Welcome to the Mill Café

cafe-long

The Mill Café is on the ground floor of the Mill and incorporates the riverside terrace with beautiful views along the river. Check the black board next to the counter which changes daily and lists our ‘specials’.  Polite dogs are very welcome, and when the sun is shining there is nowhere better than the terrace outside to relax and enjoy the view!

SOUP OF THE DAY

Always vegetarian. Check the board for the Soup of the Day - there is sometimes a topping such as  cheese, meat or pesto for the more adventurous - no extra charge!  We do 2 sizes - if you need something really filling go for the large but you can also opt for the smaller size. Both options with bread and butter
Small £2.00 / Large £3.50

EVERYDAY SAVOURY MUFFINS

Savoury muffins are our tasty alternative to the traditional scone.  Our popular cheese muffin changes from day to day but you will find mature cheddar, brie and olives, cheddar and apples … check the daily board. We warm it up in the oven before serving!

At the Mill Café we try to source our ingredients from local producers. We do the daily board depending on what we have in stock to avoid food waste as much as possible, and we always enjoy trying out different things.  You will not find chips or marshmallows but good wholesome food and always something for everyone!
