The Help Out Mill...helps out yet again!

The second time we have eaten here and it doesn't fail to impress. We took my mum and dad over this time (their first time there) and they say definitely be going back. The food was delicious especially the home made desserts. The table is booked for the evening so no rush

The Help Out Mill has become one of our firm favourites and is right up there amongst our best restaurants for a quality dinning experience and night out. We love the drive across the fields and walking over the bridge over the Mill Stream from the parking 'field'. The Mill buildings are adjacent to farm buildings and out buildings converted... More

I loved it. From the moment we arrived we felt extremely comfortable and were made most welcome by our host. There were only a dozen diners (including us 2) so the restaurant wasn't heaving but it still had a lovely atmosphere. The décor is slightly odd but this only adds to the experience. The way I'd describe the food would... More

We booked as a party of four 7pm on a Saturday night. The Help Out Mill is set in the countryside in NW Leicestershire, and can take a few minutes to find at night. Navigating by postcode Google maps takes you to the end of the drive. Tip: look for the lights across the field. We drove up the gravel... More

A little hard to find but what a lovely place when you manage to get in! We had a private party this weekend with almost 35 people and the food was homely and tasty, the desserts were terrific (I mean, homemade dessert trolley, come on!), and the service was exceptional. Peter, Eliot, and their family made ours feel so welcome,... More

Situated amongst a ramshackle group of old buildings at the end of a track on the outskirts of a small village, it's not the easiest place to find, but well worth the bother. This is an informal and unstuffy little restaurant run by a delightful husband & wife team serving good traditional English fare in gloriously old-fashioned and comfortable surroundings:... More

What a great, chilled out evening, the chance to chill out in front of the fire with a drink before being led upstairs for dinner was great. The food was spot on at a reasonable price and the laid back but efficient attitude was refreshing. Its remoteness could detract for some but we liked it.

It is so lovely to have an aperitif in the bar before going upstairs to the restaurant for dinner. Front of house hosts Peter and Eliot are excellent instantly putting you into a relaxed mood.

It is like visiting your friends home. The warm welcome, very relaxed atmosphere, roaring log fire, and wonderful home cooked food mean you can't help but unwind and feel happy. Every course was cooked to perfection, especially the beef hotpot with gravy to die for. The vegetables were also wonderful and cooked exactly as I like. They created a pudding... More
