    Sadly, I got to the restaurant to be told that they do not do non-residents and had no record of my booking. Your website booking system and hotels response were very poor.

    We were given a voucher for Christmas for afternoon tea at Mill End which we had to leave until August due to Covid-19 restrictions. After a lovely walk to Fingle Bridge along the River Teign, we returned to Mill End for our tea. It was lovely, sandwiches, cream tea and assorted cakes and a lovely pot of tea (with proper tea leaves and a strainer). A beautiful building both from outside and inside. The staff were very friendly and helpful and coped well with the COVID-19 restrictions of gloves etc. We had a very enjoyable afternoon and think we will do it again in the not too distant future as it is a lovely part of the world and Mill End makes a fantastic place to end a lovely walk.

    Warm welcome and a lovely warm and inviting ambience about the place on our arrival. The menu was very tempting with quite a few dishes we liked the sound of. We chose monkfish and pork as mains with crab and scallops for starters. Overall, our meal was delicious with wonderful flavours and we loved the care taken to present our food in such a beautiful way. Everything was cooked to perfection. The waiting staff were lovely and friendly, no pretentiousness, just cheerful, helpful and fun, particularly the middle-aged gentleman with the south-east accent (sorry, didn't catch his name). We will certainly return and are thinking of booking a room and dinner for our wedding anniversary in a few months.

    I was given a voucher for my birthday and was thrilled to be going to mill end for a tea. I was very disappointed we were shown in to a lounge and the first thing that greeted us was two large and wet dogs with their owners ,we sat on a large sofa and waited for 30 minutes for our tea. We wern't told what was in the sandwiches which had obviously been prepared in advance and kept in the fridge or what the cakes were . The scones were the best part of the tea they had full marks. No one came to enquire if everything was ok and we had to go looking for someone to ask for more hot water (only small tea pot) and for a drink at the end. I am a local born in Devon and I am afraid it was not up to standard of others in the area. I dont usually comment but you have asked I wouldn't go again or recommend to friends.
