Nice vibe. Staff were lovely, it was nice to see somewhere with a lot of staff and making sure everyone was catered for especially after the lockdown. If your looking for a Sunday roast with good quality meat this is your place. It is a bit more pricey than the usual dinner but the food was just delicious!

Some items missing from menu despite it being only 6-30 . Surroundings are improved from my last visit a few years ago, food was ok but not great value for the price.

Couldn’t fault the staff at Mill House. The only down side was that the open table did not confirm my booking with the restaurant, good job there was only two of us and they restaurant did accommodate us.

The online menu seemed very promising, but it turned out that this did not apply on a Sunday when effectively the lunch menu was in place all day. That limited the selection of dishes on offer. What we ordered was good enough - just would have liked to know from the off. Staff were lovely and obliging. Would be happy to revisit on a weekday.

We arrived and were seated, given menus and after a few minutes we were asked if we wanted drinks. We ordered and waited a while longer. At that point we had all decided on our meals. A waiter came to take our order. It was around 15 minutes after we had arrived, and it was only at that point were we informed that much of the menu was unavailable to the point where it was not possible for the whole party to have a meal. We had to quickly book somewhere else and rush our drinks.
We should have been told before we ordered our drinks that much of the menu was unavailable.
We have had good meals there before and we hope this is a one off experience.

Service was great, lovely team. Green veggies were VERY Al dente but cauliflower cheese was fantastic. Meat was all delicious although leg of lamb was a little fatty due to it being so pink. I love pink though, not complaining about that!

Been going for years but this was the Worse service from the manager who was incredibly rude. We waited two and a half hours for our food and when it came out it was wrong even though we spoke to two waiters and herself about a food intolerance.
Made to sign a disclaimer but even so the order was wrong.
She then came to the table to tell us that we were wrong and that we had asked for the dish that we explained we couldn’t eat.
No apology and just the worse customer experience. She didn’t offer to take anything off our bill nor did we ask we just wanted to eat and leave after that.
Won’t be returning.

Waited 55 minutes for our food to arrive, when it did mine was burnt and inedible. It was taken off the bill but spoiled the experience.

As usual food and service delivered to an extremely high standard. Fish and chips were monumental and the curry of the day was delicious. Kids always happy with pizza and burgers followed by generous helping of ice cream to finish!!
