Went there with friends this weekend and food was delicious. The service is excellent and owner, Susan and staff are lovely. Well worth a visit but book well in advance if possible during high season.

Been coming here for years. The food has always been lovely - locally sourced Donegal seafood and lamb a speciality. But it is the ambience and dining experience that makes this place special. Old fashioned quiet style and grace. Good service and elegant decor combine to make this a special night out. Highly recommended - but book weeks in advance... More

Visiting the Mill is a lovely experience from the moment you walk through the door. The food, service, views & grounds are stunning. This is a lovely special occasions treat and we will look forward to stopping by again in June.

Fantastic food in a fantastic setting. Excellent service and yes, it is slightly expensive but you are paying for first class food in a beautiful setting with ambience.

Having read good reviews I decided to treat a friend to a birthday meal. The restaurant itself exudes a warm cottage style ambiance - unfortunately the food was a real disappointment. My starter of crispy pork belly and scallops was not crispy and both the meat and the scallops were over-cooked. My main course of shoulder lamb and vension was... More

We visited the mill last night for birthday dinner. From the minute you walk in the place has a lovely ambience. It's comfortable and cosy with open fire and the staff are very welcoming. Every bit of the food was delicious, from the canopies on arrival, to the truffles at the end. I went for the pork belly and scallops... More
