Just a stone's throw from Epsom's renowned Lido Theatre is a sun-drenched eatery charming its way with locals and the likes.

Dubbed the neighbourhood newbie, it would seem the Flour Mill has actually been around the block a couple more times than most. What was once an integral part of the community as a flour factory, now has been given a well deserved new lease of life. The space itself has been given a complete lift, now composed of pastel pinks, exposed brick and soft wood finishes.

Residing is a contemporary space with no sense of copy paste. Such a notion has extended straight from the fit-out to the menu Flour Mill boasts. Focused on positioning themselves apart from the rest, guests can expect to open up a menu rid of tiresome brunch suspects. 

Here, brunch is best celebrated through their steak and egg breakfast dish. Plated is a golden potato rosti laden with strips of medium rare sirloin, a house-made béarnaise sauce, topped with a poached egg and pink salad. Made on the backbone of fresh and local produce, it really comes as no surprise that this dish is already proving popular. 

For the gym fanatics and health aware, Flour Mill hasn't forgotten about you either. Introducing the Protein Salad. Constructed with champagne ham and succulent strips of turkey, the Protein Salad makes for the ideal post-workout feed. With a pink hummus, avocado and roasted beetroot combination, it's a dish that sits well with non gym-goers also. 

Finally, city-goers can rejoice in quality grab and go offerings, made convenient from Flour Mill's sleek glass cabinet. Packed with sweet treats, baked bread and savoury sandwiches from the likes of Daniel Cruden, Head Baker of Amano, Yolanda & Wolfe, and Kookie Haus, it's clear no matter what you pick up, it won't disappoint. 

Set to subdue the hunger pangs of most, Flour Mill has ensured to have all the boxes ticked and we'd have to concur.
