This was a large family occasion for a birthday celebration. We were warned that service would be slow and it certainly was. Most of the party were satisfied with the food but the mains took the best part of an hour to appear. We did raise the delat at the time but it not seem to help. The restaurant would... More

We had a really nice lunch here today. There is plenty of choice on the menu and I highly recommend the seared Tuna Nicoise, which is delicious. The staff are friendly and helpful. I probably wouldn't order coffee here again, but everything else was great and we were very happy.

Rotten day, lashing it down, 2 hours to get to the venue due to an accident, better be good! It didn't disappoint us. We all went for the specials of the day which was various hamburgers in different formats, veggie, lamb and beef etc all served with "chunky" chips and garnish all nicely presented. The only downside? too hot inside... More

If you sit next to the water mill round the back late afternoon it's lovely! There is no one sitting there so it's very peaceful and quiet. Try the hot dog because it's not a processed hot dog it's a local flavoursome big sausage in lovely fresh bread.

Went here on a recommendation and I'm afraid it didn't meet expectations. We were there for lunch with friends. staff didn't seem overly interested and didn't really engage in conversation. They also lacked knowledge about the menu and its origins. One of our lunches arrived and didn't have everything that was stated on the menu. When we asked where the... More

We had a fabulous meal. Kim and her team took amazing care of us. With lots of special requests and food allergies, they made sure all our food came out beautifully. We were a table of 13 and everyone was thrilled with their meals and the quality of food and service was top notch.

I had an enjoyable experience at The Old Mill a week ago. Daniel and Nathan on the bar were very helpful in making my decisions for drinks (some good cocktails and insights into meals were great), my waitress Jess couldn't have been better. Would really recommend The Old Mill to anyone looking for a good, friendly atmosphere and good food... More

We visited on a Friday lunchtime and sat inside which is very pleasant. The pub wasn't busy but twice we asked to order drinks which when they came were wrong. Although they were changed quickly, later, when we re-ordered our drinks they were wrong too! However, we had nowhere to go in a hurry so we settled down to read... More

Had an excellent Saturday lunch at the Old Mill. Had been recommended but has always been busy when we have tried for a table before. We had the mackerel and beetroot starter and I had a fillet steak with hoseradish creme fraiche and beetrootwhich was absolutely to die for, the other half had a rib-eye which he said was excellent....

Eaten here lots of times - food is always great and service better. Is a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.
