We arrived here on a Monday evening to try this restaurant, we were asked if we had a reservation which we did not but we were shown to a table very quickly. We were given menus to look at but there was a long wait before anyone came to take our drinks order and food order .We both had starters... More

Miller and Carter have amazing fish and chips, they give nice tartar sauce with it and a bowl of peas. I think the chips are homemade style if i remember correctly, they take quite some time to prepare your order, up to an our sometimes, but when you taste the quality of the food you forget about how long it...

Ate here on a mild evening at the end of October. Arrived slightly before our booking, so were able to enjoy a drink outside overlooking the canal, with it being pleasantly warm for the time of the year. Once seated I had the rib-eye steak medium, and my partner the Chicken breast. Both meals were fantastic, my steak was succulent... More

We decided to go to Miller and Carter on the advice of a friend and were not disappointed. The steak was the best that I have ever had and the service was excellent, we will be back again soon.

I once read a review that suggested that the quality [size/sharpness] of the steak knife was more important than the quality of meat. If your knife slices effortlessly through the sinews you subconsciously deemed the cut of meat to be of a higher quality, even if it wasn't. Anyway, they offer big knifes at Miller and Carter [a chain of... More

After following the advice of their website we didn't reserve a table so were faced with a 50 minute wait on arrival which we accepted and had a drink at the bar. The waiting didn't stop there, we had a longish wait for our starter, followed by a 40 minute wait for our main courses which when they arrived were... More

On a recent Saturday night we went to this restaurant for a special meal, and that's what we got. We had to wait an hour for a table to become available so sat outside on the canal view terrace. When the table was free we were treated with just the right amount of reverence by our very attentive and knowledgable... More

Overcooked steaks. They ran out of 16oz rib eye steaks. No longer in the top 5 places for steak in Birmingham. Tried to bill for drinks we didn't have. Very disappointing.

Decided to treat ourselves to a "proper" steak for a change, and absolutely loved it! The service was first class from the moment we walked in and the food was almost perfect. My only criticism was my steak was slightly undercooked, but I like mine well done, and the chef obviously didn't want to cremate it!! We'll definitely go again,... More
