“Friendly staff, good food”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Staff here are always friendly and the food is always good. A few large party's in today but we were not kept waiting for an unacceptable amount of time because of this. Cannot fault them.

“Awfull... Just awfull”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

Garden is over grown in the middle of summer... How is this even acceptable? The entire establishment outside is in need of some serious love! On to the service.... Never. NEVER in my life have I been asked if I need anything else " because the bar is along way and I don't want to have to walk back " food is way way over priced unless you stick to set menus and if they have a private function in forget it! Doubt ill ever return on the poor service over priced food and run down state of what was once a beautiful friendly pub.

“what a difference a day makes”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

We were staying at the canwick premier inn next door and dined here twice. First night we found the lady behind the bar unfriendly and the man who showed us to our table also rude. The food was good though. The next night was a totally different experience as we were served by michael behind the bar and alan at the table and both chaps where extremely friendly. Food again was fine.

“Very average food, excellent service”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

I haven't eaten at Mill Lodge in some time, and we decided to make a visit one evening. The restaurant was very busy but we found a table and our waiter Jez warmly welcomed us. Jez took our order and was helpful in making menu suggestions, and was able to offer allergy advice. There is a wide range of menu options and clear allergy guidance.

We ordered nachos for starters and were rather disappointed. The nachos were fine but there wasn't enough cheese and the salsa was appalling being more like a red sauce with no hint of a chunky texture or any clear ingredients such as tomatoes or onions.

The chicken and sauce dish as a main course was very average and the mushroom risotto was the worst I have ever had in a restaurant. I am utterly convinced that the rice used in this dish was long grain and not risotto rice as the textures and taste was completely wrong, and the sauce wasn't stirred throughout the dish which was strange for a risotto. It was so bad I didn't finish the dish.

It wa a shame that the food was a disappontment as Jez was lovely and tried so hard. It will be a good while before we go back.
