When somewhere has menu prices like 11½ instead of £11.50 you know it's up itself. When it names itself after a particularly repellent breed of dog you know the case is terminal. The Millwright used to be OK, nothing special but traditional enough to have a bit of atmosphere. The recent refurbishment has produced a cold (heating off in January?), dark, dank main bar with tatty furniture, tin chairs, the inevitable posing tables and tragic pastel grey paint on every paintable surface. To be fair, the rooms to the side and rear remain similar to before and, if they were heated, would retain some comfort. Perhaps the money ran out.

Anyway, the Home Ales Robin Hood wasn't too bad and served with a smile, and there's plenty of outdoor seating front and back. Given a nice day, all is not lost.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Millwright Arms

Attractive old pub, set back from the main road a bit, with plenty of wooden benches out front. Partly opened-out to leave a three-part main bar with the entrance lobby on one side, a central counter and more of a dining area at the far end. Also has another room with the pool table and a smaller counter at the back. Four real ales on handpump: Doom Bar, two from St Austell - Tribute and Proper Job - and Oakham JHB (£3.50).
