This place is really lovely - in a great position, with a gorgeous interior decor and feel, and good outside space. The service was excellent and our waitress couldn't have been more friendly or helpful......Started with the sharing fish plate, which was very delicious and a good sized portion. However the rump steak was a massive letdown. Firstly I asked... More

Very average meal at the Old Mill tonight. We've given it a wide berth for the last year or so but thought we'd give it another try. Chicken terrine starter was fairly tasteless and served with dry toast, no butter offered and an undressed salad. Rib eye steak was delicious but overcooked (asked for rare) and came with 7 chips...

I've been going here for the last 3 years that I have been living in area. I won't go again. We had a large group of us and we spent a lot of money - around £240 for six of us. The risotto dish I ordered was bland and gross. The £20 lamb had by two of us was not... More

Ate here tonight for my mothers 70th birthday. I do not live in the area so did not know what to expect. The menu choice was poor and the cost of a starter averaged at around £7 which for the quality and quantity was shocking. Three scallops cost £9.50. This is supposedly a family friendly pub but has no children's... More

Poor, slow and rude service. 20 min for a round of drinks. Then waitress comes to retake drinks order! Then, an hour waiting for our meal, when asked about it and waiter says yes, and continues to go clear an empty table. We are still waiting at 21:30 and will not be coming back! Unless we want rude snooty service!

What a turnaround. Poorly kept beer and overpriced food. The "Catch of the Day" was probably the unsuspecting diner who hoped he might be getting fresh fish and not a palid and poorly cooked fish and chips.The "fixed price" offering is so restrictive as to be wholly misleading.Fancy ordering overpriced salmon and having to pay a further £3.50 for potatoes.The...

The Old Mill is a favourite of ours as the food is always of a good standard and the service is generally good. (It can be slow on occasion) Menu is good, especially if you have children as the platters are a good choice to cover everyones tastes and they are more than willing to make small versions of the...

I agree with other reviewers that this is by no means a cheap night out but we were visiting for a special occasion. Deli board was a bit disappointing tbh. Tiny portions. However the main courses were delicious. I had risotto and the starter size was plenty. So tasty and well cooked and seasoned. My husband had a steak and... More

Rather disappointed with very slow service and had to send back our tuna nicoise salad - as initial portions of 2 very small bits of tuna were very salty and overcooked- having waited 40 minutes after starters. The manager was very apologetic but will not be back in a hurry
