About The Mill St Catherine's Park
Our welcoming café serves up hearty and wholesome dishes lovingly prepared using locally sourced, seasonal produce. There's everything from top quality barista coffees - including our own unique St Catherine's blend - to cakes, soups, salads, sandwiches, afternoon teas and full meals on offer. You can relax and unwind in a tranquil spot, whilst enjoying a treat from the varied, seasonal menu.
The Mill is open to everyone – from business people networking over coffee, to families tucking into tea and cake, or friends enjoying a meal out together. Set in the amazing grounds of St Catherine’s Park – a green space which includes a small but beautiful sensory garden and a wetland and woodland area – The Mill gives you a reason to drop by.
The café and the rest of the building also benefits from free WiFi, making it a perfect choice for business meetings – particularly as it’s just minutes from the major motorway networks of the M6, M61 and M65. And the best bit? All profits raised through the café will go back to supporting the specialised care of St Catherine’s Hospice.
Thoroughly enjoyable experience will definitely be returning Thankyou
Lunch was lovely. The sandwich was delicious the bread was soft and fresh. Finished with a delicious banofee pie. Very friendly atmosphere with great staff.
back to its usual high standard, great breakfast great service.
Love this cafe, food is always great! The only downside is that it’s hard to get a table without booking.
Regularly pop in here for coffee, cakes and meals over the two years I have lived in this area and always get a warm welcome. Quality food and drinks and value for money. First time booked on line and it was easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Fantastic as always food is always so good and staff so friendly and attentive
Excellent food and staff.
You have a truly wonderful environment, Great venue, great food, great staff........ you should all be proud!!!
It’s no surprise that the café is becoming the place to be - I love it and welcome any opportunity to support the hospice!
Excellent service. Everyone very friendly. great fresh food.
The staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. We will definitely eat here again.
My family wanted to order off the breakfast menu which ends at 11.30am and our table was booked for this time. The friendly staff were extremely accommodating. They took our order over the phone and allowed us to order from our preferred choice of menu. The service was very good and all of the staff were enthusiastic and helpful. We will definitely be returning.
Booking made on the day of the visit. Meal hot and delicious. Perhaps little overpriced but as the proceeds go to the hospice this is acceptable
We arrived at 2pm for my birthday afternoon tea. We were offered a drink,tea and coffee about 10 mins later. We only got the afternoon tea after 2.30pm by which time we needed another drink. The food was bland and not much for £15 per person. We had to leave at 3.15 as we had another appointment so the earlier delay meant we had to rush our visit. We thought an hour and a quarter would be plenty of time to enjoy the experience. When I took the vouchers to the till I was told I had to pay for the extra drink but eventually was given credit for waiting so long. Not a very nice birthday treat really. A slice of cake and a coffee looked much more tempting.
The food was very good but the time from ordering to having the food served was slightly long. Not a problem as we were in no hurry. The staff were pleasant and helpful
Excellent food, friendly staff and pleasant atmosphere.
It's like being part of a big, happy family with good food, good banter and smiles. Happy days. Wish we could take you all on holiday with us! Or perhaps not! Not sure what you are like with several jugs of Sangria in you!!
Food was lovely, service was awful. We sat waiting for drinks for 20 minutes and when they did come it was the wrong order. The food came and was lovely but we then sat with it in front of us for at least 20-30 mins after we had finished. We then went to pay and tried to split and it took us 10 mins to pay at the till as apparently we couldn’t pay at the table, they then got the payment wrong on the till and had to get a manager to come and sort it out and she wasn’t much help either. A lot of faffing for a £40 bill. Won’t be going back
exellent breakfast and first class service!!
Nothing more to say other than 1st class
As always the service, atomsphere and breakfast’s are wonderful as are the staff
Excellent food and generous portions, great value for money. Lovely decor gand a great atmosphere and staff.
We had a lovely breakfast. The service was a bit slow because it was so busy however we will still be booking again because it is really good food..
