We went here for lunch. The girl who I assumed was the manager was extremely obnoxious. Rude and not hospitable at all. As I have worked managing in hospitality and catering practically all my life. I do have a very good idea of professional behavior...and her and her staff showed none. Dance music on at 12 in the afternoon. Shows complete lack of respect to the diners. Don't get me wrong. I love that music. But there is a time and a place for it. Staff snogging right in front of us. Hmmmmm go in the back. I don't want to see people locking lips in front of me while I'm eating. Get a room. I love what is on the menu. Looks great. But advertising a flaming grill and not have a basic peppercorn sauce. Which is extremely easy to make and which is a popular sauce on steaks to say at 12 in the afternoon. We don't have any is absolutely ridiculous. If you want I can go and teach them how to make the sauce. It's very simple. Yours HeatherMore

I have been visiting the Rodmill for 20 years when I visit my parents. We usually walk but my mum has Parkinson’s now so we drove and parked. I’ve just got a £100 parking fine! Unbelievable! We weren’t asked by the bar staff and have...never heard of this before. We won’t be going again. Which is a shame as the staff are nice and the food is good.More

We had placed a wrong order, totally our mistake, and the Rodmill had no obligation to refund us after we placed our order (using the app). However we were so relieved when we made contact with the staff and immediately we were shown excellent customer...care. A very kind and helpful lady instantly organised a full refund. We will absolutely be using this restaurant again and highly recommend.More

On visiting this venue the card machine went down, not staff fault but also there was nothing they could do about it. Whilst trying to explain the issue the person who came across as the manager, was chewing her way through her steak dinner which...was chopped up on plate at a nearby table, whilst running to and from it to the bar. Charming. The staff were constantly so loud throughout the entire visit, not pleasantly so. At one point the 'manager' was having an argument with a waitress both standing customer side of the bar. Customers who were sat in front of them were obviously regular as the said manager turned to one and said Gary, who I assumed from the argument was kitchen staff, was a ****. Very professional, not! We waited ages for our food so long we would have left if we had not paid. When it eventually came it was luke warm and reassembled a microwave meal, my friends chips were stodgy, only warm and were clearly not fresh. We won't be returningMore

We visited Fri 20th August planning to have a ribasaurus - sadly no longer available on the new menu. So we went for the chick n mix challenge which had lots of various chicken options. Do remember it's 25% off Challenges on a Friday so...worth trying ! Well done team Rodmill.More

Yes there is karaoke on that night from 8:30, may I suggest you reserve a table in the dining area between numbers two and nine which are those furthest away from the live music. Julie Collier General manager.
