“Huge portions of great food...eventually!”
Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

We visited the Millstone for a birthday meal and it was definitely food fit for a celebration! We ordered starters and main courses along with a couple of side dishes which, it turns out, was a bit over ambitious!

The portions at the Millstone are so huge that we could have easily skipped the starters altogether. That would have been a shame though as all the food was really delicious.

If there is a downside at all it's that the food did take a while to come out. But the polite staff and good atmosphere more than made up for it.

The waitress summed it up nicely - the food's that nice and the portions are that big that people come in with plans to go out partying afterwards but by the time they finish the food they just want to to home and sleep! I'd say that's dead on - thank you Millstone.

“Massive portions makes up for inconsistent food”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

I would probably go again as this place is good value. The portions are hefty and there is a complimentary side with every main course. The food is a bit heavy handed and lacks finesse, some of the things I ordered were good, other elements were badly executed and under seasoned. Service was good. Food and wine were reasonably priced. Mixed bag but not an unpleasant dining experience.

“Sunday lunch”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Went here and didn't book. Had to eat at table in bar waiting area. Wasn't a problem it was still very comfortable and the food was worth it. Lovely staff very pleasant and helpful. Would advise booking though.

“Great Bar Food”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Visited on a Saturday lunch time with my wife,son and 4 year old grandson. Made very welcome by Barman. Friendly atmosphere, quick service and good tasty food. Looked at the menu for the main restaurant which did not open until evening time. Looked very inviting, I will visit some evening.
