    Absolutely terrible. Service was a shambles. Not attentive at all. Slow service. Waited ages for our drinks. Starters arrived and was short one which then arrived after everyone finished. Mains arrived some time later and the steaks were not cooked to how we asked at all. Didn’t get any of the sides we ordered at all. Was a hen party group in also that was complaining of everything overall. Also one of the waiters was taking shots off a couple who was also dining. Would not recommend at all

    I came for bottomless brunch and the cocktails were un drinkable. They were so sweet ( and I usually love sweet drinks) we couldn’t finish any of them. We tried all drinks on offer and the only drinkable option was The Bramble. But when we ordered it for a second round it was a completely different colour and taste! Will not be returning as I also visited the Peterborough branch and had the same experience.

    Fantastic food as always, but the service went from trying to rush you through your meal, to the slowest. The wait for dessert was tedious, the bill was brought to us without asking if perhaps we might have liked a coffee. Shame, always liked Middletons, the food is incredible. But the service really lets the chef down!

    We had the sausage to begin with. This was nice enough. Our main dishes were completely the opposite. The steak arrived and appeared as though it had been cooked, frozen and then warmed up. It was difficult to even get a folk in. The meat platter was burnt to a crisp. Even worse in terms of cutting into it - which would have been difficult to begin with anyway, as there was no folk. The waitress seemed extremely embarrassed to be bringing out such abysmal dishes, for leaving us with such a long wait (even for drinks). We came here as a treat but will not be returning (to this branch or any other). They did take the inedible food off the bill but only when asked.

    Service was poor, slow and not the greatest. We booked for a table of 6 for my birthday. Wasn't a very pleasant experience. Food was late, bland and the toilets were overflowing. Table next to us were extremely loud and the staff didn't even ask them to he considerate to other diners. I won't visit this place again.. terrible service and steak was bland, nor was it cooked well at all.

    The food really let them down which was a real shame. Sunday roast meat was chewy and hard and they couldn't get the steak cooked properly for my husband who asked for medium well. Both times the steak came back well done and dry. I won't be trying this place again for steak and grill!

    We had eaten here before for a Sunday lunch which was excellent so we thought that we'd try again for an anniversary meal. Got to say that it was even better than before. Food was superb, good portions and hot which seems obvious but so often nowadays restaurants serve food that is not hot enough and by the time you're half way through, it's getting cold. Service was excellent too so all in all, superb and it has risen to the top of our list of restaurants to go to when the need arises.

    We had a great evening, it was a Sunday so I suppose it was quieter than a fri or Saturday. Regardless the food was great, service was also. The waitress was incredibly patient with us as we were just chatting and hadn't even looks at the menu 4 times she came

    We always enjoy Middleton although I booked for 5 and a high chair and the person who served us seemed surprised as they obviously not read the comments but requesting a highchair. it was a struggle for my son and girlfriend to get the pushchair to somewhere it wasn’t in the way. But the service was good and the food was lovely.

    Have been to Middletons a number of times and have enjoyed the food and service. But on this occasion v poor service as was quality of food. Waited an age to order drinks - I had to ask in the end as we didn't have all evening. Took them 40 mins to finally locate the bottle of white wine we had ordered - which was then brought to the table at room temp (the wine had clearly not been chilled). were given a wine bucket but with no ice so then needed to ask again. The ribeye steak i ordered was rare instead of medium rare - and just not well cooked . Really disappointed . Today more than ever restaurants need to differentiate themselves with exceptional service and this was the opposite.

    Sunday lunch was delicious - tasty beef, huge Yorkshire puddings and plenty of tasty vegetables. The vegetables were cooked to perfection, not soft and tasteless, which you often get when cooked in large quantities. I would definitely return.

    Overall the service was good however a little slow on the drinks. Food was great as always. We sat upstairs and we had to ask for them to turn the heating up, as it was a little uncomfortable. We have no problems paying tips, but when they apply a 'optional' service charge to your bill without saying anything comes across a bit rude.

    All the food was cooked perfectly Unfortunately the dishes ordered were not those that were ordered my mixed grill had the wrong sausage, as did two others. On top of that someone ordered the Middletons grill and the chicken was left off. I ordered French fries and onion rings but only got the onion rings. Would these issues put me off going again - definitely not. As I said at the start. The food was perfect. Anyone can slip up when taking an order especially when there is a large group

    We went as a table of 5. The service was very good and the waiters are very tentative. The thing that let it down was how tatty the restaurant is. It’s the old Cafe Rouge and I don’t think since Middletons have taken over it’s been decorated. Paint work chipped on very worn on the woodwork. Could be a lovely place but really needs some money spending on it.

    Sadly our visit which was our third was not as good as previously. We do not agree with the 10% mandatory service charge as previously had always left a generous tip. The whole restaurant seemed in a bit of a muddle although the food was good. Robert Bridges.
