Food at the Watermill


Something for everyone, The Watermill is a Pub & Restaurant with multiple personalities, popular with both locals and visitors for it’s warm welcome, good food, ales and wine.

Customers can choose to dine either in the charming pub area that features the original mill workings, or upstairs in the mill loft restaurant, an atmospheric space combining contemporary décor and furnishings with the old world architecture and open beamed roof. In fine weather dining in the delightful garden is extremely popular.

A full menu, including light bites and a children’s menu is available at both lunchtimes and evenings. There is also a Daily Specials board. Both are available in both the pub and restaurant. On Sundays we offer a choice of traditional roasts. Wherever possible ingredients are sourced from the finest local suppliers.

After three consecutive years of Gold Awards The Watermill has been awarded the prestigious Platinum Award for Food Safety and Healthy Eating.
