On arriving with our friends for a one night stay for our anniversary, we were told we had been given a free upgrade. Great start. Our rooms were all spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. There was a very up to date fan on as we entered the room and this made us think uh oh, no air con! Well considering... More

We were given a present of a night at Milsoms - stayed last week. The staff are charming and helpful. A mojito on the Terrace before dinner was one of the best I have ever had. Our room - a standard room - was fine, with a very comfortable large bed, sofa, tea making facilities and a decent sized bathroom.... More

Fabulous setting. Sat out in the large garden area drinking wine. This is a must do if you are in this area. Food superb, and perhaps the best duck fat chips ever tasted! Rooms very nice, modern and very clean. Meal was not expensive,, but worth it. Staff nice, if a touch non communicative.

Our two nights were very good in this popular hotel. Room was very crisp with good posh bathroom and nice comfortable bed. It was however a bit small, but perfectly fine. The hotel is right next to the busy A12 but it could not be heard in our room or in the restaurant. The restaurant was also good but I'm... More

I have visited Milsoms to eat many times for years my daughter who is now 21 used to go when she was little and Mr G's Shephards pie was her favourite but always tried ours so now her favourite is different. Wonderful relaxing place to eat inside or outside. Staff always very friendly and nothing to much trouble. Always guaranteed... More

Went to Milsoms on the 6th may 2015 for my nan's Birthday, we hired out the library for the evening. The meal we had was amazing, I'm quite a fussy eater but the staff was very accommodating and allowed us to have the main menu instead of the special one you no ally would choose when you hire out the...

Having heard a lot about this place we decided to go for lunch. The menus were far too wordy. Too much text and confusing. We ordered curry and a burger, they were nice but nothing special. Very average indeed for the price.

I come to Milsoms very often as it is close to home, and I really like the food. I really like the new decoration in Milsoms, it's really good! I really like the food and drink at Milsoms but the Sunday lunches are a little overrated and not great. I have also stayed here once before and my room was... More
