“A Let Down”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

We've had a couple of reasonable carveries here but the last visit was not good.
We recommended it to friends who were staying with us and we couldn't have been more wrong. The portions of meat that were handed out were small at best. When one of our group asked for more the reaction was like something out of Oliver Twist. The parsnips were undercooked and still had the skin on them and most of the rest of the vegetables were overcooked.
While I was waiting in the queue one of the group returned with his plate saying that his beef was nearly all fat and he was unable to cut through it. A few tuts followed and with some reluctance his beef was replaced. The woman who was cutting the meat then made a rude remark to me about him, not realising he was part of our group.
I made a complaint via email and was contacted for my telephone number so they could investigate and get back to me 'by the end of the week'. That was two weeks ago.
The other member of the party also complained via their 'how did we do' slip. He was also asked for his number so they.....You can see a pattern developing here, can't you.
Unless I hear from them I certainly shall not be returning.
I'd give three stars for previous visits but no stars for the last one.
Use the Barley Mow, it may be more crowded with average food but it's consistently average and the staff are friendly.

“A wonderful place for a meal - whatever the occasion.”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

The Washford Mill is a beautiful old Tavern with a mill stream in the rural outskirts of Redditch. The Restaurant has a superb Carvery or you can chose from the A la cart menu. There are areas of the Restaurant with different atmospheres - open casual, smart dining and romantic. The wine list is good but not huge, the food is wonderful and the service is relaxed but attentive and friendly. There are also Bars with Sports TV and bar food plus you can sit outside by the romantic Mill Stream or on more casual family benches in the grounds with a garden. They have the Diamond Club for over 50's with a discount all day on Monday to Friday, except Bank Holidays, and free WIFI.
