For such an eagerly-awaited and overdue dining experience to Peterborough’s restaurant scene it’s surprising how familiar the new Middletons Steakhouse feels. The concept isn’t new by any stretch of the imagination, with “steak houses” commonplace in towns and cities across the UK but somehow Peterborough city centre has lacked a proper steak restaurant (more on […]
Despite being open for a few weeks now somehow I’d not yet managed to make it to one of Peterborough’s hottest new restaurants, so when Turtle Bay invited me over for a review I didn’t hang around. With the children packed off to the grandparents for the night, my wife and I headed out to […]
