Went here for a work Xmas meal with 9 other people, having not gone to the Saxon Mill before. It's set in a lovely place by a canal and I imagine in summer I'll be doing a return visit on a weekend for a drink!

The atmosphere inside was nice, nothing particularly special, but better than the bog standard pub. The food was lovely, with nobody having any complaints over any of the three courses - I'd definitely return for the food.

The thing that let Saxon Mill down for me, was the service. They took an incredibly long time to bring food and the gaps between courses verged on irritating. The girls themselves were lovely, couldn't fault them.

As mentioned, I'll return in summer to see how it is then..

Went to saxon mill last night the service is terrible we had to wait half an hour for a drink.
The food is over priced and not very nice
The only plus point of this place is in the summer it has wonderful views and is nice place to sit outside and have a drink

Hi there,

My apologies that your experience with us at the Saxon Mill was a dissapointing one. December is a very busy period for us but this is no excuse for anything less than excellent service.
If you'd like to contact me and discuss your experience further, the telephone number here is 01926 492255.
I'd love for you to return to The Saxon Mill so that we can show you the excellent standard of service that you should have received first time around.

This place has a good menu and is quite reasonably priced. If you just go there for a drink, there is insufficient numbers serving and you can wait 15-20 minutes to ber served.

Went to have a sunday lunch with friend prebooked meal for 2. Ordered 2 Roast beef dinners with seasonable vegetables from Sunday menu. The restaurant was packed very busy. Waiteress we had was lovely very attentive very nice girl. Nothing was a problem drinks arrived swiftly. The meal arrived about 10 minutes after we ordered we were absolutely amazed how quick the food arrived. Nice size generous portions looked really good and colourful. Vegetables looked lovely nice mange touts asparagus carrots and stem broccoli. Portion of cauliflower cheese arrived too. Large yorkshire pudding and many slices of roast beef. It was beautifully cooked the beef was delcious melt in the mouth and so was the potatoes and pumpkin. Most amazing Sunday lunch I have ever had. Really full vegetables were nice and green and slightly crunchy not overcooked and very sweet and tasty. Loved the whole dinner . The dessert menu was simple and short four desserts to choose from. We chose the apple tart with clotted cream ice cream. Desserts arrived about 15 minutes after we had chosen. Nice clean white plates atrractively arranged and absolutely delicious. Apples on pancake and side scoop of icecream and fresh raspberries made the desert look very attractive to look at and enjoyed it all. The meal came to £36 for 2 persons my friend was very impressed and we would definitely come again the staff were absolutely lovely best staff Ive seen service excellent. Lovely table view nice friendly rustic atmosphere and clean and homely dining room and very good value. The view overlooking the water mill was beautiful on a lovely sunny afternoon overlooking river.

Went as a party of 13 including 3 children. Food was great from the Christmas menu with a children's menu available. Service was fast and friendly with good attention to anything that was needed. All in all a good night at a venue I would recommend.
