Been here one day whilst passing through, the food was mediocre at best, the service was good and the staff were friendly but nice food is what I was hoping to be paying for and sadly didn't get! Won't be going again!

Excellent Food, Service and Ambience. Restaurant designed well and seating well spaced. Overall well worth a visit. Our visit was late afternoon but we plan to return with friends for an evening visit quite soon.

After not being able to book anywhere for Sunday lunch on Mother's Day, my sister and I booked here for the night before. Best decision in a long time. It's a bit further than our usual, being 10/15 mins further than Chester but it has definitely made it into the list of regulars to visit. The food was exceptional. Every... More

We have tried many restaurants on Mother's Day over the years and have had our share of bad food and poor service but not this year. The Millstone provided us with a fabulous meal and dining experience. The menu was excellent with good choices and at £23 per head fantastic value for 3 courses plus coffee and home made biscuits....

Visited the Millstone last night for the first time since it changed hands and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The food was faultless and I cant praise the chargrilled steak with garlic mash enough - it was one of the nicest meals I have ever had. My husband and friend raved over the lamb. The deserts (Banofee mess and peanut... More

One again I found myself in The Millstone for a quick pint that ended up turning in to a full family meal (that's the second time this week, no kidding!). Today we were lucky enough to get a table & I am, once again, very pleased that we did. The food here is always really very nice - there is... More

What a fantastic meal! We arrived early on a Friday evening without booking and they kindly managed to squeeze us in. The meal was prompt and incredibly tasty. I cannot fault it, we will be back xxx

Visited the Millstone a couple of weeks ago with our daughters (12 & 10). The meals were lovely, the childrens menu had just enough to choose from & it was nice they could have a starter too. Decor is smart, staff were friendly without being obtrusive and the lemon pepper chicken is a winner. We will be back soon
