This has become my boyfriend's favourite steakhouse in Birmingham; great food, really friendly service at a fair price. We definitely ordered too much for two - sharer platter plus a steak each and side each meant that we were stuffed! Really nice eating out experience, busy and fun environment - would recommend for a couple or group of friends.

First time in Birmingham and really just walked off the street, fantastic welcome, great service from the bar and the waiter staff. Had the steak for 2 and it was absolutely beautiful, the half lobster to the side was the icing on the cake. Place became busy and the service levels did not drop off. Consider what we paid including... More

We visited the Mail Box Miller and Carter for the first time for our Wedding Anniversary. The setting and the place itself were nice being by the Canal Waterfront and other bars and retaurants. The place itself was lively and full but we were more than happy to wait until a table became available. We took the chance to have... More

My wife and friend visited Miller & Carters upon recommendation of a friend. Being a Saturday lunch time we were seated promptly and given menus. Drink ordered were taken and we were informed of available specials. We were happy to order from the variety from the lunchtime menu which had a wide range of dishes. Food was delivered a short...

Me and my Wife have been to M&C in Penn, Wolverhampton before and that has never let us down so we had high expectations. We opted this time for the Mailbox branch because of the surrounding bars. We went at about 1830 on a busy Saturday evening and were pleased when we were told it would only be an hours... More

Visited this restaurant this evening for the first time, couldn't fault the waiter service but the good is very very poor. I had the lemon chillie Shropshire chicken. What a disappointment!. Two very small pieces of chicken in what I would describe a burnt gravy. Not a hint of taste of lemon or chilli. Served with a small cup of... More

As a conference delegate staying in Crowne Plaza Hotel, the Mailbox was an ideal venue for a stroll and a view of the lovely canal. The Mailbox area is being refurbished and some advertised shopping experiences are limited but there is a wide range of restaurants. We chose M&C. The view was lovely along the canal. Service was good, staff... More

I was quite surprised how average this place is. The décor is lovely and our waiter (Gabriel) did an amazing job, but the food was average. For the price you pay, I did expect something more special. It was delicious and well done, but you can get the same food at a much cheaper price in other places.
