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.

    Disappointed with the foodespicable on this occasion. Scallops were overcooked and dish certainly not worth the price. Burgers a bit tasteless. Since our previous visits the food standard seems to have declined.

    Stylish and welcoming to families: our newish granddaughter was made very welcome, and rewarded the restaurant with her formidable charm, which made for a most enjoyable meal for all of us.
    Food was excellent and the service friendly and understanding.

    We enjoyed a very nice lunch.
    However, although it said on the end of the menu that at lunchtime prices were £9.50 for one course 12.50 for 2 courses and 15.00 for three we were told when we queried the bill this did not apply at the weekend. There was no indication, anywhere on the menu to tell customers this was the case. This is very poor and does not comply with trading standards. We feel a bit cheated as we may not have made the choices we did if we had known this.

    Beautiful setting.
    Food was lovely.
    Friendly, helpful staff.

    Will definitely go back

    Expensive for the portion size (barely any veg and two small roast pots) disappointing Roast. We were a party of twelve and there were some differences on who got what! Service was poor.
