Went here on Friday after a recommendation from a friend. The atmosphere was very pleasant and our meals were excellent. (Steak pie and braised steak). The menu was extensive and both of us found it difficult to choose from so many delicious sounding dishes. The staff were both friendly and helpful and we will definitely be returning, hopefully very soon.... More

He ended up with some steak with salad and a sauce which tasted like a jarred bar-b-que monstrosity. Totally awful. My meal was garlic mushrooms (this... More

We eat here a lot and are always guaranteed a great meal. The variety and portions are excellent and the staff are very helpful and friendly. The opening hours are very convenient too. I really like the way the restaurant has different areas such as dining rooms, lounges and quiet areas.

Can't believe how cheap this is for such good friendly service. Very impressed with the soft decor and homely feel to the place. Who ever did the conversion they did a great job.

Due to TripAdvisor review rules, we can only review once for the two times we visited The Old Mill recently. Both visits were top notch so that's why our favourite pub gets 5 stars yet again from us! Our first visit was with two really good friends of ours, a lunch double-date. We all sat near the back of the... More

Lovely atmosphere, service and food at reasonable prices . Would definitely recommend eating here. It is a large place so has plenty of seating for large groups if needed.

Very disappointed after all I'd heard about it being so good, we waited over an hour for food to be served and I did not enjoy mine, the veg were rock hard which I personally don't like, and I had a leek dumpling that had no taste at all. The staff were all lovely and pleasant no complaints there, but... More
