Can't understand the bad reviews. Came to this restaurant on a very busy Sunday afternoon, booking is essential as the place was packed! We had a lovely table in the conservatory, we all got starters I got the mushrooms in the creamy sauce, others got patè and bruschetta everyone said they enjoyed their starters. We all then had Sunday dinners,... More

Been a few times but never left a review Nice place to visit with several asthetically pleasing things to look at Food was lovely at a resonable price Can get a little cramped and also slightly darker than I would have liked but it did create an ambience Would definitely recommend

Never tried the mill house before and never again! Arrived lunchtime impressed with the inside. There was a display cabinet with tapas they didn't look very appetising, in fact they looked as if they had been there for days. Sat down got the menus and I have to agree with the other comment on here there is not a lot... More

We have been to the Mill House many times over the last few years but have not been for about nine months and decided to go for a nice meal, we could not have been more disappointed, the menu was very limited with a very poor choice of food, I ended up trying the tuna teryaki stir fry with noodles,...

Had a birthday meal here last night for my partner and there was 22 of us. Orders weren't pre-booked beforehand and the staff did amazingly well to get everything correct, out at the same time and piping hot too! There was also no waiting ages about between courses! A girl named Rebecca was absolutely fantastic and nothing seemed a bother... More

My wife and I have passed The Mill House countless times, often on the way to The Bowes Incline, and, almost as frequently, have said "We must try that place, there's always lots of cars in the car park". So today, after our weekly supermarket shop, we did just that. The first impression is that The Mill House is, indeed,... More

Pretty good food and love all the little quirky touches there are in the bar and restaurant. Two negatives were that the cordial drinks I had were £1.80 which I think is pretty expensive for a soft drink. Also, my tiramasu dessert was rather sweet and not very much coffee flavour. One of the women was lovely and checked with... More

How can a restaurant go down so much in a year.? My husband and I travel to Jarrow each year to spend Christmas with family and every year we have Dinner at the Mill House. This year we arrived there as a party of seven at 6pm too early for our liking but we were told later bookings were full.... More
