Nice pub, not worth the wait for food

Lovely pub, with a good outside area. Good service but food not great. We were told to expect a short delay as the pub was quite busy but we ended up waiting nearly an hour for Sunday roasts which were cold and had dry roast potatoes. Suggest it might be worth sticking to drinks when it's busy here... read more

We took a random drive to berkhampsted and decided on this place mainly due to it having a car park and no phone signal meant I couldn't look on trip adviser for places to go!! We arrived on a very busy Sunday lunch at the busiest time and they kindly found us a table outside. Service was excellent - the... More

Very good service considering how busy the pub was on this visit. The food was good with the Roasts much better than the Veggie option which was a little disappointing. A good and well priced wine list with a good selection of Gins available.

Ever since thus venue reopened the new owners have elevated this ordinary pub into a notable place to wine and dine. A real welcome awaits with a great atmosphere

6 of us went on a very warm Saturday evening and the staff happily moved us outside next to the river. Little dark so they brought us lots of candles. Good selection plus an excellent specials board from which we all had at least one course. Nice wine, lovely food, attentive staff. I would say it is a little on... More

Have eaten in the Old Mill many times and has always been reasonably good food and decent portions so thought it would be a good choice to take some visiting friends even though we haven't been for a while. They arrived before us and got a good spot on the patio area by the water with a view to the... More
