“We went to the Help Out Mill for my 60th Birthday celebration as a party of 11. From the minute we arrived, we had a fantastic time.
A very warm, friendly welcome awaited us. We were shown into the snug where we enjoyed drinks by the cosy log fire. Then upstairs to the restaurant where our table was beautifully laid and a lovely personal touch of 60 confetti. Nothing is too much trouble here.”

“Just been to the mill for valentines night, the food was delicious and the sweet trolley was to die don’t just get one, you can have as many as you want. Fay the host was lovely, from the moment you walk through the door you are made to feel welcome”

Myself and two daughters came for afternoon tea on 17/03/2018 to the cosy Help Out Mill. The location and surroundings are beautiful. We were met by the lovely owner Fay and was made to feel very welcome. We were shown upstairs to our table which was laid out beautifully in front of a roaring log fire. We had a selection of beautiful sandwiches, cakes and scones jam and cream, massive pot of tea and coffee also refills of hot drinks later in the day. The price for the afternoon tea was very reasonable and nothing was too much trouble”


About the Mill

The Mill itself was first thought to have been built in the early 1300’s with the current buildings built around the 1800’s.  The Mill is situated on the River Sence and believed to have been the last water-powered corn mill to have operated commercially in Leicestershire.
