Good food and service

Enjoyed a meal here which was excellent though the Irish coffee and hot chocolate was a let down. Will use again but not on a regular basis

We have been using the Old Mill for quite some time now and since we got our little dog two years ago it was always difficult finding places to eat so we asked the Old Mill if they allowed dogs expecting the same answer we always get but they couldn't have been more accommodating and each time we go in...

We ate there on 1st Feb 16. The mash was like wall paper paste and had a crust on it. The chips are frozen. Nothing good about it at all

Went for a drink at 22.30 pm Jan 12. knowing the trouble they had over Christmas I thought I would show my support. However when I arrived I was greeted with the doors closed lights off and two staff members walking out the staff door Smoking. Perhaps you don't need our money

WELL DONE all the staff and chefs. Just enjoyed a wonderfull meal, the service and quality of the food was fantastic and we could not find fault with anything, especially given the fact that just a few weeks ago this lovely place fell victim to the boxing day floods.

Partner ordered Sunday lunch and it came out minus some of the veg that was listed to be with it. I had lasagne it wasn't anything overly great to write about just average pub food. It was a busy day in there which could explain why standards slipped as we have been before and had much better. Staff were apologetic... More

I was happy with the service they provided but unfortunately the food they served me was like it was bought from a frozen food shop. I have had a decent food from here in the past, but im going back a few years ago. It will be a few more years before i return again.

We went for Christmas lunch on 9 December in a party of 50. No attempt had been made to put tables together, so many of us were sitting at tables for 2 or 4. My king prawns in the cocktail were absolutely tasteless, all the vegetables were obviously frozen rather than fresh, and some of them needed attacking with a... More

My friend and I have just visited this restaurant. We usually do each Christmas to exchange presents and enjoy the food. First of all there was a mix up on the food and what was available. Then I ordered rose wine but got the white version. Then I asked for chips but got mash. The whole place seemed a little... More
