faultless. attentive but not overbearing staff who were friendly and well informed. great atmosphere with a roaring log fire keeping the place really warm (warning .. don't overdress on a cold night like I did!!). comprehensive wine list with some wonderful pinots, and the waitresses recommendation of the signature desert was spot on (chocolate and raspberry assiette )

Came for my father in laws birthday recently and was absolutely blown away! Firstly by the service from start to end, the best fine dining experience I've had, everything was just so professional! The food was amazing and none of us would change a single thing. Presentation was stunning and tasted even better. I had a curry from the Kobi... More

Great service. Tasty, inventive food attractively presented. My husband and I each had duck, but different dishes. One from the Grill menu and one off the Main menu. Both were excellent. The desserts were works of art they were so beautiful.

We had read good reviews and decided as we were staying on site at the resort to go to their fine dining restaurant. From the time we entered the restaurant the service was top notch. The food was of a high standard, unfortunately we were full and could not do dessert so decided to return the next evening just for... More

Idyllic spot by the lake at Millbrook - especially nice on a warm evening sitting outside. Nice food, though we only tried the standard menu which was pretty normal.

I don't know if it is possible to meaningfully add to the splendid reviews of Millhouse Restaurant. Wonderful ambience; warm and welcoming on a cold June evening; Fabulous food, and each member of the table staff was friendly and very helpful. Our meal was created, constructed and presented by artistic, masterful chefs with an obvious love for their art. This... More

Absolutely loved this restaurant. We were there for my partner's birthday, and were treated to drinks and the most amazing dessert in celebration. The staff are highly professional and friendly, without being intrusive. They're also extremely knowledgable about the local produce. Cant wait to visit this restaurant again!

I'm afraid that while the service couldn't be faulted this attempt at fine dining disappointed. I tried the lamb from the fine dining menu. The shank was good but half fat. The rest of what was on the plate was an example of someone who had had lots of training in various methods but couldn't bring them together. The potato... More

Great food and great service. We really enjoyed it. We would have liked a table by the fire but it was still lovely.
