I have been to the Mill Race a number of times and really like the food and the surroundings, but the manager behind the bar is very surley. I don't feel welcomed by him and actually feel that we are a nuisance and an imposition. Improvement here would make this a 5 star review, but I'm afriad the service is... More

We went at the recommendation of our B&B owner. It was a Sunday evening when the menu is the same as the lunch - just for information. We had an excellent wood pigeon starter and the best tasting beef burger I can remember. No need for any condiments! Service friendly and helpful. Maybe a tad more expensive than many pubs... More

The Mill Race is one of only a handful of restaurants open on a Monday night in Ross unless you want a curry. We booked 3 weeks in advance and were advised that this particular Monday was an Italian night, a set menu at £18 a head. We were told at the time of booking we would be seated upstairs.... More

This is only a few miles from our house and as such have been a few times. It's always very good. The restaurant itself is nice and comfortable relaxed, smart and tidy without being to formal. Service is warm and friendly. Food is very good with plenty of locally sourced offerings and the price is reasonable.

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

Great food nice choice of toppings - I had goats cheese caramelised onions and spinach. Would go again especially when they have pizza offers on Tuesdays. Our meals were lovely but not all... More
