Another enjoyable visit to The Millstone in Pen-y-ffordd. This time it was for Sunday lunch and the food was good, whilst the ambience was relaxed, comfortable and bustling. It was all you might want from a visit to a village restaurant! Keep it up Millstone :-)

Visited yesterday as a party of five for a Sunday roast. Service was good, food was tasty and served quickly. Personally, my beef wasn't cooked as well as I would have liked but that is just personal preference and on our next visit, i will make sure to request my meat more well done. Will definitely be returning!

At the party, all food was served together - Ie no one was left waiting whilst everyone else was ready to eat! There is an excellent... More
