Recommend to everyone reading this! Lovely warm welcome walking into the restaurant, greeted nicely by all front of house staff. Gave plenty of time between ordering, never pushy at any time. Was good and friendly with children, having a laugh with them and explaining everything to them. Food... read more

We regularly visit the Rivermill for the weekend buffet. There is a variety of different dishes for example egg fried rice, chicken balls, sweet and sour chicken, beef in black bean sauce, prawn toast, prawn crackers, crispy duck and pancakes with hoisin sauce and chicken satay. They also have jelly and cheesecake for dessert. The drinks are reasonably priced along... More

Staff couldn't be more helpful or friendlier. We ordered off the menu not the buffet and had an amazing crispy duck to share for starters and the main courses were excellent, especially the chicken curry. Very good value for money, cocktails and wine too!! Can't go wrong.

Took the family here for a meal on Sunday 22nd Feb 2015. We had their set 'table buffet' menu which is reasonably priced. The starters arrived and were of a decent quality and the waiter was engaging and professional. We then had a duck course that was a little dry but acceptable. Then we made the mistake of ordering a... More

Been a customer for many times, for many different reasons - family, romantic, friends etc, and never have I been disappointed. After coming here for years, it is safe to say it is the best Chinese in Stortford. Recently however, it has changed, and the buffet is only on one day a week. On other days they do a buffet...

Visited with freinds for a pre Christmas get together. The venue is too small and had zero atmosphere the aquarium fish were ok though The buffet was served in a dingy corner and consisted of mainly battered food. The gents lav was very small and lacked a urinal. Not worth wasting money here!!!

It was buffet evening so we booked a family table for 6 which was not a problem as it was suprisingly quite empty for a Saturday night. The buffet was not to everyones taste as none of the small bucket/portions were labelled and folk wanted to know what they were eating and staff were not forthcoming with descriptions so half...
