My husband and I had lunch with four friends at The Sheene Mill today. One couple live nearby and had eaten there before but for the rest of us it was a first visit.

We were lucky in that the weather was beautiful and we could enjoy a drink on the patio overlooking the Mill stream before going inside to the well decorated and airy dining room.

Our food orders were quickly taken and the waiting staff could not have been more helpful or attentive. Our lunches when the arrived were all judged to be tasty and very good value. The chicken breast and the traditional fish and chips were particularly appreciated!

The desserts were all well presented and I would recommend the Almond Panna Cotta which was beautifully light and served with almond shortbread biscuits.

The only criticism I could offer is that there were not enough garden shades up and we had to go in too soon because we could not sit in the heat of the sun, but I suppose this is not much of a problem in the usual English summer.....

We came to Sheene Mill for afternoon tea to celebrate our second wedding anniversary. (We like to come every year as we met and married here!). We brought our 9 month old daughter and all had a lovely time. The staff as usual were efficient and attentive without being too over the top.

The food was very delicious. The mini patisserie cakes and meringues were very yummy indeed!

Thank you for another great experience. See you again soon!

P.s the bar food also looked amazing and great value so would recommend that also!

Lovely gardens & can see why it's so popular with weddings. The restaurant lacks atmosphere but would probably work better with functions due to the way it's laid out & decorated. The pre dinner nibbles were very tasty & the starters & desserts nicely presented, but nothing amazing. The food is ok but not worth the prices we paid. We will not be going back again.

Visited for dinner last night a family group of 8, after not visiting since last year. Beautifully refurbished restaurant and bar. Excellent service, excellent food, will definitely be back more often.
We struggle to find really good food in restaurants in the Cambridge area these day but The Sheene Mill did themselves proud. How lucky we are in Melbourn to have it!
