Once again we have had an excellant meal. Pork and beef so tender it melted in your mouth, great variety of fresh local vegetables. Cherry cheese cake was gorgeous. Worth every penny. The staff are so welcoming and nothing is to much trouble for them even though we had not booked. We sat on the patio with fabulous views over... More

Having just returned from a week at The Olive Mill I am still reflecting on the experience. The curtain rail fell down every morning; the shower hose managed to choke itself of water for two days, the breakfast service is unusually late - 8 am start and they ran out of ice, ice cream and one lager. However, the food... More

We have been here for a meal on a couple of occasions now and the staff are always friendly and helpful. No matter what I have ordered off the menu it has always been delicious and presented beautifully.

If you really like good food, if you want to choose from a really interesting menu, if you want good service, if you want comfortable surroundings, then go to The Olive Mill. Easy parking and the sea food soup is to die for, my absolute favourite. Hurray for a family run business.

We were looking for lunch on our way to a holiday weekend and were quite late for lunch. We received a very warm welcome nevertheless and ordered from the lunch menu. Both starters and both mains were absolutely wonderful we can certainly highly recommend it. I ordered the fish and chips and surprisingly the haddock arrived un-battered but was so... More

Looking at the website, the billed as luxury accommodation seemed perfect for an overnight stay. When we arrived the girl at reception was very friendly and took us to our room, but as we walked up the stairs it smelt musty already and a bit dingy. The door to our room was thin plywood and didn't shut easily; inside can... More
