We went twice to the Watermill as we had heard it was dog friendly and it was , and we also fancied the home brew. On both times it was quite busy, but didn't have a long wait for the food. Food was good both times and excellent value for money, and the quaintly named beers that we tried were... More

We ate in the Watermill as it is dog friendly and my husband liked the look of the micro brewery! Lovely atmosphere and very busy so make sure you arrive early if you want to eat. Food is good and excellent value for money. If I was in the area again I would definitely return.

Having been so impressed by our stay here at Christmas, we returned for a short 3 night break. We were given the same room and enjoyed the food and drink as much, if not more, than last time, Still haven't tried all the beers as some of the guest beers were different again to last time. They do offer sampler... More

We stumbled on the Watermill some time ago when we stopped in for a pint & something to eat on the way home from the Lakes, noting that it was dog friendly we decided to come back and stay over. It was all good, room was great, evening meal was good, choice of beers/whiskys extensive, breakfast was good and service... More

We as a family of 7 after reading the reviews decided to try watermill inn for evening meal well how disappointed we all were. Service was very slow the young lady behind the bar was more interested in her mobile phone than the waiting puplic at the bar. Food very expensive for the quality. No home made chips just your...

Although we only called in for sandwich and nearly missed the pub altogether i have to write that it was fantastic and there are plenty of beers to chose from and staff accommodation and friendly. Will call again and have told plenty of people to do the same.

I stayed here 1 night when going to a cookery course nearby. I had the single room no.3 It's tiny. It was all right for me as I had minimal luggage but if you have lots of luggage it would be a squeeze. The pub food,and beer where excellent. The service was a disorientating mix of friendly and absolutely awful.... More

We had visited the Watermill In late last year for food and drinks and were given a very warm welcome with two dogs. As it's one of a few places that accept dogs to stay in your room we decided that we'd have to return and stay the night. We were given a very warm welcome when we arrived, in... More

Once again a great time at this Excellent hostelry, a lovely easily accessible pub (though parking can be a problem). The rooms are well equipped and always spotlessly clean with en-suite facilities and if you wish to take your dog they are given a very warm welcome. As well as a marvellous selection of beers brewed on site (all with... More
