I love a good spa day so when my friend Ellen suggested a spa day AND lunch on our day off, I jumped at the chance. Our dear friend Sherry joined us and we started out early in the morning taking our time through the backroads chatting and catching up while looking at the lush scenery and enjoying the morning.
When I was in my corporate position, we never though of the Millcroft of a luxurious get away when we were planning team building or business planning trips. It was a little tired and there were much nicer places to explore. I was pleasantly surprised to find The Millcroft had gone through quite a few changes and I am happy to say it is a lovely destination for a girls spa day or a romantic get away but there was a little problem….
I was told that there is a celebrated chef at the Millcroft so I was more than excited to try their cuisine. We sat on a lovely outdoor patio over looking the pond. The fish in the pond kept us quite amused as they frolicked all afternoon jumping out of the water and swimming by us. The waitress was lovely and very attentive and the wine selection was more that sufficient. The food however was extremely lacking in my opinion.
Ellen and I love Lobster, so when we saw Lobster dog and frites we were happy girls. We asked the waitress to explain the dog and she said people love it and even said it was outstanding! Of course, we ordered it. Sadly, the lobster came in a thickly battered log and delivered no flavour at all. I’m not even sure there was much of it in there. The “frites” were just frozen fries and very disappointing. Sherry didn’t say much about her lunch (although none of us did at the time because we were too busy chatting) but she did leave half of it unfinished .
So, Millcroft spa-terrific! Millcroft lunch, not so much.
