    Excellent steakhouse. The venue was fantastic - a former bank which had some original features. The meals were great and the staff were superb. I have intolerances that mean I follow a vegan diet and the staff were really helpful. I’m sure many readers will say I shouldn’t have gone to a steakhouse, but my husband loves steak so a steakhouse it was. Well done Middletons - Chelmsford.

    We went here for date night on a Saturday evening at 7pm. Food was delicious but unfortunately service was not good at all. There was just not enough members of staff working to cover the tables they had. One of the staff members put this down to the fact they had ‘two large tables in’ but by large it appeared this meant - two tables of 8. Within an hour we had one round of drinks and our starters. The food and the food alone would make me want to try again

    We dined on Sunday and it was easy to order and our drinks came very quick not much wait for food but I ordered mozzarella salad and tomatoes wasn’t fresh was very mashy and 2jumbo prawns they weren’t fresh and didn’t taste very nice prawns was very chewy then I ordered medium to well sirloin and it was over cooked I mean I probably enjoyed the drink more than my food lot of items was out of stock such as sea bass and few desserts this was my first time visiting Middletons I would not be returning

    My Steak we extremely rear I asked for medium rear. I had to send it back which I have never done in 26 years of dining out as an adult. I had to wait 20 minutes for my steak to come back. It was the same piece of fillet which I was ok with but it was now black on the outside and running blood from middle. Inside was still extremely rear almost the whole way through and the fillet was thick. The rest of my food was cold as it had to sit for 20 mins for the steak. I have never left a steak before because it was inedible but this I had to. The table next to us had exactly the same problem and sent his back too. The staff were very polite and friendly. We will never go back. I wish I had the guts to not pay for my meal, but I guess that’s the British in me.

    Service was really slow considering how quiet it was in the restaurant and not very friendly. The burgers were dry and not very flavoursome. Steaks were good as exactly how ordered and were delicious. There was no atmosphere in the restaurant. Overall for the experience we had it was very overpriced.

    We’ve been to Middletons a good few times & we found this visit not quite as enjoyable as our previous times our starters very good just found the side dishes such as the sweet potato fries weren’t crispy & the tomatoes & mushrooms very dry so felt very disappointed & not good value.

    Food was excellent and cooked to our specification for Steaks. Good service not kept waiting for courses, but not rushed through the meal either. Note if you wish to pay 10% service charge this is when you make payment at the end when using the PDQ. Otherwise avoid this and leave your own tip.

    The food was very nice. The only downside to the meal was that the brocoli wasn't cooked and was hard so it couldn't be eaten. The roast beef was lovely but needed to be sliced a bit more thinly as my dad had to really chew on it to eat it apart from those 2 little problems the meal was very nice .we shall definitely be coming back at some point

    Not quite the normal excellence we have always had at Middletons. The menu and initial service were up to standard as we're the starters. Disappointed with table clearance after starters which took far to long.. For my sides I chose the wedges which are normally brilliant but instead of nice plump wedges I was served small, dry crispy ones. Obviously end of packet ones. Everything else was very good as usual although and the raspberry and white chocolate roulade was my wife's favourite. Took my sister as a guest and she thoroughly enjoyed her meal.

    Second time in a row we’ve been disappointed. The standard of food was not as good as it used to be. We were so disappointed. Staff were helpful and pleasant but no senior management around to address the problems we encountered.

    The booking was easy and quick. The service was friendly, relaxed but attentive. The food was perfect (I am very fussy with my food) the lamb was fantastic. The price was excellent value (i had the lunch set menu.) This was my first visit to this chain and I would highly recommend it.

    We came here this evening and firstly I ordered a mozzarella salad when it arrived I had a tiny 3 cubes of the mozzarella and about ten tomatoes which I asked the waitress to swap for an alternative which was ok. Then for my main meal I ordered the fillet steak medium rare. My steak was very tough and thought my steak knife was blunt as. It cutting through when it was time for the bill it was pointed out there was a complimentary 10% service charge. So when I asked for this to be removed. The waitress said is there a reason why. I explained about my meal. And upon hearing this. My waitress then told me. Was your steak gristly and tough. As we are having issues with the fillet steak from our current supplier and stopping the bad ones being served. Occasionally some slip through was also told. There are no issues with the rib eye or sirloin. So surely I should have been told about t this issue on ordering my filet steak !!! Knowing they have these issues I was not even given. The chance. To have it deducted from my bill a very poor show from Middletown’s this eve. Leering a customer order a cut of meat which. There is issues with. Therefore not giving the customer a chance to decide to change the steak !! Obviously only wanting the profit on the more expensive cut. Steak

    Food was good but restaurant was uncomfortably hot (note this was not during the recent extreme heatwave but just a fairly warm summer night) Another guest asked for the air conditioning to be switched on but no action was taken on this for at least 30 minutes by which time the temperature had become unbearable and we had asked for the bill rather than staying for dessert. We may try a different branch but I cannot see us returning to the Chelmsford branch.

    Booking our table was easy online, originally I booked a table for 6, but due to unforeseen circumstances one couple dropped out. It was easy to go in to my booking and change it to 4 people. My husband and I were the first to arrive, our friends are always late so arrived a little later. We were shown straight to our table, we weren’t offered drinks straight away but the waitress did come over after a while and ask if we wanted to wait for our friends before ordering drinks, we decided to have a drink whilst waiting. Upon arrival our friends were soon offered drinks and asked if we knew what we were eating, but as we were catching up with each other we hadn’t yet decided. Once we’d decided our order was taken and the starters soon arrived, apart from one which arrived a little later with apologies, all were delicious. Our waitress was very polite and helpful, bringing us water on request as well as refills for our drinks. Our main meal arrived promptly and we just couldn’t fault it, our friend even said the steak was better than Miller & Carter. As much as we shouldn’t have done, we couldn’t resist desserts which were lovely and very tasty. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will be back again.
