After reading so many great reviews on trip advisor, we were a little let down by the experience. While the fish itself was delicious, the salads and sides we got to go with were very disappointing. The salad felt like something I could have made at home (think canned mandarin oranges on top of butter lettuce). They really pushed the... More

Outstanding food in a fun, relaxed environment. Jane explains all and the staff where hugely helpful with an undecided 11 year old. Good value - best to book

This restaurant has disapointed me in the quality of food served. My memories of Miller's Thumb were different. I found the taste and quality of food preparation very disapointing with a bland taste not fresh ingredients and oily and fatty. The portion was good the presentation was not bad but the taste just was not there. I also found the... More

The restaurant is so crammed that one cannot move. We ordered and not only was the food served incorrectly but three people from our party had to return their meals as the food was tasteless.

Fantastic fish - cooked to perfection with a great choice of wines by the glass or bottle. Very friendly staff - Jane really knows her food and is a fabulous hostess. We visited several times and were equally impressed on each occasion. Definitely 5 stars for this restaurant, chef and front of house staff.

I liked how the owner of the restaurant knows her food very well and described personally how the different dishes were prepared. The food was also done very well. There was a wide selection but the fish dishes were the best.

From the warm welcome to the friendly staff and delicious fare, a regular visit to Miller's Thumb is a must. My husband said his Cajun Bluenose last night was the best fish he had ever eaten at any restaurant. I always have Penne Luca, creature of habit that I am, which never disappoints. The helping is so generous I always... More
