In an historic building right on the banks of the river Frome, The Mill in Rode is a stunning rural bar, restaurant and piece of local heritage. Hearty international dishes and real ales are served, with a large outdoor deck overlooking the water.

The Mill menu boasts a fantastic selection of dishes, ranging from British pub classics like local sausages, creamed mash and onion gravy, to speciality Carolina dry-rub pork ribs. The restaurant uses a chargrill to prepare a range of skewers, steaks and burgers, which come with wine suggestions.

Desserts at The Mill Rode include favourites like warm double chocolate brownie with Marshfield Farm ice cream, and Granny Smith apple and butterscotch crumble. A fine selection of ales comes courtesy of the Butcombe Brewery.

Offering an idyllic setting which is also available for riverside weddings, The Mill Somerset is just 17 minutes' drive from Avoncliff Rail Station.

    We had quite a nice lunch for four although we didn't think the minute steaks were a little bit mean and not up to their usual standard!

    The service was ok but not great,they got my wife's drink order wrong twice.
    The food was nice but not a very varied menu.

    We were seated in a quieter area away from several larger parties. This was very much appreciated. All four of us enjoyed the food. Pork belly was cooked to perfection. The sirloin beef was again cooked well and extremely tender and tasty. Main courses iro £14/15 which does not include a lot of veg. Extra types of veg are priced around £3.50 per dish. To be honest none of us ordered extra veg as the main meal proved sufficient for our appetites. I suspect that whilst £3.50 seems expensive the quantity provided for that price would serve more than 1 person. Overall we all felt the meal was worth the price. Service was attentive and efficient.

    Beautiful restaurant and we enjoyed our food. Unfortunately our experience was spoilt by two things. Firstly we were very cold as there was little or no heating. Secondly we had to wait over an hour after ordering our food before we were served.

    Very slow service and not really made to feel welcome.

    Lovely Sunday Lunch. Great service and much improved pub all round. Internal door and decor, much nicer loos and friendly attentive staff.

    This was everything you could possibly want from a restaurant. Beautiful location. Lovely interiors. Attentive, but relaxed and not in your face service. And exquisite food. Seriously, really, really good food.
