Excellent service

My wife and I decided to stay at The Old Mill for a couple of nights. We found the staff to be very friendly and the english breakfast was excellent. Also had an evening meal and it was lovely. Just one word of warning - don't buy the salad unless you're hungry. I had the 3 meat salad and it... read more

We had a great stay here for a family get together. Poor Tom was on his own most of the weekend as other staff didnt want to work. However, you would not have known it. The breakfast was hot and tasty and fresh and the bar service was great. Nice clean rooms and comfy beds. well done Tom. a one... More

Very friendly staff who provide a first class service. The room is cleaned every day with fresh towels too. The location is great with a friendly and beautiful peacock in the grounds. The food is good and very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend this Family run business. Robert

My husband and I have just returned home after spending 4 nights at The Old Mill. This was our second visit and there will most definitely be a third. On our first visit admittedly we found our room and ensuite very small but because the beds were clean and the food good we decided to give it another go -... More

The room I stayed in was appalling! Had asked for a double and got a twin bedded room. There was a dreadful smell emanating from the ensuite which nobody except Maria took seriously. The smell, a drain smell, was absolutely nauseating and made the whole room smell. Neither Tom nor Andrea said they could smell anything, but when I went... More

The staff were very welcoming, the bar was clean and the rooms were tidy and dust-free. Overall, staying at The Old Mill was a pleasant experience. I also received a postcard from them when I arrived home, which was a nice gesture.

All in all our experience was disappointing. Although my partner specifically asked if the steak and ale pie was actually home-made and receiving an affirmative answer, what they didn't tell her was that it was microwaved when ordered. (You can tell) It was tray baked and cut into portions, hers was dry round the edges and the pastry was crumbly.... More

Dear Geoff & Gina, Thank you for your review following your dining experience at The Old Mill Inn, we have since replaced our chef & are currently in the process of launching a new menu. I can only appologise that your wine resembled luke-warm tea; our regular customers prefer their wine a little above room temperature – I’m sure if... More
