“Excellent food - fresh, good quality and lots of choice - very friendly service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

Our entire family love this local friendly and warm village pub. They have a huge range of dishes with an a la carte menu and daily specials (about 12 varying starters and mains!) At lunchtime they also have a panini and baguette menu. The selection of beers and ales is extensive with a weekly 'ale of the week' from a local and less known brewery. The staff are lovely and accommodating and will cater to your every need, adapting dishes as requested. There is a formal seating area and bar area where you can eat. Every Thursday night the pub hosts a fantastic pub quiz, which attracts groups of all ages and is lots of fun. Family favourites include the classic starters of baked Brie, duck spring rolls, prawn cocktail, soup of the day and mushrooms in a cream sauce as well as salads, fish cakes and smoked salmon among others. Favourite mains are definitely the chicken curry and seabass fillets, but the belly pork if it is on the board and lamb fillet are popular with the boys, the chicken, bacon and Brie salad and baked salmon on spinach popular with the girls and fish n'chips, scampi and gammon for anybody with a hangover or tired and hungry after a long day shooting! If you are in the area and hungry then go to the Milbank Arms - you won't be disappointed!

“All-round great time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012 via mobile

I've had 2 meals here over the past 5 years, once with work and another with friends after another pub cancelled our booking.

Nice and clean, airy and well light, this is a nice pub with a large car park that you can come and relax with friends for a drink, or head to the dining room just off from the bar. Food is plentiful and lots of choice, reasonably priced. Staff are constantly walking through so you can catch their attention and are polite and talkative - you get the feeling they enjoy working there.

We've since recommended the place to friends and always get good reports back, including from a meal on Valentines Day.

Keep up the good work, we'll certainly be back when we can! :)
