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...

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.

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...
