"...the team at the Mill were fantastic. The evening was very memorable and the food outstanding... the chef, Paul was incredible. Please pass on our congratulations to him, Nick who was sat next to me said that the lobster course would be the hardest from a banqueting point of view. I sat back and watched him take the first taste, taking his time to take in the flavours, then he went on to clear the plate adding a little for the jug on the side. To follow that with beef that was cooked to perfection was a real plus.
The staff were very efficient, friendly and timings even better than predicted. Yes these guys are very hard to please, well done all... you did it."

Main courses continued to impress, I had the duck breast served with fondant potato, braised red cabbage and butternut squash puree while he went with rare breed pork with roast potatoes, celeriac and apple puree, spinach, trompettes and peas. The duck was pretty much perfect, but the star here was the pork, where the flavours jumped off the plate and grabbed your attention.

Mains included grilled hake with prawn risotto, and roast cod with colcannon. We were there to try the roast beef! I had two fine medium rare tranches on top of a divine mash, whilst Brendan had a cracking tranch of collar of bacon, with horseradish, creamed potatoes, and sauerkraut. Both were absolutely delicious.
A beautifully presented rectangular chunk of plum cake with pistachio icecream ensued along with a pretty rondelle of vanilla cheesecake and a blackberry sorbet. Both delicious.
