Today is/was Ian’s birthday so I took him out for a meal to his favourite steakhouse Miller & Carter.
We normally got to a local branch but they have opened a new restaurant a few miles away & we decided to give it a go.
I have to say we were NOT disappointed at all. We went earlish & although the car park seemed quite busy it was quiet inside.
It’s only been open for about 6 weeks & they’ve done the refurb really nicely, you certainly know your in a Miller & Carter. It’s nice & clean & stylish.
We ordered a large glass of wine each & looked through the menu. we’d got a voucher for a free starter or desert …………. if you “like” their facebook page you can get a voucher yourself. (dates limit’s apply) ………… we opted for the sharing platter which looked like this …………
Okay, okay so the plates are empty, it all looked so good we couldn’t stop ourselves! But just to let you know there was calamari, cheesy button mushrooms, chicken wings, garlic bread & onion loaf. Ian said the calamari was amazing ……….. I don’t eat it so no idea, but the rest was fantastic & so fresh, the chicken was so moist & delicious & the cheesy mushrooms were to die for.
For our main meal we both had the rump steak’s medium/rare, Ian had the iceburg lettuce wedge with no dressing & I opted for some button mushrooms which they were more than happy to change for me from the lettuce.
Regradless of the voucher there was no way we could fit in a desert, we both struggled to finish what was on our plate & I will admit to bringing a piece of my steak home for the dog!
I will admit it was the best piece of steak we’d eaten since Australia & the best we’ve ever eaten at Miller & Carter.
Thank you to all the staff at Miller & Carter Hockley Heath for a wonderful meal.
