Having booked this place to stay for the night, and having noticed that it was given a 4* AA rating, we were very much looking forward to our visit, BUT, upon arrival at 4.45pm we were advised by a man in the car park, that the pub was not open until 5.50pm, nor was there any notice stating this fact....

We were a mixed family group of 7 with ages from 17 to 77 who stayed 3 nights in this friendly b&b whilst attending a wedding in area. The four rooms were all clean and comfy and having own front door into accommodation gave us more privacy away from pub. Breakfasts were served in the main pub and were very... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights in this Inn. We found the room very small with nowhere to sit other than the bed! Housekeeping needs to address cobwebs on walls, ceiling and light. Surfaces very dusty. A plus was a comfortable bed! Flexible Hose from power box to shower head filthy and air vent in shower ceiling thick with... More

Spent a night at The MIll Wheel and have to say loved the actual pub/restaurant but the accomodation could easily be improved. The room was small but contained everything you may need for an overnight stay. The bed linen and towels were spotless but think the housekeeper should make a lot more use of a feather duster especially on the... More

We had a warm welcome to the Mill Wheel tonight. We had not been for many years and decided to come on Steak night - so glad we did! The food was excellent - cooked as requested, and the service very attentive and friendly. Very good choice of main meals and lovely deserts especially the home made cheesecake. Wouldn't hesitate...

Received terrible service today, on what should have been a special occassion. When I rung the Mill Wheel I specifically requested that I wished to be seated in the restaurant not the pub, and that I would prefer to book somewhere else than sit in the pub. Turned up to find out that the girl on the phone had made... More

Stayed for one night before visiting Calke abbey. Our room was small, but everything we wanted was there. We ate upstairs in the Restaurant, and the food was excellent. Service was a bit slow, but it was very busy and the staff were very friendly. Breakfast was brilliant and we would stay again.

Food was good and the atmosphere in the bar/restaurant was welcoming. This is our second visit and we will certainly go again. The bedroom was small, but comfortable. It would have received a higher rating if their had been fewer cobwebs.
