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.

    Great food. Shame it took the staff so long to serve. We asked for just 5 more minutes to decided but a waitress didn't return to our table for another 20 minutes.

    The food was very enjoyable, especially the jus with my very tender steak. Lunch prices are reasonable too.

    Both myself and other half had roast belly pork, was excellent and very carefully presented but also a good sized portion considering the presentation, usually a tower of something is or the "for the less robust appetite" nature, the apple sauce was home made and the gravy was great, rich and flavoursome, the pork belly was excellent, a really good meal. Pudding which we just had room for was bread/butter pudding and for myself a quite splendid chocolate and peanut butter torte. Considering the quality of food was very good value all told. Is quite local to us tho' we have several exceptionally good pubs nearby but will certainly frequent the Mill.

    A bit disappointing. The pork belly and the burger were both nice, but the 'greens' accompanying the fish was just shredded cabbage, and the apple crumble was cold (although they did fix that). Service was a little slow at times even though the restaurant wasn't very busy, and the waitress was unable to offer an alternative to Malibu and coke when she informed us that there was no Malibu available. Also, the toilets were rather unclean.

    Good reception, swift service.
    Actual meal chosen was fish pie. We felt the portion was small and the accompanying veg was small and only kale. What we got was of good quality though.

    we all loved our food and the received attentive but not pushy service
