Down By The River

This is the Old Mill Inn which is a restaurant, conference centre, hotel and spa located on the Humber River just down a bit from the guy fishing in the river that I showed you a week ago. It has been the site of various mills over the years but the last one burned in 1881 and the Old Mill Tea Garden opened here in 1914. There have been various additions since and the structure was given heritage protection a few years ago. I've never been inside but it is said to be quite nice.

Often catch the subway there. Been inside, it's quite nice and old fashioned, true to its age.

This place looks very nice. It has a sort of rustic elegance.

I like the look of the building, but like you, I've never stopped there.

Looks like an interesting place. You need to check out their restaurant to see if the food is as good as the building looks.

Oooh it does look nice! I like that little turret (or whatever it is you call it) and the clock tower. And the lamp post too!

This is my kind of place! I'm guessing restaurant patrons have a nice view of the river, too!

Looks like it is nicely maintained.

It's in a lovely setting too, It's hard to believe it's part of a big city.
