Standards are constant (thus the tongue in cheek header for this post). I really don’t mind paying a few quid more to get a better quality meal. Service is splendid (with one exception). Locations are super, buildings and access for the less able bodied has been thought through and helps make the experience special. I would like to thank whoever... More

Took my daughter here for a birthday afternoon tea treat, £17.50p each for a pot of tea a sandwich each a cream scone without much cream and 3 small cakes! Ok so the building and grounds are fantastic but we didn't experience the great atmosphere that we hear about so much. At the end of the meal we had to... More

This is a fantastic restaurant in a great building, with a lovely view over their gardens. Food and service are very good but they could do with changing their menu more often as we eat here a lot and it never seems to change. Still very nice though.

Visited this restaurant on a weekday evening. Busy restaurant but didn't get the feeling of being cramped in & there was no rushing to turnover diners. Lovely building, would be beautiful to sit outside in the warmer, lighter months. Staff very polite & courteous..Service was very good & wasn't kept waiting for anything. Starters arrived & was very well presented... More

Dined here on Saturday evening with friends and wasn't dissappointed. An excellent experience with staff looking after us from the moment we arrived. A little on the expensive side but well worth the extra cost. The meals we choose from the menu were all different, these arrived in good time and were hot and well presented. Although it was fairly... More

8 of us went to for dinner Saturday night. 50th birthday celebration. Arrived at 6:30pm we were advised the wait would be 1 hour to 90 minutes. We were still waiting at 8:15, and the waiter said there was another big party before us which was strange as they were not there when we arrived. We finally got to the... More

Food good but inside restaurant very noisy - may just have been unlucky that on the night we visited there were two hen parties who made a lot of noise.

We have eaten at Milsoms regularly since it opened, as it is very local to us and we love the ambience, and staff so much, it really is a wonderful place to enjoy a meal. My only complaint is that the food, as great as it is, is not really changed often enough, even the specials menu is the same... More

I've been here twice. The first time was awful but you always wonder if it was just a fluke so you go again. That's me done now. The first time, the service was so appalling but the lovely manager knocked our bar bill off which was nice but didn't actually make up for our rubbish night. The second time we... More
