Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Resonably Priced. Very welcoming and amenable. Clean and tidy, extremely friendly, amenable and has a very nice atmosphere. 4.9 stars. We visited the wonderful The Old Mill for breakfast. At first, as a new customer, is was not obvious whether we order at the bar/till...or we take a seat. We asked and the very polite lady told us to find a table we liked and order at the bar/till. 2 adults and 2 children. We went for 2 large breakfasts and a small breakfast and 2 slices of toast and jam. We asked to make some changes to all three breakfasts as there were things we don't like. Nothing was too much trouble, they said that was perfectly fine. Wonderful service. The drinks were delivered almost immediately. we had to ask for swweteners and some extra tap water. What would make the experience better would be asking if we'd like a small jug of water and some glasses for the table (after a drinks order has been placed so as not to discourage drinks purchases). The food came within 10-15 mintes. Perfectly within a reasonable timeframe. The chef had added a few extra items to each plate to subsidise what we'd asked to be removed (as we didn't like some items). Not all places will do that, so this means the difference between a place we'll return to in future. The food was excellent, well cooked and very nicely presented. One thing we noticed was, due to the plates not being pre-warmed, the food became cold quite quickly. The toast was already nearly cold. This meant we needed to eat quickly. Not a massive bother, but worth the chefr noting that pre-warming plates would be a nice touch. If I could give it 4.9 stars I would. If they had pre-heated the plates and they served water without having to ask, it would have been 5-stars. None of the constructive critisisms I have mentioned would prevent us from returning. The place is clean and tidy, extremely friendly, amenable and has a very nice atmosphere. All-in-all, I would give this place 4.9 stars. You will not be dissapointed with yor visit here. Welll done to the owners and staff. Wonderful.More

We came to the broads for a day out, we were early for the boat so popped in to The Old Mill for a coffee. We chose the right spot! The staff were super friendly and welcoming, prices were great and the food looked amazing...although we didn’t get to try it! If you’re ever in Wroxham definitely pop in and say hello to these guys! We were a hen party and they even gave the bride a free bottle of processco to say congratulations! Such a lovely small business definitely worthy of supporting!More

Look beyond the High Street! Tucked away behind shops, the little gem was a great find. We had originally chosen somewhere else but no outdoor seating! Too nice to be sitting inside so we found this excellent cafe/bar. Perched near the river, lovely views! Chose...one of today’s specials- prawn & avocado salad, good choice, delicious! The Manager came out for a chat too which was really nice, all staff lovely. Finished off with a decaf latte, perfect temperature, very smooth coffee. A most enjoyable lunch! Thank you. Highly recommend.More

We went for my mum’s birthday meal. The choice of food was excellent. We choose a prawn and avocado salad. It was delicious and exceeded our expectations. Everything was in separate containers so you could customise your salad. It was so fresh, the coleslaw was...very tasty. And to add to our wonderful experience the manager sang happy birthday to my mum with some awesome lemon and ginger cake. I can’t recommend them highly enough and I can’t wait to go back! Fantastic find.More

Hi Phil, I think you might struggle to get 38 people inside but if the weather is good there is seating outside also. The owner is really friendly and accommodating so maybe worth giving him a call. Hope you get sorted... More
