Miller & Carter Steakhouse

Hi Everyone
So I thought I’d mix it up a little this week and add some kind of culture post into the mix.  On Saturday James and I treated ourself to a steak at Miller & Carter, a steak restaurant at the Mailbox in Birmingham.  It was an opportunity to get dolled up and enjoy some time together after a very weird Saturday morning (we woke up to find we had been victims of crime 🙁 )   Miller & Carter are owned by Mitchell & Butlers and can be found nationwide.
This could possibly have been the best meal I have ever eaten!  I’ve taken some photos for you to look at (your will dribble!)  I didn’t get a picture of the starter because I was too keen to eat it but I have some lovely chicken wings in BBQ sauce served with a blue cheese sauce to dip into… it tasted like heaven!
For my main I had an 8oz sirloin cooked medium rare.  It is the most tastiest steak I’ve ever eaten.  It was moist and flavoursome and cooked to perfection.  James had a Steak Wellington which is steak encased in pastry, pate and mushrooms.
Desert was just as amazing.  I was so full I just had ice cream.  James has a lovely piece of cheesecake with raspberry coolie on (does anybody else think of Joey from Friends ‘excuse me Sir what is this red crap on my cheesecake?’)
I would highly recommend Miller & Carter for a date with that special someone, or even with family!  I’m really lucky here in Birmingham as they have just opened a Marco Pierre White Steakhouse too.  Can”t wait to try it out!!  Think it will need to be amazing to top this steak.

All in all this was reasonable priced to.  For three courses each plus two beers and two glasses of wine it came to £70 which I don’t think is too bad considering the quality!

I hope you enjoyed my little review.  What’s your favourite chain restaurant?
