Ate here with a friend for lunch. Larger portions than I expected. Amazing food and staff was courteous and helpful. I will definitely be going back and will probably be getting the afternoon tea, which looked amazing.

During our recent vacation to England we decided that a traditional Afternoon Tea would be a British experience worthy of our precious time. Visiting the Riverside Hotel in Mildenhall Village, Suffolk was right on. We were looked after by the professional team. The course was a three-tier stand, which included wonderfully light scones and clotted cream, a variety of sandwiches,... More

Stayed here for one Saturday night in June and a really good hotel recently refurbished. The greeting was fine and the room was excellent with a newly refurbished ensuite. Drink prices in the bar were reasonable and certainly not the normal rip off you find in other similar hotels. The small lounge at the front of the hotel is very... More

We keep trying as are local but during the fish had another poor meal. Have to give up now as given it enough chance Best to go out of town to Newmarket or The Old Plough at Ashley for a decent meal. Nothing in mildenhall is any good.

We recently visited this lovely hotel to have lunch as my mother inlaw was staying with us for a few days. We were very impressed with the dining room which is beautifully decorated and our table was positioned overlooking the garden, which is really pretty. The staff here are very friendly, without being intrusive, the menu was very good and... More

Our waitress, I believe her name was Suzanne ,was exceptionally friendly and explained the afternoon tea menu to us in great detail. The afternoon tea was one of the best that... More
