Eating Out at Miller and Carter Steakhouse Restaurant, Albert Dock, Liverpool
There are quite a few steakhouses in Liverpool that specialise in cooking your cow to every single way you enjoy it (medium rare or rare obviously). Yet there is one restaurant in the city that seems to have this kind of food absolutely nailed.That restaurant happens to be Miller & Carter on the Albert Dock.
So What Makes a Good Steak?
It’s not just beef they serve. Everywhere you look on the menu you will find a celebration of meat, with chicken and lamb making an appearance in various forms; not to mention an extra special offering of fish if you feel like it.
The Miller & Carter Experience
As a brand the restaurant actually belongs to Mitchells & Butlers Plc, a company all too familiar with providing a quality eating and drinking experiences to millions of happy foodies every single year.With more than 15+ branded restaurant and pub chains and around 1,600 locations in the UK they know their food.
We were directed towards the cocktail menu, gladly so in the end. The Sloe and Mulberry Cobbler and the Cucumber and Elderflower Collins were perhaps two of the best cocktails I have ever tasted.
The Collins has a deeply refreshing, palette cleansing taste from the cucumber and ice; a fantastic long drink for a meal.
Most people say red wine is brilliant with meat. Not a fan of wine or want to try something new? Give the above a go.
The food we ordered? After a shared bread basket to wet our appetite we decided upon sharing the 16oz Chateaubriand. A thick cut of beef tenderloin cooked to your liking accompanied by onion “loaf” (posh onion rings), salad, chips and a choice of steak sauces.
Medium rare is the best way to eat this meat in my opinion; Miller & Carter definitely did not let us down.
Fillet of beef can be one of the most awesome mouth parties you can have if cooked right; my taste buds had an absolute rave that evening.
Portion size for two sharing? Comfortably adequate. Two of everything except the steak, which was large enough to feed two and a half. Great value steak at £40-£45.
