Our steak orders came out completely wrong. Medium rare was well done, medium came out blue. Service was not attentive or at the standard it should be. We won’t be back.

I’m not usually a picky eater but this has to be the worst steak I have ever eaten. I would much have preferred a home cooked one from aldi. The steak was really liquidy and had no taste to it at all. The started I had chicken liver pate was also extremely bland. However the dessert I had crème brûlée was very nice. The people who I was having a meal with also said they didn’t like the steak. So we definitely won’t be returning. After we had finished our dessert the server took at least 15 minutes to come and clear our plates so we could ask for the bill. She could clearly see we were done but continued to tend to other tables clear there plates and take orders. There were no other staff members around to ask either. All in all a bad experience

Steak not cooked properly when ordered, rectified by waitress but at second arrival steak was though. Provided feedback at the end and was told there is nothing they can do. Not a nice experience.

We went out to dinner for my mother's birthday, and despite being warned before sitting down, there was a 30-minute wait for food, it was quite surprising as the restaurant was not particularly busy and it was midweek. The starters were excellent, but the main courses were disappointing to say the least. Those who ordered steak requested medium-rare, but were provided medium well, and the steaks appeared grey.

Not sure if it was just an off day as the last time I went for food at Middletons, I really enjoyed the food.

Our service wasn’t great, we felt pushed to get in and get our. They didn’t check back on food or ask us if we wanted anymore drinks. The food was average for a steakhouse. Our steaks were good but the rest of the plate was poor, chips weren’t anything special and it came with a tomato and mushroom and a salad which made it feel like a Wetherspoons dinner to be honest.

The food wasn’t that great and the waiter was patronising when we were ordering which put us off completely. The food presentation wasn’t that great and the density of the gravy was very watery which didn’t go well with my other guests meal

The menu for Sunday was not really good.
The meat is boiled and raw , which made the taste really nasty.
The man,the waiter,was so incredibly amazing,funny and respectful. However, I felt that he wasn’t feeling good to serve that type of food.
Instead of taking off from the bill the food I didn’t liked, because I ordered something else,they still charged us. I can see why was only 2,3 tables only and no other customers, because of the chef of the restaurant,which is the most important piece in a restaurant.
I won’t recommend

Table for 4 - we had a lovely evening mains food was delicious. No complaints however we chose 2 cheese boards to finish. Cheeses were lovely and so were crackers but the grapes on both boards had definitely seen better days. Little disappointing.

Food was ok but not good for value. Steak was pretty bland, chewy in places and not worth the prices. Sides were not worth the price either. There’s much better steak restaurants in Leicestershire for less money.

Ambience and Attention given to us by waiters was good. Food came out to us in a very reasonable time.

However the food itself was very subpar and was definitely not worth the price. Medium well done steak did not live up to standards, chicken was somewhat dry and the prawns were very difficult to de-shell and wasn’t worth doing so for the meat.

There were no bbq ribs available as a starter which was a disappointment.

Overall, a very average restaurant that isn’t worth the price in all honestly. The ambience and service are the only things I’d consider to be “good”.

Conveniently located in the city centre. Easy to locate.

Steak is the signature dish but since I don’t take beef so I could only go for fish and chips. The fixed price menu offer some good value lunch and dinner sets.

The ambiance is good for family or friends gathering.

On arrival the maitre de immediately told us there would be a wait of an hour and a half which though not altogether unexpected in the current climate, wasn't the warmest of welcomes as we were made to feel like our best option was to go elsewhere. However, we persevered (mainly as I had already checked other options and they were very limited) and the waitress that served us was totally the opposite - very friendly, bubbly and welcoming which made a big difference to the enjoyment of our evening. Starters were underwhelming but our steaks were great and cooked to perfection. Overall a lovely evening though the restaurant was quite cold.

We have been a few times before, the last time was a couple of years ago though, and service and food has always been excellent.
Unfortunately our meal last night did not meet our expectations. The restaurant was not overly busy and there appeared to be ample staff however, we waited around 5 minutes to be greeted at the door. Our order was taken quickly and our starter and initial drinks came quickly too. We were given no cutlery with our starter though. We then waited and waited for our mains. We began to notice others who arrived after us finish their starters and already have their mains long before us. They’d actually finished by the time we received ours. I asked a member of staff where our food was. They checked and said it would be 5 minutes, it was more like 10. During this time we’d finished our drinks and our water and no one came over to see if we wanted more. When our food arrived we weren’t given anymore cutlery and were finally able to order more drinks. Food was really good but my husbands steak was on the rarer side (showing they’d probably forgotten us and cooked our food quickly).
We ordered dessert which came quickly but we were diss appointed with the taste and quality of these.
I really hope this was a one off and service/standards go back to how they were.
