Dropped in for lunch. Made very welcome by friendly & helpful staff who were easy to chat with. Good pint of Adnams. Nice choice of specials & menu. It all looked so good but the chips were to die for. Veg was generous and freshly cooked for us. Lovely relaxed atmosphere. In future if we don't eat here we will... More

I booked an overnight stay at Milsoms for my girlfriend's birthday. The bedroom area is compact, but the bathroom is a reasonable size. The bed was comfortable and the room was very warm (we only really noticed this in the early hours, when neither of us could be bothered to adjust the thermostat!). Complementary soft drinks and aromatherapy products are... More

We booked this a good few months in advance to celebrate a birthday and the staff were extremely helpful and took a minimal deposit to secure our booking. We had use of the lounge before eating in the Library. Beautiful table settings and candles made the evening special. The food was tasty and well cooked and all our friends loved... More

Ate here on Saturday evening with my wife, son, daughter in-law and 11 month old grandson, good service food excellent. We did not need to book which to me is a surprise considering the quality of food and service. If you are looking for a quality venue look no further.

I visited as part of a large family celebration. You can't book so we arrived early and got a table quickly. You have to order all food and drinks at the bar. At least they provide pen & paper at the table to note down orders. We found out after we ordered there was a specials menu but we were... More

Visited Milsoms for a lunch time business lunch with some customers. Service was excellent with drinks served quickly and food orders taken quickly, the food was served promptly and was delicious! In summary service and food great and the price more than reasonable in a great setting!
