The Mill

The Mill in New Glasgow started life as the New Glasgow Hall. It was built in approximately 1896 and served the community as both a courthouse and a gathering place for social events, meetings, debates and dances. In later years, the Hall was used for reserve army training sessions, local church suppers and Junior Farmer square dances.

In the 1960s the Hall was converted into a grist mill by the Dingwell family and then sold to Roland Larkin in the mid-1970s. In 1997 it was converted by Roland's son and daughter-in-law, Harvey and Rosemary, into the Olde Glasgow Mill Restaurant. Chef Emily Wells purchased the restaurant from the Larkins in 2015 and renamed it The Mill in New Glasgow.
