One of the most sought after restaurants for a Sunday brunch or a dinner celebration, Ancaster Mill epitomizes the spirit of great hospitality.

Situated beside a creek, with a large dining room built out overlooking a waterfall, Ancaster Mill is in demand year-round for weddings, family or corporate events and celebrations. Restored to keep its authentic character intact, this is a place where ambience fuses with fine food and great service. Our harvest focused cuisine allows guests to experience the spectacular local, seasonal ingredients from our Earth to Table farm and Craft Cut butcher.

The staff provided excellent, friendly service. The kitchen adjusted the food ingredients to meet our dietary requirements. Overall the meal was good tasting and it arrived hot at our table. All this against a picturesque waterfall viewed from where we were seated. To sum up; it was a great place to celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary.

We had a great patio table for breakfast but food was limited being the last day and everyone was checking out on Victoria Day Monday. Service was great and loved the location & beautiful grounds with so many water fountains.

We were a table of 9. Our server was quick, efficient and friendly. The food was good not stellar but regular fare for the restaurant. The restaurant was relatively quiet and the evening was pleasant. Will go again.

Absolutely fantastic! My husband and I took our 20 year old son and his girlfriend there for dinner! They adjusted our reservation to accommodate a fourth person. The food was so good and I’m picky! The 80’s ambiance was totally on point, and done so very tastefully! I have already recommended to someone! Thanks! We will return!👏
