Arrived on a Tuesday morning to find the shop and mill closed. The sails had been blown off in a storm some time ago and had not yet been replaced. The entire area around the mill was a complete mess as if no one has bothered to keep things maintained in quite some time.

Not very popular. Average selection of cakes. There isn't much parking and I don't suppose more than 20 people would fit in, so not much atmosphere. Staff are friendly enough and the miller always happy to chat. Wouldn't be my first choice to have tea and cake, but the artisan bread is great.

Had a wonderful lunch today at the tea rooms. A beautifully served ploughmans with fresh bread and butter. Pleasantly served. Grandson had ham sandwiches served with raw carrots and tomatoes. We bought two lovely fresh loaves to take home.

We visited this tea room on a wet and dull day. We had homemade soup with home milled and home baked bread and croutons. The facilities are very basic, but the soup was delicious and hot. There were plenty of delicious looking cakes and locally sourced homemade ice cream with very interesting flavours!! The staff were very friendly and even the Miller came to chat with us! Unfortunately, the sails were being refurbished and the car park is waiting to be renewed, but a very relaxed experience!

Well this is a hard one to write about... very different. Sat outside on a sunny day with pot of tea for two and two slices of cake. Far to much butter cream. It's fine if you like buttercream...but not my favourite... the funny thing was they came and ask if we was enjoying our snack. Well I could not say anything bad...,I just giggled to myself.
But nice little place and staff are nice and chatty.
Homemade bread is fabulous Thanks 👍🏼👍🏼🌺👍🏼👍🏼

I visit here on a regular basis, fresh bread and excellent service attentive and friendly, for me as good as the food, and worth the return alone. but for the food don't miss out on the ploughman's platter and the speciality teas.

Been here several times in the past and always thought it to be a good destination for a ride out or to take visiting friends for a snack.

Took some visiting American friends a few days ago and what a disappointment. Sails have come of the Mill and that can't be helped as I understand it was due to a storm.

BUT... grounds were messy - untidy and uninviting. Tables were still cluttered with debris from previous customers. Staff - well the one person serving - was bordering on rude.

What a shame.

I called in at the mill, walking up form Kirton in Lindsey on a blustery day, a walk of maybe about a mile each way. The mill has recently lost its sails in gales, and awaits new ones, so wasn't working under wind power, but they have an electric motor which temporarily deputises for the sails,and permits milling to continue.
Admission is only £2, and when I paid the door to the mill was unlocked and I was left to wander up and down in my own time.
Typical of a working mill, occupying several floors it is suitably dusty, and crammed with cogs, pulleys and various scales, sacks and bits of machinery. I loved it. The sense of antiquity and the smell of flour was just wonderful. I spent about an hour clambering about and nobody else came in.
The cafe and tea room is equally charming,. The young lady working there was just so brilliantly friendly and helpful and the snacks, many made with the flour produced at the mill were wholesome and appetising The stilton and celery sandwich on wholemeal was a meal in itself.
I loved this visit. I don't expect it rates highly on a ,map of major tourist attractions, but if you like quaint, unusual and friendly, then this is the place.
