Milsoms is a lovely place to visit when the sun is shining and it is very handy that they are open all day. I think the food could be improved but it is still good stuff. I think people assume that Milsoms is going to be mega posh due to the amazing settings the place is within but its not,... More

Milsoms Kesgrave Hall must be my (our) all time favourite place to eat. The setting is amazing and the large out door space is great for kids to run around on before during and after an amazing meal. I can't fault the food, the staff or the setting and just keep on returning.......

As usual great visit. Arrived for Sunday lunch and good job we got there early as soon filled up!! OUR service was excellent, and we served and ate 3 courses before the 2 12 seater tables received anything...except for apologies from the management. Sadly as it is so cramped a lot of bored children were very loud (poor parenting not... More

After being recommended my hubby & I visited for the first time. We where so shocked to see food & empty beer bottles littering the patio area. Service was slow. We had an Americano which my hubby enjoyed. My tea was weak & the milk was on the turn. We ordered 2 identical desserts. The icecream was lovely but the... More

As other reviewers have said, Milsoms don't accept bookings and it you are a large party this can work against you on a busy day. But, it is clear they don't need to change their booking policy as they are a vibrant and popular restaurant and not short of customers. So a quiet and relaxing afternoon tea it wasn't but... More

A couple friends and I had afternoon tea at Milsoms at the weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed not only the delicious food but the surrounding too. We had a lovely selection of sandwiches, a homemade scone with jam and cream, also 4 different cakes each. You can have tea or coffee and have a refills. The staff were great and the... More

I have been to Milsoms a few times and it always has good service and good food. Most recently we went to celebrate a birthday and the menu had changed from our previous visit but there was still a huge amount of choice. It is lovely to sit outside overlooking the grounds but it can get busy and you are... More

This was our second visit in a matter of weeks and both times we were very lucky in getting a table immediately, the food was very good on both occasions. We do find that sometimes sitting next to the kitchen can be very off putting with the 'shouting' coming from the staff within. The waiting staff are excellent and the... More

Found the place in a beautiful location with the friendly staff. Strange for the class of restaurant you take your own order to the desk but spend up the service. The good was beautiful but bit on the expensive side, but you soon forget this with the surroundings and service.

I did not stay in the hotel so I cannot comment on the rooms but from what I could see the service, food and cleanliness were excellent! The starter of haddock, egg, mashed potato and mustard was amazing and could have been a main itself but the steak blew me away! Definitely one of the top 5 steaks I've ever... More
