Having heard about this restaurant from friends who love it, we went along for dinner and were very impressed. I had the beef burger and my partner had the cod special, both were outstanding. The lemon tart was lovely too. We'll be back.

Popped in with two friends of mine, used to come here all the time but haven't been in a while. Very disappointed in this visit. Food was not up to the standard we fondly remember. Always used to highly recommend this place, I think I will be changing my recommendation to a more reputable establishment in this town. Service was... More

Wasn't impressed with this restaurant in the past. But decided to give it another go as a friend wanted to go here. We were both disappointed. Service from waiting staff was poor. Not the friendliest bunch. We had a couple of questions re the menu and the waitress just looked at us blankly, didn't make any attempt to find out... More

We stopped here after the Jameson Experience. The food was of average pub grub standard and the location was fine. The service was good and the staff were friendly.

The Mill Wheel was recommended to us some time ago, so in December we booked a table for four. We received a friendly welcome and had a really excellent meal, it is a bistro bar and the pub is quite close to the restaurant, but doesn't that add to the atmosphere, we will return shortly.

We ate here on a Monday night (why wasn't it packed..it has no competition on a Monday night) and it was just spot on. Nicely cooked steaks and a bottle of red. Just perfect. Deserts were great too and the service was so casual but friendly. These people deserve your business Midleton folk!

Just had dinner and I have to say it was disappointing. We had heard great things and it just didn't deliver. It was quite basic, I had pate to start which nearly needed a trowel to get it out of it's dish as it was so cold and hard. I asked if I could make a small substitute for the... More

Myself and my two friends met here one Fri evening for a bite to eat. We hadn't reserved a table however we were promptly seated and service was fantastic. While the starter did seem a bit on the small side I was glad when my main came out - huge. I had the curry and it was to die for.... More

Myself and 2 family members had a meal here on the August Bank Holiday Sunday night. We hadnt booked but we were promptly shown to a table. It was busy but our order was taken quickly.
