The Millstone Inn
Millstone Lane, Barnack, Stamford, PE9 3ET
Set in the popular village of Barnack on the doorstep of the Hills & Holes National Nature Reserve, The Millstone is something of a hidden gem. If you haven’t been for a few years but still speak of it fondly, why not revisit and see how much it has been updated and improved? Oliver and Amie Dawkins took over The Millstone in 2013; since then the pub has had a complete refurbishment to go along with its exemplary new menu. Inside you will find a number of different seating areas for formal and informal meals, and outside there’s a hidden courtyard that’s a real suntrap during the warmer months. On entering The Millstone, guests are greeted by the sight of a well-stocked bar. A plethora of spirits are available, including some excellent gins, as well as a selection of fine wine, lager, cider and ale. There’s even guest ale to add greater variety to your choice. Food is served seven days a week and the menu is divided into mouth-watering sections of nibbles, starters, main courses and pub classics. From the duck egg served atop asparagus and Parma ham to the famous Millstone burger and the shortcrust beef and ale pie, these tempting delights are all great hits with the regulars. On Wednesdays, The Millstone also invites diners to enjoy two 8oz rump steaks and a bottle of wine as part of their popular steak night, and on Mondays, there is a curry club with a help-yourself curry bar. If you enjoy freshly prepared food that’s been cooked to order, The Millstone will certainly have something to whet your appetite. Desserts are not to be missed either, and are made freshly daily on the premises. Throughout the year, the team also hosts a variety of events including charity dinners, karaoke evenings and mini beer festivals. For updates, menus and more, be sure to visit the website.
