Had a birthday meal, total of 7 of us. Not only was the food excellent but I must say, our waiter Vinnie, was a real credit to this restaurant. He looked after us perfectly and was very friendly and chatty despite the restaurant being really busy. I can't fault the food or the service. A very enjoyable evening.

I am a huge M&C fan but didn't have a great experience on my last visit, It was a huge disappointment. Service was very slow, drinks didn't arrive at all, lots of plates at the kitchen hatch waiting for someone to take them to the tables but three staff putting knives and forks away and having a chat. Food took... More

We have never been to this particular Miller and Carter before so decided to try it out for future use as it is closer to our home . The food was as usual top class and we decided to push the boat out and selected the Chateaubriand with all the sauces and trimmings. Our waitress Nadine was really friendly and... More

I have eaten many steaks and been to many restaurants but none as grossly overrated as Miller & Carter. The experience began with being told we’d have to wait two hours to eat, luckily something became available after ‘only’ forty five minutes, I've been told that you can’t book in advance on a Saturday so I can’t really grumble about...

Booked a table for friends for my hen night, the service was excellent, I received a big friendly welcome from the staff who were more than happy to lay the table with cards and chocolates I'd provided for the occasion. Before our meal I was given a complimentary drink of champagne. Service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble... More

Visited Miller and Carter on 11/7/14 for my Wife's birthday. We ordered a fillet steak medium to well done and it came medium at best. I ordered a Rib Eye medium and it came rare. It was full of gristle and not edible. I complained to the waiter who told me 'that is how it comes medium'. I also complained... More

We were wanting to try Miller and Carter for a while on a weekend in Birmingham on the canal we did! Our waiter Vinny was great! Service was prompt, food was great and price also good! Despite the poor reviews we had read we loved it! Would recommend completely xx

The restaurant itself was really good, staff efficient (although not perfect English), and the food took a reasonable amount of time to be served. Very tasty meal, although not massive for what you pay, although for the occasion the price wasn't an issue. My only real gripe was that my first two choices of steak were not available - pretty...
