Review on The Crabmill
A real gem to look at, the Crabmill can trace its roots back more than three centuries, and it still bears the marks of history with its tiny leaded windows, weathered half-timbered exterior, crooked beams and flagstone floors. Once a cider mill, it has made the move from local boozer to upmarket gastro-destination.
Inside, all is light, eye-catching and contemporary, with several different dining areas done out in distinctive colours and styles ranging from pistachio-green to deep red; there's also a split-level lounge with comfy sofas and a robust traditional bar, plus stylish decking outside.
The kitchen takes its work seriously and serves up a wide range of eclectic flavours, from sharing plates and mezze to starters of tandoori whitebait, crispy duck salad and Shropshire Blue, leek and potato tart. Mains are equally varied, ranging from salmon fishcakes with chive hollandaise and fries or fillets of sea bass with spiced potatoes to game pie and braised shoulder of beef bourguignon. Premium beers and a well-spread wine list keep the drinkers happy.
