We went here for the first time last week, as I had been given a voucher for my birthday. The staff were very welcoming and efficient and the food was delicious. Other reviewers have mentioned that you have to write your order on a pad and give it to a member of the waiting staff - this was not a... More

Arrived about 8.30 on a Friday evening & were warmly greeted. We were shown almost immediately to a table for 4 of us although we were given the option of sitting & having a drink first. Restaurant was busy but the service was great. As a vegetarian I was offered a vegi menu although I was able to choose from... More

What a beautiful location, made to feel very welcome. We travelled with our dog, who was totally accepted given water and allowed entry into the bar. Lovely grounds to walk about, kind and accommodating staff. Only criticism is in communal areas their is a lot of grime on the walls and due a re-paint. Must say lovely stay

The 3 main problems with Milsoms Kesgrave are 1) no bookings taken, 2) having to scribble down menu choice in pencil and take it to waiting staff 3) average food quality at top restaurant prices. I visited on 28/10/2016 and for 3 course meal for two with wine and a drink in bar afterwards the bill was a few pence... More

I reviewed this establishment in 2015 - nothing much has changed. I get the impression they are striving for something they may not achieve. Menu is varied and food is prepared in an open kitchen - tasty and we'll presented. It's the manner of service - a style of self service (self written orders) which takes something away from the...

Have been to Milsoms several times over the past couple of years - a fantastic setting in beautiful grounds. The menu was varied with plenty to choose from. Drinks were over priced (paying for the setting perhaps?), food was really good - upto the standards expected and prompt in arrival. However service was poor - average perhaps - but not... More

What a lovely setting for afternoon drinks. We visited whilst walking in the area and really enjoyed relaxing in the spacious lounge with our drinks. The carpets in the lounge were in need of hoovering, lots of bits about. Great view of the grounds in front of the hotel. Service was good, very friendly. Would definitely visit again.

You can't book and afternoon tea is served only from 3pm. Both of us work full time so we had to go on a Saturday to celebrate a special occasion. We arrived at 3.10pm, and from the outside the building looks wonderful but the lounge was heaving with women, the bar was also full of afternoon tea people so the... More
