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

We went to The Paper Mills for an impromptu late Sunday afternoon lunch. The place was almost empty and we ordered two roast beef. Food arrived but a very haphazard service beyond this meant that we had plates of meat with a Yorkshire pudd and then a wait for veg, a wait for knives and forks and a further wait... More

We called in for a drink on a wet bank holiday but the food looked so good we stayed for lunch. The sandwiches are superb and we tried the fish finger sandwich (artisan bread, fish fillet and homemade tartar sauce) and the beef and horseradish both of which were equally brilliant. Our friend had the burger.... a proper burger cooked... More

We wanted to get out of Peterborough and have a quiet meal in one of the villages, Wansford is always a favourite so we chose the Paper Mills and were not disappointed. It manages to mix a pub feel with a choice of corners to sit and eat - we could have chosen the conservatory but just being a couple... More

We visited The Paper Mills for a joint staff do/70th birthday last month. There was quite a crowd of us (mixed ages) and the staff were absolutely lovely to us upon arrival and thereafter. Before our visit we had been sent a sample menu so knew the sort of thing to expect price wise. They are what I would consider... More
