Converted from an old mill, the now quiet pub comes with 2 floors of comfortable seats and fantastic food, fresh drinks and staff who want to be there not just paid to! Would go back just to have food there!

Have been holidaying at Golden Coast for years and have previously found The Mill to be a good place to eat with good home cooked fresh food. This holiday, the portion sizes from the set meal menu have shrunk and don't appear as freshly cooked as before so probably would go elsewhere except for carvery nights which are still great... More

We stayed at the Golden Coast Holiday Park and wouldn't rush back there either. On our second night we decided to eat at the Old Mill as it was on site and within walking distance. It was a surprise that when we walked in at about 7.30 on a Saturday night there were only 10 people eating. The bar staff... More

Another pub/restaurant that we visit every time we come down to Woolacombe. Friendly staff, lovely food and a playground for the kids. We've never had problems eating at the mill so will keep returning till we do. Thanks guys, keep up the good work

Been here a few times. Food pretty good excellent service. Not very keen on carvery. Took some friends and family there for the carvery and food was luke warm and cooled very quickly. Beef was very tough.

Visited here on a Thursday evening whilst on holiday for a week, was surprisingly quite a few families & couples in that night. Bar staff were slightly distracted by the womens football on the TV, but didn't bother us. Lovely atmosphere. Food was quick, reasonably priced and very tasty! We had steak and ale pie and a creamy broccoli/potato dish... More

Lovely food, my partner and I only ate there once but my inlaws went on carvery night aswell, they were very impressed with the standard of food. The staff were lovely and friendly. We sat in the top room as you go in from the car park, there were other families there aswell.

What a disappointment, staff behind the bar too busy watching "you've been framed" to pay any attention to the customers, stands there with his mouth open and grunts "eh?" When he didn't catch your order as the cats on the tv were distracting him. Loud music blasting out the kitchen whilst the cooks get a groove on, get served our... More
