Thank you for your review. Being a Wadworth managed house, the quality of beer is so important to us..Bishops Tipple is one of our main stays. Again very encouraging that when busy we can still deliver. More

Came to eat in the restaurant the other night, after being tossed between both sides to where my booking was, a waitress was able to find us a table down in the restaurant.

If a pub can cope well with Bank Holiday Monday and being a place of meeting before a Sealed Knot battle re-enactment then it's doing something right. Four of us had (booked) lunch here- a lovely building and spot with easy parking- and with good pub food ( nothing gourmet but tasty, well cooked, good portions and reasonable price), beers,...

We ate here for a family meal. The service was poor, and food terrible. Our in laws left in disgust and upset and we only paid for drinks and some of the food. Very disappointing as this used to be a great place to eat.

Thank you for your comments. Usually I add we made numerous mistakes...unfortunately this time we didn't...I was privy to what unfolded that evening...my staff did everything to make your visit as pleasant as possible The only outcome was is that there was nothing we could do to retrieve the situation.

A friend and i ate here tonight. Veg curry for me,with rice and poppadoms really tasty. My friend also enjoyed her burger and chips. Disappointed they had no swordfish but reasonable explanation, enjoyed the bishops tipple instead. Ice cream flavours not exciting enough for me but I'm really fussy. Seriously it's a great place, great location, have been before and... More

Hello Thank you for your encouraging review. I am thankful you did not put much credence on previews reviews. We do get very busy especially when the sun shines, and previous new reviews highlight that...sometimes a little unfairly. Therefore thank you again for coming to the Mill, i am so pleased you enjoyed your experience. More

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Wasn't initially clear whether or not it was table service but once we'd located the menus the service was good. Nice menu, mixture of classic pub food and more adventurous dishes, always appreciate small plates on there. I had a ciabatta, which was very nice, but felt a bit shortchanged on the salad front. They allow... More
