Food is at the heart of the Miller experience. Nick’s food ethos is two fold: eat fine food without formality and think of food as more than just fuel. Savour each dish; enjoy and explore each flavour. Nick and his highly skilled team select seasonal ingredients from British suppliers to craft dishes that show off the produce to excite your eyes and woo your palate. Whether dining in the bar, restaurant or courtyard, tuck into a menu that offers nibbles alongside a la carte dishes, at lunch and at dinner. Alternatively, take Nick’s signature tasting menu for a deep dive into his culinary creativity.
Foodies Favourite Award – in March 2021, The Miller was awarded the inaugural Foodies Favourite accolade from Estrella’s Top 50 Gastropubs. The award was voted for by British diners nationwide rather than critics and judges, and for that we are truly humbled. It’s you we feed and serve every day, and it’s your opinions and praise that we listen to most, so thank you!
The Good Food Guide Readers’ Restaurant of the Year – this is an award you can only win once and we achieved it early in our time at The Miller. It has kept us focused and ensured a steady stream of repeat visitors, those who had voted for us on this occasion and others who have found us as a result of the accolade.
Finest quality ingredients and giving the ultimate respect to the raw product. Reflected in the simple elegance of his food and evolving menu.
