    Great beer, great food and a great local pub with a lovely and cosy living room-esq ambience. However, what really sets this pub above any other in the area is the proper Yorkshire lasses behind the bar. Friendly and very outgoing personalities that is synonymous with the City itself. Sit back and relax and have a laugh or two with the staff as you knock back a good old pint or three.

  • Margaret Brown

    Good service tonight but pub quiet. Paid top price for a bottle of NZ Sauvignon Blanc but it was not well chilled. Excuse was "we were busy last night" but no discount offered although we ate 2 courses, but that was the only way to get value for money on the chosen meals!

  • Eve Kent

    Excellent atmosphere, excellent food.

    Great, fantastic home made food at its very best.

    Carvery recommended.

    Having heard that the Millhouses had reopened under new management, and having been impressed by their spiel on Streetlife, we went down for Sunday Lunch.

    I have to say that the food was delicious, with large portions of meat (always at least three options), all melt-in-your-mouth tender, and beautifully cooked. The choice [of meat], and several vegetables, were served (onto a hot plate) very hot, so that they keep their heat as you eat your meal, by design. All the trimmings were available, whatever your choice. Plus the the Yorkshire Puds are home-made, and also hot.

    The main thing is that the price is lower than we have ever paid for this quality and quantity of food.

    An earlier-in-the-week visit just for a drink with a couple of family members prompted me to book Sunday lunch for my Mum and me.

    The staff were very friendly and the food was quite good with one exception. The roast potatoes could have been used as ammunition for a cannon. Three separate tables complained about them. The pub wasn't busy but the service was slow. We cancelled the pudding as we had long since drunk the coffee, which arrived promptly. We paid and left.

    It's doubtful if we will visit again.

    I went there last week with my partner and we had chicken and bacon club sandwiches with chips... they were incredible! Nice portion size, good quality food, well presented and the chips were the tastiest I've eaten in a pub/restaurant in a while! And, to back up my post - everyone around us was eating. One guy in particular had a burger that was so stacked up the top of the bun wouldn't stay on... the guy couldn't finish it and instead of taking the plate and throwing it away (like most places would do) the landlady wrapped it up and brought it back for him so he could take it home (that included the chips as well!).

    Portion size is always a killer because the reality of it is that we all eat different amounts - what I think is a generous portion might not fill up someone else. Personally I'm not convinced an element of over-exaggeration hasn't been used by at least one of these 'reviews' in order to aid their argument... but (as I'm sure someone will be happy to point out) I wasn't there, so I'll apologise now if I'm wrong? For what it's worth though - I ended up giving some of mine away to my partner there was that much (but then I guess I don't eat that much).

    The staff were attentive, polite and came over quickly to check the food was OK or if we needed anything. I appreciate that careless mistakes can happen - we all have a bad day at the office at times, that's life unfortunately - and no real reason to think negatively of this pub. Yes they spend time on certain tables talking to other customers, but that's what makes their service so great - if they didn't talk at all we'd all be sat here bitching them off for being ignorant instead. Fact of the matter is that, overall, this practice was not detrimental to their service to the rest of the customers, and the place was literally rammed - so they must be doing something right!

    These pages are great - but by no means accurate! People write on them for a whole heap of reasons. Everyone was born with the ability of perception so should go down and check the place out for themselves. From what I see, the landlady is doing a fantastic job at building the place up. The food is great, the customer service is the best I've seen in a pub since I've moved to Sheffield and the building itself is well presented and clean. (and before I get accused of working there, being related or some other pointless start of an argument - I'm none of the above, just a person with my own opinion - whether you choose to listen or disregard that opinion is completely up to you).

    Having eaten here twice now, I've found the staff to be top notch, being polite, friendly & prompt with their service. On both occasions, the food has been sent out in a timely manner & been delicious.

    The first time I had the burger, which was really good & wasn't a small portion by any means & as good as you get anywhere. The second time I had the ribeye steak, again, cooked to my liking & very tasty.

    The food prices are more than reasonable & the drinks are standard pub prices. In a nutshell, this place serves good honest food & a fair price...

    I've heard the Sunday lunches are good so that'll be my next visit.

    We visited it for a wedding anniversary evening meal (I have to say this was our only visit).

    On this occasion we ordered the special, belly pork with mash and vegetables. Our plate consisted largely of a huge slab of very fatty and tough pork. The mash, which was supposed to be apple mash I think, was little more than a couple of dessert spoonfuls, and then the veg. was 4 stick beans and a few peas. This one dish cost us a tenner, which we thought a bit steep considering belly pork is the cheapest cut.

    The starter we had was bread dipped in olive oil, which was OK but needn't have been so oily.

    We didn't get round to the sweets.

    The service: well, we know it was Friday night and it got very busy, but the waitress still had plenty of time to stand chatting at the next table and ignoring us. (Oh, and when I ordered a half pint, I got a full pint. No big deal, but a bit careless.)

    And one important point on the layout: it surely isn't a good idea to have the toilet entrance immediately by the restaurant table, so that there is a constant stream of people passing through from the bar area.

    So all in all we won't be going again. Sorry.

    I have always lived in the Millhouses, Dore area and was sad to see the Millhouses pub shut. Recently when it reopened, and we had seen a good review in the local press, decided to try it out.

    Yesterday after a long day out we decided to call for a quick meal. We had not booked, that was not a problem, it was before 6PM and a few people were in having drinks. We admired the new tasteful surroundings and were looking forward to our meal.

    We chose ordinary food as we were due to go out again at night. My meal, of haddock, chips and mushy peas (£11.95) was thoroughly disappointing. The small fish portion size was more what I would expect from a starter course, and the plentiful chips seemed that they had been cooked previously and reheated in a deep fat fryer as they were oozing in fat. The mushy peas were cold.

    My husband's burger (£10.95) was fine and his larger chips were fresh, though few in number.

    After a while we were able to attract the waitress' attention and she said that she was going to come to ask if everything was OK. She did reheat the peas. We were very hungry as we had not had anything all day and did eat the food.

    After paying for the bill, £27 including drinks, we left without anyone asking if we had enjoyed our food.

    A thoroughly disappointing experience.

    The food was delish. Pity the weekly offer isn't on any more otherwise I'd visit more often in the day. The burgers are huge and totally yummy!
