Here are some of the reviews that have been written about us in the papers.
"Indisputably good value in a countryside setting. ...places that offer great food with the minimum of fancy, paid-for frills are my idea of perfection these days. And Otterton Mill is certainly one of them....We watched the romantic old mill waterwheel,...browsed the art and food shops and gazed at the free-range chickens...Then after lunch we went for a good walk...along the River Otter. In all, we were there for hours, enjoying a proper day out in the beautiful countryside.....What a lovely meal - and a great family day out, too."
Western Morning News, 5th March 2011
"The place to hang near Budleigh Salterton, Otterton Mill is a gallery, food shop, cafe and music club extraordinaire, perched on the river."

"My favourite 'secret' places to eat include the grand colonial house of Orestone Manor, which is hidden in the woods near Torquay, the impossible-to-find Nobody Inn at Doddiscombsleigh near Exeter, and the little cafe at Otterton Mill in the trees alongside the River Otter near Budleigh Salterton."
Simon Heptinstall, The Cream of Devon, The Daily Mail, 28 May, 2008
"This venue is in an old working mill by the River Otter in a stunning valley in Devon. The mill houses a bakery, a shop selling local produce, a restaurant and a gallery. But most importantly, it's a classy roots venue, featuring folk, blues, jazz, country and Americana usually on Thursday nights."
The Guardian, 23rd April 2008
"A 1,000-year-old working watermill with a bakery, restaurant and shop on site. It hand-makes 20 types of bread and 30 kinds of cake, mills its own flour and uses organic ingredients whenever possible. Current hot picks: the apple cake made with local cider and the rich fruit cake made with the local O'Hanlon port stout."
The Guardian, 3rd November 2007
"Devon is famous for its cream teas and this place serves the finest ones in the land. Organic scones, made in an ancient mill surounded by Devonish countryside which is a perfect excuse to walk off the cream."
