About The Mill St Catherine's Park
After All Day Breakfast on New Year’s Eve, The Mill will close for approximately 6 weeks to allow for the most disruptive works to be carried out as part of our exciting extension project.
The Mill Outside – our outside catering – continues to be available to cater for your private functions and events in the community throughout the time the café is closed. Please visit www.themillatstcatherinespark.co.uk for more information and to make an enquiry, or call 01772 695277.
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.
always great food and service
The food is always excellent quality and the staff are helpful and friendly. Nice to be greeted by name. Good accessible facilities. It's great to be able to reserve a table on line. Can also highly recommend the outside catering offering. Best of luck for 2020 and we look forward to visiting you when you re-open. Hx
Excellent and friendly service at ever visit
Everything second to none - booked for a breakfast and the food was perfect. Looking forward to seeing the opening of the extension in February and will be booking as soon as possible.
The afternoon tea was delicious & very reasonably priced.
Been here before and always a nice atmosphere. However, on this visit breakfast was average. Would have preferred toast on a separate plate/rack as it came on the main plate not leaving much space and a hot drink should be included in the price. I think we were over charged and had it not been a cafe associated with the hospice, we would have chased this up further. Slightly disappointed this time, I'm afraid.
Lovely relaxed friendly atmosphere. Great meeting place to catch up with family and friends.
A fantastic lunch - great service, very clean and tidy, fantastic portion sizes! Thank you for all you do!!
Fantastic food and service as always 😊
This is the 2nd year we’ve visited on Christmas Eve for a family breakfast and we’ll definitely be back next year. We had a very large party which was a mixture of ages, we were all looked after by the very attentive staff which made the whole experience super special. I would definitely recommend visiting The Mill 👍🏻
I love going to the Mill cafe as the food is v good. It gets v busy so you need to book a table or you'll be disappointed.
Have been to the Mill on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed in either service or food. However it would be good to see more veggie and especially vegan options on the menu for 2020..
Really excellent food good service and a great atmosphere made our day when my family and I had an excellent meal on the 27th December
A fabulous festive afternoon tea.
great service lovely breakfast as always
Always warm friendly service, great locally sourced food & spotlessly clean. My first choice of venue when meeting friends or family. Highly recommended.
Good food as usual
We had a lovely brunch on xmas eve the staff went above and beyond with the children asking about their xmas plans and what santa was bringing etc. They have asked to go again twice already.
Always a great experience. You just have to be organised and book in advance if you want to be sure of getting a table. Staff always welcoming.
Very good. A nice birthday celebration at Christmas. A nice change
Delicious food...the best Christmas dinner we have tasted in a long time! We really enjoyed it thank you ! The staff coped very well considering 2 people off sick. We are looking forward to seeing you again next year. Merry Christmas to you all! P s. We do visit you fairly often and although the cakes are good, we would prefer smaller cakes without so much cream and perhaps more variety please.
Had to ask for service most of the time I think the staff could be more proactive but didn’t spoil anything just waiting when you have a limited table time is a bit frustrating. Also being told 35 mins before you need to vacate the table is not customer friendly as we only ordered another coffee
Good food well served with humour and towards an excellent cause.
Very friendly staff, warm and welcoming.
