Restaurant description

Housed in a Victorian mill with a rustic feel and quintessentially British decor, Rode Mill brings you classic pub favourites in a uniquely picturesque location. Enjoy al fresco dining in the beautiful outdoor area by the River Frome, sampling one of the restaurant’s many ales.

The Mill Bar & Restaurant’s relaxing atmosphere is heightened by its riverside location, making it the ideal option for a social occasion or serene break from everyday life. Enjoy dishes such as duck fillet with wilted spinach and confit of carrots or home smoked salmon fillet with red pepper cream and salted cucumber ratatouille. The vegetarian and vegan menu provides offerings such as sharing mezze and crisp, stuffed courgette flowers with butternut squash, and the children’s menu welcomes even the smallest guests.

Sample The Mill’s extensive list of ales, and enjoy some quiet time in the restaurant’s country-inspired indoor area or green outdoor patio. The tartan armchairs and sturdy, rustic wooden tables create a home-away-from-home feeling.

Rode Mill is situated on the River Frome, a 5-minute walk or 1-minute drive from Rode, Somerset.

    Venue lovely, will defo re visit in the day/summer. Staff very friendly, food lovely and prices great for portion sizes. Mentioned they were shot staffed, but service was still great and we didn't wait long. Only negative, due to COVID and doors having to be open, it was cold. But understood this could not be helped. Overall great experience, very happy.

    This was our first visit to The Watermill at Rode and we really enjoyed our evening. We were greeted on arrival with a very warm welcome from the waitress and shown to our table straight away. The choices on the menu are good and the meals we ordered were all delicious. My husband said his Tikka Masala was excellent. It was quiet on a weds evening, but the ambience was still lovely. Our visit to the Watermill was to celebrate my little boy's birthday, and the venue took note of my booking message and presented him with a brownie topped with a birthday candle at the end of the meal, which was lovely. (The honeycomb cheesecake was also very tasty.) Overall, the food was delicious, the staff attentive and ambience and location great. We will return soon!

    Lovely restaurant with speedy service and friendly staff, the man who I believe was the owner came to speak to us a few times and check how our food was which was nice. The Halloumi for starter was amazing and the Steak and Peppercorn sauce was brilliant. Thanks
