Worston Lane, GREAT BRIDGEFORD, ST18 9QA
Documents can trace a mill on this site from 1279. The building that now occupies this rural spot beside the River Sow dates from 1814, when it was in daily use as a corn mill. Visitors can still see the original wheel and gearing that powered the mill stone. Drop in for meals that range from ciabatta or baguette sandwiches, jacket potatoes and grills to home-made steak and ale pie, wild mushroom carbonara and roasted field mushrooms with Welsh rarebit, all washed down with a pint of Greene King IPA perhaps? The pretty gardens, with duck pond, make a great place for alfresco eating in the warmer months.
