We are regular visitors to The Mill at Sonning and took some friends this week to see a play called "Stone Cold Murder" which we all thoroughly enjoyed. It was well worth seeing and the four actors were brilliant. The only disappointment was the meal as they have decided to make it a buffet and although the plates were very... More

Perfectly done small stage productions. Great actors that you sit so close you can hear everything. All kinds of acts, plays and music.

Have been frequently to the mill and always enjoyed our visits. Just returned from a half empty performance lacking it's usual buzz . The menu was very strange and with only 3 choices on offer one of those was not available. The accompanying dishes were of a poor standard and it would appear you now serve everything yourself meaning there... More

We wanted to watch a show but unfortunately they don't have shows on tuesdays. Also the next couple of days was sold out. But the setting is beautiful next to Thames. And across are other hotels that may have been more ideal but more expensive.

We visited for the afternoon matinee performance. Visiting with a very fussy vegetarian meant that I had to vet the menu beforehand and then ask the manager if an alternative could be offered. It could and it all went well. The food selection is quite good; simple food, not very adventurous but sound. There are plenty of vegetables on offer... More

We were guests of a larger group on our visit to the Mill at Sonning and everything was excellent. Therestaurant staff were willing and helpful although it was not the easiest of place to serve customers as the Mill is on serveral levels and with uneven floors. The main course was buffet style with a choice of four hot dishes... More
