“A late Lunch”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

We turned up at 2.30 for a pub lunch. Service was exemplary, the staff are friendly witth out being unctous, nothing too rushed or worse too slow. It was no problem that we just wanted sandwiches. Wine by the glass better than average, and that avis rara a real crumbly Lancashire cheese.

£40 for 4 substantial sandwiches, and a glass of wine each.

We will return, such a refreshing change from normal pub fare

We were in this area for a wedding and needed somewhere to stay for 2 nights. A web search suggested that the Millstone was OK so we booked for a Friday and Saturday. I didn't know the area at all and Mellor is a small village on a hill with a few shops. Our welcome at the Millstone was efficient and friendly and our room was warm, comfortable and well equipped. The bathroom looked recently refitted. Everything was very clean. There were a rew things that needed maintenance - TV remote worked erratically (battery flat), the famous Corby trouser press (whichI love) had a broken knob so couldn't be used, the bathroom door didn't close completely (dropped hinge), similarly the wardrobe hinges needed attention. Some might say that I should have raised these items with the management but I don't think as a guest it is my job to check the quality of maintenance. I would of course report anything that occurred during our stay (e.g. light bulb etc). However none of these niggles affected our stay which we enjoyed.
The restaurant menu was varied with some specials and we thought the quality was very good. We only ate on one night as we out for the next but when we returned the restaurant was very busy and looked full. These were largely not residents which reinforces the quality of the food as they are able to attract diners from a wide area (they couldn't have all come fron Mellor - it's to small!). Overall if you need to stay in this area we would recommend the Millstone for a comfortable room at a reasonable rate and very good food.

Been going to the Millstone for around 6 years. I have probably eaten here over 100 times and not one of them meals I can fault. Always excellent food and service. The staff are always attentive and serve the food with a great level or pride. Staff are always great and make sure your experience here is always a great one. Not a better English restaurant around 10/10!

This was the 2nd time that we stayed here. First time on a B&B basis, this time on DB&B basis. We checked in about 6.15pm. Staff very polite and friendly. Noticed straight away that we were staying on DB&B rate and asked us what time would we like our table to be reserved for that evening. Also asked if we would like a newspaper the next morning which was nice.Our room was clean and warm with everything we needed. We had no complaints about anything. When we went for our meal our table was ready and waiting even though it was very busy. Asked if there was any restrictions on what we could have off the menu, the only thing was a small supplement if we had filet steak, otherwise we could have what we wanted. All our 3 courses were beautiful, well cooked and service was excellent. after an excellent meal we went back to our room. We both had a good nights sleep and overlaid slightly!! (We declined a wake up call). We had a lovely breakfast, which again was well cooked and served. All the staff were all friendly and polite and nothing seemed to much trouble for them. Check out was quick and easy with no problems. Overall we really enjoyed our stay again and found it to be good value by booking Dinner Bed and Breakfast. We would love to stay for a third time.

We stayed here for one night in February and were very impressed with the place. Lovely room with quality linen and comfy bed. Delicious breakfast served by friendly and well trained staff. Would stay again and would love to have dinner here, where the emphasis is on locally sourced fresh ingredients.
