Miller & Carter has just recently opened in Bristol, and all I have heard was great things about it.
So of course being such a foodie, I just had to try it out.
Me, my boyfriend, my sister & her partner made a reservation for Friday night.
As soon as we arrived to the front of house, you could tell that the experience was going to be great, we were greeted with a very warm welcome and were taken to our table. The design and interior of the restaurant was very impressive. Being such an interior fan, I was in my element. Its situated in Cribbs Causeway, in a converted barn, they have kept a lot of the original features, however they added their own spin on it.
We looked at the menu and we couldn't wait to order. To whittle it down to just 1 dish each was the hard part, I wanted everything. I finally opted for the shared platter, which consisted of bresaola, olives, spinach & feta burkes, humous the list went on, i'd heard about their cheesy garlic bread so we ordered that too. It was all so delicious and was presented so nicely too. If there is one thing that I appreciate then it is good presentation, and Miller & Carter exceeded at this.
For mains, we all went for a bit of a mix, we had rib eye steak, steak burger & a full rack of ribs. We added sweet potato fries of course, the steak was (quoting my brother in law) the best thing he has ever tasted. It got to the point were none of us were talking as we had all ran out of words to describe how delicious it was. The portion sizes were so generous too. Again the presentation was 10/10.
For my favourite bit... desert. We opted for cookies & ice cream, and brownies. The ice cream was vanilla bean ice cream, and it was certainly the best I had ever tasted, and thats quite the statement coming from such an ice cream lover. There was so much choice, it was so difficult to pick, but I was so happy with my picks.
All in all, I couldn't recommend Miller & Carter enough, they don't just have one in Bristol, they have one in Bath, Birmingham and other locations, so to be sure to check them out. I recently visited The Ivy, and I must say the opulent experience was on par, however the service at Miller & Carter was far better. The staff were incredibly attentive and friendly. It really was the perfect date night. If you need somewhere to eat for Valentines, then you HAVE to try out Miller & Carter.
I took over their Instagram that evening, which I really enjoyed too, however I found it such a struggle to not photograph everything there, it was all just so Instagrammable. I will 100% be returning.
Thank Miller & Carter
