I have met friends for lunch here twice in the last 6 months. It was at the recommendation of one of them and I agree with him that the food is very good and the dining areas are very pleasant.

Lovely steak dinner at the Watermill - it never fails to provide top class food. Wine was also very good and the staff helpful. Table reserved as requested. A great treat.

Restaurant prices, mediocre pub food. The Sunday lunch didn't match up to the pleasant surroundings. Had to ask for gravy, this arrived in a cream jug. Very disappointed but will vote with our feet.

The watermill never fails to deliver great food and friendly service. We have eaten here at different times of the day from breakfast, lunch or evening meal and the food is always fresh and hot.

I stayed at the Milford Hotel on Sunday night and booked a table in The Watermill. I started with Yorkshire Puddings. " huge Yorkshires turned up in delicious onion gravy. They were very light and fluffy. I had roast pork as my main course which was tender and with a large piece of cracking which was very crisp and accompanied... More

I found this place unfriendly and complacent, I had some thing that was pork belly which was perfect square and had a separate top which was supposedly the crackling, when asked if it was processed the waitress said this is all natural, as she can not tell processed meat you could tell this was not going to get any better,...
