“Very good Cream Tea in pleasant and interesting old building.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2013

Calling in at The Old Mill for a cream tea was definitely a good choice. The good-sized scones were fresh and tasty and the tea was very good quality "proper" tea requiring the use of a tea-strainer. The history of the mill is worth the couple of minutes it takes to read the information leaflet left on each table. The staff were efficient and pleasant. Just one minor personal niggle - could have done without the radio being on in the background.

“Quaint Little Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2012

Stopped by for a toasted panini one rainy wet day in October.

Very cosy atmosphere, and food was good too. Soup looked very nice, but seemed to have sold out already. Even had proper tea leaves as opposed to those new fangled bag things.

Staff were professional, but exactly overly friendly. No Hellos, goodbyes or thank yous as you might expect from smaller tea rooms.
