I've been to the Mill Bay to eat on many occasions & every time we are so impressed with the whole package. The food is amazing & nothing is to much for the staff, they are so helpful & welcoming. Came recently on a Sunday & the one thing which was sad to see was the way the chefs spoke... More

We received a very warm welcome at Mill Bay and it was warm and cosy by the open fire. The portions were huge and... More

My friend and I had just completed along walk( for us) from sandown to ventnor and we're looking for somewhere to eat and came across this inn. We were greeted with such warmth and had a really excellent fish pie - homemade for supper. Just the job. Best fish pie we've had for ages.
