Nice little pub in a nice little village

I really enjoyed dining at this pub. There is the "proper pub" area around the bar, and then a proper dining section near the back of the restaurant. The pub offers a small selection or real ale, as well as the typical stuff. The food is fresh, and the menu changes seasonally. I would recommend the... read more

We went on a Saturday night for dinner, early evening so before the rush later on. The menu was pretty basic and pricey on the whole, I eat everything but nothing really appealed so went for the burger in the end....which was dry and lacking in flavour. The so-called Hazelnut Creme Brûlée had no hazelnut whatsoever and tasted like an... More

My first observation was the price of drinks, very close to London prices. We were a large party and attended on steak night. Food was nice but the order did get mixed up which resulted in 2 of the party having to wait for the meals to be re-cooked.

Clearly The Paper Mills has been going through a rough time of late which is a shame as it's always been good. As we had enjoyed the food at the sadly now closed Bistro over the road before the team moved here we thought we'd give it a go. We were delighted. The food was all delicious and portions generous.... More

My family and I are repeat visitors, we visited many times and I had past commented that it does the best steak I've ever had, however our latest visit left much to be desired. The double dipped hand cut chips have gone in favour of Mcfries, and other adjustments to shed cost from the meal which spoilt the overall feel... More

We have been going to this pub/restaurant since it reopened as there are not many decent restaurants in the area. Was always impressed with the menu, service and atmosphere. Recently however we have been increasingly disappointed. Went there on Friday, menu has reverted to pub-type, the only decent red meat option(steak) was finished. I had plaice but half the fish...

I went to the Paper Mills on Christmas Eve with my parents, my son and 4 friends for evening dinner. The pub was very busy with a nice atmosphere. Unfortunately from start to finish the meal was a disappointment. The food was ok at best but after 3 courses I was still hungry. The service was very slow throughout the... More

This is our local which we used to visit weekly but no longer I'm afraid, for some time now since the latest chef. There is only one choice for vegetarians and if you don't happen to like that, it's too bad! Having worked in the catering industry I have come across this arrogance where chef believes you should eat what... More

After reviewing the on line menu made a booking for a late afternoon lunch. There was no indication on the website or at the time of booking that the regular menu was replaced with a shortened Sunday lunch menu. Arrived on schedule at 3.30 pm bit uneasy that the place was virtually empty and was given the shortened Sunday lunch... More

Have eaten here on journey back from inlaws in London several times - usually for Sunday lunch- always had great meal. Helpful and charming waitresses - can't understand why it's not busier
