“Lovely meal”

Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Last night was my first trip to a Miller and Carter restaurant and I really enjoyed it. Firstly I loved the decor inside, very tastefully done. Yes when you arrive you must register your car registration number on their machine to avoid a parking fine but this was fully explained by the front of house staff. We both just had a main course, one sirloin and one fillet steak and both were cooked to perfection. You also got a couple of sides thrown in. One was a big wedge of lettuce with a dressing which seemed a slightly weird choice but was actually very nice and went well with the overall dish. It was also nice to see that the sauces and dressings were included in the price as most other restaurants charge extra. We found the staff friendly and helpful too. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back as there were many other things on the menu that appealed to me which I would like to one day try.

Cannot praise this restaurant enough. The food was excellent, and arrived promptly. Our server, Spud, could not have been better. Our compliments go to her and the rest of the staff - we will return soon.

Visited with Hubbie this weekend. Plenty of space in the car park. Greeted at the door ok (not exactly warm greeting but was ok). Shown to a tiny table for 2 next to a large family group with a few small babies - politely asked for a quieter table and was shown to another one with no quibble.

Was bemused by the wedge of lettuce thing which just got left as I suspect happens often. Steak was amazing - cooked just as I had asked for and full of flavour. Thumbs up for having a specific gluten free menu too.

Drinks arrived swiftly too so some of the issues mentioned in earlier reviews seem to be ironed out now.

For me it’s a big improvement on the quality of food that the White Rabbit used to serve up. I would eat here again quite happily.

Cannot recommend this place enough. Really good food and a great selection on the wine menu. The portion sizes were very good and there are a lot of options to choose from depending on what type of meat you want. Service was good and very welcoming, perhaps could have been a bit more attentive if anything. I must say after reading some reviews, anyone who can see the bigger picture can respect why they don’t want to turn this beautiful restaurant into another Maidstone dive by letting drinkers only in. The pub trade is dying, why would they follow suit. It would take all of 5 minutes for undesirables to turn up and cause scenes whilst people are paying a fair amount of money for a good atmosphere, not to mention the hundreds of football fans going to watch Maidstone F.C. getting drunk before and after games... car crash... if you want a drink go into one of the many dives in Maidstone centre that’s 5 minutes away. Give this place a chance as it’s only been open a month, great potential and will deffinatley succeed with the food on offer, will be returning soon.

Visited last night and had the 3 course Sunday lunch menu, scallops to start were lovely! We both really enjoyed our main courses, very generous portion sizes and my partners steak was cooked to perfection.
Only downside to the night was being sat next to staff stood outside the kitchen doors where we were unfortunately in clear earshot of one of the waiters swearing loudly at one point and complaining about other customers in another room who had sent their food back, working in the service Industry ourselves we found this very unprofessional. Also, one of the items that was sent back by another diner was a desert, we had to watch two members of staff eat this desert on the restaurant floor whilst we waited for our own, which came out late and had melted. Would have loved to have returned based on the lovely food but will unfortunately be put off by the customer service.
