A table for 12 was booked for seven adults and five chiildren on xmas eve! The meals were all pre-ordered. We were welcomed with a great atmosphere and helpful staff. Although the place was heaving on one of the busiest nights in the year, there was no rushed feeling and staff payed particular attention to the children. Faultless service and... More

We visited on 7 Jan and had a lovely evening. All of our food was excellent with good flavours and portion sizes. The wine list is a good length, reasonably priced and a good number are available by the glass. The ambience is relatively smart (in the restaurant) but not stuffy. The service was friendly and attentive. Very much recommended.

The food was delicious, and the roaring log fire and the setting is great. The service could have been a little better- they forgot our side order so we had to ask and they didn't bring Cranberry sauce as described on the sandwich ( It was quiet at our time of dining). This could have been improved by the waitress... More

Went for a quick lunch yesterday. Food was fine no complaints. There was no drinks menu to look at, we was waiting for someone to take our order for about 15 minutes, waitresses kept on walking past us like we wasn't there. Very under staffed thats why the service was poor.

We visited here as we could not get in another restaurant nearby, Christmas and they were booked up. We are so glad, our reception was warm and friendly the hotel was very busy but as we were with friends they found us a quiet table where we could talk. The food and service were first class and very reasonably priced.... More

Lovely restaurant, nice decor. Staff very polite and efficient. Lovely starters of scotch eggs, battered black pudding, welsh rarebit and chipalato sausage sharing platter, delicious. Two of us had steak and kidney pudding, chunky chips and mushy peas. only criticism was that the chunky chips were a little hard, could have done with being fried for longer. One of us... More

I can't fault the Millstone at Mellor. The bedrooms were clean, well furnished and comfortable. The food in restaurant was excellent, both in the evening and breakfast. The service throughout the hotel was also excellent, with the staff willing to go out of their way to ensure we had a good experience. In particular, Daniel, our waiter was fabulous- nothing...

25 of us went to the Millstone for a Christmas party. We had a selection of meals, with enough choice for everyone. The food was very good. It is a traditional, cosy resturant (wood panels etc.). An ideal place for Christmas. The staff are excellent and attended to all our needs.
