“Consistent excellence.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Our third visit to the Millstone - a meal for 8 for a family birthday. As before the environment , atmosphere and food were excellent. Friendly and attentive staff. It was very busy and service was a little slow at times but not really a problem.The food was worth waiting for, delicious, locally sourced produce and freshly cooked to order. Good variety with interesting specials. Can highly recommend.

Thank you for your review. As we cook everything fresh it can sometime result in a slight delay at busy times but I’m glad that it didn’t impact on your enjoyment. We change our specials board daily and have recently introduced our monthly “inn season” specials menu so next time you are here there will be lots of new dishes for you and your family to try.

Kind regards,
Anson Bolton - Chef Patron and all the team at The Millstone.

“A great eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Locally sourced produce, freshly cooked to order. No Brakes Brothers here. Seasonal menu with a monthly specials and daily board. Great wine list. Bring your spare produce and swap it for a drink or a meal. 10 out of 10.

Many thanks for your feedback which I’ve passed on to our chefs, Our “Inn Season” Menu reflects the very best of local seasonal produce along with Barter Board produce which is supplied by our locals.
As you’re probably aware as well as our wine list we have a great selection of Thwaites Ales featuring the newly crowned 2012’s best Mild in the world Nutty Black.
Look forward to seeing you soon.

Kind Regards,
Anson Bolton - Chef Patron and all the team at the Millstone.

“Superb restaurant, wonderful food, excellent staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

We had a wonderful experience at the Millstone. This was not our first visit. However we took friends who had never been before. They were not disappointed. The environment , atmosphere and food were exceptional. The appearance of the staff was what you would expect from an establishment of this standard Not only that they were very friendly and attentive. We will definitely be booking again.
