The Mill House is due to close on 31/1/11 for two weeks for conversion into a Fayre & Square outlet.

Hopefully this will include a quantum leap forward in the quality of the beer that is served here.

When I visited with my family last weekend, the Pedigree was DREADFUL. How long is it since the beer lines were last sterilised ???

It put me off eating, but from the comments from those of my family that did, it seems that I did not miss much …

The one redeeming feature is that the staff were all first class.

Well we went in again yesterday, first time since it was taken over. I must say things have gone up in the world! Staff were friendly and polite, the food was tasty and it came in good time. All it needs now is a carvery, and people would be flocking in!

The last two reviews look very suspicious as both of the users have only posted one review each. I'll be sure to visit soon and see if the new management team really have made an improvement to the shoddy service, and if they have they will not need to rely on self posted comments.

Had a lovely meal here very good value for money.
heard a new manangement team have just taken over as we speak, so wish them luck because this place is in a great location overlooking the weir on the Derwent nice terrace to sit outside and watch the river goodsized garden for children to play in, a large bouncy castle there when I was there. Staff friendly and helpful and I am sure with a bit of good management this place will be a little gem soon

very friendly and proffessional staff/service.
outside wier fantastic for sitting and having a few drinks, we found the food was excellent and was all in all very pleased with the pub.

To update my last review, I've been again since and unfortunately I was once again let down by the slow service and the sheer unprofessionalism of SOME of the staff (I'm not saying they're all like that). We've decided to stop going there now, as we have decided to go back and give it another chance many times before with no improvement. It's such a shame really, as the place is in such a great location. If they upped the standards and perhaps added a carvery, they could absolutely rake in the dough.

Pub that welcomes children but offers little compared to the other pubs in the area. Couple of beers on tap at least

Great location, right next a weir on the River Derwent. If you're going to visit it make sure you go in summer and sit outside. The location and the food are the two reasons to visit. On the downside, I've often found some of the staff quite unprofessional and the beer quality isn't exactly perfect. Like I say, go there for a meal, but if you're going for a drink, head over to the Holly Bush or King William.

Yes, the Mill House is in a beautiful location at the side of the River Derwent, and I guess that on warm summer weekend afternoons and evenings the place is heaving and has a terrific ambiance.

But what is it like in the winter ???

When I called in on a cold miserable rainy November day it was like walking into large empty and souless barn. In spite of the very friendly guy working the bar it seemed to be totally devoid of any atmosphere … and it wasn’t very warm either.

There was only one real ale available (TT Landlord) and it was WELL below par especially when it cost £2.75 a pint. As the alternative was the usual selection of tasteless nitro keg gnat’s piss, I drank the TTL, but if that is the best that this establishment can do, I definitely will not be returning in a hurry …

Spacious, good menu, great for kids, nice location and outdoor seating by the river. Large Tv and Pool Table.

One for the Dad's at weekends when you have the family in tow!
