The atmosphere is great in this pub and I like the fact that dogs are welcome. We were a bit peckish so chose the chilli beef nachos to accompany our drinks and not only was it well presented, but the combination of tastes and textures were delicious aswell! We'll be back!

Disappointing choice of food. Nothing much on the menu that I fancied, so finished up with fish and chips. The portion of fish was small and the plate overloaded with chunky chips. Staff were friendly and helpful. The sticky toffee pud. was nice.

Love the pub on a day like the day I visited (15th August). It was so nice to be able to sit outside in the Garden with a cold drink. But was gutted they stopped serving food at 14:30 as all we wanted was a bowl of chips to share between us.

Super setting and lovely to see young families taking advantage of the grassed area next to the river, staff were kind and very helpful and the choice and quality of the food was excellent, decent choice for my daughter who is a vegetarian.

We went here due to it's gluten free menu and me being able to have fish and chips. I hadn't been to Bartons Mill/The Millstone for at least 5 years. There was a big queue at the bar as only one person serving, but eventually someone else arrived to help, so the queue reduced fairly quickly. The pub and surroundings... More

Really nice pub/restuarant next to the river. Nice in the summer time. Beer is really expensive compared to other pubs in the area.

Came here for a quick lunch last weekend, I had a mango and chicken salad which was very tasty, boyfriend had loaded nachos, which were also good. There was a great selection of beers and ciders. The real winner here is the setting. The river and surrounding woodland is lovely to sit by, lots of outdoor seating to fully enjoy... More
