It was the long awaited day of reopening of pubs and restaurants since Captain Covid had put his depopulation agenda into practice.
We had been meaning to come to the Little Mill for ages, then the world stopped so we couldn't- well gutted. So today we went with four friends as part of a 10 mile walk.
We were greeted with a warm welcome at the door and were informed of the new protocols surrounding how to be in a pub as we enter this new and uncertain dawn of mankind. Our table was ready early which was awesome as we were all soaked to the skin from hiking in the rain. I wish I'd taken the name of the young guy serving us because he was absolutely fantastic from the word go. He was very mindful of what people may or may not be comfortable with in this current time and made a sterling effort to wait on a table of six with minimal contact, whilst maintaining a superb mix of friendliness, professional courtesy, and getting involved in the bants! This guy is truly an asset to the Little Mill and I hope the owners recognise how good he is.
The food.....BANGARANG!!! The salt & pepper chicken burger was like biting into a new and delightful world of flavour! Also the baked blueberry cheesecake was like eating the feeling of a great sleep in a summer orchard. One member of our group had the haddock fish cake with poached egg which looked great, and she said it was great so it must have been great. Two others we were with asked whether the chicken in the salt and pepper chicken burger could be substituted for halloumi.....what an inspired idea! The chef did this for them no problem at all, the feedback was so good that apparently it will feature on the menu, so make sure you look out for that little gem when you go.
Overall it was lovely to be there, very relaxed and friendly environment, great food, great service, and we cannot wait to go back.
