“Perfect Place for the Sun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Hit the jackpot when we visited this place the sun was shinning and the sun was high in the sky. When we arrived we were offered a seat outside in the sun which we jumped at. The staff were friendly upon arrival and the good service was kept up all the way throw our time there.

I did find the menu a bit limiting but what was on it was really nice and presented in a very tempting way.

This is a great place when the sun is shinning need to go back when it raining and see what its like inside.

“Missing attention to detail”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

So we had breakfast at the paper mill today. My partner and I both went for eggs and ham on toasted muffin. Both muffins were burnt! Ham didn't look the freshest either. We didn't want to embarrass the waitress by drawing attention to our disappointment. Also there was a poor welcome response from bar staff when we arrived. Go elsewhere Is my advice xx

“Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

The Paper Mill is a great, beautiful place hidden away from tourist tracks if Edinburgh. Yet, it is only 15 mins drive from the centre.
The interior is bigger than it seems from outside and has a few parts, perfect for drinks only or dining.
The restaurant has beautifully positioned terrace overlooking the river Esk and all is set in an idyllic location - village of Lasswade.
My partner and I had dinner there and we chose the 2 meals for £20 offer. There is a nice selection of dishes to choose from in this offer. Great value for money. There is also a selection of drinks for £5 each and I would especially recommend Bahama Mamma. Delicious!
Service was superb and we will for sure come back there many times!
