Poor service

Nice pretty place but unlikely to go back again as the service is dreadful despite there being lots of staff standing around chatting rather than looking after the customer's, we had to go to the bar to order a drink as there was no-one interested in doing this for us, food average after waiting... read more

It's such a shame - The Old Mill is a lovely old building in a great location by the canal in Berkhamsted, and the decor inside gives the impression of a good quality gastropub, but it's really not. First of all, the menu is pretty boring. Given the image they present, I was expecting a bit more than bangers and... More

We were welcomed as if we were old friends. Food a joy to look at and eat. Loved how my asparagus was served, three plant pots!!!! A great way to spend our 1st wedding anniversary and reflect over good food, wine and service too!

This is one of my favourite places for un-planned drink, but have on occasions had a bar snack. The food recently has been of very poor quality. We had Sunday lunch which felt like it came from a pre-pack. The meat was tough and of very poor quality. When you are paying £70 plus for two people you expect a... More

I remembered the place from years ago; it's a splendid setting, next to the canal, the staff were generally pleasant, the beer of good quality. So, those are the plus points. But then we move onto the food. A bill of over £100 for 3 people for an average lunch and a couple of drinks. Did we have the best... More

My review is based upon a Thursday night for a few drinks with a friend after work. My observations; 1. Surly staff, not a smile in sight - also alluded to in a previous review. 2. Disgusting gentlemen’s toilets. 3. Seating for those not wishing to sit at a dining table is limited.

I visited here on Bank holiday Monday. Understandably it was very busy. They were not serving their usual menu, only their Sunday menu. We were seated in the lovely garden next to the waterfall. When we were served, there was no mention on how long the food would take to arrive. Only after waiting over an hour, I overheard at... More

1 hour 45 wait for a below average burger at an above average price. Nice place for a drink but I'll be avoiding the food from now on.

Last Saturday (April 25) we had a wonderful dinner at the Old Mill. While the rain poured down outside, inside the sun came out when the red mullet was served with a smile. Arjan van Lit
