A works party visited with the meals being pre booked. We got off to a bad start when we started to pour the wine with the wine glasses being dirty. The bread baskets was brought out and the slices of part baked bread were minut, they were warm but rock hard and were more like croutons. The main meals that... More

The Mill had such promise. From the outside it looks lovely, really well presented and apparently a quality place. Inside it was less so, but not bad.

No manager/supervisor in evidence. If you catch me there again--shoot... More

The good news is that this is much better than the previous one star review suggests.

bad service, from the start, attitude from the staff, swearing from the staff, very basic food for a high price, was not at all happy would never go again, called 5 times asking to speak to the manager, just got told she was not there, but was never asked to leave details so the manager could call me back,
