“Good for groups”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Went here with husband last night. Choice of food on menu was not vast but everything sounded good, and everything we saw coming out of the kitchen looked good too. The food we chose was actually very well presented and delicious. Pizza was excellent. Only thing we didn't like much was the service. We felt a bit rushed and the place was quite noisy. So rather than a quiet dinner for two I think the place would be better for a group of people out to party.

“An unexpected pleasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Ripponden was just a place to stop on the map, and when we got there most places were closed - except the café which we entered and rapidly exited nearly overcome by the odour of chips.

We waited for The Milestone to open, thinking we'd get a sandwich and a drink, but the helpful waitress suggested we might like to share a single "early-bird" menu. At £7 for a crispy duck and plum sauce pizza we thought it would be a bargain, and despite the two diet Pepsis bumping the price up by a fiver we still got good value, and admired the investment that has gone into creating a place with quite a sense of style.in a setting where we didn't expect it, and where the street scene looked decidedly unhopeful.

“Change the name to Ten Stone.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

....as that is how much extra weight you leave with! Absolutely AMAZING food! Having known the place existed for years I've never checked out the menu. After my other half mentioned it I had a nosey and was instantly sold. The duck sharer stood out the most as I could actually live off it for the rest of my life! I was not disappointed maybe a bit greedy for having it all to myself lol but it was so worth it. Will definitely be returning and recommending to anyone that will listen. Keep it up =)
