Had a great stay here. Good value and owner was a lovely chap who made me feel at home and welcome. The food was excellent, dinner and breakfast. The steak was beautiful and stornaway black pudding was sublime. I was so pleased I had some more with my full Scottish breakfast. Would definitely come here again and wholly recommend it... More

Lunch was great and food amazing especially the sweet but it took 1 hour for our 1st course to arrive. Manager said only 5 tables at a time were served as he did not like to put pressure on kitchen staff, but food was great when it arrived.

My partner and myself decided to try this place after seeing good reviews and although there was a varied range of meals on the menu for meat eaters there was only one vegetarian option. This one option was not for me so I asked the owner if they did veggie burgers. He replied no but I could have the one... More

This is a perfect place for almost every occasion. The food is amazing and reasonably priced. Staff is alway friendly and helpful. The restaurant itself is well kept as is the grounds.

Called in for a late lunch yesterday - on a cold, wintry day. We chose from a great value lunch specials list. My wood-pigeon/black pudding starter was outstanding- as was the following chicken curry. My wife's pea and ham soup was equally good. Fine real ale to accompany great food - and a chance to chat to the cheerful chef.... More

Have driven past this establishment on numerous occassions but have never tried it. Well I did today and boy was I impressed. Has a nice warm, friendly feel - even on a Monday lunchtime in November - and the staff are friendly, helpful and very attentive. The lunch menu and specials board give plenty of choice. I went for the... More

I dropped into the Old Mill Inn at Brodie today for lunch with my daughter and granddaughter. The atmosphere was relaxing and friendly. The meal was very good and the desert (sticky toffee pudding) was amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be returning.

Very nice pub and restaurant. The service and the food are both very good. The burgers are very good and if possible you should visit the Old Mill when they have the steak day.

We ate here with friends who live nearby and have visited several times. We all opted to miss the starters to save room for their excellent desserts. All our main courses were good -3 of the group had one of the specials, a sticky chilli chicken with rice. I had a very tender lamb dish with vegetables. The desserts were... More
