Chef’s Message

Twice-Cooked-Belly-Pork As Head Chef at Mill End, it will be my great pleasure to welcome you  to our restaurant – whether you are staying with us or just visiting for  dinner, a spot of lunch, or a traditional Devon Cream Tea.

Our passion lies in simplicity – great seasonal ingredients from local  suppliers, cooked with care and presented with flair.

With a background in fine dining, my aim is to achieve balanced and  appealing dishes, without pretentiousness.

We aim to home-produce as much as possible – for the best quality, and to reduce “food miles”.  Our delicious cakes, traditional Devon scones, breads, soups, sauces and accompaniments are produced in our own kitchens – and we use herbs from our gardens when in season.  Even our bottled water is produced in-house, using a sophisticated seven-stage filtration and purification system.

Our cheese board offers a tempting choice of West Country cheeses (and we have some excellent Ports and dessert wines to round off your meal).

We offer vegetarian options of course, and it is our pleasure to cater for any special dietary requirements – just let us know, and we will tailor our dishes accordingly.

We have a carefully-chosen wine list to complement your meal. Our list includes fine wines from around the world, as well as something more local from Devon’s Sharpham Vineyard on the beautiful River Dart.

Breakfast at Mill End is always well received, with our continental breakfast buffet and a comprehensive selection of hot breakfast dishes cooked to order (including the “Full English” of course) to start your day in the best possible way.

You may not see us during your visit, but please be assured that my team and I will be working hard behind the scenes to ensure that your dining experience with us is memorable and enjoyable.  We look forward to welcoming you.
