Located in the heart of Cobourg Ontario, The Mill Restaurant & Pub and Cobourg Creek Golf Course offer our guests a unique dining and golfing experience.

We enjoyed a very nice lunch on the patio overlooking the grounds. The pepper soup was excellent; we had 2 servings of fish and chips - the fish was over cooked and the fries could have been better. But we will come back another day. David

Another wonderful meal with exceptional service on the terrace patio at The Mill Restaurant. We travelled from Toronto to enjoy a relaxing and casual lunch on a sunny summer day. The service is always great and the servers and all staff are very attentive to their guests. There's a casual, friendly atmosphere and you can always count on high quality meals and larger portions. Reservations are recommended. The restaurant adheres to all COVID19 protocols and you feel safe at all times.

I booked upper patio. Got a call a couple of hours before to say they had a wedding and only the pub patio was available. Wedding was very loud.

We ate on the patio which was clean and attractive. It was covered with hard canopies which kept the rain off. There were also heaters if needed. The surrounding trees and gardens are very lovely. Food and service were excellent.

We started with the crab cakes and then we each had the steak frites which was excellent. The steaks were tender, juicy and flavourful. Our server was Chloe and we couldn’t have asked for anyone better. Chloe was cheerful, welcoming, attentive without being overbearing. Enjoyed our anniversary dinner and would definitely return to dine again.

I like the atmosphere very calm. Server was very helpful. I had salmon, but would like if you add some kind of a sauce as a side.

We enjoyed the visit & we will be back.

We were seated on the upper deck and had a beautiful view over the gardens and golf course and the pond with the gorgeous little fountain!! Food , service and ambiance was amazing and we will be back many more times! It even rained and nothing could keep the servers and management from keeping their happy attitude. What a Gem! I just loved that place!

Convenient location to meet my friend from Belleville. Easy to get to, welcoming, decent food, good drinks and unrushed. Great view of the course from the upper patio.

Due to COVID-19, the menu was quite limited. Our party of 4 had crab cakes to share, the daily tacos, fish and chips, chicken club (2).
Great server.

The meal was great; the service friendly, prompt, but not overbearing, and the location on the bottom level was perfect. Everyone at the restaurant followed PPE protocol.

My only suggestion would be to take a table away from the fan/cooling system in the far corner.

Thanks for providing my and my cousin with a great place to meet and have a meal. We'll be back!

This outdoor patio is a lovely spot for a dinner! The food was great, but I was disappointed that the menu on their website was not currently being served (but totally understandable due to COVID-19 restrictions on capacity etc. :)

We are outside because of it was still Stage 2. It poured rain the whole time. The umbrella over our table was not large enough to keep us both dry.
We always have a great meal here. Pricey, but good.

This is the second time we've brought out of town friends here for lunch (we wouldn't normally dine out then) and they've all been over the moon at the ambience and food. Thanks for making Cobourg look even better, everyone! Oh, and special shout out to William Street Brewery for their Cream Cycle Ale. Too delicious!!!!!
