“Exceptional value and quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

Revisited after a gap of a few months.Fairly quiet Friday.There was a big wedding reception on the first floor.We thought the kitchen would be challenged and lunchtime patrons might suffer,but were wrong !

Lunch was fish pie and lambs liver.Both at the exceptional (normal lunchtime) discounted price of £7 each.The quality was exceptional with my fish pie being loaded with,well,fish ! So many other establishments pile the dish with mash,but not this time.My wife had her favourite of lambs liver which she declared as "best for ages"and was better than a recent lunch at The Gumstool at Calcott Manor,which cost double the price.Drinks were Stroud brewery Co Budding (£3.75) and a medium size Sauvignon Blanc (£4.00).

Remarkable value and quality and highly recommended.

“Fantastic food ”

I came here for a business meeting and I have to say the gourmet burger was the best I have ever tasted. It was also served with a smile. Thank you!

“Great Family Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

We had a family lunch at Egypt Mill last weekend. Our table was in the Wheel Room so we had a view of the working water wheel. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, they were very busy and there was a bit of a wait between courses, but as we were not in a hurry this wasn’t a problem. Also, as the portions were very generous the gap between courses worked well and we were ready for the next dish when it arrived. All of the food was of a high quality and well presented. There was a good selection on the menu, with several roasts and plenty of non roast options. Two of us had roast lamb which came with thick slices of very tender lamb and a large bowl of vegetables. I’ve already recommended it to a work colleague who will be visiting the area and would recommend it to anyone else looking for a restaurant in Nailsworth.

“A special place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

This converted cotton Watermill is located just off the A46 in Nailsworth, a few miles south of Stroud. As well as the wheel, some of the original machinery at ceiling level has been preserved too: it is not difficult to imagine the Restaurant when it was a noisy and vibrant industrial setting.

Despite being large, booking is recommended as this is a popular venue.

There is a wide ranging menu, including traditional English dishes such as "steak and kidney suet pudding" which are quite rare nowadays. The portions are large and well cooked.

The staff are friendly and reasonably attentive.
