The entire staff are eager to help and are always smiling. Food was good. The rooms were nice but our bed was hard and the pillows were hopeless. Having said that, overall they were satisfactory for a...

We had booked a small wedding at The Mill Forge, for June 2017. I have had to cancel as since split up with my partner, as well as now being out of work after being diagnosed with a terminal illness. Struggling with travel costs to and from hospital for treatment, the Mill Forge have decided to keep all of the...

The bagpipe player really added to the experience. The wedding meal was generous and delicious, we were able to choose individually from the menu which was great....

We stayed on a last minute break last weekend. Upon arrival we just knew it would be everything we had hoped for. Our room although fairly basic had everything we needed, was clean and had a great outlook. We visited the quaint bar area for drinks and the bar person, Margaret was a scream. A credit to the place. Although...

Attended the Close wedding on Saturday 29th October, lovely venue, lovely ceremony from Mark. Drinks fairly priced, lovely people behind the bar. Food was okay although thought Yorkshire Puds & Roast Potatoes tasted frozen. Lemon & Merange Cheesecake was beautiful! Room was nice, far too hot but really comfortable beds :) Thank you
