Excellent meal in a lovely setting. Our waiter was great. It was very busy and the service was a little on the slow side and there were some dishes not available. Would definitely go back.

Vegetarian recipes include exotic flavours like the butternut squash with coconut, lentil and chickpea dahl.

On the dessert menu at The New Mill Taunton, diners can choose decadent treats like peanut butter, chocolate and toffee cheesecake, and there is a full wine list and great range of beers and cask ales.

    The service was prompt and courteous and the food was hot. The only criticism was that the Sweet Potato Chips were seriously overdone, some black. We have found at home that this root cooks very quickly, whether boiled or roasted. The same must apply to frying - even more so, it seems. The recent warning about the dangers of acrylamides in burnt toast and roast potatoes made us wonder about how healthy this item was.

    Overall service was terrible. The waiter (Andre) was fantastic and made a bad situation acceptable. The kitchen and bar need to sort tgemselves out

    Regular customer - only criticism is the length if time to receive food after ordering. Appreciate all food is freshly prepared but there always seems to be a lack of staff in the kitchens

    Comfortable pub to sons an evening. Food was good, reasonable choice and well presented. Only gripe for us was service was very slow, seemed understaffed although when we were served the staff were extremely polite and helpful

    Another disappointment. On arrival we were told that 3 of the main course options were no longer available and we would probably have chosen one of them for each of us. What we did choose was good although your staff forgot to deliver our sweets and had to be prompted. Furthermore, some ten minutes after our arrival another couple on an adjacent table, having been given the same regretful pre-order information as ourselves, were then advised that the restaurant had run out of Merlot wine! To add insult to injury we noticed as we left that a chef's special was available but we had not been informed of this. Much improvement needed I' afraid.

    Service very slow, ordering drinks to receiving took about 15-20min to arrive twice!! Food great but not enough veg, would have rather helped myself from dishes on table rather than just the cabbage in a dish. Had to ask for more gravy when stated on menu endless. Pudding was great but again service poor.

    It was my Dads birthday and there was a party of 7 of us booked in at 12.30 as this was the only time we could get in . Mum and Dad had eat here before and said it was the best Sunday roast they had eaten . we order our drinks with the bar maid and was given our menu which we placed our starters . The starters was lovely. But we were all very disappointed with our mains which was not cooked . The cabbage was raw the carrots were hard as nails the roast potatoes looked like boil potatoes . The pigs in blankets looked as if they weren't cooked . Not wanting to make a fuss and we all had a joke about how raw the veg was and moved on to the puddings . 3 crème brulé which I though was supposed to crack on top but didn't and my mothers was still frozen . We were told on two occasion that you were short staffed but our bill came to £200 in all .
