Great food, great service, great beer, superb selection of other alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, the staff are all friendly and nothing is too much!! If you are in the area and hungry for delicious food made with locally sourced ingredients then go to The Milbank, you won't regret it!

We visited the Milbank Arms during a one night stay nearby. We chose it due to the positive reviews on here and were not disappointed! The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the atmosphere was relaxed and the food was delicious! We genuinely thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and my husband was a huge fan of the Blacksheep on tap.... More
