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.

A large group of us booked this venue for my fiances 40th birthday meal, we all sat in the conservatory and had a brilliant time. The food was AMAZING 5 Star, the service was exemplary, and all the staff were extremely helpful, friendly, and attentive...to all our needs. I would 100% recommend this venue to anyone else thinking of a sit-down meal with excellent food.More

Worst carvery ever. Went large but only 1 Yorkshire, no pigs in blankets. Almost Easter but no lamb. Queuing system is a joke, you wait for meat then stand in front of everyone in queue for potatoes, parsnips & golf ball hard stuffing balls. Beef...tough as boots. Gravy as thin as my ale. Carrots in water so when you spoon them from counter they drip all over Mash. No idea what red liquid brocoli was in. Not even asked how meal was. Male member of staff that appears to do nothing apart from say he'll get waitress. Please avoid this place.More

So I had booked The Millers for a wake to celebrate the life of my late partner. She was a popular lady and with the buffet lunch that was ordered and the 100+ guests, I would have imagined that The Millers income for a random...Wednesday afternoon was somewhat higher than normal. At first everything was okay, the food was acceptable and they said they could accommodate our numbers and this was true - just about. But then came the time when my 15 year old niece enquired with the bar staff about whether or not they had any gluten free crisps that my 7 year old daughter would be able to eat. She then received a packet of crisps being tossed at her across the bar and was very curtly instructed that she would have to ask the parent about that. I was curious about this excessively rude reply and approached the member of staff myself and I also received a similarly dismissive response; 'I cant read the ingredients, can you ?'. When being challenged about this style of response I was informed 'I am the owner and manager of The Millers, so if you have anything to say, then you can say it to me'. Well, I was saying it to her. A friend attempted to intervene on my behalf and explain that this was my wake and that perhaps and different way of handling the problem would be better. This caused 'The owner and manager' to seemingly loose all interest in us and the problem and walk away. That is my experience, I will leave others to draw their own conclusions. However as a direct comment to 'The owner and manager', if you are indeed the owner and manager, could I perhaps suggest that you consult UK law and the standards advised by the Food Standards Agency, which both clearly state and mandate that the onus on providing allergen information is yours, not your customers. Just to make your life a little easier I have included a couple of helpful links, should you wish to manage your establishment better. As an aside, I will be contacting the FSA and suggesting to them that you have little or no idea what allergens are, that you have no idea of your legal responsibility to provide allergen information on packaged and unpackaged food and that they perhaps might like to look at your allergen checklist and documented information you are required to supply customers on request. I had to remove the specific links to the guidance and applicable laws as they were falling foul of TripAdvisor's self promotion security. So you will need to do a little of the work yourself. Guidance ... Allergen guidance for food businesses on the Food Standards Agency website. The actual law ... Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council, you can find this through a number of legislative or UK government websites. ThanksMore

Visited The Miller tonight and was really disappointed with the service, especially from the Manager! He was rude & arrogant and clearly lacked customer service skills! Maybe he needs to re think his career path… No wonder the place is short staffed because if that’s...the way he talks to his customers goodness knows how he treats his staff! Want a great customer service?…. go elsewhere !!More

We're fairly regular visitors here, but we had such a good meal recently, I thought I ought to share our experience. 2 adults, 2 teens, Friday evening meal. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere, great food and drinks at superb value. 1 teen did the standard carvery...and really enjoyed a generous plate of food. The other teen had a burger which disappeared in short order! My partner and I both had rump steak, medium cooked. 1 x 8oz & 1 x 16oz. Both cracking pieces of meat, cooked to perfection and with no gristle or fat. End result, 4 x empty plates! Drinks were also fine and particularly good value. Thanks guys for a great meal, we'll be back soon.More

Appalling! The waitress was extremely rude and very unhelpful, we were there to celebrate a family members birthday who is gluten intolerant we asked the waitress in question what was gluten free she replied that the nut roast was gluten free which we proceeded to...order, I couldn’t recall seeing the gluten free sign on the online menu which made me query this again with another waiter he told us this was not at all gluten free! The waitress in question looked very uninterested and said we could have a plate of vegetables instead. At this we got up and walked out, gluten free is a medical requirement for some people and has to be taken seriously clearly this waitress and establishment have no knowledge and clearly just do not care!!More

We all ordered steaks each having different sauce. I ordered mine first and pesificly asked for them to check that the sauce that I wanted was gluten free which the server said it was. When the meals came out 2 of us were given the...wrong sauce after one of the steaks was brought out with the wrong sides (which between us we switched) back to the sauce situation it wasn't until I poured the sauce onto the steak and taken a mouthful that I realised that it was the wrong sauce. We spoke to the servers and was told that it's ok I can still eat it. But it wasn't what I ordered and also I don't like what was in that sauce so wouldn't have ordered it in a million years. We asked for it to be sorted and within 5 minutes it was brought back out I realised that it was the original steak and questioned the fact with the server who confirmed that it was the original steak that I was given. So obviously the steak mushroom and tomato had been washed and brought back out so asked to speak to the manager who was very rude and said that he had not washed it but put it back on the grill and burnt off the sauce (so obviously would have then tasted like burnt sauce and wouldn't have been what I had ordered in the first place) rudely asked what I wanted him to do with the plate of food as it's a Friday night?when I said that I didn't want it he snatched it off the table and stormed off without any form of apology or offer of an alternative . He was extremely rude and quite aggressive in his mannerisms and he upset myself to the point that I could feel my PTSD getting triggered which I just about managed to control. So I sat there watching my family eatMore

Family of 7 and 2 children for a meal. Three menus. Tad confusing. Opted for ploughman’s. Stick of celery. Bit of tomato. Two pickled onions. Two decent bits of cheddar. Few grapes and pickle. White roll. No option for granary. £12.95. Total let down. Needs...some mixed salad and coleslaw to bolster it. Others went for pub grub. Steak. Fish and chips. Gammon. Sausage and mash. All fine. Mediterranean vegetable tart was a much better salad option. Single zero beer. Service was attentive but the varied menu and selection choice resulted in a 40 min wait for food. Nice outside space to eat. Plenty of parking. Lots of seating inside. Table was sticky. Glasses kept sticking to table. Good for a large group and decent pub grub at fair price. Not gastro experience but pleasant enough.More
