Arrived for a family meal (12 people), 2 course Sunday lunch. Main course was very nice but had no option on potato choice, just roast so if you don't like them tough. Veg ok. Dessert awful. The way the menu describes them, they are all mouthwatering but from the cheesecake to the sticky toffee pudding not nice at all. For the price, average. As it was a treat and I wasn't paying didn't like to complain but normally would do.

The food was very good, the service just ok.

The place is very outdated and quite manky.
There are lamp shades on the wall that have many dead flies in the bottom of them, not what you want to look at when you're eating.
The carpets look like they have been there forever.

The view over the lake is excellent but sadly the building doesn't really show if off to its best.

We have eaten here a number of times, always found the food lovely, freshly cooked to order fresh vegetables and homemade desserts. You get a good sized piece of meat or fish but always find they are a little mean with veg and pototoes, end up ordering an extra portion. Service is good, lovely atmosphere good value but wish they would change the menu which has been the same for the last 6-7 years. Overall still very good

Visited the Mill Pool recently for the first time and was very pleasantly surprised to find such a wonderful restaurant.

The food is top class and really good value for money, we had a lunch time starter and main meal for £12.

Was very lucky to get a window seat for two overlooking the Mill Pool (it is usually advised to book in advance if you require a certain table).

The restaurant was almost full but the staff were excellent and made us feel very welcome.

£15 per head for 2 courses. Vegetables lovely, portion sizes good. Is my Mum's favorite restaurant and I can see why. Nice view from upstairs eating area.
