Nicest Sunday lunch in the area. Only downside being collectively the most abrupt /ignorant barstaff I've ever came across

I dropped into the Mill for lunch on 9th June with 2 customers and can highly recommend the food here. There is a wide menu to suit any mood and the service is very good. There is a large car park and the proximity of the Mill to the adjacent business park means it is ideally suited for a business... More

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

The pub is a little outdated internally and could do with some tlc - not normally a bother but add this to the attitude of the staff and it created a lacklustre and uninviting atmosphere.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
