“Sometimes we love it, sometimes not”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Beautiful building and grounds, good waiting staff and generally excellent food. When the majority guest are adults then all is well, however many of the clients tend to be of the 'yummy mummy' variety that allow their precocious children to run around screaming doing whatever they like. If we ever go at such a time, we now just leave and go elsewhere. I think Milsoms would do better to have family area and let people who want to enjoy a quiet meal with out children running past their table ontinuously, do so.

“Our second meal at this restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

And it was just as good. We had a great time and the food delicious. I would recommend the Tonka bean panacotta (if that's how it's spelled!). Service very friendly and the grounds beautiful. If only it wasn't so cold at the moment.

“Well worth a visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

The wait staff could not have been more helpful and attentive. The main course's were well presented and cooked, the pulled pork that comes with the burger was outstanding. The only fault I could give the meal was the coconut dessert, which was tasteless and look like it was chucked onto the plate, with no care or attention put into it. Apart from the dessert the meal was faultless.
