The food is typical pub grub but it is good and reasonably priced. The staff were very helpful regarding gluten free options. Nice location right beside the river and near the castle,... More

My husband and ate dinner here on a busy Saturday night. The food was tasty, the waitstaff was friendly, and the atmosphere was lots of fun. They had live music and although the bar was packed, we got our food and drinks in a timely manner. You won't regret stopping in.

We stopped by on a Sunday night after reading reviews of the food and music. Matt The Miller's is a great stop for just that plus friendly service by the staff. The food is good bar food and the live musician was great, and added to a great time. I was surprised to see a DJ coming on around 11p... More
