We have had a busy Bank holiday at The Ramblers Rest. Despite the disappointing weather people still turned out to enjoy the celebrations. Traditional afternoon tea proved popular, fresh sandwiches filled with local homecooked Roast Ham and Coronation Chicken and a wide selection of homemade cakes and pastries, our Cream and Strawberry Scones were a definite favourite, along with ‘Victoria Sandwich Cake’ and Sticky Orange Drizzle Cake.
We had a busy week in the accommodation with a variation of guests. Cyclists doing the Way of the Roses, walkers doing The Wolds Way long distance walk and then a lovely family here for the weekend to celebrate their daughters wedding at nearby Huggate church.
Looking forward to a busy Summer season. Lets hope the weather improves and everyone can enjoy the picturesque wolds walks, cycle routes and scenic drives in our area without getting wet! Then, come and indulge in a light lunch or afternoon tea sampling a Ramblers”‘ Rest Platter with our delicious Home cooked Ham and Selection of Cheeses, Chargrilled Black Pudding with Melted Stilton and Braised Red Cabbage or Fresh Salmon Pate garnished with Tiger Prawns and Smoked Salmon with a Sweet Chilli dressing. Finishing off with Bramble and Apple Pie with crumbly Shortcrust Pastry or a Fresh Cream Meringue……
Look forward to welcoming you and please feel free to call Angela on 01759 305220 for further info on The TeaRoom and Restaurant or Zoe on 01759 303292 for Accommodation.
At last, building works have been completed, our new facilities are up and running. Although we have introduced changes we very much hope that everyone who visited us this weekend liked and enjoyed our new Ramblers’ Rest. With both Open Range fires blazing away, one in the original Tea Room and the other in the extended Restaurant it was difficult to choose which room to dine in, and we felt happy that the added space made things more comfortable for a very busy weekend. It was great to see all our familiar faces back again be it on foot, cycling or by car.
We had a successful evening with the Restaurant, a private family birthday celebration, and had our first B&B booking on Sunday evening, a welcome stop for two people doing the Minster Way long distance walk.
Angela, Jeremy, Zoe and Martyn look forward to welcoming you to The Tea Room and Licensed Restaurant and perhaps you may consider a stay over in our luxury accommodation?
For further details please feel free to contact Angela 01759/305220 for restaurant and tea room information or Zoe 01759/303292 to find out more about our 4 B&B rooms.
The weather at Millington has been absolutely fantastic this weekend, great cycling and walking weather. Its amazing how the sun brings everyone out. Our delicious Brymor icecream has definitely been one of the top sellers, surprise, surprise, was panicking I would run out.
The Tea room will be open over this bank holiday, so we look forward to welcoming you, be it cycling, walking or driving. Please feel free to enquire about walks or rides if you are unfamiliar to the area.
From 4th June The Tea Room will be open from 11am Fridays and Mondays in addition to the usual weekends, and don’t forget our Private Dining Room for those get togethers with family, friends or work colleagues, where a minimum of 10 people guarantee you have the room to yourselves for the evening. Open Mon- Sat evenings.
Building work is progressing really well. Plumbing and electrical works are all going in and the last bit of roofing is being done this week. The plasterer is due to start this week also.
We are just getting an old range from the farm installed in the restaurant area, which we are chuffed to bits with, it was removed a week or so ago from the farm. Julian has renovated and even rebuilt the oven so that it will actually work. I havn’t cancelled my order for my oven in the new kitchen yet though!
We are confident that our new restaurant area and accomodation should be up and running for October. Any enquiries please feel free to contact Angela 01759/305220 and we will keep you updated.
At last, the weather is improving. The Wolds landscape is slowly recovering frome the frosts and a green hue is emerging once more. The village will soon be awash with daffodils and Millington Wood 1/2 a mile from the Ramblers’ Rest in Millington village will soon be well worth the visit when it becomes carpeted with acenites and snowdrops and other spring flowers.
Building work for the new Restaurant and Accomodation is coming on really well. All the levels and walls to rooms on the ground floor are completed and the stud walls on the first floor showing the layout of the Bedrooms are almost all in place. Plumbers and electicians will be starting after Easter so we are busy making all important decisions re Lighting etc…
With the weather improving it is nice to see more walkers and cyclists visiting the Village and The Tea Room again, and we look forward to welcoming you over the Easter period. If you are unfamiliar with The Wolds and the Millington area please do feel free to enquire with us at The Tea Room regarding Walks, we will be happy to reccommend ‘Our Favourites!’ The Tea Room and Restaurant will be open Good Friday through to Easter Monday from 11AM serving Light Lunches. Enjoy a hearty bowl of warming Homemade Soup, a selection of Tasty Sandwiches and various Specials or spoil yourself from a selection of Fresh Homemade Cakes including Fresh Cream Scones and Meringues, Raspberry Bakewell Tart, Traditional Buttered Fruit Bread and lots more!!
We wish all our Customers a Happy Easter!
Everything is going to plan with our extension at Millington, East Yorkshire.
Pauls team have been grafting really hard throughout all this bitter Winter weather. Most of the internal walls have been knocked down where necessary and rebuilt so we are able to see the layout of everything now. I have a wonderful kitchen space that I cannot wait to fill with fantastic equipment. Those of you who have seen the existing Tea Room kitchen will appreciate my excitement. Outside window and door openings are almost all in place giving fantastic views over the Yorkshire Wolds.
We had fun removing The Old Mill from what will be the new entrance area. It was originally built in situ so had to be taken to bits similarily,we found the man for the job! Quite sad really, alot of memories of my brother, Martyn, not too long ago and Dad before him, milling corn for our livestock.
Martyn has spent some time over the weekend sanding the beams in one of the bedrooms. Hardwork and very time consuming, but it will be well worth it!!
