Relaxing Old Mill

We visited the Old Mill with two friends for breakfast. We booked on line and were shown to a very nice table in the alcove room. This area is the more casual area near the bar away from the main restaurant where we have also eaten. We like the decor which is slightly eclectic and in keeping with... read more

So very disappointed. We were looking forward to eating in this beautiful looking pub. The waitress was polite but that was as good as it gets. My husband ordered lamb chips but was informed immediately that they had sold out. No problem. He ordered scampi, I ordered monkfish. Both were not available. We then ordered the sea bass but asked... More

What a shame - I have eaten here a few times in the last year and it has been good. I suggested the venue for an early dinner with friends but was left so disappointed and we all agreed we just would not go back. Our table was booked at 5.30pm - we were still asking where our food was... More

I have lived in the area for 25 years and passed this place numerous times but never been. Went for a girly catch up with friends and was pleasantly surprised. The interior itself is beautifully decked out, retaining many of the original features. Lots of separatee little dining areas which makes it more intimate. We shared a veggie board which... More

On an impromptu bike ride, we happened across The Old Mill. We didn't expect to be served as it was Mothers Day and we had already been refused service at a pub along the canal. We walked in and were greeted by a lovely chap, smiling all the way even though the restaurant was packed and as it turned out,... More

Have eaten at this restaurant on several occasions and the food and service has never disappointed. They have 2 private dining areas which are just off the main bar area. These are a lovely idea if you have 12-20 people dining, as you are separated but not completely out of the hub bub of the bar. Booking and service has... More

We had booked for 6 for a 21st birthday lunch. It was excellent: we asked for gluten free options and the main menu had been marked to show our options - plenty. The food that we ordered was all delicious, hot. sufficient and attractively presented. Staff were charming and mostly efficient - there was a minor delay over a hot... More

We have been to The Old Mill previously and loved it so we decided to book a birthday party supper here and we were absolutely delighted. The food was amazing - in fact they must have a new chef as it was even better than we remembered it.....The welcome and service was excellent, far better than your average gastro pub... More
