The Mill was born in September 2013 around the idea that food should be simple, fresh and local.

Following a devastating fire, The Mill has been lovingly restored to reflect the charm of our local community. Over the past decade, we have sought to create a social hub for locals and a welcoming home from home for visitors.

Our menus are expertly crafted but refreshingly unfussy. Our dedicated team always on hand but never intrusive. We strictly use Fairtrade tea and coffee and ensure that our menus embrace the freshest produce from local suppliers.

Whether it is to enjoy a light snack, a special lunch or to simply spend a lazy afternoon with friends and a cuppa – our friendly staff will ensure you are well looked after.

    Really friendly service for myself, husband, grandson (age 1) and father in law. Excellent food & they even made salt free sweet potatoes for the 1 year old. Lots of parking and a wee play area outside. Great meeting place as just off A90

    Lets start with the positives. Dog Friendly, great to have a dedicated indoor dining space that accommodates diners with dogs. Server was friendly but run off her feet, surprised they only had one waiting staff on a Saturday afternoon. They did have someone else brining the food out of the Kitchen. Areas for improvement Whilst the menu clearly outlines GF options, Coeliac's beware, the chips offered as a side with options that can be GF are cooked in the same fryer as everything else so run the risk of gluten contamination. It was only on enquiring that we found this out. This should be made clear. Also Gluten-free sandwiches come with untoasted bread and as any GF person knows, GF bread really does need to be toasted to be palatable, despite asking we needed to send the GF plate back and ask for this to happen which meant that we didn't get to eat at the same time. The rest of us ordered Smoked cheddar Mac Cheese as the last time we ate there it was really good, this time it was meh, topped with smoked cheddar but the sauce was def not made with it on this occasion. There is no drinks menu, which is odd and time consuming for the server to have to repeat for every table. Overall the food was ok, probably go back for coffee but not sure we would eat there again which is a shame as its a lovely space but could do with taking a bit more care over the food prep as it has the potential to be great!

    My friend and I had a lovely brunch on Saturday. The Mill is dog friendly and the staff are really helpful. We walked there and back on the Forfar path network, which was great, but it is easy to access from A90. Have been a few times and will certainly be back.

    Service was very good, table setting was lovely at the window and the food was fantastic. First time visit, but would happily go back. The only thing we didn't like was the fact that it was very cold. It was a lovely sunny day outside but inside it was freezing.

    Food was nicely presented and served quickly. An improvement would be to have a regular sandwich instead of open sandwiches with the soup and sandwich deal as it made eating the sandwich along with the soup awkward.

    Lovely friendly atmosphere. Freshly made food to order. I’ve been a few times now and enjoyed every visit. We’ve bought gift vouchers for family/friends birthdays we’re that confident of a good meal. Dogs are also welcome in dining room area, bonus if you want them to join you. Highly recommend 5🌟

    My husband and I ordered the club sandwich with sweet potato fries and specifically requested no avocado on neither of these. However when these came both sandwiches had avocado on them. My husband did not want to make a fuss so we both ate everything apart from the bottom layer of bread with the avocado on. No-one came near us to ask if everything was ok with our meal or I would have mentioned. We were finished our meal for over 10 minutes and no-one came to clear our dirty dishes or ask if we wanted anything else so we paid the bill and left. I did mention the avocado issue when paying the bill to the waitress but no apology was given or money taken off she just said she would let the chef know! Won't be hurrying back
