Millar Conder Green - A Modern History

Father and son team, Paul & Paul E. Hurst have been responsible for the daily running of the Mill for the past few years. With its proximity to Lancaster they realised the potential of the canal-side setting and took ownership of the Mill in April 2011. At this time the Mill was an uninspiring pub with its feet firmly in the 1980's.

Their vision was to to update the bar, restaurant and accommodation with a modern 'country house' feel. The decor was carefully considered by husband and wife team Paul and Mandy Hurst and gets positive compliments from our customers on a daily basis. The bedrooms were modernised and re-decorted to offer a clean, minimal and well presented look and to take advantage of the original wooden beams and iron-works found in some rooms. 

The Hurst's are forward thinking and in 2015 we are excited to offer diners the option to reserve a table from the their smartphone or tablet.
