The restaurant maintains a lot of the original mill features, great to see, add to atmosphere - you will need to duck if you are tall though! Food is excellent; great to see heritage vegetables being used - purple carrots and yellow beetroot. Lots of locally grown veg cooked perfectly. Vegetarian option of nut roast was lovely. Service great.

Having seen the sign a number of times when travelling the A38, we finally decided to try this venue, on an "out of season" Sunday. We were just in time for lunch, and ordered their traditional roast beef. The ambience here is perfect. The building has impressive, authentic mill wheels on each side of the room, and the proprietors are... More

The Heskyn Mill, Restaurant. Tideford. Cornwall. Tucked away and out of sight - this delightful old mill restaurant is well worth making the effort in seeking it out. A hidden gem. Set in a secluded location in the heart of the beautiful Cornish countryside yet surprisingly close to the A38 near Tideford and within easy reach of Liskeard, Looe, Saltash... More

It is difficult to get a really good restaurant meal in Cornwall. Many places just offer pub grub. Heskyn Mill is run by John and Anne who have a real interest in food and wine. Their food is freshly sourced and it is worth taking John's recommendation on the wine. Heskyn Mill is a genuine double water mill and, although... More

We arrived at Heskyn Mill by chance on our way to Plymouth on a Friday lunch time. We followed the signs and were pleasently suprised. The Mill is absolutely beautiful with lots of attention to detail, like fresh flowers on the table and candle lit. The waiter and the owner were very pleasent and could not fault the service but...

Although the restaurant was fairly empty, the food was very good and the service friendly and efficient. The newish owners try to use local ingredients as much as possible which means that the dishes are fresh and tasty.

Although we visited on a quiet evening the whole menu was available and we had a delicious meal that was good value for money. We would definitely return to try other dishes from the menu.

This is a good place for lunch or dinner. Tucked away down a lane very close to the A38 at Tideford and near the St Germans junction. The food and service is very good and the surroundings full of charector

On the fringe of the village of Tideford near Saltash in South East Cornwall, this three hundred year old grain mill has for decades been converted to a successful country restaurant. Recently under new ownership it has been extensively and sympathetically refurbished.
