The Miller of Mansfield
High Street, Goring-on-Thames, RG8 9AW
Make yourself at home at The Miller of Mansfield, an inn respectful of its 18th-century coaching inn roots but boasting a 21st-century twist. Sleep in one of 13 individually and boldly designed bedrooms after enjoying award-winning fine food in an informal setting – this is fine food but not fine dining. Pair your meal with local real ale, Miller-devised cocktails, or a glass from the hand-picked wine list. At The Miller all appetites are catered for – pop in for a pint, have nibbles at the bar, dine from the à la carte menu, or savour a wine flight alongside a five-course dinner. There are numerous menus to choose from, and children can also be catered for. Nick, Mary and the staff at The Miller strive to accommodate all in a friendly, welcoming environment. Nick believes that showcasing the quality of raw produce is the most important thing. He painstakingly selects his suppliers and ingredients, choosing the best he can find. Sample his cooking and savour ingredient balance, flavour combinations and techniques that you can’t recreate at home. Mary’s wine list has been personally tasted and selected, so each bottle has a story behind it. The list has been fully revamped this year to include more top-end vintages, and a diverse array of wine sourced from English to Argentine and Greek vineyards. You’ll also find a greater selection of wine available by the glass to suit each course of your meal. Rooms at The Miller are boldly bespoke in their design and supremely comfortable thanks to the high-quality mattresses provided. You’ll find a blend of feature architecture with characterful and antique pieces alongside modern touches – there’s always a little amuse-bouche from the kitchen awaiting you on arrival. If you’re into accolades, The Miller has two AA rosettes and four stars. It was the readers’ Restaurant of the Year in The Good Food Guide 2016 and Muddy Stilettos’ Best Destination Pub for 2016. The Times recently heralded it one of 30 best summer pubs at which to eat, drink and stay. Most prestigiously, it was shortlisted for Best Newcomer 2016 at industry awards The Cateys.
