Can across this by accident on the internet, read the reviews and thought why not. Well we were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and ready to please. The restaurant was small and atmosphere was good. The buffet area was also small but the food made up for it. Freshly cooked and also being topped up and if it... More

The Rivermill has been one of my family favourites for many years. We have always been made to feel welcome. The buffet food is good and due to the smaller size of the buffet it is guaranteed to be fresh food every time you go up. Pricing is very fair at £14 for adults and £6 for under 10s

Fabulous Chinese restaurant, I may be biased as it is literally around the corner, but best in Stortford. Good buffet offering, nice place on the river, lovely atmosphere and fabulous staff.

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.

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.
