Sunday Lunch

As a regular for Sunday lunch at the Mill, the food is always excellent. Service is outstanding to match. It truly is restaurant quality food at pub prices. Compliments to the chef and all the bar staff! Keep up the amazing work!

Been here a few times and each time food has been lovely. Big portions for kids also and the prices are reasonable. Nice little restaurant, clean and the staff are friendly enough

Food is always good but on a recent visit we were disappointed by the staff, generally disinterested and distracted. The pub is a little outdated internally and could do with some tlc - not normally a bother but add this to the attitude of the staff and it created a lacklustre and uninviting atmosphere. Food served up was decent enough... More

Have popped in a few times for a drink and sadly have never had a decent pint yet. The beer always tastes a bit off? And the last time especially was really warm so ended we ended up leaving most of our drinks. It's a shame because there is a lot of potential to be a great place to have... More

Good food, excellent service especially by Sam who could not have been more helpful. We called there for lunch after being at a hospital appointment. The choice of food was excellent, as was the value. There was also a menu for pensioners which was useful. The food was very well presented & very enjoyable. The only criticism was the fresh...

It's a step above run of the mill pub grub, by a long way. Maybe restaurant standard. Drink prices are less than restaurant but more than normal pub prices.

Visit this pub/restaurant on a regular basis. The staff are very friendly and the food served is excellent. Generous portions. The steak night (Mondays) is extremely good value for money. Soup with either Steak, salmon or gammon, glass of house wine or soft drink for two people less than £20. Haven't managed to ginish the meal yet!
