“very expensive for what you get”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

there were a few of us that ate here recently and although the food was ok the bill was very steep at £45 each all I had was a starter a burger and a few glasses of wine.

“Lovely setting”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

This old mill is in a lovely setting, the menu usually changes with the seasons.
Though you are not rushed it is more fast food done mainly on a griddle.
Plenty of steaks & burgers & of course the inevitable chips! They do fish & vegetarian meals there is also a bar area where you can have snacks or a meal.
In the Summer you can sit out along the river bank, the food is cooked well but the prices are
expensive considering these are basically pub meals.
It does get very busy at Weekends & Bank holidays, so it is wise to book.

“Avoid at peak times”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

This Beefeater is in a really nice setting and the conservatory parts of the restaurant are lovely. Staff are generally friendly but over stretched and the food is usually ok but avoid at peak times or you will be disappointed because service goes to pot and the quality of food dips markedly. Last time we went they got one of the orders wrong and were totally unapologetic and by the time they returned with the right order the rest of us had finished..totally spoiled the experience. Don't accept a table by the entrance unless you like being watched while you eat...oh and hearing the phone ringing every five minutes!!

“Excellent service and value for money”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Set beside the river Stort, this lovely old converted mill is in a beautiful setting. Large carpark. Food very good, service excellent, and terrific value for money. Very busy with young families early during the weekend and holidays (outside play area). More adults only later on in evening. Very romantic in the evening, and good for a business lunch during the day.

“Food and Service”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Lovely restaurant, polite staff and good quality . The only downside seems that the price rises whilst the portions go down.
