The building and location screams fine dining but in reality Milsoms is a bistro. The prices are high for bistro food but not for a setting of this quality. I dislike not being able to book a table and having to jot down my order on a note pad and take it to the bar, in the style of a pub. When I say one is not able to book a table it does depend on who 'one' is. Seven of us were eating and we arrived at 6pm in order to ensure we got a table. The restaurant was pretty empty but we were squeezed onto a table for five or six even though a larger table for 7 was nearby. Half an hour after we arrived staffed place a jug of water on the larger table and then the manager of a football club and his guests arrived. Clearly it is possible to reserve a table if you have the right name! The food was generally good although neither the fish nor chips were good enough. However I did love the salted caramel ice cream. I think it says something about a restaurant when the ice cream was the most memorable dish.
