While a very hot night, it was pleasant in the Millhouse with a bit of outside breeze. Food is great and staff have good wine knowledge. We trusted a wine recommendation and it was a gorgeous local Rose. Desserts are Devine!

We dinned at the Millbrook for one evening. The atmosphere is cool and relaxing. The service polite and helpful.
The menu covered all tastes with an excellent choice of wines.
So what’s the down side? Well if you are into French artful cooking and watching your weight then this is the place for you. Art and beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I have to say the art form in this establishment is first class. Which leaves the taste, in our case it was largely missing from my steak, and from my wife’s fish. The price is also inflated.
Now I like a good place to eat and fine dinning and I do not mind paying for it however, it’s difficult if you fail at it and a big question is asked of your cooking skill when you pay $120 for one course and a glass of wine.
If you want an experience take a punt but remember your going to break the bank with an artful experience

Dear Thomas S,

Thank you for your review. One of the things we always make sure is that our pricing is competitive and I can assure you that in The Millhouse there is no combination of a main course and a glass of wine that would equate to $120. I am pleased that you found the menu and wine list excellent and have passed on your comments regarding flavor to our kitchen team.

We hope to welcome you back again in the future.

Kind regards,

Matt McDonald

This restaurant is in the original flour mill building of the old wheat farm. We had two dinners here with a group. We were limited in what we were able to order (choice of one or two starters and one of two entrees and one of two desserts). I ordered beef one night and lamb the other night and the dishes were very good. The starters were very good and the desserts were excellent. I would return.

Great meal, picturesque setting. Had the starters - worth having as chef’s specialties - followed by mains (I had snapper, husband had salmon - these were more traditional). Worth a visit, and the Millbrook resort is stunning.
