This is the first time for us. From the moment we walk in we were made to feel welcome. We had no reservation but a table was made available with no fuss. The food and service was totally first class together with unbelievable presentation of the dishes served. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience. Cannot recommend the Millstone... More

Booked a meal here with our friends and was very impressed. Food was excellent with a good menu choice. The quality and presentation was first class, our only minor criticism was the cheese board which we found a little bland. A very comfortable venue along with excellent service. No hesitation in recommending anyone to try it.

Second time visit and better than first. Booked for 7.30 so rather quiet but lovely table by window overlooking outside area. Food superb ! ( hubby bought chef a pint) after an amazing scallop starter struggled to eat my fish pie so had it boxed up to bring home. Hubby had pork fillet - beautiful presentation. Well recommended - oh...

I've been several times before with friends but I suggested here for my mums birthday tea. The food as always was lovely and mum said she was very impressed with the place and food. The staff were lovely as always. The only downside was that mum said some of her dessert was still frozen so she just left that part... More

The Millstone is a real gem, and it's always great to eat there. We have been a number of times since it opened last autumn, and have never been disappointed. A great variety of dishes, backed up with a top selection of beers and ales, wines, snacks – and all with a top notch staff – this place really is... More

I heard some good reports so decided to visit for lunch on Tuesday 29/9/15. The menu had some interesting choices and had a great starter to share with some good home made items, followed by the haddock and chips which has fantastic crispy batter and perfect chips. Save room for the desserts, which has some great choices. We had the... More

We booked a party of 12 for 8.15pm. We thought there was a bar at the restaurant so came out from Chester after the races about and hour earlier than we had booked to have a drink before our meal. Unfortunately the bar isn't really a bar as such - just a few seats and HUGE coffee tables (totally taking... More
