Have visited The Paper Mill many times for breakfast and lunch but it is a while since we have been for dinner on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was full to capacity despite it being mid January. For that reason I strongly recommend booking, like we did. Alot of the customers seem to have driven and opted for an early... More

Had breakfast at papermill which the food was ok however the amount of dogs there was while we were eating was very off putting. Table we were placed at was not even clean from the previous people and was covered in dog hairs. Will most certainly not be back.

Had dinner there and the food was a big improvement on our last visit. We were there a couple of years ago and vowed we would not go back, but decided to give it another try and bought a voucher. Staff are friendly, service is good as is the food. Will definitely go back again soon. Well done guys!!

We had dinner here (again!) in December - it's such an atmospheric and good place to eat, both in the bar and the main restaurant. The menu had changed a bit since our last visit and we felt there was more variety and a better mix of dishes to choose from. Service was really good, attentive, and we loved our... More

We arrived sharp hoping to get a seat, there were none, but the staff gave us six stools beside the fire, later on the manager came over with a table for us. The place was full but never had to wait to long at the bar, staff all very good, great live music and by the end of the night... More

My family and I visited for a late lunch. I had a burger and my wife had a steak sandwich. My burger was OK, the roll was slightly hard but the chips and coleslaw were great. The food was quick in coming out. My wife enjoyed her meal but found the steak sinewy. My two sons shared a macaroni and... More

Visited last night with my wife's work friends. The Papermill did very well with us and accommodated the fact that we were late in arriving so that is good! The food was pretty good. Duck liver and bacon confit was very tasty. Could have had more of that. The steak was ok. Perhaps a bit grisly however i did finish... More

Greeted by friendly, attentive staff. Staff dealt with busy restaurant well. Relaxed atmosphere and the restaurant was clean and warm. All three courses were absolutely delicious, and the portion sizes were of good size. The only downside to the experience was the prices of the drinks - which seemed to be a little high. Overall a great experience, would defined... More
