Robert Owen, the 19th-century visionary behind New Lanark mill, wanted to make the lives of its people happy. This spirit lives on the New Lanark Mill Hotel's revamped Mill One Restaurant. Progress stalled for a time, like in New Lanark itself before its 1990s restoration, but now Mill One is back on track, driving forward, and busy, thanks to new manager John Stirrat’s vision of what people want. The refurbished mill room, with views and sounds of the River Clyde below, serves an enticing local, seasonal menu, with dishes such as smoked ham hock roulade, twice baked Lanark Blue soufflé, and blackcurrant cranachan trifle. No one will be disappointed by their solid performance, and dishes look impressive and special, with fashionable smears of sauce, and slates for plates. You sense they're playing it safe, yet also, in a few dishes, daring to push at the edges. Flavours maybe have a wee way to go yet from ‘what people expect’ to ‘wow’, but New Lanark is about nothing if not progress, and through Stirrat, his kitchen, and kind staff, you feel Owen’s unstoppable drive for improvement. Mill One is on the way up.
