I ate here with friends during the summer and enjoyed the pulled pork burger and sweet potato fries. The portions were large and filling. The restaurant was very busy, however we didn't have long to wait for our meals. Enjoyed my food.

Food is great, presentation impressive, menu is hearty but health conscious. Beer selection is good, the Brewers should be commended for flavor and quality. The atmosphere is rustic and quaint. Even with two very very large parties our waitstaff was prompt and friendly. Already planning...More

Food and atmospher were great, but the service was slow; food took about an hour to get once ordered. Picnic benches are narrow and hard as well for having to sit for such a long time.

Stopped for lunch on a recommendation of a local. The food is better than the usual pub food with lots of beers. Service was fine and apparently the place to go as it was busy for a Tuesday.

Good drinks, server trying hard, apps finally came, then entrees right on top of them a few minutes later! Wouldn't have minded if the food had been better, but our party agreed (2 had been before, 2 first timers), just so-so. We'll try another place...More

The Run of the Mill is an English Style Brew Pub. We offer 7 beers at a time and rotate those between the 25 different varieties that we offer. Our menu includes traditional meals such as Fish and Chips, Pot Roast and Bangers and Mashed Potatoes. We offer daily specials and non-traditional fare, including many steak, fish and even vegetarian options. The Run of the Mill is family and local oriented and we strive to use local farmers, bakers and fishermen. In addition to great food, great beer and a full bar, we have live music Thursdays, Saturdays and Sunday afternoons at 4pm, as well as an open mic night on Tuesdays. Music starts at 8pm and goes till 11pm. We offer a large deck over looking the beautiful Saco River, a separate outside menu including incredible Fish Tacos and some great Grilled Pizzas.
