We ate at the Mill Race on Sat 27 June as a celebration and the food was great and service pretty good. In general the food is really very good there but this time we were a little disappointed, but didn't want to say anything to staff as overall it didn't really impact our enjoyment and after the focaccia incident...

My husband and I, along with some friends booked a table for an early birthday treat. We all chose to eat from the specials board where 3 courses are available for £21.95 per person. My husband did not like the selection of 3 starters, so an alternative was requested. We were not disappointed. My starter was scallops with chorizo dressed... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch today and each had a two-course meal from the daily specials board - £14.50 each. The food was excellent (ham hock terrine, haddock and chips and broccoli, stilton and pancetta, sole and roasted herby potatoes). The waitresses were very good - friendly and just the right level of attentiveness. With two large... More

We are happy to often visit the Mill Race and love everything, from Ana and Adrian at front of house, through to Richard and Ellis and other staff in front of and behind the salamander. The food is always excellent, with the amazing wine menu and we struggled to choose our food last week as the whole menu was phenomenal.... More

Following recommendation from family, had a delightful meal here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Very attentive staff, great choice of wine, food was really delicious! We shared the rib of beef platter which was fabulous. Followed this with custard tart for me and strawberry platter for my husband, both really tasty. Would definitely visit again.
