We had an excellent lunch at the Mill Race. Interesting starters, deliciious roasts and great puds. The restaurant is nice and informal, service attantive but not obtrusive. Will certainly try to visit again.

Found it by accident and have been back several times since. Fabulous locally sourced food in a lovely setting. The supplier evenings are a must and great value for money. Excellent, down to earth service. A regular haunt for my friends and I and worth the travel from South Wales for a lovely evening

Visited early in the week and was surprised by the amount of people already dining. There is a good range on the menu and also a specials board. The food was locally sourced, cooked and presented with flair. We received nothing but superb service during our visit and will definitely return for more wonderful tasty treats.

The Mill Race is popular and gets busy at weekends. We went for a mid-week dinner. The specials board was one of the best I've seen. Service left nothing out. It was a wonderful meal - from an imaginative serving of fish and chips to very tasty local lamb. We'll go again mid-week.

Came for a birthday meal with my husband and some friends. We had the seafood platter and the spring lamb. We could not finish the mains as there was so much! But we couldn't forego a lovely pudding to finish off the evening. The service was excellent, special treatment as it was my birthday meal! We all had a wonderful... More

I recently ate here with two friends and whilst the food was excellent the service was awful and by management!!! One waitress working was lovely and apologetic for our delay but as for the Manager who took our order it was a different story, one of the most rudest if not the rudest person i have come across. She didn't... More
