Ate here on Wednesday evening. The place was very quiet, possibly due to the new reopening of the Spread Eagle up the road. I had the haddock and chips, my wife tandoori chicken. Both meals were perfect in every way. Service was efficient also. Very enjoyable

The two of us attended the Millstone for an evening meal, albeit probably earlier than most people would consider having their evening meal. Despite this the staff were all extremely attentive and helpful and nothing seemed too much for them.

Many Thanks for such a glowing review, it really does motivate all the team when we read such feedback.

We were invited here with 20 others for a 98th birthday meal. The group consisted of a number of families with children aged 3, 5 and 6. We were welcomed by Chef Patron Anson who showed us to our table and gave us our menus. We had our own corner of the restaurant which was great for the children as... More

Having tried Anson's food and beer matching at the Good Food show we had high expectations for our night’s stay and evening meal and I'm glad to say we weren't disappointed. We’d booked to stay one night B&B with evening meal and arrived earlier and had no problems checking in and our room was nice and well presented and the... More

Stayed midweek and had a few issues with the room that the staff were fantastic in solving. TV did not work so was offered a laptop to use instead. Evening meal was very good and the breakfast was brilliant. All the staff were very helpful and concerned that guests enjoyed their stay.

We paid full price for one of the county rooms; simply because they were larger than the classic rooms. Well, I'd hate to see the size of a classic. Room was pathetically tiny. Website brags 'fresh milk', 'fluffy bathrobes', 'homemade biscuits'. In reality what you get in a room for 2 people is 4 horrible little cartons of long life... More

Many Thanks for your feedback I sincerely apologize that your stay didn't live up to expectations. Unfortunately there was an oversight within our housekeeping department which lead to your room being set for one guest as oppose to two. We offer a flask of cold milk as standard on arrival and again I apologize this didn't happen, as a result... More

We visited The Millstone tonight after not having visited for a while. The service was very efficient, the mains lovely, although my fish meal could have had a few more chips on the plate, and we shared a knickerbocker glory which was lovely. A very enjoyable meal.
