So, exciting news - we are allowed to open the terrace on the 12th April with the pub to follow in May!
As many know, during Lockdown 1.0 & July / August we developed the terrace to be 'weather proof' with a handmade pagoda which stretches the entire length & width of the terrace. It has a retractable roof that can cover the terrace in 20 seconds so with April showers, we 're still covered (literally)
For (Re) opening we are taking the same measures we took when we closed;
Social distancing for tables
Booking slots (2 hour duration) so we can sanitise the tables & restrict the number of people in the pub at anytime
Parties of 6 or less as confirmed online bookings, anything over that number will be treated as an enquiry & we will contact you to discuss the booking.
You can now book online or contact us if you'd like to discuss the booking in more detail.
Please remember a large number of our team are on furlough currently so it's just a couple of us behind the laptop & on the phone so please be patient, we will get back to you.
A number of our dates are all ready FULLY BOOKED if you can't see a slot on the widget this is because we are full, there are alternative dates & days
TIME TO INNOVATE ❤️
What do you do when your pub is closed?
Create a new business of course 😂
Introducing 🍹📦 Letterbox Cocktails our NEW Lockdown 3.0 offer. We began making these in Lockdown 1.0, then adapted them slightly, came up with some more ideas, recipes, mixes, then in Lockdown 2.0 we were asked to send some to a customers friend, which we did so they could Zoom together to celebrate a birthday. Then 💡💥💥 we said, why don't we figure out how to do this for everyone, so we did ❤️
After some testing for NYE we are now ready to 🚀 launch. Coming to you (or friends) from the pub, slipping straight through the letterbox as a little surprise
Gastro To Go
FOOD BOXES TO YOUR DOOR
Jason has been working hard in the kitchen to create our NEW Gastro to Go boxes. If you can't come to the pub, well, the pub can come to you!
Sending out every Wednesday, Thursday & Fridays or if you're local you can come down to the pub to collect after 1400hrs.
For launch we are also popping in two of our fabulous new cocktails as a thank you treat ❤️
THE MOST SECURE CLICK & COLLECT
IN THE UK
With all the news of reopening & the phenomenal uptake on the letterbox cocktails & gastro boxes we have stopped the takeaway nights
The support has been incredible 🍔🥛🍟🍗, but this Lockdown we have decided to stop the takeaway nights & focus on getting the pub looking ship shape & our letterbox cocktails with the food boxes are creating plenty of work for us to be getting on with!
Thank you to everyone that has ordered, gone out of your way to support us, it has been amazing to be part of & hopefully we have delight bellies along the way.
The Gift of
Eating out in 2021
BUYING THE GIFT OF GOING OUT??? SURELY NOT...
Fancy buying a gift this Christmas for a loved one, friend or colleague that can give them then excitement of dining 'out' in 2021....you know that we have the answer!
To reassure you, we're not going ANYWHERE, we have owned the Mill since 2007, been through a recession, a divorce, two break ups (amicable) & we have a brilliant team just itching to get back following Tier 4 & probably Lockdown 3.0
This Christmas you can buy a gift of going out in 2021 & we promise it will be a fab experience ❤️
THE TERRACE IS COMPLETE ❤️
Social distancing we were told. Outside spaces if possible. That was back on April. So, we listened, we swallowed hard & we invested into one of the most incredible spaces in the UK.
Now look what we've created!! Complete with a fully retractable roof in three sections, fully heated with the latest in technology & emissions, comfy for bums with padded seating & extremely comfy dining chairs. Come sun, rain or snow, we have it covered....

Stay the night
SIX BOUTIQUE ENSUITE BEDROOMS
Set in the heart of the mill we have six boutique, ensuite bedrooms. During Lockdown 2.0 we have been upgrading the bathrooms with new wet rooms, added some TLC to each of the rooms to present a home away from home. We're not fancy, we're rustic, homely & friendly. When you stay with us, our goal is to allow you to escape, relax & enjoy the Mill. You won't find a better sunset anywhere in the country & if you're an early bird, you can enjoy the lake springing to life as the sun rises.
