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 live in the village and have been to the Mill many times. We even had our wedding reception there in 2009! We often stop off for a drink while on a dog walk. This was our first visit since the new management took over and we were really impressed. We loved the decor and the atmosphere, the staff were friendly and the food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Our two girls aged 11 and 4 were made to feel really welcome. The sticky toffee pudding was particularly lovely, my daughter was reluctant to let us try it as she wanted it all for herself!
    All in all we had a lovely experience, we can't fault it and would give it 10 out of 10.

    Warm welcome and the service was good. The restaurant was busy and expected a large group shortly after our arrival, but the waitress was patient with us even though we were gossiping. We didn't feel rushed, at any time. The food was lovely and presentation excellent.

    Service good. Steak good but mushroom very poor, bit of watercress only, was disappointing.
    Eton mess was strange.

    Three couples went from The House and two had very good experiences. They said food was very good and service was friendly. The third couple ate on both nights and on both nights the bill was incorrect (in their favour) and on one night the white wine came from the cellar and was not chilled. All three couples said they would return!
