For the very high prices, meals and drinks were not in good quality and tasty. The ambience is good if you there early during the day.

This is an absolutely gorgeous inn. We recently went here for my cousin's wedding and were in awe of the place. The Fallsview Room is stunning, but the entire inn is beautiful.

We have enjoyed dining at The Ancaster Old Mill since it's opening many years ago. We are lucky to live locally and have access to the finest in dining. The restaurant has undergone another overall refurnishing and updating. (long before it would have needed it!).
The location, the falls and stream beside the restaurant, the overall ambience in a natural setting. The best it can be.
The food, the finest. On my last trip I decided to have a steak, the menu being so interesting a steak never crossed my mind. It was the night for steak. I ordered the Filet. THE best steak I have ever enjoyed. Tasty, cooked to perfection and actually did cut with a butter knife. Tried it. I always think of a steak house when I want a steak - now I will only go to the Mill.
The staff, amazing. Everyone we passed greeted us, asked us if we had enjoyed our evening, thanked us for coming, amazing. The waiter and the wait staff made the evening even more enjoyable.
To have such a perfect experience, perfect, is very rare. The management has to be congratulated on the whole package but especially the training the staff have been given. So glad I don't have to drive out of town to enjoy this type of restaurant.

This is hands down one of the best brunches we have enjoyed, and we have enjoyed many, from the (now closed) Zachary's brunch to brunch at the King Eddie. This is, without a doubt, one of the finest. The food quality was excellent, the service was first class, and the Mill itself is absolutely charming. The complimentary Mimosas and Kir Royales were just the cherry on top of a wonderful experience.
It was a 2 hour drive for us and we would make the trip again with no hesitation.
Well done!!!
