Five of us reserved for 1 pm Sunday lunch recently. The table offered was in middle of numerous families with small children... The overall noise level would have prevented relaxed private conversation. Outside area next to working mill was completely empty, and drinks bar quiet. We asked For an other table, were told they didn't serve outside, but thankfully were... More

Visited on the spur of the moment, and loved it! Superb, friendly, service. Absolutely yummy meal- I had the duck. Highly recommended. Saturday night busy early evening so we sat outside snuggled under a blanket with a heater. Nice! Would definitely return :)

Went here recently on a Sunday. Was looking for somewhere in a nice setting, with good parking and a reasonable menu choice. Here, the pub scored 2 out of 3, with the usual menu unavailable and Sunday lunch very much the order of the day. Not wanting a roast, I ordered the rump steak - only to be told it... More

We chose The Old Mill as a lunch date as it had such good reviews over other restaurants in Berkhampstead. It's a pretty mill house and well placed slightly out of town. We sat outside to enjoy the first great Saturday weather of the year in what was a quiet courtyard with just a few tables. However as friends of... More

Friday evening and the bar was packed. Many boisterous young people made for a lively atmosphere. The restaurant was busy too. friendly and bustling - perfect for friends (if a little noisy) but not a quiet, intimate place for couples. We had main course and puddings. The scallops and monkfish caused envy all round - huge portion, beautifully presented and... More

We came here on Father's Day early evening. The restaurant was very busy as a knock on effect the service was very slow. We waiting over 30 minutes for our drinks and our starters came out before the drinks. The food was good, nicely presented and using nice produce. All of the staff were very personable and the manager kindly... More

Hello Sophonthemove, I'm so sorry to hear that your Father's Day experience was not up to our usually high standards. Thank you for understanding that it was a very, very busy day for the entire team and though this is not an excuse for slow service it is sometimes, unfortunately, unavoidable. Please email me next time you are coming in... More

We hadn't been to The Old Mill for a few months, and have now been twice in two weeks! We were in for Sunday lunch and unlike the previous weekend this time the restaurant was not too crowded, I chose the Pan Fried Scallops & Monkfish, Bombay Potatoes & Indian Salad as a starter; this was an amazing dish with...

This is a good place to meet friends. Big car park, lots of outside tables which would be nice if we ever get decent weather! Quite big inside but it is all in small sections so not barn like. The staff are very nice and helpful. There is a good value three course lunch menu with different choices and an... More
