About The Millhouse Skidby
Our menus incorporate some of Britain and Europe's best-loved dishes together with other gourmet selections from England, Italy and France. All dishes are prepared with fresh seasonal produce and combine local ingredients with those sourced further afield.
Enjoyed the food and service. Staff were attentive even though there was a function. Would recommend.
We simply loved our visit, food was very enjoyable and the staff where delightful. Very nice deco and beautiful scenery. I would imagine that weddings would be wonderful in this setting. To offer a critique to make it even better, on arrival a little more attention paid to the welcome especially for people who are not regular visitors. Plenty of staff who were busy on tasks therefore felt a little left, not a huge problem. I was a little cold but was sat near a window. If you’re offering me skin (on fish) then I’d prefer it crispy and the Eton mess would have benefited from home made meringue, the sauce was something else and superb. Prawn cocktail was perfect and we were made to feel ok about sharing the starter and the dessert. On the whole a wonderful lunch time treat and will return
We were a party of 5 persons, therefore i was shocked to receive the bill for 9 persons, on the second attempt the bill was for 6 persons, on the third attempt the bill was correct !!!
We had a wonderful evening. Top quality food with great service and a lovely atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.
The food is very good and the service was excellent
On booking I asked for a table overlooking the gardens and we didn't get one. It was a 60tb birthday so it would have much nicer for my wife. We waited 15 mins to get drinks at the bar as the lady serving was dealing with drinks for people already dining. Between main and pudding we had to wait for quite a while. We had to move glasses to another table is our table was getting cluttered. I'm sorry to complain but the waiters waitresses seemed to dealing with 're arranging chairs and wiping tables rather than tending tables. As I would class the millhouse the best of the best in the area I did feel a bit let down by the service. My last visit quite a while ago was really attentive and speedy but not this time. I'm being truthful and not grumbling as it's something I don't tend to do but as this was a special occasion for my wife I did feel let down by the experience.
Our Christening event was well managed from the booking through to the actual day. The food was delicious and the staff very attentive. Many thanks.
Average food quality but premium prices. Service was poor to begin but improved slightly during the meal. Took 4 waiters/waitresses to confirm if our wine choice was available or not.
Our lunch was a family gathering and the restaurant was great for that. Lots of other family groups of various sizes for various types of celebration. Food was really great and the service spot on. One meal was wrong upon delivery we ordered beef and got seabass but it was excanged really quickly and with no fuss. My only request would be more custard on the bread an butter pudding but I'm sure that if I had asked for more I'd have been brought it without a problem.
The service and atmosphere were very really good. We had the Saturday set menu- We both had pate, the pate was good, ham very good and tasty, not sufficient bread and we had to ask for butter. My partner had steak for the main and stated it was good. I had chicken it was ok, the mash was not very tasty and the sauce was ok, but there was not a selection of seasonal vegetables that I would expect in a nice restaurant. The desserts were ok. the best part of the night was listening to the pianist especially when he played for the wedding party.
We did come early but there was only one other couple in the restaurant when we were there. Food was fabulous - just need more sauce with the Katsu chicken. When people contact you be telephone, maybe mention the chauffeure service? We live in Skidby and most probably would have used it last night and stayed longer? Will definitely come again.
I ordered and paid for one afternoon tea and one champagne afternoon tea. We were brought out two glasses of champagne- both of which my partner drank as I was driving. In hindsight I should have said something at the time, but when I came to pay our bill the extra champagne was automatically added- we weren’t asked at any point- just assumed by your staff. I paid because we consumed it and it was for a birthday treat so didn’t want to make a scene just disappointed we were never asked about it. I felt the food was average, for the lovely place and surroundings I honestly expected more.
An excellent Sunday lunch. The service was attentive without being intrusive.
Starter was basically a 5 pound warm breadcake..main was lovely but quite pricey. Atmosphere was a bit like a care home.
Couldn't fault anything. Staff were attentive and very helpful. Food was excellent. Really helped to make our celebration special.
Excellent service lovely afternoon tea thank you
Lovely meal, staff friendly and helpful nothing to much trouble. Booked to go again
Wonderful evening , fabulous service food and surroundings . Faultless
Excellent Service from entering to leaving. Food was presented well and well worth the money. Good choice on Menu will make us book again.
A lovely evening highly recommended
Superb food with great service a truly enjoyable evening thank you .
We were disappointed that there wasn’t anyone to greet us when we arrived and as it was our first visit didn’t really know where to go. 1 waitress taking the drink order was quite abrupt but older male waiter was very friendly. Table we were sat at, waiting for pre dinner drinks needed a wipe as sticky and wet. Although not busy when we were eating I felt the service was quite slow and had to wait quite a long time for starters and then for the mains. This table was also sticky and would have preferred all of the glasses that we weren’t using to be cleared away as seemed very cluttered. Very young waiting staff who seemed to just wander around the room too! That’s all the negative and not a massive problem. The positives are that the restaurant is lovely and spacious and the prices for drinks and food are all reasonably priced. My daughter is a vegetarian and always struggled with choices, this pre ordering from the vegan menu 24 hours before is a really good idea and wished other restaurants did the same. Her food was fantastic and interesting which she loved. All of the starters were presented beautifully and all tasted fresh and delicious. Mains were exactly the same. Excellent produce used and were beautifully presented. I’m afraid to say we were too full to try dessert but next time we’ll skip the starters. Only when I checked my bill the next day did I notice that we’d been given and obviously paid for house red even though we’d ordered the South African Merlot. The wine was fine but not sure why that happened, and my daughters vegan starter at £6 and mains at £13 was written as 2 mains @ £10 each! The overall experience was lovely. We were celebrating my husbands 60th birthday with our family and all 7 of us agreed we had a very nice evening.
We enjoyed a birthday celebration at the Millhouse. The three course Sunday menu was great value for money at £22. My family all chose differently so there was lots of comparing and tasting . Food was presented to a high standard. Overall we had a great experience.
We celebrated a family occasion & had a lovely time. Steve the Manager could not be more helpful, very attentive & nothing was too much trouble. Our only disappointment was the waiting time for our food, we had pre ordered 5 days in advance but still waited 1 hour 15 mins for it to arrive, then a further 50 minutes for the desert to arrive, however, it we will not put us off from returning which is mainly down to Steve & the young lad/waiter who looked after us.
