Paul and Fari are such nice friendly people. The bread making day was superb, as was the lunch and other refreshments. We feel we not only learnt a new skill but made two great friends. Absolutley well worth the time and money.

Called in today for rather a lot of flour ( for all that Christmas baking). Had coffee and cake before we left. It was a lovely place to have a break and we will be back before the flour runs out!!. Very knowledgeable and helpful...owners running a lovely clean and attractive cafe .The coffee and cake were delicious. The windmill looks fascinating and we will return for a guided tour very soon.More

Tuxford Mill actually works and you can have a tour of it! We just popped in for tea and cake, but loved the range of products for sale that the mill itself processes and has available to buy. Will definitely be going again!

Visited here with my immediate family to celebrate my parents 30th anniversary and the staff can not do enough for you. We booked for the afternoon tea and it was amazing. Food is fresh and made on site unlimited hot drinks. Nothing is too much...trouble for the staff.More

Enjoyed the jacket potatoes and freshly cooked scones. The cafe is very light and airy and the staff are very helpful

Can't quite put my finger on it. The place should be excellent as its it a nice location, set back from the road with a car park and of course a Windmill. Food was ok, it just lacks any atmosphere. Service is prompt, opening times...variable.More

We've just moved to the region and Tuxford Mill is, thankfully, exceptional in our experience so far. On arrival, we saw signs warning against eating any food not purchased on premises; also groups of six or more could not be accommodated (WHAT?!). Does chewing gum...count, or wine gums? Thought this all a bit odd. Beautiful windmill. On entering the Cafe building we greeted a young female staff member and were completely ignored. A sign advised us to 'Wait Here to be Seated'. Is this a classy restaurant, we (two adults, two children) wondered. No; it's a Cafe! Oh well; we were given a choice of tables (all marked 'Reserved', strangely). We ordered tea for three (£4.80), one squash and four slices of cake. The menu gave no prices for the cake. The bill came to £18 - £18! Cake and tea was good but not exceptional. Customer service slow, unfriendly and distracted. My advice: employ fewer people. Clean toilets - tick. All in all, very little to write home about...which is a shame, because were visited with a view to regular purchases of flour in large quantities. Won't return. Far too expensive and we're clearly too much trouble.More

Lovely location and having visited mills local to us in Norfolk we decided to visit. Nice clean cafe, and we decided to have a roll each, made from the mills own flour. A bit disappointed when arrived as it was just put on a plate...with no garnish or salad! For £4.50 I would expect a bit of salad, coleslaw or crisps! We then had a look at buying some of the mills flour to take home but it was not priced so didn't bother. No room for motorhomes either, which is a shame too.More

Returning from Leeds back to Suffolk it was breakfast time & we decided to stop here to see what was on offer. It was a great decision! It was a Sunday at the end of July & we arrived at opening time to a very...warm welcome. My wife is gluten & dairy free but this was not a problem as we both chose jumbo oat porridge & it was made with soya milk & served with delicious honey & coffee to follow. The cafe is clean & comfortable & very much to our liking as a stopping place along the A1. It is easy to access & has a working windmill where they make their own different flours. The owners & staff are very friendly & the menu varied. The cafe quickly filled up on that day but it was still relaxed & we didn't feel hurried in any way. Highly recommend.More

Think so. The owners have a dog that wanders in and out of the café. Big outdoor area.
