Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Once again a very good lunch and once again we could not resist the deserts! For the first time, at this location, I enjoyed a very generous and well prepared Sunday roast. The beef was tender and very tasty, personally I like mine a little...pink in the middle but the portions was generous. Great selection of vegetables and roast potatoes crisp on the outside and lovely and soft inside. My partner enjoyed the calves liver which was thinly carved and perfectly cooked and presented. The children enjoyed their fish and chips followed by a selection of ice creams. My waffle with ice cream and banana.More

Brilliant service and great food. After a poor experience in another restaurant recently this restored our faith in eating out. We both had fish - I went for the seabass which was just amazing. The staff were friendly and really worked hard to check everyone...had what they needed. We will definitely be backMore

Oh my goodness what an amazing spot. Every time I go I am welcomed as if I was home. Whether I come with my other half or as a whole gathering nothing is a problem. I came and had the roast chicken in a gorgeous...mushroom sauce and my children who can be picky finished every mouthful of their very well sized meals. Not only was the food fantastic but every member of staff I came across had a smile and nothing was too much. The staff were efficient and polite with our drinks being topped up at any time. Thank you so much Old Mill team will be back very soonMore

More a question of why we decided not to dine here. Just up the road is Stubbs. similar in price but with the addition of a set lunch menu which does help with affordability. The Old Mill doesn't seem to offer this, hence, we didn't...book. Are they missing out? Well I guess that's for them to decide but in times of stretched finances for many, I would have thought so. We've decided to book at Stubbs.More

I came for Christmas Day lunch with friends. The occasion was very enjoyable with great waitresses. I had the traditional Christmas dish - all was cooked well as were the starters and dessert. All in all very good and hope to return sometime.

Superb meal. Good "specials" selection, but went for a rib-eye, and couldn't fault it. Pleasant surroundings, and 1st class service

We had an excellent family meal at the Old Mill. Very friendly service, good atmosphere and top class food - one of their Chef's named Baz was particularly friendly and went out of his way to cater for my daughter who is gluten and diary...free. We all had an excellent time and I highly recommend the pub (and their Chef Baz!).More

After a successful first visit we thought we would try again but this time at the weekend when it would be busiest. And to our surprise this didn’t change a thing! Service was still great and food was still fantastic! Very happy to see the...ribs on. This place is becoming our new regular treat meal place. Keep up the great work.More

Came for a dinner with some friends and ended up being there for around 4 hours! Lovely atmosphere, great food and friendly staff! I had the mushroom curry (really good) whilst friends of mine had steak, ribs and chicken! All portions were more than generous...yet we still managed to squeeze in pudding! Definitely recommend and will be back!More

All I can say about the experience is disappointing! Food was average, service was poor and it was over priced. Not the worst meal I have ever had but definitely a long way from being the best! I will not be going here again.

First time trying the old mill. Had a lovely evening celebrating my anniversary with my partner! We had the nachos to share As a starter, when I say it was big enough to have as a main is an understatement! They were delicious! Then we...have the pork belly and the duck on the specials, both were delicious! The staff were very friendly and nothing was a problem! When we arrived the women who grated us was very friendly. The waitresses customer service could not fault! I would highly recommend the old mill to all my friends and family! We will be back!More
