Tonight we were lucky enough to be invited to try out the Middleton’s Steakhouse & Grill’s new Spring menu… what a treat! They’ve added some wonderful new things on their menu to suit all tastes including a larger range of vegetarian dishes.Philip served us at a table outside so we could enjoy the warm spring air as it had been such a sunny day.

We started with the Chicken Liver Pâté £5.45 (smooth pâté, onion chutney and warm sourdough) a large portion of pâté that contrasted well against the chutney and the smoothness of the pâté worked well with the crunchy sourdough slices.

For a main, I wanted to try something I wouldn’t normally choose and went for the Salmon Fillet (gluten-free) £12.45 (salmon marinated in lemon and herbs) this dish comes with the choice of one side: I requested new potatoes and added the green vegetables. A tenderly cooked large piece of flaky, fall-apart salmon arrived topped with herbs and a thin crispy base, the new potatoes were boiled to perfection – soft and with their skins on and topped with melting butter. The green vegetables were spinach and peas in the pod – a nice addition to this light dish.

The Blue Cheese Burger £10.65 (8oz) – (steak burger, blue cheese, pickled radish and lettuce) also comes with one side – we chose wedges.

A stacked burger in a bun. The steak burger was well done with ample blue cheese on top to give it a cheesy kick without being overpowering. A lovely burger dish which was cooked well without drying out with a sweet relish adding depth to the whole plate. The wedges on the side were large and filling.

I wanted to know about the new dessert on the menu as I’d never heard of baked yoghurt and was a little sceptical at giving up my usual chocolate-fill for a Baked Berry Yoghurt dessert. Bruno (the chef) actually came out from the kitchen to explain to me what it was… it sounded so lovely that I decided to try it…

Baked Berry Yoghurt (gluten-free) £5.15 – (baked yoghurt, berries, honeycomb) this is baked and set yoghurt which is lusciously creamy and smooth with a really fruity sharp topping that really enticed the palate. It resembled a Pannacotta but more creamy and less set.

And, lucky me, I got to also try their Black Forest Gateau £5.25 (chocolate sponge, black cherries, cream) This is definitely the 1980s in a glass… thick and creamy, sharp berry juice filled sponge, fresh layered berries and finished with a swirled creamy topping and a sprinkle of chocolate. What can I say it’s fresh tasting dessert free from any heaviness.

These might look small but these glass desserts are more than you think and are just right to finish your meal off with a big taste.

Middleton’s has a lovely location in the centre of town. It offers out great tasting food, most dishes simplistically English…I have noticed that gnocchi has crept in on the menu, but didn’t get chance to taste that-Maybe next time. And most of all it’s ‘good’ ‘local’ ‘fresh’ food. You get a good portion on every course and the men will be pleased with their choices I’m sure.

Thanks to the staff too, they were very polite and the service was excellent. It’s a good place for any occasion- offering both casual dining and evening dining. You could even try their lunchtime offer set menu – 1 course £7.95, 2 courses £9.95 or 3 courses £10.95.

Well worth a visit if you’ve never been and worth a second visit if you’ve not tried their new menu.

(p.s. It’s great for #SlimmingWorld followers too as there’s good meat choices and new potatoes and baked potato (ask for no butter) and side dishes of veg or salads (ask for no dressings) and voila – meal out sorted!)
