Great menu's for snacks or more filling dishes. Lovely shopping area on several floors that will keep you entertained for hours. Plenty of room for free parking and great to sit outside on a sunny day with a delicious cream tea and see the peacocks roaming freely near you.

Went there for an impromptu dinner. The welcome was warm and friendly. Lovely meal had the rump steak cooked to perfection. Hubby had haddock and chips and he's fussy but cleared his plate and said it was delicious.

A lovely mill on the Exe river. you can see the mill wheel turning inside the shop with gears and millstones. There is a nice park for children with a ridable minitrain close by. There is arched bridge over the Exe river that is quite beautiful and 400 years old.

Dropped in to escape the M5 traffic. The food was beautiful; bags of flavour and very well presented. It was a very busy bank holiday but they managed to fit us in and serve us in a very acceptable time.

without a doubt the best food we tried whilst staying in bickleigh slightly back off the main road bickleigh mill with a home cooked menu with food cooked in the oven and not a deep fat fryer, my wife and i stayed at the cot a beautiful location dripping in history but was only let down by the menu,we tried the trout but found it cold and unloved so much potential wasted. liked shopping in tiverton quaint little town see you soon devon.

This is a little gem within Bickleigh that my partner & I wanted to try & when we did we were blown away with the quality of the food. When we have been on our own or with family/friend's, we've found that the best food is in the evenings. There is a specials menu with a variety of foods on offer each day. The shop is really lovely too, just watch out for the delicious looking chocolates. We're yet to try any of their chocolate, but our temptations with cave soon I'm sure.

We had a delicious lunch here, and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The shop is an Aladdin's cave of goodies - well worth a visit! Unlike another reviewer we found the coffee to be lovely, with the beans freshly ground for my latte.
