Dine by candlelight as the waterwheel turns The Wheelroom Restaurant is small but beautifully appointed with ample space for 40 people. A light and airy room by day, the Wheelroom with its flickering candles is transformed into a romantic evening setting with soft music by night and the constant turn of the waterwheel behind the glass partition enhances your experience whenever you dine. Tables can be arranged to suit your needs, so whether eating alone, as a couple or with a party of family or friends the Wheelroom can accommodate you. Your welcome at the bar is second to none, choose your dishes from the a la carte menu or specials board, then wander down to the Wheelroom where our fully trained, attentive but unobtrusive waitresses will look after you from starters to coffee and liqueurs

Things didn't get off to a good start when we arrived. We didn't know exactly where the restaurant was, so we walked into the bar, and the one bar lady was busy with a few people. We saw and followed the sign to the restaurant, where there were two occupied tables, but no sign of any staff.After a couple of... More

Ten years after getting married here, we decided to return to reminisce, this time with two kids in tow! My how those years have flown by. We treated ourselves to afternoon tea. Sitting in the restaurant, with views of the garden & the old water wheel turning slowly. What a selection of savoury treats, salmon, coronation chicken. What a selection... More

Visited the Mill for Sunday lunch, our party all had roasts of ether lamb, beef or pork all very well cooked. Deserts were well presented and tasty, staff friendly and the service was good. Excellent venue and worth having a walk around the grounds

A nice varied menu, spoilt for choice and liberal portions. There was a large choice of desserts but we didn`t have room!

My husband took me here for my birthday and we had a lovely evening. The staff were pleasant and attentive and the food was really good. Would definately recommend for a romantic couples night out but also great for big events especially as they have a gorgeous newly built orangery

Lovely ambience and lovely food. I am a regular diner here as they offer fantastic value for Two course meal at lunchtime from Monday to Friday for £12.95. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Give it a try.
