We had sherry in a very comfortable lounge pre lunch whilst we looked through the menu. I couldn't recommend this restaurant more. The staff were lovely and very professional. The food excellent. Well done to the chef we will definitely be coming again.

We bought a voucher for the Mill End for a two course lunch, knowing that we'd be keen on both a sweet and a drink or both. The hotel is not far from us on the side of the River Teign, a nice walk through the woods to Chagford. Two lovely gin and tonics were served in the lounge area... More

Good menu of tasty dishes with some intersting flavours. Highly enjoyed 2 evening meals. Only criticism is that all dishes appeared complex and could have done with something simpler such as plain fish. The wine list was good and varied.

We went for a weekday lunch which we thoroughly enjoyed. There is a comfortable lounge for drinks before and after the meal whilst the dining room had clean modern furnishings in an old part of the property with a large window overlooking the mills water wheel. Service was friendly and efficient and the food was well prepared. As of today... More

We had been out walking and saw the banner for afternoon tea. We parked, walked to the front door past a window. The staff were all sitting down and two of them noticed us. We went into the reception and there was no-one there. We waited for 5 mins and then looked for an indication of where the afternoon teas... More

I am very sorry to read about this. Our afternoon teas do need to be booked however it is unacceptable that no greeting was offered to you at least when you came by. We often have guests come in straight from the moor and have no pretensions about dress code or anything. We pride ourselves on our friendly service and... More

I went to the Mill end for lunch and it was amazing. It's a bit out of the way but well worth the drive. The staff are very accommodating and the food is out of this world, the Sauvignon Blanc wine was well worth ordering. The rooms were all dressed in a period janrer and the added Xmas decorations did... More

We stayed at the Mill End about fifteen years ago and returned for lunch during a recent visit. We started with drinks in the living room, which seemed a bit run down - stains on the rug, spilled sugar under a table, etc. The lunch menu was not as creative as we had hoped or experienced before. Soup was good,... More

We are sorry to read about your disappointment and would urge you please to try normal lunch or dinner if you are looking for a more creative offering. Our Sunday lunch remains fairly traditional and I am very pleased to say our lounges were all refurbished just before Christmas as part of the ongoing updates we are putting in More

I cannot comment on the hotel side of this establishment but I fail to understand why people love this restaurant. My experience was so disappointing. Service and food were pretentious and staff training was poor. For instance, a waiter served my main course, noticed my side plate was still on the table and reached in front of me to remove...

We went for Sunday lunch in the restaurant and we really enjoyed it. The food and service were both excellent and it really felt special. The setting and decor topped off the experience beautifully.

Description
A wonderful historic country retreat in the wilds of Dartmoor National Park, Mill End Restaurant is set within the boutique hotel of the same name. Dating back to the 15th century, Mill End is a beautifully preserved and sympathetically modernised building, at one time home to Sir Frank Whittle, inventor of the jet engine. The classic-modern d��cor of the restaurant itself provides a light dining space during the day, become more intimate in the evening as the sun goes down and subdued lighting takes over. The shimmering silverware and polished glasses on pressed white tablecloths make the restaurant seem upmarket and romantic, as does ��� of course ��� the superb menu. Wayne Pearson oversees the kitchen here at Mill End, working with his team to prepare and serve freshly prepared high end cuisine making excellent use of the abundant local produce including fish from the Devon coast, locally grown vegetables and beef and game from the surrounding countryside. From relaxed breakfasts to hearty lunches, indulgent afternoon teas and refined dinners Mill End offers a stunning dining experience.
