The Mill House Hotel Kingham

We have had a long old, much needed break over Christmas and so Millie and Meg HQ has been very quiet! So we are back with full force with lots of lovely plans throughout Jan and Feb and say hello to 2015 with a Sunday lunch blog post that happened in ...2014! Happy New Year.
Well, walking out of a dank rainy Sunday afternoon, into The Mill House Hotel just before Christmas was as cosy as cosy gets! Lit fireplaces, big comfy arm chairs, candles, bunches of lilies and ofcourse a large Gin & Tonic, were there to greet you with a big old hug.  

Sometimes walking into a hotel as a day guest you feel a little out of place but the family owners have retained a local Cotswold pub feel to the bar area,bmaking you feel like a local as soon as you walk through the door. The bar was renovated in 2013, complete with exposed Cotswold Stone walls, burgundy coloured decor to create that warm feeling and a large bar area with a good selection of wine and local ales. You can eat in the bar area for a more relaxed and informal feel to your meal, but as we were out with James's Mum for the afternoon she treated us to Sunday lunch in the fine dining restaurant, The Mill Brook. 

We really enjoyed our lunch, with the traditions of fine dining mainly lying in the service and environment rather than the food itself, although what we had was very scrummy. I went for a platter of continental meats to begin with, for the main event a classic Sunday Roast Beef which was spot on (I hate it when good restauaunts get such a simple dish so wrong!) and then a creme brûlée for pudding. Feeling sleepy after 3 glasses if red with my meal, I opted for a large coffee. I was pleasantly suprised when it arrived with delicious teeny petit fores. If you have read our blog before or follow us on Instagram you will notice my beady eye for Steelite Pottery and once again I found it here in the Cotswolds at The Mill House. It makes coffee taste all the more delicious. 

We headed home after a lovely long afternoon at this beautiful converted flour Mill to a cosy fire of our own and a long nap on the sofa to sleep off the food. Bliss!
