“Tasty food and good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

We visited the Milton Arms on a Saturday night and it was not very busy so, unlike some other reviewers, we found the service to be pretty good. The staff were friendly and helpful although our main courses did take a long time to arrive. Apart from some slightly burnt garlic bread the quality of the food was good and the value for money excellent, there are not many pubs that have desserts for under £2.

I think the dining experience could be improved if there was more segregation of the serious drinkers from the diners, as the former were getting quite noisy during our visit but this was not really a problem. I would be happy to return to the Milton Arms for another meal.

“Bad experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We just arrived from eating there and let me tell you, we are not coming back.
When we were ordering the food we were advised that there was a waiting list of 45 minutes, and we agreed to it. We ordered a side of garlic bread to deal with the wait as we where with a toddler.
After one hour the food was not yet in the table!! So we complained and they told us it would be with us in 5 minutes, that where more like 15 more.
And when the food arrived, three of the plates where fine but mine (sizzler skewer with vegetables) had absolutely cold chips and burned as coal vegetables. We complained again and they did offer to change the vegetables and chips but after all that waiting time the complain was just to make my point, no way I was waiting any more for food there!!
To be fair, it might be different if you don't go there during rush hours, but if you cannot deal with that amount of people, hire more help in the kitchen or reduce the number of tables, do not reduce the quality of service!!

“Nice restraunt . . . . . NOT!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Nice place for sitting around, there's also Free Wi-Fi, in the winter you can warm up there and there are also very comfortable seats!!
The food looks great, we don't know how it tastes - we don't get anything. Waitress semes to be nice but she didn't talked to us. She passes about 100 times and never gave us a glimpse!
All in all -> Great

“waste of an hour”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Arrived about 3.30 on a busy sunday afternoon.Friends of ours had arrived earlier and purchased drinks we stood at the bar for twenty five minutes waiting to be served.We were not acknowledged at all just ignored, while several men who had obviousley had had plenty to drink already were getting served immediately around the public bar.Left the bar without drinks and sat thirsty with our friends whilst they finished theirs.Decided to travel ten miutes down the road to the Golden Hind where we were met by friendly staff and all had a very enjoyable meal.There were fourteen of us in total and we left a good tip so milton arms your loss.

“Avoid!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Staying locally so needed somewhere to feed family of four. Cheap and cheerful would have been good - this was neither. Bucket of dirty cutlery lobbed on table-eventually replaced. Advertised "2 meals for £8.49" didn't say portions small. Ate and left quickly, topped up teenagers at the chippy.
