Review on Mill House Hotel
Set in ten acres of beautiful lawned gardens complete with its own trout stream (the Cornwell Brook), this thoughtfully extended miller's cottage can trace its origins back to the Domesday Book – although the present building dates from around 1770.
The stone floor in reception is an original, and the bar occupies what was the old grinding room; other features such as an antique grandfather clock and mill register add to the atmosphere of the place. French windows open from the lounge onto the terrace, which is perfect for light lunches, afternoon teas and suppers under the 100-year-old walnut tree.
Formal meals are served in the Mill Brook Room, where the fixed-price menus promise high-quality food based on impeccable ingredients including Cotswold lamb, fish from Brixham and organic vegetables from the Vale of Evesham. Typical dishes might include seared scallops and roast pavé of smoked salmon on cucumber crab and mint risotto and fillet of beef on the bone with flat mushroom, confit of plum tomatoes and pommes frites.
Desserts are highly attractive creations like prune and Armagnac soufflé with crème brûlée and ice cream, but it would be sinful to ignore the gems on the splendid Anglo-French cheeseboard. The 120-bin international wine list is peppered with big names, but prices are eminently affordable.
