We were lucky to get somewhere to sit inside as it was a beautiful Sunday morning and people had been out walking. The menu was very varied offering light bites as well as more substantial fare. The home baked bread was amazing: cut into huge slices for our sandwich with a variety of fillings on offer. We would recommend!

We used to come here years ago but found it disappointing this time. We went to Otterton for a riverside walk and had fond memories of Otterton Mill as a stopping place for tea and a cake. So we visited after our walk. The site was somewhat expanded and the restaurant seemed to have been moved to a different location. It looked ok and the CD played music to our liking but the accoustics in the room produced a cacophany of noise somewhat like you find in a public swimming pool. Sadly prices too we felt were on the high side. Don't feel I can recommend it for this reason.

Thank you for your review, we are disappointed you felt the atomosphere in the restaurant was not to liking . We understand the restaurant grew over ten years ago to its current position.
We ensure our pricing is reflected by the quality of the products we source , make and ultimately sell , there are of course alternative offerings available in the market.
We are pleased you enjoyed the CD which is playing the next live act appearing at the Mill, later this month.
We do hope you reconsider your decision to recommend the Mill as many do , but do understand it will not be to everyone’s taste.

Kind Regards

Have popped in here for coffee in the past when walking the dog as this restaurant is dog friendly (dogs allowed downstairs and in the outside courtyard area). The food looked so good we vowed to come back. Very pleased that we did. Stopped for lunch and chose the crab roll with dressed salad on the side. Delicious. All white crab meat in a roll still,warm from baking. My partner chose the open beef sandwich. Again yummy with beef that had no fat, well cooked, just pink with a dressed salad. Not a cheap lunch but sooo tasty we will have to return. Thank you

Thank you for your review, delighted you enjoyed two of our most popular dishes, the crab handpicked in Brixham is the finest we can buy and the Westcountry beef we believe is some of the best.
We do look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Kind Regards

We were recommended this place for a cream tea. It didn’t disappoint. Great scones - light and fluffy. Amazing home made strawberry jam. Clotted cream that I will forever dream about. Good coffee and tea. Service was ok. It was amazing to see the mill still at work. We also loved looking at the artworks and crafts in the shop. We did a little walk along the river and were surprised and delighted to see a notice which said there were beavers around.
