When it comes to dining at The Mill, we allow the surrounding countryside to set the precedent. The peaceful water meadows and gently rolling hills beyond are captured by our award-winning take on the classic best-of-British menu, with produce sourced straight from Suffolk’s farmers and suppliers. Our seasonal dishes are paired with a handpicked list of new and old world wines, while the bar bristles with an enticing selection of local ales from our friends at Nethergate brewery just a short walk from the hotel. Soak up the rustic ambience of the restaurant’s working waterwheel, or while away an evening under the heated canopy of the bar’s terrace to watch the sun sink below the green horizon.
An escape to the country isn’t complete without a plate of buttery, just-baked scones and lashings of clotted cream. And here at The Mill, it goes beautifully with a delectable selection of home-baked cakes, finger sandwiches and the finest loose-leaf teas. While your eyes scan the scenic surroundings, why not treat your taste buds, too?
Our head chef leads a talented team unwavering in its dedication to the culinary arts, delivering an imaginative modern British menu befitting the beauty of The Mill’s waterside setting. Whether a leisurely lunch with a glass or two, a romantic dinner à deux or a family celebration, this is a local favourite with quite a following – and an AA Rosette for culinary excellence.
Sometimes, dressing for dinner can be a little too much effort. We’re with you. That’s why we offer 24-hour room service: first-rate food delivered to your door whenever the fancy takes you.
Drink in the view with your favourite tipple. Inside, cosy up by the log burner, or take a table on the terrace when the sun shines, perfect for lunch with friends or colleagues with the bar’s extensive bistro menu. An elect range of wines, ales and spirits, and a view that silences were made for, makes this a rural treasure trove.
There are few places we’d rather be on a sunny afternoon. Breathe the fresh sea air, listen to the cry of the gulls and graze on a tempting selection of light bites as you take in the view.
