“What a let down”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant has a lovely setting if only they would take down the horrible grass stained 'tent' which blocks the views in the grounds .
My friend and I went to the 2 for Tuesday lunch . I had a pie which was tasteless and soggy , I really do not like yo complain but it was so bad I asked the waitress to take it away . I was offered to gave another main but declined as the starters were not great either , greasy and not palatable .
The puddings were not great . The sticky toffee pudding was two large pieces slopped on the plate and the sauce looked so dark and tasteless.
This visit was to see if any improvements had been made since last visits as I believe you should always go back and try again . Definitely won't go back & spend here . Total disappointment . They really need to step up and sort it out , get rid of the eye sore tent , give it a good clean , replace the old carpets .

“What a difference”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

New young owners have really improved the value for money of this restaurant. Food is still excellent, if less nouvelle cuisine than previously, and service is all you could ask for. Great place for a meal out with good friends.

“Smashing Sharnbrook Mill Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

Previously we were Sharnbrook residents and now when we visit old friends we stay at the Mill and invite people there to share a meal or two. we have not been disappointed and Carl and his team have worked really hard to present such a lovely relaxing friendly cosy atmosphere with fabulous food and wine. Rooms are also very comfortable and immaculate with everything required.we always look forward to our next stay!!!
