I visited the Rivermill for the first time on Sunday and took advantage of the £13.95 menu, which is all you can eat but made to order, therefore it's very fresh. Good selection regardless of price and very good service. Not overly grand but very good food and quantity.

I visited the restaurant for the Sunday buffet, when we arrived we were told that the buffett had changed , instead of the £10.80 buffet style, it was choosing from the menu as much as you like for the price of £13.90 but as we had booked in advance they offered us the same price, the weather was beautiful so...

Don't have the take away food, we have just had the worst Chinese food, stuffed mushrooms had to be spat out by my wife and all of the 3 types of meat we had ordered shared a lot in common with rubber, noodles and rice were just as bad and prawn crackers stale. Don't waste your time and money going... More

I am a regular customer, as well as my family, in the rivermill restaurant. And all my family say it is the best chinese for miles. I would recomend this to anyone as of the restaurants most luxurious meals with its most tender meat and its most delicious food.

Took 2hrs 20 mins to come, we were told 1hr 30mins on the phone. When we phoned them about it we were just told that they were swamped with orders and the delivery drivers were having trouble in the weather. No service recovery was attempted with us. Food pretty standard Chinese food, I would say it was reasonably priced. Having... More

Having moved to Sawbridgeworth my boyfriend and I still drive to Bishops Stortford to collect from the rivermill. My personal favourite is the Kung Po chicken, by far the best I have eaten. The staff behind the counter are always very friendly and the food is a good price. If your after your new takeaway spot this is the one!

This was our first visit to The RiverMill and although the food was all fresh and well cooked the choice as a buffet was not huge. The duck pancakes were pretty thin on duck and they only put 6 pancakes out at a time in a steamer, already rolled, so most of the time there either weren't any left or... More
