After debating where I wanted to eat for my birthday, I ended up choosing Miller and Carter and what a choice that was. The menu had so many options I honestly don’t think there’s a wrong choice – unless you don’t order the steak, of course!
The atmosphere is very cosy – although we did move seats as we were placed right by the tills which was a bit awkward – they were very accommodating and moved us right away.
The starters were also fab and I couldn’t fault the taste. I ordered the Wild Atlantic Scallops which cost £8.95. For almost £9, I thought there wasn’t a lot on the plate however it was still lovely.
The mains…oh my lord. I shared the Butcher’s Block which was the best steak I’ve ever had. In the sharing board, shown below, it had:
30 day aged Fillet 8oz, 50 day aged grass fed Ribeye 8oz and a 30 day aged Rump 8oz served with a brisket stuffed marrow bone, two portions of fries, two lettuce wedges and a sauce of your choice – I went for the Beef Dripping.
It cost £60.95 however individually all of the above costs around £80 (I think if I added it up right). Either way it’s worth every penny it.
Now moving to the desserts. With a price tag of £9.75 for the Sharing Platter, it’s pretty steep for what we got. Perhaps proper fruit skewers might have done the trick or melted chocolate. The toffee sauce was gorgeous…the chocolate just tasted cheap – almost like it were icing.
It’s an expensive place so it’s wise to share if you can. We were served by Susan who was very kind and polite. When we were brought our puddings she also brought us THIS – how lovely!
Alongside my meal I ordered the Absolutini which is described as a “cocktail for you to shake and serve. Absolut Rasberri vodka and strawberry purèe, shaken with apple juice, lemon and sugar” and boy was it good.
Here you can see the mixer which I thought was quite cool.
