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.
Lovely, as always!
The afternoon tea was lovely and the staff are so friendly
At my birthday celebration tea for 10 people I was surprized to be charged for some extra pots of tea. However, when I raised this with staff, I was told that (on this occasion only) the charge would not be made. Also from memory on a previous occasion we had some delicious scones. This year - although jam and cream were on the table - there were only a few tiny scones on the cake plate. All in all, quite a disappointing celebration. I know the profits go to the hospice - which I support in other ways - but I was very disappointed on what should have been a memorable occasion.
Lovely service and excellent food, thank you
Love the online booking service. Food was excellent as always
Love to come here with friends or family, lovely relaxed atmosphere, great food & great staff.
Had a lovely relaxing lunch with my friend and as always the staff are very welcoming, the sandwiches are freshly prepared but everything especially the lovely cakes are delicious.
Excellent everything. I love it here.
I have visited here several times and have always been welcomed by friendly staff. The food is cooked fresh and all locally sourced and is amazing. It's a MUST visit.
Easy to reserve. Outstanding food. Service exceptional. The cakes were to die for. Probably the best cafe in the area
Lovely afternoon tea. I would have preferred a bigger scone and one less cake but that is personal preference. The savouries were delicious and vegetarian sandwiches lovely. It was refreshing to be able to have decaf tea as not all dining establishments offer it. We felt very welcome and unrushed.
Excellent in every way, as always.
Enjoyable meal Great opening hours
The table we were taken to was for 4 and the booking was for 5. The coffee order was mixed up completely and had to be taken back and sorted out. Two of the party had soup of the day which they described is tasteless.
We had a lovely meal the service and food was good to we would book again next time in order not to be disappointed I also went to a wedding where it was the mill that catered for and the food was excellent Thank you
The only downside was that our table was right next to the entrance
Was a lovely afternoon tea for two ....my neice has already booked to come again. Pam ....
Food and staff excellent as always!
Always enjoy our breakfast at The Mill - a real treat. Lovely coffee and great quality ingredients cooked well for an excellent full English.
Always worth a visit you can’t beat their full English and the team are always welcoming thanks and we will definitely be back
Superb food, relaxed surroundings...supporting a fantastic place
Had lovely lunch. Food and service excellent
Lovely food and service on first visit, wasn't disappointed. Recommend a visit.
Always enjoy my visits here - food is unfailingly good! Pity, though, yesterday at even at 1 o'clock there was none of the Hake dish left, and no chicken at all!! Ah well, the trusty bacon, brie and tomato sandwich didn't disappoint!!
