Millers Bar & Restaurant
Low Mill Road
Diners will be received either in the ‘Millers’ Bar (the entrance to which can be found down the driveway leading to the rear of the Brewers Pride within the traditional oak shelter) or directly from within the pub itself. The ‘Millers’ Bar is where you can find a great selection of continental beers (both on draught and by the bottle) and delicious wines;  this is a really cosy bar, perfect for perusing our fine dining a la carte menu prior to ordering and moving up into the beautifully appointed restaurant; situated entirely on the first floor. Alternatively, for those diners who choose to have a pre-dinner drink in the lively atmosphere of our main bar and lounge (where our full range of real ales is available), we will be more than happy to take your order from there and then escort you to your table when it is ready.With plenty of room for over 40 diners, the ‘Millers’ Restaurant has a traditional ‘feel’ with exposed oak roof trusses and stonework, hand-fired bricks and oak sash windows combined with more contemporary furniture, table dressing and lighting making it simply one of the finest places to eat out locally. Part of the restaurant has been converted from the original pub building and has a more ‘private’ feel thereby making it ideal for a larger group celebrating around a single table or couples wanting a more intimate candlelit evening on one of our special ‘themed’ events. Keeping it warm and comfortable will be a traditional cast iron stove set in the original fireplace – what could be better!With the emphasis on fine food, great atmosphere, exemplary service and comfortable surroundings we hope that ‘Millers’ Restaurant will be your first choice when dining out – you’ll certainly receive a very, very warm welcome. We very much hope to see you soon.For reservations, please contact our Restaurant Manager; Vicky Armytage on 01924 262077.‘Millers’ will initially be open on Friday and Saturday evenings only with reservations from 6pm until 10pm and Sunday Lunches 12.30pm until 4.30pm. It will also be available for private functions throughout the week and for celebrations over the weekend by special arrangement.
