Good solid 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

Our first visit to The Mill and we were not disappointed. Booked table for two for 12 o'clock as I thought they would be busy later on. Good thing we booked as when we were shown to our table it was already very busy and no wonder as the food was delicious! I had pork with lovely vegetables and the... More

Had a great night in here. Staff were very friendly and pleasant. Food was lovely and plentiful. Drinks prices were very good. A double brandy for under three pounds. Pub right across from the bus stop which costs £3.20 for a day rider. Well worth it. We used it to go into the harbour. xx.

Love that no matter when i go, The Mill has always got something nice to eat, cooked to perfection, a friendly smile behind the bar and a lovely atmosphere to relax in. Love going. Really enjoy the food.
