Visited for the first time for a family Sunday lunch. Nice restaurant and ambience. Staff polite and professional. Can't fault the food. Only negative is that I had to move from my seat to let other diners walk past. Felt that I didn't have enough room behind me. Most frustrating when people want to come through with a pram whilst...

Visited here a few times now and it never disappoints, always a decent meal, very nice staff and a good atmosphere. Can always get a table, and if not they will do their best to accommodate you as soon as they can. Decent value for the food on offer and always busy which can only be a good thing. Will... More

Went for a family Sunday lunch, staff were all very friendly with good service at the bar. Lovely dining room, nicely spread out. Starters were all quite nice although the tempura fish was a little tasteless and over cooked, black pudding was tasty and as expected. The 3 roast dinners came looking promising but the (plentyfull) beef was tough and... More

We have been to the Millstone a couple of times with my parents and it was ok. Nothing amazing but ok. Our visit was on a Sunday evening - the restaurant was half full so no excuses really for what was to come. We chose to eat in the bar area which had just been refurbished which was nice enough....

Very good experience. The food was excellent. The wine was lovely. Would recommend to others. We ordered the stake and it was cooked to perfection. High end on price but well worth it.

Four of us called at the Millstone for lunch today. The welcome from the bar staff on arrival was warm and friendly as usual. We had drinks in the refurbished bar area before moving into the main restaurant area to eat. We had an excellent steak and kidney pudding served with chunky chips, peas and a jug of gravy, two...

Thank you for writing your 5 star review. Our Scotch egg starter is a very popular one so I am so glad you enjoyed it! As all our food is freshly cooked this does come with a bit of a wait but it is always worth the wait! I hope to welcome you to the Millstone in the near future... More
