Apology meal accepted

I reviewed Miller & Carter in June as I took my Mom here for her birthday meal and we were less than impressed (see previous review). In light of my review, I was called and offered a meal on the house for us both if we were to return for a second time. Taking up this offer while contracted in... read more

I feel like this restaurant is over-reliant on the fact it has a great setting overlooking the canal and serves hearty steaks, as it didn't seem to offer much else. The service wasn't very good (speed and general helpfulness) and it wasn't as if they were busy enough to use that as an excuse. The toilets weren't particularly clean, and... More

Best steak I have ever had. Service was a bit slow but it was busy. Steak was fantastic. Not so sure about the wedge of lettuce in a bowl thing but all was good. Would go back.

This was one of the most disappointing meals we've had lately and we had to complain. Starters were okay, but our steak main courses were barely warm. They serve an onion thing with it, which is similar to an onion bhaji, but it was cold. My wife's steak, which should have been medium was too rare. They weren't especially busy,... More

Great evening and birthday enjoyed. We went on a Saturday night where no bookings are taken and as there was six of us we only had an hour wait for the table which for the quality of food you get was well worth it! Great service by the team and really enjoyed the Malbec! Thanks again

They fitted us in last minute on a Friday! The steak was lovely, we shared the Chateaubriand. And the sweet potato fries are highly reccomended! The service was so good we actually called the manager over to compliment our waiter. A fab night with friends.

. We sat at a table for six with plenty of space, by the window overlooking the canal; other tables on the server run may be more problematic. Our starter of the mixed bread board platter was accompanied with some of the largest tastiest olives; this was followed by a serving of scallops Our main meals consisted of four different... More

For a restaurant proclaiming to be a Steakhouse, they are not much good with steaks. For the price you are paying you would expect top quality. Instaead I got what tasted no different to a microwaved steak from down the local. That being said, the location is beautiful. I would highly recomencd a few drinks outside on a warm evening....

Went here with my beautiful wife for a romantic dinner, however her steak came out perfectly while mine was Luke warm and the chips were cold! I've explained this to the host and he just took it away to be replaced! No apology given, nor was I informed how long it would take to cook a fresh one, eventually it... More
