Chose to go on one of their offers, 'Spring into Summer', excellent value and the meal was brilliant. I took my partner there as a surprise and the staff accommodated for this and kept the secret of us staying the night under wraps :) Would definitely go back for a meal and even a stay.

We booked this for our first wedding anniversary, as we wanted a steak meal , few drinks throughout the day, and a hearty breakfast the morning after. We decided to take advantage of the summer offer in the themed room. (Number 36). We were extremely happy with everything we experienced. Staff were polite, friendly, and keen to make our stay...

Congratulations on your first wedding anniversary & thank you for choosing the Millstone for such a special occasion. We're really glad you enjoyed your meal, we're very fortunate to have a great butcher who sources our beef from surrounding farms. That said I'm sure our chefs will want to take some credit as well. We hope to welcome you back... More

Used this hotel/restaurant for a family event. Had a meal booked and some of us decided to stay over. No complaints about the meal itself, lovely food, service etc.The room we had was nice and clean but basic,and not really worth £60. The matress was uncomfortable and being right at the back right next to the main road we had... More

Many thanks for your feedback. Whilst it was really pleasing to hear you and your family enjoyed their evening with us I was really disappointed to see your stay didn't live up to expectations. In our defence you chose the Room only option when making your reservation online and this was stated in the confirmation you received. Our breakfast menu... More

The Millstone is a hotel / pub / restaurant run by Thwaites - therefore excellent beers. Our room this time was good although at the back - we prefer the small suite when we can book it. The food is good and plentiful. For my vegetarian taste a tad heavy - onion bhajees for e.g. huge and greasy, but our... More

Many Thanks for your lovely feedback, we are indeed very proud of our Thwaites Ales and really excited at the recent news that the new brewery will be located just down the hill in Mellor Brook, so our wonderful Dray Horses Bomber & Wainwright won't have as far to travel.

I decided to visit the Millstone Restaurant after seeing favourable reviews and a return visit after quite a while. Simple booking online the day before for 7.30pm on Saturday and a response very quick to confirm.

We have just got back from a lovely relaxing weekend at the Millstone Hotel. Our room was lovely and cosy and very tastefully decorated, as is the rest of the hotel. The food is absolutely fantastic and the service from the very friendly staff was top quality. Would highly recommend a nice relaxing weekend here.

We visited just the restaurant with family & myself and another person decided to have the roast with no meat as we're veggie and the chef offered to make nut roast especially for us. I have never come across a chef so accommodating before, especially as we didn't even ask him to make us something veggie. The food was fantastic.... More
