This restaurant is outstanding in every way, from the friendly attention by the wait staff to the wonderful old mill building bursting with rural antiques, to the truly delicious food. It's out in the country, took us over half an hour to get there, but we will be back many times I'm sure.

Excellent restaurant. The service was first class. We were welcomed warmly and seated immediately even though we were early. The ceaser salad was the best I have ever had and the cauliflower soup was amazing.
Can’t wait to go to Aberfoyl Mill again.

It was our first time visiting the aberfoyle mill as I read good reviews and was recommended by friends. We were celebrating our anniversary and thought it would be nice to try something new. I can’t say I would rush back. Our waiter was not attentive at all. He didn’t check to see if we wanted our drinks topped up and had to find another waiter at the end of a meal to ask for glasses of water. My husband and I both started with the Caesar salad and have to say it was the best part of our meal. Good size and delicious. My husband had the Strip loin steak. Nice size but he ask for it to be cooked medium/well and was served more medium/rare. I had the prime rib and it was very disappointing. I got such I terrible cut of meat. It was thin and mostly fat. Lots of other people around me also were served prime rib and there’s looked amazing so I’m not sure why I was the unlucky guest! Our waiter never even came back to ask if evething was ok because I probably would have said something about the quality of the prime rib. We both had dessert and it came with a candle as we were celebratating which was a pleasant gesture. All in all I might go back for the salad at lunch but wouldn’t recommend or rush back based on service and quality of food for the price.

The food was very good. The caesar salad was outstanding. Our waitress raved about the potato croquettes so several of us asked if we could have them with our meal and we were accommodated. Several people had the lamb which they said was excellent. I had the prime rib, which was very tender and flavourful. However, it could have been served warmer. Overall, the food was very good and it is outstanding value.

Excellent food and service.
Unfortunately some parents bring very young children to this beautiful restaurant and don't watch them or correct their behaviours.
We had 2 small children across from us on a weeknight . We had 8:00 pm RSVP and were surprised to find kids at this time of night.
They were tired windy and wandered around their table
Spoiled what could have been a romantic dinner for 2
Parents be responsible for your children and aware of what they are doing!!

I was late by 1/2 hour, I thought our reservation was for 6, not 5:30. They promptly told me at the door. Then rushed us to the table . They mentioned " its not good to let the best table sit empty". WOW sorry. We were told to eat fast because the next reservation was at 7:00. So we felt rushed. The waiter had no clue we were told to eat fast, if they did not mean it or said it in jest, it kind of ruined the meal. We felt rushed.

Always a favourite place for me to attend. In the early 1900's my father, as a young boy, hassled the miller to the point where the miller picked up my father, grabbed him by the heels, and held him upside down over the mill grinding stone that was grinding the grain into flour. My father told this story dozens of times as the years passed and I grew up. Great memory.

The food and service were both excellent.
I had the prime rib from a local butcher.
My wife had the pan fried arctic char.
The atmosphere is great still contains equipment from when this was an active mill
Will be returning, maybe for the Mystery Dinner Theatre.

Very nice interior. The decorations give a nice old-school mill vibe. We had a reservation for two and were seated in a raised level overlooking the larger tables. Private while also having a homey atmosphere. The food was excellent and the service was top notch. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and I will be returning sooner than later!
