We had a lovely Sunday lunch at Furzeleigh Mill. The size of the roast dinner was just right as we wanted to make room for the delicious trifle to follow. Although short-staffed we did not have to wait overly long. Due to the beautiful weather, it would have been nice to sit in the garden to enjoy a drink/coffee after our meal but all the tables were reserved. If there had been a time of arrival on the table we may have had a chance to sit down and be gone by the time the table was needed.

Great food in a lovely setting. Furzeleigh Mill restaurant is a small and intimate setting in a beautifully converted mill. There is a small menu, but the food was beautifully prepared and cooked, with nice attention to detail. There's obviously a great chef in the kitchen who cares about the food. Fine dining without ostentation. The restaurant has a small and reasonably priced wine list, alongside a huge selection of Gins. Service was a a little slow, but it's a small establishment, and staff were friendly and responsive.

Exceptional quality of food, the chef has created a extremely well balanced menu showing of the quality of the produce used. The food here equaled some of the Michelin starred restaurants I have dined in. The waiting on staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the menu. With the quality of the food and service the limited car parking space maybe a issue. I would certainly dine here again.

A great transformation for this ancient pub/restaurant. Second time here in the last 2 months and would recommend to anyone. (Thai fishcakes are relatively small - but definitely hot!) Guitarist playing live in the background was a definite plus to the overall ambience.

Really enjoyable evening conducted by the amiable Tessa. The staff were under pressure but remained joyful throughout the evening, and the food was really excellent. Overall a successful experience, we will book again. Things I'd improve if you'd welcome a critique - 1. A lot of thought and expense has gone into the decor of the dining room, the chairs are very, very comfortable and I'm a sucker for a squishy carpet, but the wine glasses are well below par (too cheap bistro), check out the ones they use in Coljan in Ashburton. You could also probably stand two or three more wines at the high end of the wine list. 2. Can't stand paper napkins, the quality of your food deserves better than that, although it may be a Covid thing. 3. When the charming waiting staff deliver an unexpected surprise in the form of an amuse bouche, they really need to say what it is, if only for allergy purposes. The only thing I'm allergic to is an empty wine glass! 4. The clearing of empty aperitif glasses and bottles was very slow (I had to ask when the table started filling up), but they were under pressure for staff numbers (who isn't in the hospitality industry at the moment) and we warned of this at the start which was greatly appreciated. Anyway, overall a cracking evening from people who care about you!

Overall even in lockdown the restaurant service and food was fabulous. I had the stone bass which was delicious, staff were very attentive and very welcoming. Covid secure excellent. Would definitely dine there again.
