Our first visit as we had two friends staying with us for the weekend. Beautiful surroundings and Elliot was the perfect host. Food was very good, excellent homemade puddings. Good selection of vegetables but would have preferred them a little more el dente. Very enjoyable Sunday afternoon. Will definitely be revisiting.

We chose Help Out Mill for a celebration Sunday lunch. We haven't been back for quite a while - kept meaning to but didn't get round to it. It's always been good and we were pleased to find it just as good as ever. A great friendly reception from Elliott and excellent service. Our three course Sunday lunch was lovely... More

We booked a Sunday lunch for my sons 18th Birthday and took up a sizeable proportion of the restaurant. However, the owners made it feel very special for our son, sitting him at the head of a large table. Every request we made was surpassed with no quibbles at all. The food was excellent and well presented, promptly and plenty... More

A warm welcome from Elliott and Peter as usual. This is the first time we have tried their Sunday lunch and it didn't disappoint. A lovely traditional 3 course menu finishing with the amazing sweet trolley and coffee. If you like traditional English food, you couldn't do better than The Help Out Mill. Ps the Alpacas were nice to see... More

What a fabulous night. They really should do it more often. The food was ok, and in keeping with the Fawlty Towers theme - don't go there expecting a banquet - duck will always be off! It's pricey at £80, but well worth it, as you are getting west end actors at Leicestershire prices. I can't recommend it more highly... More

It would be difficult to find a nicer venue to visit for Sunday lunch. Nothing was too much trouble for the family who own this lovely restaurant. After a very warm welcome we were placed close to a roaring log fire and served with three delicious courses. The Roast Beef and Lamb were very tender and the accompanying vegetables hot... More

We went to a Faulty Towers night here, the entertainment was brilliant but the team there really made it. The food was great and the service was fantastic. They had a good wine list which surprised me for a small venue. I know they serve lunch at weekends as well as private functions and we would certainly return

We visited help out mill for the fawlty towers experience, the name surely giving away an idea of the night?? Maybe not for some. We have visited here on numerous occasions and the food has been just great. Help out mill is different it offers a unique, personal service, relaxed and most enjoyable. Yes, I agree £80 is a high...
