Restaurant description

Serving acclaimed British and Irish steaks alongside a whole host of other grill delicacies and British home-style favourites, Miller & Carter Colchester is a contemporary steakhouse for the whole family. A comprehensive wine list is served from the bar, along with classic cocktails, while little ones get their own special food menus too.

The Miller & Carter menu is led by hand-cut, 30-day aged steaks, all carefully sourced from sustainable British & Irish farms, and expertly cooked. Favourite cuts span from a deliciously tender grass-fed Ribeye, aged for 50 days for a rich, buttery flavour, to a luxurious sharing chateaubriand. Other Miller & Carter signature dishes include smoky barbecue ribs with seasoned fries & dressed slaw, and a pork fillet wrapped in bacon with apple 3 ways served with dauphinoise potato, green beans and roasted Mediterranean-style vegetables.

To finish, sweet indulgences include chocolate hazelnut bomb, an indulgent, rich chocolate ganache encased in toasted hazelnuts and chocolate nibs, served with pecan praline ice cream and zesty orange curd. The Miller & Carter cellar is brimming with drinks designed to complement the menu, including chilled draught and bottled beers, crafted cocktails and an impressive wine list of rich reds and sparkling wines.

Set just outside the town centre, Miller & Carter Colchester is an ideal spot to relax after a visit to Colchester Zoo, which lies 6 minutes' drive away.

    Superb meal. First time to Miller and Carter and certainly won't be the last. Highly recommend the onion loaf and the desert taster board.

    2nd Time at the Restuarant (6 months since our last visit) We were really looking forward to coming. It was Very busy. I had book a table a few days before. At first we were given a table in a dark corner by the bar area, but the waiter could see we we not happy with that so within 2 minutes he moved us to the centre of the resturants. It waz a shame the menud had changed as i loved my Salmon dish i had last time and was planning on having it again. Our waiter was very attentive and professional overall we had a lovely experience.

    Great service, polite, helpful, genuinely engaging. My steak was utterly appalling. I can truly say I've never attempted to eat anything so tough and inedible in all my life. I literally could not chew the meat. For that to be a £23.95 Sirloin steak was a disgrace and truly disgusted me. After the third appalling mouthful I called the manager over, who to be fair was very apologetic, said I would not have to pay, offered a replacement (hardly useful when everybody else was nearly finished) and a desert of my choice free of charge. The poor waiter was very sorry and kept apologising and I kept saying it's not his fault, if it was anyone's it was the chef's. My children both had the same as me and said it was beautiful. Mine was utter crap and wouldn't have been out of place on the sole of my shoe. Even the manager noted how awful the gristle was and tough when trying to examine/cut it.

    I love Miller and Carter, but was a bit upset this time as my steak came well done - very well done. I ordered medium, so it wasn't a particularly enjoyable steak this time around. Being British, I didn't feel able to say at the time, although I did mention to the waitress when we were paying.
