We have eaten several times here both Sunday carvery ( a large choice of meats and vegetables) and during the week À la carte and always found the food to be of the highest quality. The staff are friendly and good with the children; there is also a comfortable sitting area with leather sofas and very pleasant views out over the waterfall, pool and ornamental bridge.

we were a party of 8 on sunday 21/01/13. the carvery sunday lunch is lovely, there are three roasts and a selection of vegetables and potatoes, no vegatarien option and no child alternative though. the waitresses were slow to clear the table but were friendly and polite. our sweet orders were taken and my 4 year old asked for ice cream, she was told she could only have vanilla but whist waiting a child at a different table was served several different flavours, trivial to an adult but not a 4 year old. my 6 year old son asked for custard and some cream with it. when it arrived the waitress told him he couldnot have cream because it was for the adults!! the sweets were not free they were paid for, we spent just over £150.00 on sunday lunch and for my son to be told he couldnt have 20 or 30 pence worth of cream was very dissapointing. i would recommend the watermill to adults as the food is lovely but we were left uspet and cross because the children were upset when there was no need. sundays are a good day for family meals out and if children are not going to be made welcome then maybe parents should be told at the time of booking.

Running a bit late for Sunday lunch, most places seem to finish at 2pm, had a thought, The Watermill in Carlon Minniot is open until 3!
It's a carvery, so you get shown to a table and after getting your drinks it's off the serve yourself.
The chef has a choice of Beef, Pork and Turkey, you get a reasonable portion, then you pass along the Bain Marie's for your veg.
Funny selection of veg, among your usual carrots, cabbage, cauliflower cheese, boilies and roasties..... there's Mushy Peas and Creamed Butternut! Different or what? Then there's the most enormous Yorkshire Puddings and meaty chunky gravy....... all very nice.
The meal most most enjoyable, the veg not not as soft as it can be at a carvery, the meat good and I even braved the mushy peas...... I like them actually but they're normally an accompaniment to a pie or fish and chips :)
All washed down with a very decent pint of Theakstones Bitter.

They have a selection of sweets, crumble etc. but we were in a rush(as ever).

Altogether a welcome lunch and enjoyed.
