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...

Regular visitors to the Mill Inn always good food and decent value for money. Service is always excellent. Certainly a good venue for excellent pub food.

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!

Eaten here a few times over the past year. Made a reservation for 7 people and no problems with getting seated, ordering and receiving the food. Everything was good and quite prompt, so more than happy. Only down side was they run out of choices on desserts, so had to choose another selection, still enjoyed it though. Will definitely go...

We visited on Nov 4th - we were shown to a table and nobody came to take our order. We therefore went to the bar to order our drinks. I asked the girl to open a tab so that we could pay with the meal, but informed her that I did not know the table number as there wasn't one.... More
