and brandy ordered .coffee lovely.brandy served in half pint tumblers filled with ice.not good.everything brought to the manager's attention who agreed lots of things were wrong and knocked 50% of the food bill.we would rather have had a good meal as it was my sisters first visit and her mother in law had travelled up from northants to join us.

Not a good experience I have been to several of your restaurants. The place was cold other diners had their coats on. I raised the issue of it being cold not a lot of response although at the end of the meal we were offered complimentary hot chocolate n brandy. I’ve had the 3 course lunch menu several times but it was awful this time.

Took my partner here for his birthday, our first one together and what a disappointment. It took an hour for our drinks to arrive and almost an hour and a half for our food to arrive! The steaks were also not cooked as requested. I’m not usually one to complain but I was extremely disappointed considering this is usually such a lovely place to dine.

Great steaks but lackluster service and I wish the bar knew how to make a vodka martini. Any good steak house should!

Welcomed at the door very nicely, got seated quickly too, ordered a lot of food between 2 people, the mains was steaks but the came out extremely tough and chewy which was a disappointment, we were ignored by staff multiple times, we tried to call them to order more drinks, one signalled us to say 1 minute, next thing you know He’s behind the bar he notices us looking in his direction after 20 minutes of waiting for him so he sends someone else, we understand the place was going to close at 11 but it was only 10 o clock and we felt we needed to rush our food to get out quickly so the staff could get home on time, we were neglected by staff the whole time, didn’t feel welcome at all everything was being rushed. Poor experience overall, none of the staff members were friendly apart from the one who took our order.

Excellent food, good service, all you would need except no draught beer. That is the only reason for 4 stars otherwise it would be 5 stars

When the bill arrived we saw a £2 supplement which was not advertised on the menu and a service charge although optional for the bare minimum of service . I had to declare to the waitress that no supplement was advertised on the menu she arrived back with the value taken off after much debate with her showing her the menu we were given and what was on the website also. As we were leaving the staff were hand writing on the £2 supplement onto the set menu .

Food came out and the chips were raw and not cooked inside, once sent back the waiter huffed when he thought he was out of eye range. Took a very long time to be served but other tables were served prior. Very accommodating that some of our party was late.

Loved it! Ordered from the prixe Fixe lunch menu which is excellent value. Enjoyed garlic mushrooms 😋 fish and chips 😋 and topped it off with an ice cream sundae. For £11 I'm not complaining. It was a birthday meal out.
