Stayed in the area for a week and found the Mill on our last night. Wish we had found it sooner as it was the best we visited all week. Doubt that I have ever had a friendlier welcome in a pub. Food was lovely and promptly served, the beer was good too. Nearby table had a child's birthday party... More

We had Sunday lunch and couldn't fault the menu, the service or the price. I have visited this pub on 4 different occasions and it never fails to deliver good quality food and plenty of it. The homemade Yorkshire puddings were huge and tasty, there was plenty of vegetables and meat. I had the beef while my brother had the... More

We went as a family tonight for my husbands birthday tea. The staff could not be more friendly, very attentive table service. We opted for steak with peppercorn sauce, mixed grill and the boys had homemade burgers. All of a high standard and presented well. I would highly recommend and we will return.

We have been regulars here for some time and the food is excellent - good traditional pub food. The only draw back is at the times the staff could be a little happier. It's certainly worth calling in for Sunday lunch which is superb

I have been a regular customer of The Mill in Houghton-le-Spring for over ten years now. Over the years I, and my family and friends, have been very impressed with the quality of food offered, and the friendly and efficient service we have received. This has encouraged not only regular weekly visits by myself for evening meals and Sunday lunch,... More

If you want a hearty meal with that 'home cooked' feel, it's hard to beat this pub/restaurant. The Mill offers a wide range of food on the menu and does not skimp on quatities! The Asian Beef Salad is especially lovely. Drinks a little pricey, but the pub is well maintained, offering a good atmosphere in a very pleasant location.
