We booked a table for lunch on Easter Bank Holiday Monday, and were looking forward to eating here again as we hadn't visited for a while. Our waitress (Chloe I think her name was) was very helpful and attentive, and took our orders. The starters - deep fried calamari were good, and were served very quickly. Unfortunately that's where it... More

We somehow managed to get a table on a Saturday night, and we're amazed by the standard of food and service. To begin we had a wonderful Gin and tonic in the bar served with juniper berries, the bar area is a little small, and though you can eat there I would recommend going through to the restaurant. They have... More

Every member of staff that served us seemed unhappy. Menu is limited and I feel it takes itself a bit too seriously. A real shame because a lovely location right on the canal with benches out on the grass

I love coming here. My favourite restaurant in Berkhamsted. The food is consistently good and the atmosphere is perfect for my taste.

From starter to desert everything was microwaved, lacking in taste, favor and any life to be honest. A large birthday dinner which saw a vast array of dishes being served at different times, some experiencing a 30 mins wait for their main course which meant that 80% had finished their food. The puddings were dreadful, classic microwaved food from Iceland... More

We were a group of 5 visiting on a Saturday for a late lunch. We were shown to a pokey alcove table with no room to move. The waitress was over keen to take our order on arrival, but was no where to be seen when we had finished our main course. We had to wait to 'catch' her in... More

Came to The Old Mill for lunch today with a group of friends. We sat outside and I was so impressed at the fact that we got full table service, even sitting outside a fair distance away from the restautant. The staff were all friendly and enthusiastic, and there were some great burger specials on offer as well. Very impressed... More

An impromptu visit to the Old Mill on Easter Monday proved quite the treat. Very busy but just added to the buzzing atmosphere. The staff from Australia and New Zealand were all extremely helpfull and friendly. The crab benedict was a personal highlight as was the lamb burger special with blue cheese. Overall a great experience and look forward to... More
