As we do not live in the area we read reviews on trip advisor about the pub. Well, I wish we had a pub in our area that cooks and presents food to the same standard as the Mill Race. The current owners have only been there for four and a half months. The service was excellent and the food... More

Just home from a stunning lunch at the Mill Race. We were very impressed! The food was beautifully presented, it was almost a shame to spoil it! Everything was cooked perfectly - the Cornish fish were fresh and delicious, as were the accompanying samphire and fondant potatoes. As for dessert ... the espresso brûlée was to die for! The two...

My wife and I came to this restaurant for a change of scenery to find that it had changed hands and is being run by a delightful couple from South Africa. The menu was varied, well priced had a good extras menu which was explained by the male owner. The food was absolutely delightful. Beautifully cooked and very well presented.... More

My husband and I ate at the restaurant this evening and had the most delicious food. I had the scallops which were cooked to perfection with a cauliflower puree and chorizo which gave it a wonderful saltiness. My husband had the goats cheese panna cotta which was unusual but very tasty. We had the fish mixed grill which was great.... More

I used to eat at the Mill Race quite often and would take visiting friends for dinner. Unfortunately over the last year or so the Mill Race lost its way. I am pleased to say, thanks to Doug and Claire, it is now top of my list and have had several really amazing meals lately. The friends I took last... More

Our first visit in several months and The Mill Race has upped its game as a restaurant impressively. Charming and knowledgeable service, made us feel both honoured guests and at home. There is a map of 'food miles' which includes most of our favourites, too: Tyrells, Magetts Farm poultry, Vin Sullivan - top notch suppliers. A truly well-picked wine list,... 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.
