Visited here for lunch which was unplanned and no table booked. Although the place was busy the staff got us in and made us feel really welcome. Food took a little wile to come out but when it did it was delicious.

Just been for the best Sunday lunch. Portions are great and very filling 2 course for £ 11.95. You can't grumble with that. Staff very helpful and friendly. Book in advance as it can get very busy.

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

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
