The Millstone at Mellor is quite simply a food lover’s paradise. It is managed by Chef Patron Anson Bolton, who has worked tirelessly over the past 10 years to achieve 2 AA rosettes, which he has held consecutively since his arrival.
At the Millstone we source only the freshest; in season produce from trusted local and regional suppliers to really inspire our menus. By showcasing the ingredients on offer within the stunning Ribble Valley, you can enjoy a true taste of what makes this beautiful region so special.
Stay with us for a few days or longer and you’ll be treated to the warmest of welcomes in relaxed, yet elegant surroundings. You can make your selection from an inspired array of delicious Lancashire dishes, which although simple in their creation, they’re perfectly executed to satisfy even the most discerning guests. Or for something extra special, choose from 5 Best in Season dishes, which demonstrate Chef, Anson Bolton’s expertise. You could even treat yourself to afternoon tea with mouth watering homemade biscuits and cakes baked freshly every day.
What’s more, if you’re looking for somewhere to host a special occasion, you can celebrate in our private dining room which seats up to 20 people.
Of course, it goes without saying that as part of the Thwaites family there is an immense amount of wine, brewing and culinary expertise on offer at The Millstone. And this is something we take pride in sharing with our guests. So we’d like to invite you to come along to one of our Special Suppers where Chef Anson will guide you through the menu and our guest Sommelier for the evening will select the perfect wines to complement each of the dishes. For further details of when you can join us for a Special Supper, please refer to the What’s On section of our website.
