Pleasant atmosphere and helpful staff

The place had a nice atmosphere and I very much liked the quirkiness of the building, with lots of different dining spaces and plenty of outside tables for summer eating. The staff were friendly and obliging. The food was fine, though portions a bit on the small side and quite pricey for what it... read more

Had not been here for several years so it was a delight to experience the pleasant renovation and the food was good with plenty of choice. The staff very attentive and quick service. Being at the quiet end of Berkhamsted made arriving more the arriving more pleasant.

15th July 2015. Arrived at 7.30 for an unbooked evening meal. Given a menu and shown to The Snug. Nobody else in the room at all so had a choice of seats but didn't want to sit on any of them because they were all so incredibly filthy. the bench seat by the window was supposed to be read but...

Met up for a work catch up. Really impressed last time so re-booked. Sat outside as it was a boiling day. Lovely decking area. The thing that let the evening down was the complete lack of choice. A lovely Kiwi waitress apologised as soon as we arrived. Over half the menu was unavailable, or there was one salmon, 3 gammon,... More

An easy to park location, and a really nice setting. Plenty of options for outside seating & cosy rooms inside + casual eating at on high stools also. The lunch time menu is excellent, and the soup was well thought out for the hottest day of the year. And the salads (available as a main or a starter) were well... More

I took my elderly parents here as it was Dad's birthday but we had several problems; first it was difficult to get in from the car park as the restaurant is approached by steps and cobbled paths. Then there was a big step down to the bar where we waited ages to be seated. The menu was modern and fussy... More

Have now been to The Old Mill for Sunday lunch on several occasions, sometimes as a couple, often with family and friends. It never disappoints with fresh meat and veg and generous portions...you can even ask for more veg if you wish! Beer and wine selections also good and staff very welcoming and helpful

One of our party has severe food allergies .The staff refered this to the chef who highlighted what our friend could or could not eat from the menu. This was very helpful and all the staff were very attentive and helped to make a very enjoyable visit to the Old Mill.
