I have recently returned to The Millstone for a third visit and again I have nothing but positive things to say. All three courses tasted amazing and they were presented to a high standard. Everything seems such reasonably priced for the standard you receive. The atmosphere of the restaurant is enjoyable and relaxed, we especially love sitting in the lounge... More

I ate at The Millstone last night with my family and we had a lovely meal. We all had different starters and mains which were really well presented and very tasty. There was a great choice of dishes across the main menu and specials board - I had a really nice salmon dish off the specials. The wine was good... More

The Millstone just appears to be a pub from the front. The decor is beautiful and it is nicely laid out. I was disappointed that only Sunday lunch menu available however when the food arrived it made up for it. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was great and we will definitely be coming here again.

We came here for a Sunday lunch in February and we are glad we did. The starters were served very promptly and the garlic bread was very tasty. The soup could have been a bit more flavorsome but overall was still good and it was great to see it served with home made warm bread. Couldn't fault the main meals... More

Girlie night out. We had different starters and main courses. All the food was beautifully presented and most importantly tasted good. We were well looked after; the service was attentive without being intrusive. Reasonably priced for the quality of food. Great atmosphere and I will be going back next time i am in the area.

Went there for an anniversary dinner. The food, service and ambience were excellent. Can even give 10 out of 10 to the loos! We will definitely be back. This restaurant will be a real asset to the village.

I recently went here for a birthday meal and was extremely impressed by the friendly, efficient service, impressive menu and lovely atmosphere. I ordered steak which was delicious and the sharing plate of desserts went down extremely well with my four friends! It's great to have discovered somewhere serving high quality food and service in the local area. Looking forward... More
