We visit here regularly both weekdays and weekends. Food is lovely (apart from the veggie burger) everything else is really tasty and good sized portions. Especially love their carvery, good amount of meat and loads of vegetables to choose from. Ideal for families with young children as there's a... read more

What a lovely pub under excellent new management. Kids and dogs are welcome and there's an amazing play area which kept the children (of a variety of ages) entertained for hours. The food arrived quickly and was yummy (especially the chips!) and my son loved his vegetarian burger. There was a great relaxed atmosphere and all the staff were helpful... More

Great play area for kids, excellent location, massively overpriced though and food well below average, everything microwaved just about so. Had a pack of bacon fries, usually about 60 to 70p in the local pub, £1.15 here, just sums up the rip off nature of this place. If they actually hired a chef, and stopped buying in the microwaved ready... More

Looks lovely outside, standard inside, nice staff, poor food. The food is way overpriced for the quality of it. I would expect this to be a two for £10 kind of place seeing as all four dishes we had were microwaved (even my chicken) and the only fresh thing was a side salad! To be fair to the 2 for... More

your typical rubbish chain style pub, self service, no atmosphere, food poorly cooked and more like a fast food site

Visited the Old Mill for a carvery at Sunday lunchtime and were blown away at the quantity and quality of the food available - will definitely return!

nicely presented, olde world style from the outside, with good selection of beers and food, nice play area for the children, with climbing frames and such, pleasant outside drinking/eating area, and with live music on certain nights.

We stayed in devon over the Easter break and we had a new member of the family our king charles spaniel aged 6 months old. We had no idea if the mill could accommodate us with our dog included and I called ahead. I was totally reassured and was advised outside apart from child's play area and down stairs accommodated...

This beautiful old building looks very inviting on the outside, with tables and chairs and a large play area for the children. This Pub is situated on the road side between to holiday villages, where no doubt that's where most of the visitors will be from. There is a car park to the rear of the building with a walkway...
