I recently visited here with a Friday on a Friday night in October. We were looking for good food and somewhere to have a catch up, and we found the right place! We had the choice of sitting in the bar or the restaurant, we opted for the restaurant as it seemed quieter for us to talk. After reviewing the... More

Often go to the Mill. My partner and I love this cosy traditional pub. Staff are friendly and attentive. Only dined once recently and thoroughly enjoyed delicious burger with chips and salad - gorgeous! There's a good variety of cask ales at reasonable price. Cant go passed a blue moon with a slice of orange - lovely! Well done -... More

Just been for a meal at The Mill and it was lovely. The food was really high quality for a pub and the portion sizes are really generous. The staff were nice and the toilets were clean.

We visited as a group of 9 to celebrate one of our families 40th birthday and recent engagement. As requested we had preordered our food due to us being a larger party. Upon arrival staff were attentive, friendly and very accommodating. Food arrived quickly and what looked to be a promising start went downhill quickly. The quality and taste of... More

Was expecting average pub food, was shocked at the prices in comparison to the decor which is outdated and dusty. Chose the chefs special Seabass and it was beautiful cooked to perfection. The children's meals were of a good size aswell would defiantly go back

Had Sunday lunch for four adults. Large meal came with two large Yorkshire puds but only brought one. Had to ask for the other. Two pork dinners were missing the roast potatoes. Once again had to catch a busy member of staff to ask for them. Waited at the bar for over five minutes to pay for meal even though... More
