“Consistently Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Popped in on the way home for an evening meal, as always the service was good, food always piping hot. Opted for the roast chicken which was very tasty and chicken burger. Recommend the cinnamon ice cream, but the large chocolate melting pot was very rich. Would always suggest you book in advance at the weekend.

“Very enjoyable”

Went for lunch on New Year's day, second sitting. Even though they were very busy, the staff were excellent; attentive efficient and friendly. The food was good and we had a very relaxed meal.
We will be going back.

Thanks Lusky, a very kind review and a great start to the new year for us. We're delighted you enjoyed your visit especially as it was one of those "under pressure" days!

Hopefully you will choose us again in the future.

“Excellent dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

The Turtley Corn Mill is a 100% satisfaction guaranteed restaurant for anything from a romantic meal with a loved one to larger group meals.

The food is well presented and delicious, the service pleasant and not overpowering and the atmosphere perfect.

In a wonderful setting, it makes for a special evening out.

Budget is approx. £30 per head plus drinks for a 3 course meal.

Hi SWam411,

If that review doesn't set us up for 2013 then nothing will! Thank you so much, it's a busy time of year and for you to take the time out to write a TA review is indeed a compliment in itself. We are all delighted that you enjoyed your time with us.

Bruce.

Open friendly place to eat and drink. Good menu and they try hard to source locally. Very well worth a visit

“Favorite place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

We have been coming here for years and love the atmosphere, food and service.
We have even been in for breakfast.
We like the all day service, and when the family were younger would sometimes have a very late lunch or early dinner, with no worry about booking. There are always plenty of veggie, and fish only options.
As someone who is not happy going into a pub alone, this is somewhere where I have happily waited for others to arrive, with books, papers and games around.
I also meet a friend there occasionally for a drink as well as the bar there is sofa sitting.
We like this place a lot.
