Staff were fab, food great and amazing value for money. Very helpful and flexible organising the food with special diets. Excellent all round. Also good for a spot of lunch, reasonable prices for fresh cooked food.

“Excellent yet again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2014 NEW

Lovely greeting from Marc, Sam and crew as usual as we go to the Millstream a couple of times a month.
Decided last minute to try a toastie each as we wanted a light snack. The meal was very generous and included salad and crisps. Marc does present good food very well and his fish dishes are delicious and the lamb burgers excellent.
I have reviewed some time ago but are glad to see that their standards remain high.

Merry Christmas.

“Very Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2014

My wife and I stopped here for a quick snack while visiting the excellent craft shop in Walford Mill. Very friendly welcoming reception. We ordered toasted sandwiches and coffee. The sandwiches were delicious, well presented and the portion was ample. The coffee in big cups was very good too. A very enjoyable stop. Highly recommended

“80th Birthday Celebration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2014

A family gathering of 25 people from 2 weeks old to 80 with a lovely three course meal with
x3 options on each course. All courses had a new contemporary presentation with excellent attention to taste and textures. Marc and staff deserve high praise. Surely worth a Michelin star?? Truly one of the wonders of Wimborne. Be tempted and enjoy the surroundings too.

“A great venue for private hire”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2014

After planning my 40th birthday for months at a different venue, I was let down at the last minute by them. I was passed the details of The Millstream Cafe via a friend. I had a meeting with Marc the owner and chef and within 6 days notice he'd put together a party package for me. We were so glad that we found them. On a September evening with a 'fire pit' outside, picnic tables, candles with marshmallow toasting and a DJ and dancing inside it catered for all different members of the family and friends. He organised some amazing food served out on the terrace by the river and he and his staff were so helpful and friendly. The beautiful setting by the river with your own private courtyard was perfect setting for a party. After the craft centre closes it's doors the Cafe, set withing the courtyard is available for private hire, we had it until 11pm. We can't thank them enough for making it a great night x
