Pretty cafe overlooking the mill pond and rolling fields. Popular with walkers. Soups, hearty sandwhiches, baked potatoes. Also lovely looking scones jam and cream. We had lunch there and would go again.

We always come here when in the Cotswolds, I had the biggest fresh ham sandwich and soup. Wife had salad. Both first class and freindly staff.

Picture-perfect setting. Great place to browse through the shop and get a treat at the cafe as well. Staff were friendly and happy to answer questions and engage in conversations about the area and its history.

This mill has a lot of history ... you can learn more at the museum. We had lunch at the River Cafe; not cheap but delicious.

We did not go into the museum - but spent some time in the charming shoppe that's attached...and even bought a few small things to remember our trip. Not to touristy and nicer things to purchase than the usual touristy knick knacks.

The Old Mill riverside cafe is an absolute delight. Situated right beside the millstream, in this very best Cotswolds village, with stone tables under large parasols, it serves good food at a reasonable price. There are even seat cushions available for those with unforgiving bottoms!...More

Hi, no not actually with the mill, you have to park on the road in the village and walk to it, only take a few mins to walk to the edge of the village. kind regards
