Just under a week after opening, we visited as a family of six, for an evening meal.
Having eaten at various Miller & Carter's previously, the anticipation and excitement for this one on the outskirts of Hinckley & Burbage was high. Familiar faces greeted us, having decided to stay on with Miller & Carter when they took over the venue, which is a good thing or bad thing maybe, but there seemed to be fresh looking, eager staff to compliment them.
The menu was explained after permission was given to do so, as some of our table was unfamiliar with Miller & Carter, followed with a subsequent drinks order being taken. There seemed to be quite a long ten to fifteen minute wait for them, however. Strangely, a second round of mocktail drinks for the children appeared very different from the first round. Not much consistency then, but should we be accepting of any teething problems at this stage?
Food was ordered, awkwardly at first, as electronic devices are used to note it all down. We're living in a digital age, but sometimes keeping things simple is key, especially with a seemingly basic menu catering for most tastes. Back to basics?
The meals arrived as expected and looked appetising and freshly made. The 12oz ribeye steak is a favourite of mine personally, albeit medium-rare for my taste. It arrived as such, if not slightly under maybe. Forgivable as the whole table enjoyed the meals, from starters to desserts. One can ring a bell on the way out, so make sure to ask about it.
The venue is fresh, modern and smart, with staff that compliment Miller & Carter Hinckley, being remarkably knowledgeable, attentive and responsive when questioned.
Congratulations on your first week! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
