I have heard nothing but good things about the chain Miller & Carter Steakhouse.

And when I fancied something warm and tasty for lunch on a mild afternoon, I thought it would be a good opportunity to try it out.

I was impressed straight off the bat when I walked inside.

Around me were deep-coloured wooden furniture complimented with gold and red decor. The space was brightened up by the large windows.

We were welcomed by the friendly staff who seated us at a table for two which had plush red chairs.

My friend Carys ordered a water and an orange J20 and I ordered a sparkling water with ice and a slice (it was a bit too early to be drinking gin).

If you’re very hungry there’s an option to go for the two-course lunch from £11.50 or a three-course from £14.50.

There were many options to pick from including a mint and garlic lamb rump, signature steak sandwich and roasted salmon.

You can’t be too fussy at a steakhouse but for vegetarians there were limited choices with only two options.

Vegans couldn’t dine here but pescatarians had quite a few options on the table.

After taking a look at the menu, it was an easy decision, I went for the roasted fennel, quinoa and piquillo pepper burger (£11.95).

The burger was topped with cucumber and sour cream.

Carys went for the smoked bacon and Monterey Jack cheese beef burger (£12.50).

Both were served with a side of chips and coleslaw.

I always save the best until last so I started on the chips.

They were crunchy on the outside and soft like a pillow on the inside with the perfect amount of salt (these were a win for me).

I then moved onto the burger and it was a nice surprise that the bun had been toasted.

The ‘burger’ was fried couscous which had a nice bite to it and was softer on the inside.

But with each bite I got a taste of the peppers and cucumber which were refreshing.

Personally I wouldn’t have the sour cream with it again but I could ignore it enough to still enjoy the meal.

The beef burger was demolished pretty quickly by Carys so it’s fair to say that was enjoyable too.

It was safe to say were both full and couldn’t manage a dessert even if we tried.

But there were some puddings that were quite tempting, like the banoffee pie, Belgian chocolate brownie and the peach, mango and passion fruit Eton mess.

Our table was cleared reasonably quickly by the very friendly staff who had made us feel welcome while we were there.

Overall it’s slightly above the affordable range but definitely worth the price.

And there were some good deals if you could fit more than one course in.

The staff were warm towards us throughout the whole experience.

I would probably save going there again for special occasions or maybe not long after payday.

But don’t just take my word for it, go try it out yourself if you haven’t already.
