Peaceful and unique somewhere we visit whenever we are in Cornwall. Miller's lunch, coffee and cake always a winner in our book.

Down a steep narrow road (but that's Cornwall) to this old mill. Slightly quirky café and gift shop but lovely food, especially the soup and cakes. Visited on a Wednesday lunchtime in September when it was fairly quiet. Good service from friendly staff.

Lovely place, great for coffee and walk. The cafe is a little overpriced but the food is good. The mill is small but nice to look around.

After seeing so many art shops and trendy cafes, Melinsey Mill is a real change. Eating by the pond, a working mill, and a gift shop that's quirky - it will appeal to those who like the weird and the wonderful.

Little mill tucked away in the trees, eclectic gifts and shop to look around. Lovely soup, sandwiches, ploughman's etc for lunch and lots of cakes and cream teas on offer. Such a find and will definitely return!

Kids loved the walk through the wood, spotting teacups, chairs, lampshades etc hanging in the trees. Lovely to see the mill still turning. Good tea and cake too

We love this place, it's a real little gem to have a cream tea. The little birds are really friendly and come really close in the hopes of some of your crumbs 😁

Such a peaceful spot, hidden away in a valley. Limited but very nice menu, with great cakes. Kids love wandering around the mill and the walk around the pond, watching all the wildlife. Shame the waterwheel seems to be broken - it did work when...More
