My friends and I have eaten here a few times and whilst the food is expensive enough that we can't afford it too often, it's reasonable enough to warrant a visit every now and then. The food has always been of a consistently high standard and service to match. Their burger is no ordinary burger, I highly recommend! Our favourite... More

Having stayed at Le Talbooth, and Kesgrave Hall, and having such brilliant times at both at both establishments, we thought we would give Milsoms a try, how we wished we hadn't...On arrival we were met by a very abrupt receptionist who asked if we were there to check in, we confirmed we were, she immediately printed out a form and...

Thought we were going to have a meal and overnight stay to celibate my birthday. On arrival was shown to our room (no 7) very well decorated clean and comfortable with a very good satellite package. When going down to dinner all our friends and family were there so was quite a large group. Food was great with good serving... More

Wine list - excellent if inflated in price Food - thoroughly unremarkable- veggie options limited and dull (girlfriend not me!) Service - dreadful - White wine ordered with starter, turned up for main course. Two consecutive waiters had no idea what an item on the menu actually was. Ridiculous form filling self order system. Lea and Perrins poured on suit.... More

Had lunchtime meal with colleagues from work and as always the food was excellent, service was good, came back week later in evening with friends and had very enjoyable evening. It's always very busy, not surprisingly. Highly recommend.

Recently had dinner for 12 in the library for a works outing. The food from the set menu was all very good and the environment was very pleasant there is a good wine list not too expensive and over all the night was a success. The only failings were in the quality of service, I would describe it as hap... More

Having been given a voucher for my birthday, we decided to chose Milsoms for D/d/breakfast. Having had lunch there many times it is a favourite of ours. We were given a De Luxe room, a bottle of Prosecco waiting on us in the room, wonderful meal and an excellent breakfast. All the staff are very pleasant so top marks for... More

2nd stay on business, the staff are extremely friendly without being over the top, the rooms are lovely and the complimentary soft drinks in the mini bar is a nice touch. But the main reason to visit this gem is the food.

We visited this establishment yesterday and I was a little disappointed with part of the service offered. We were a party of six, we all had three course, food was good with generous portions. The biggest let down was near the end of service we all ordered cocktails at an average cost of £7. I had a mojito at a... More
