“excellent value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

The Old mill does a lunch time smorgasbord for $21 and it is all you can eat, there are at least 10 different mains to choose from plus salads, also 7\8 desserts. Very well cooked and presented, superb value. Its even cheaper on a Tuesday. If you visit Hahndorf then the old mill is the place.

“The Winner here is the excellent smorgasbord”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

The choice of food at the buffet is always tempting and rewards the biggest appetite. I particularly like their wide choice from delicious soups, cold serves, roasts, fish, chicken, Indian curries and lasagne. Their Apple strudel has one coming back for more but then with the large selection of Pavlova, mouse, peach sponge custard and much more certainly it is an ideal place for solving family dinner choices.
But it would be so much more enjoyable if they could only replace those worn out chairs !

“No hassle breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

We rang the Old Mill at 9.30am and spoke to Bev. She explained the breakfast menu and arranged for the chef to stay a little longer so we could eat. The food was lovely and well priced. If you choose accommodation in town that doesn't have a breakfast option, this is the place to go. We will stay at the Old Mill for our next trip to Hahndorf and enjoy dinner as well.

“Inventive cuisine in touristic spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

The menu has very interesting choices and the dishes are very well presented. This is particularly pleasant in a town where small fast food places abund.
Service is very good.

“Lovely Sunday lunch, sit outside ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Went to hanhdorf on a very busy Sunday. Place was absolutely packed, lots of locals and visitors which was great to see

Walked by the Old Mill & was taken with the lovely building. Decided to sit outside which was very shady. Great for people watching.Option to order from the menu or buffet. Decided on a chicken burger and chicken schnitzel which were both very good. Also was given some bread rolls before our meals came out

Some reviewers complained about slow or inefficient service. Definitely did not have this problem. Despite a huge workload and busy time of the year, the staff were friendly and were very fast in their service.

Order food at the bar if not eating at the buffet
