Here for a family meal, staff very attentive and food very nice, be aware they do serve large portions, so no room for puds on this occasion! The garlic mushrooms were lovely as was the chicken dish I ordered. Lovely atmosphere for both groups and couples attending for a special occasion. Would recommend.

I'd not even noticed the place was there and was chatting to a local in the pub opposite and he recommended it. I had a standard focaccia bread which was light as a feather, which was just as well as it was massive, and the 5 cheese ravioli in a prawn and oyster sauce with wild mushrooms. I would go... More

Dined here with friends welcomed and served by friendly staff, food was enjoyed by all four in our party who choose different items from an extensive menu , good special board , lacked a bit of atmosphere music required to improve in my view , would definitely return.

Recently visited here with my girlfriend for a meal, we made a reservation prior as this place is popular. The restaurant is good - has about 10 tables. Atmosphere is nice. Price for food was pretty reasonable, £7 for starters and £10 pizzas and so on. Depends on what you want! Food was ok, nothing better than what I have... More

Some would say it's small, some would say it's intimate, but either way this is a gem. We used to go just as a couple but have taken the kids a few times and they love it as well. Foid is excellent, prices are low and you can't get a better setting than newmillerdam

Visiting my elderly parents in W Yorks, my father (in his 80's) booked for the 3 of us at this little venue. I was charmed by its location at the side of the dam, but even more impressed by how the space had been utilised. Staff were attentive and kind throughout-nothing too much. Drinks ordered were efficiently delivered. (mum asked... More
