About The Old Mill

ABOUT US:
Proudly surrounded by the ambiance of Leek’s industrial history, Shoobridge Mill presents The Old Mill Smokehouse and craft ale bar. Created by Nathan and Bernadeta who share a passion about excellent food and drink, authentic flavours and creating good memories. They found an opportunity at Shoobridge Mill to match their love of the Staffordshire Moorlands and Leek, with food and drink.

COVID-19 considerations - We have worked hard to identity a safe way to re-open The Old Mill inline with government advice.
We encourage booking ahead, pre-orders and contactless payments. **Under current government guidance, tables of up to 6 people from up to 6 different households are permitted. If you wish to dine in larger groups, we will endeavour to seat your party adjacent**.

We have implemented measures to ensure the safety and security of our customers and team which is our priority. We ask our staff to ensure they are well enough to come to work. We are reducing touch points in the building and there will be sanitising points we ask you to use. We will be spacing our tables to be 1+metres apart and providing table service to avoid crowding. We will ask you to leave the restaurant by a different exit. We are increasing cleaning practices including hand washing at regular intervals. Face coverings and gloves are available for our team members who wish to wear them (they’re not those needed by NHS or healthcare professionals)

DISABLED ACCESS:
Built in the 1800’s, Shoobridge Mill has a long industrial history. As a Grade 2 listed building, we are directed to maintain the character of the building.

If you have specific access requirements, please ring us ahead of your visit to ensure we can offer the most appropriate support for you.

Tables of 10 or more are required to contact the restaurant directly. A non-refundable deposit of £5.00 per person is payable on booking in order to confirm the table. A pre-order must be returned to us at least 3 days prior to the reservation.

On special occasions such as Valentine's Day or Mother's day, we may choose to serve a set menu instead of our regular menu. Please call us on 01538 381550 to discuss this.

This was our first visit to The Old Mill and we were so impressed. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was fantastic, absolutely perfectly cooked and so flavoursome. Nothing was too much trouble. We cannot wait for lockdown to be over so we can return to try other dishes on the menu!!

Warm friendly welcome, nice relaxed atmosphere, really tasty, hearty portions of food. Fantastic ales. Service was really good, staff were all friendly and chatty. I live on the opposite edge of Staffordshire but I’d happily travel up again just to visit The Old Mill Smokehouse.

Never again would I visit this place, we had major issues with the ribs being unedible! We alerted the restaurant who could clearly see issues as we couldn't even cut them but the owner was clearly not impressed and was extremely rude. I genuinely don't think the food is smoked at all. We where treated awfully by the owner and the other staff said that's just his attitude!

The only thing I would say is I would like more choices on draught lager like Stella or kronenberg instead of speciality beers but that’s my personal choice as I don’t tend to try them so wouldn’t know what to order, or even a recommendation on what particular beer would complement a meal and An offer on bottles of wine on say early dining 5-7 would be ideal as that would of encouraged me to spend that little bit more

Tasty, plentiful food, well presented & quick service. Smells from the kitchen were delicious. A full menu - lots to choose from. No time for dessert this time, so will return for an earlier dinner. Extremely clean. Friendly, attentive staff. Great music!
