Set in idyllic Constable country, this restaurant has a relaxed friendly atmosphere, an excellent menu and quality food.

Milsoms is the more relaxed sister restaurant to Le Talbooth. The atmosphere is buzzing, no reservations are needed. You just turn up - and wait if necessary. But well worth it. Great food - very helpful and attentive staff. Well worth a visit!
