Poor, slow and rude service. 20 min for a round of drinks. Then waitress comes to retake drinks order! Then, an hour waiting for our meal, when asked about it and waiter says yes, and continues to go clear an empty table. We are still waiting at 21:30 and will not be coming back! Unless we want rude snooty service!

What a turnaround. Poorly kept beer and overpriced food. The "Catch of the Day" was probably the unsuspecting diner who hoped he might be getting fresh fish and not a palid and poorly cooked fish and chips.The "fixed price" offering is so restrictive as to be wholly misleading.Fancy ordering overpriced salmon and having to pay a further £3.50 for potatoes.The...

The Old Mill is a favourite of ours as the food is always of a good standard and the service is generally good. (It can be slow on occasion) Menu is good, especially if you have children as the platters are a good choice to cover everyones tastes and they are more than willing to make small versions of the...

I agree with other reviewers that this is by no means a cheap night out but we were visiting for a special occasion. Deli board was a bit disappointing tbh. Tiny portions. However the main courses were delicious. I had risotto and the starter size was plenty. So tasty and well cooked and seasoned. My husband had a steak and... More

Rather disappointed with very slow service and had to send back our tuna nicoise salad - as initial portions of 2 very small bits of tuna were very salty and overcooked- having waited 40 minutes after starters. The manager was very apologetic but will not be back in a hurry

Ate here early on a Friday night on a warm evening. Sat outside which was nice. The menu offers choice but nothing is cheap, it's an expensive night out. I ate the fishcake on samphire which was very tasty. My friend ate the hake. We enjoyed our mains and shared a pudding.. Overall quality is above a run of the... More

Ate here today while waiting for clients who are having a business lunch there. Chose to eat in the bar area, I understand that these are usually less formal than restaurant area. First item I chose from Menu was NOT available :( So I chose Burger, served with a small pot of chips, very small dish of coleslaw and only... More

We visited Berkhamsted on the recent Bank Holiday Monday, and went to The Old Mill for lunch. It was quite disappointing really. The service was really slow, and I wasn't impressed with the food either. The place itself is good, smartly decked out, with a buzzy atmosphere. And there's the actual mill at the back, which is quite exciting to... More
