We came here for dinner on the recommend of a friend, and we ourselves couldn’t recommend highly enough! It’s a beautiful cosy old inn and dog-friendly. The food was absolutely outstanding and a fantastic wine list to match.

We went to the Millbrook Inn for a slap up lunch and we were not disappointed. This was cooking at its best. If you want a cheap pub lunch don't go here. If, on the other hand, you are after tickling your taste buds and...More
