A group of eight had an evening meal here. Butcombe beer which is always a good start! Scallops and pork belly starter was very nice. I had a burger which was very tasty. The chocolate brownie with honeycomb was a great dessert!

The food was OK but..... We were not offered a taste of the wine we ordered. The waitress was petting another customer's dog then going into the kitchen. This happened several times. Even if she did wash her hands, she should not have been doing...More

Nice surroundings and loads of outside seating, called in on a Saturday afternoon. I had the burger and my friend opted for a starter. Waited quite a while considering it wasn't busy, but when it arrived, it was nicely presented and burger was filling and...More

The restaurant is large and comfortable and there's a very pleasant outdoor eating area, with the river flowing underneath – altogether very picturesque. There was almost no one in the restaurant, but the two staff members, although attentive, seemed a bit harried. It was a...More

I've been a few times recently, and always found the food to be great, especially the burger and the steak. Service can be slow when busy but apart from that great location and great food.

The Mill at Rode is a quintessential English inn, set on a stunning riverside site, surrounded by beautiful gardens and with a fabulous deck area overlooking the water.
This former woollen mill is one of the few surviving that once put Rode on the map as a key trading centre and market town on the Somerset and Wiltshire border. The Mill was part of a consortium that won a competition to make a dress for Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III, and invented a dye colour Royal Blue..

The Mill is now part of the Butcombe Brewery group of pubs and through sensitive restoration still connects with its industrial past, including the historic waterwheel. The pub has recently undergone a big refurbishment and the result is a carefully crafted modern, contemporary environment that is ideal for meeting friends, enjoying family time, or celebrating major events, with private dining facilities for up to 60 guests.

Renowned for its great fresh locally sourced food and convivial atmosphere, the Mill at Rode is a perfect location for all occasions. There is plenty of parking and outside the chance to try your hand at some typical English pub games such as Giant Jenga and croquet so it is ideal for enjoying the lovely natural setting on the River Frome.

Close to Bath, the Mill is a mecca for locals and visitors alike who are looking for a relaxing time. The Mill chefs pride themselves on using only the best ingredients, with as many as possible being supplied locally. On the menu are some classic British dishes such as sausage and mash with onion gravy to hearty international favourites such as dry rubbed pork ribs. And of course there is a fantastic selection of ales from Butcombe Brewery and a wide range of wines to suit all tastes and palates.
