The other week I was invited to Miller & Carter Steakhouse in Maidstone and I was completely blown away.. with everything. I was that person who looked at the menu and said “Oh my gosh everything sounds so delicious, I don’t know what to get” and then sits there staring at the menu for another 10 minutes. And obviously because I love Christmas time, I was curiously wondering around the restaurant looking delightfully at all of their christmas decorations. Today, I bring you a full review of the Miller & Carter Steakhouse in Maidstone, where I will discuss the food, the service, the restaurant interior and the atmosphere.
F O O D
Starting off with the menu, I decided to take a picture of the menu because it wanted you guys to see what sort of foods they offer and the prices. The prices of the food was very reasonable especially because you could tell instantly that the food was very good quality and was cooked to perfection. Even though this restaurant specialises in steak’s it does offer a lot of other foods too such as salads, chicken based meals, burgers and meals for vegetarians. I am not the biggest fan of Steak, but I knew that my partner would have a steak. Which I thought was good because he has steak a lot and so he could give me a review of it. It is so good that they offer a very great variety of food.
All of the food was presented so gorgeously, couldn’t fault it at all. I am the type of person that takes note on how the food is presented, I think that could be because I bake a lot and know how to make things work and look good. The presentation was 10/10!
So we waited around 25 minutes for our food which isn’t really long at all. The food was so amazing that it was worth the little wait. We were served by a lady called Holly and her service was incredible. She checked on us to make sure everything was ok with the food and if we needed any sauces or a anything. She was very pleasant and really lovely.
I ordered the buttermilk chicken experience and it was honestly, hand on heart, the best meal I have ever eaten out. It came with gravy which tasted amazing, I literally poured it all over my chicken. The chicken was cooked to perfection, it was juicy and easy to eat. It came with a side of fries, a cheese and spicy corn fritter and grilled asparagus. Everything about this meal was delightful. There were a lot of chips and I am the sort of person that when they go out for a meal, if I order anything with chips, I like a good amount of fries. I was not disappointed. The meal as a whole was delicious, I would 1000% recommend getting this if you go especially if you love chicken. The portion size was good. after eating it I was so stuffed. The meal was presented very nicely, I definitely pick up on this sort of thing. The chefs at this restaurant need a round of applause.
Even though I was extremely stuffed, I ordered a sharing dessert so everyone at the table could pick and nibble at anything. This dessert is PERFECT if you aren’t really a dessert kind of person, but wouldn’t mind sharing something. It is also for those that have a sweet tooth. This was the indulgent sharing board consisting of mini doughnuts, salted caramel porfiteroles, chocolate brownies, giant marshmallows, fruit skewers with two dipping sauces of chocolate and toffee.
It was a good size for sharing for two people as there was two of everything. All of the treats that were on the board worked perfectly well together. I like that it comes with two sauces so you have the choice between two and you can mix it up. This was so delicious!
Do you see that? of course you do.. look at the size of it! this is my Elderflower sherbet mocktail (doesn’t that sound incredible) it was by far the best mocktail that I have ever had in my life, not to mention the biggest. I was actually shocked at the size of it as I wasn’t expecting it to be this big. I am such a lover of Elderflower, I think it is so refreshing and a flavour that I tend to always reach for. This mocktail definitely lived up to my expectations, I couldn’t put the drink down.
My partner had the T-Bone 20OZ Steak which was £28.95 and he said it was the best steak he has ever had. As soon as it arrived on the plate I could tell that they were playing games, they meant business because it looked tasty. When you order a steak you can have a wedge before the meal with a sauce. This is essentially lettuce in sauce. My partner got Bacon & Honey Mustard and it was quite tasty actually, and I ended up eating most of his haha. At first I thought it was really random and didn’t really understand it, although the lady that served us all evening told us, I completely forgot why you can have it. Once you have chosen what steak you want you also have to choose what steak sauce you want with it, my partner got Beef Dripping Sauce and OH MY GOSH! It was gorgeous! it was like delicious beef gravy. Everyone at the table was obsessed, wed all kept dipping our chips in it.
For dessert he got a hazelnut bomb and this is literally everyone’s dream. You know at easter time, when you wish your chocolate hollow egg was a solid chocolate egg? well this chocolate bomb was solid chocolate. It was any chocoholic’s dream, or anyones dream for that matter. The bomb was in the middle of the plate and there were chocolate and lemon sauces drizzled in a circle around it. The bomb tastes like Terrys chocolate orange which I thought was yummy. This dessert was absolutely delicious and if you ever go to this restaurant this is a dessert that you NEED to try!

One thing we all picked up one instantly was that there no were children in the restaurant, which I think adds a more sophisticated feel to it. There were a lot of couples and families. I kind of liked there were no children, only because it made the restaurant feel different to all of the other restaurants as normally there are kids running around. It felt very if you could say.. posh and sophisticated. Very luxurious and it has such a chilled, relaxed vibe.
The restaurant also had free parking which is amazing, it just makes life so much easier for everyone.

The restaurant was gorgeous. Everywhere I looked it had some sort of christmas decoration which made it feel so much more christmasy. I love the effort they have gone to in order to add a little bit of Christmas to their restaurant. Going this time of year was honestly perfect as it just felt so christmasy.
They had a lot of cabinets around the resturant that was full of bottles of alcohol. I loved looking at them because each one was different from the next. I really enjoyed looking at how they had decorated the restaurent.
Over every fireplace they had Christmas tree trimmings with candles which made it so easy to get stunning pictures of it.
And of course, there was a 7ft christmas tree in one of the main rooms. It was gorgeous and really added such a christmasy feel to the place. I honestly dont think they could have done a better job with the decorations.
The tree was so stunning that of course I had to get an instagram picture with it –
Have you ever been to a Miller & Carter restaurant before? if so what was your experience like.. I would love to know! 🙂
