I have lived in Old Basing for 20 years and have seen The Millstone change hands quite a few times, sometimes it's good and other times not so good.
Sadly at the moment it's not so good. The pub itself is a lovely building in a perfect location by the river with plenty of outdoor tables. The food is ok, tries a bit too hard to be a gastro pub and quite expensive for what it is but pleasant enough. The thing that lets it down though is the terrible service. The staff on the last 3 occasions we have been in have been awful, no smiles, messing up the orders, not at all welcoming.
This is a lovely village pub and attracts lots of visitors and could be so good but it's just missing the key things that make people want to return. Such a shame.
