Popped in with a friend for a snack lunch and we both had the broccoli soup which was home made and very tasty. Nice and thick but not greasy and you could taste the veg. the granary bread with it was also very good. Some of the main meals we saw coming out also looked tasty with generous portions.

Always had great food here and can take people there knowing that it will always be good. Service is always great. Its not what you call a cosy restaurant but the food makes up for it.

The food offered here is fresh and appetising. It's really wide ranging - risotto, fish & chips, pano is etc. It's set in a beautiful old mill and sells local art work and furniture. I will definitely return.

The place has great shopping with distinctive good quality products and nicknacks, housed within a converted water mill together with a restaurant and bistro. Food is above average, mostly traditional British cuisines. This restaurant we rate very good as a package (alongside the shopping... More

Bickley Mill is situated in a lovely area just off the Tiverton road and there is plenty of parking. We visited as a family group of 5 adults and two young children. The restaurant has a number of out door tables and a large indoor area. Being holiday time the limited number of high chairs were being used but we... More

This place is fairly local to us and a friend and I went for lunch - we hadn't booked and were lucky to get a table. The staff were great and very helpful. The food was the best I have had locally for a long time. I had the risotto and my friend had the stir fry - both excellent.... More

We were seated in a lovely room alone,it turned out to be a very hot day so one of the staff kindly provided us a fan. On the day the food that we ordered was wonderful, tasty,... More
