Our second visit to The Mill Race whilst staying with friends in the area. We enjoyed a superb three course Sunday lunch and have to say I couldn't fault the food, staff or surroundings. It ticks all of the boxes as far as vague for money goes as well. Wine recommendations on the menu for each course is another great... More

We went for lunch on a quiet weekday and most of the food we had was excellent. My husband particularly enjoyed his warm scotch egg starter, which was cooked to perfection with a nice runny yolk. The beautifully presented winter salad was also lovely with lots of interesting ingredients. The highlight of the meal for me was the ginger parkin,... More

Went for a lunch with my girlfriend. The food was OK, she had a steak, I had battered haddock. The thing that let it down slightly was the fact that there was a live maggot or caterpillar (I'm not sure which) in my tartar sauce. Obviously they replaced the tartar sauce but I'd pretty much finished the meal by then.... More

We went on Sunday evening and they had had a busy day. It would have been helpful if the waiter told us what was not available ( quite a lot) before we made our selections.His attitude was not helpful. In desperation we decided to have pizzas - only to be told that they didn't have enough dough to make the... More

Recently went to this restaurant for lunch on the Christmas menu. On arrival the room looked suitable festive with nice Christmas decorations and a glowing wood burning stove. To give the place even more festive cheer there was mulled wine for sale. The food was excellent. Served hot, nicely presented and each course delicious. Staff are all friendly and the... More

10 adults & a toddler had Saturday lunch. We pre-ordered but unfortunately the email was not received so we had to order from the menu on arrival. Despite this, the food arrived quickly.

Travelled from Warwickshire to have Sunday lunch with relatives from South Wales. Very warm welcome with pleasant young staff being appropriately attentive. Cannot understand some of the negative comments - don't recognise them. We all enjoyed ourselves very much. Excellent food prepared just as we asked. My pork loin was especially good. Plenty of vegetables. For a Sunday the menu... More

I treated my wife to a meal out at our local pub today. Unfortunately we are restricted in what we would call local pub. So many good family and traditional locals have closed over the past 5 years that we are left with little choice. I found the Mill Race to be way over priced for what they serve. The... More
