First impressions were that its a little run down. The menu was a fixed price for 2 or 3 courses with a good choice, but the standard was only average and we thought the steak pie at least was bought in and frozen. Lovely setting and we just thought much more could be made of it!

For my last visit I took the family to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant is family run, so you get a mixture of informality and efficiency. I rate the food excellent and the value superb. What else is there to say? It is also a very pleasant run out in the summer

We reserved the ground floor area for our annual car club dinner. This was my first visit and I was much impressed by the view over the mill pool that gives the place its name. We were a large party but in spite of this we were catered for very well. The staff were friendly and helpful and the ambience... More

Lovely restaurant overlooking the pool. Friendly staff, good Sunday lunch, cosy surroundings. The ice cream sundae was disappointing - this always seem to do much better in tall glass rather than a bowl. The beef however was cooked perfectly and you were given the choice of pink or more well done.

I was in a large birthday party (of 14) in Saturday night. After reading some of the reviews I wasn't expecting much. We had the fixed 2 course menu, which at £15 per head I think was good value. Portions were generous and the food hot and tasty; all served around the same time which is pretty good considering there... More

The restaurant is very tired and in desparate need of renovation. You have to walk up dirty external stairs and enter the restaurant through what looks like a fire door. The menu choice is poor and doesn't appeared to have changed since our last visit 7 years ago which can also be said for the decor. There was no atmosphere... More

Restaurant - outdated and dirty. Service - passable for polite but that's where it ends. Our drinks order was taken and then our meal order. Food - Starter arrived and one meal was incorrect. When we questioned the waiter he said it was right but then we questioned it with the waitress who took our order and she confirmed it... More

Beautifully prepared/displayed afternoon tea, making the experience feel like a very special treat. We will most certainly be returning in the very near future, and would highly recommend it
