My family and I were recently treated to a fantastic evening of culinary delights, great service and quality drinks at the Mill Race. The decor in the pub is tasteful and welcoming and the food is top notch. The evening was very enjoyable and all our tastes were catered for. This is a definite must visit pub, and we will... More

Saturday lunchtime - the first day of the school summer holidays... The entire LP tribe (4 adults and a border collie) descended as a ravenous horde upon this gem of a pub, having spent 90 minutes or so trying to escape the yuppie paradises all around. Service was efficient, with a good choice of real ales and craft beer, a... More

This used to be a great food and drink pub, however much seems to have changed. For what certainly wasn't a busy tuesday night, food, drinks and service were disappointing. 2 out of the 3 ales wasnt on and the craft ale also wasnt on, there was little choice in terms of craft, cask or lagers to say the least....

6 of us booked for Sunday lunch. We have been to the Mill Race many times, as it's mid way between two families, each an hours drive to the restaurant. On each previous occasion, we have enjoyed the setting, decor and great food & drink. In the past, the service has been impeccable. On this occasion, unfortunately the whole experience... More

Dear JKBDR, Thank you for your visit and feedback. The Sunday you refer to was our ( General Managers) first Sunday off in two months. We trust our acting Duty Manager implicitly and believe that there normally is no discernible difference in service between shift teams and by all accounts the general level of organisation on our weekly day off...

Having read many good reviews on these pages we were looking forward to our visit, On arrival, they had no record of our booking. The guy who took it hadn't recorded it which led to hasty reorganisation of tables. We ordered a bottle of red wine. The waitress came back to the table saying the wine was rather cold and... More

Used to be a loyal Mill Race customer but so disappointed tonight with service and food I felt I had to share this experience. Totally spoilt our son's birthday celebrations. We had to go and order food and drink at the bar as nobody came to the table. We watched at least 2 other table's who had ordered after us... More

Called in for lunch the waiter was friendly my starter was goats cheese with beetroot my husband had rabbit both were delightfully. The mains were duck and lamb bothe were excellent. The hazelnut ice cream was fab. A lovely place to eat we have been before and will definitely be returning on our next trip to the area

We had a 3 course lunch which was first rate in all aspects. A wide range of choice at reasonable prices, with the quality of the materials and cooking being nearly as good as Michelin Star establishments which we have visited in the previous year. Service was very good although a little slow as staff were away sick from the... More

A relaxed, informal village pub set in the Wye Valley just 3 miles from Ross-on-Wye and 6 miles from Monmouth. Owned and managed by people who are passionate about the freshest of produce and food, wine and fine ales - nearly all of our produce is sourced from within 30 miles of Walford, some even comes from our very own farm! Being positioned on the borders of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire we are surrounded by wonderful producers. Our regularly changing menus ensure we make the most of local produce with our focus on simple food cooked well.
