Very good experience. The food was excellent. The wine was lovely. Would recommend to others. We ordered the stake and it was cooked to perfection. High end on price but well worth it.

Four of us called at the Millstone for lunch today. The welcome from the bar staff on arrival was warm and friendly as usual. We had drinks in the refurbished bar area before moving into the main restaurant area to eat. We had an excellent steak and kidney pudding served with chunky chips, peas and a jug of gravy, two...

On a business trip and decided to stay at The Mellor one evening last week so ate at the restaurant. Not being local I hadn't realised it had only reopened the previous week following an extensive refurbishment so it was very busy.

Popped in on a Friday afternoon for a light bight and it was excellent, the food was great and the chilled atmosphere and attentive service were just the ticket. In the words of Arnold " I'll be back! ".....

We decided to try the Millstone after the refurbishment, we arrived at 6pm on a Tuesday evening, and it was very busy which is always a good sign, we couldn't get into the restaurant so we settled for a table in the bar area. The service was excellent food was very good as usual and apart from a slight misunderstanding... More

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.
