I moved to Apsley just over a year ago and have been to the Paper Mill many times and always enjoyed it. I'm winter it's cozy with the fire, in summer great to be by the canal. Food is what you would expect from a gastro pub and always good value for money. Also recommend for an evening drink as... More

Having driven past this venue over the years I decided to go for an evening meal with 2 girlfriends. The place is large with an outside area that I can't wait to try in the warmer weather. It was busy but the service was prompt, friendly and attentive. The menu is fairly limited and would benefit for a few more... More

We were a group of 9 on Christmas Day. We had a lovely meal with crackers. We were not rushed and could take as long as we wanted to do so. We all had traditional turkey for our main course. For pudding some had traditional Christmas pudding and some had a delicious chocolate alternative. Our waitress was very attentive and... More

Fantastic food in a very lively pub. The restaurant in which we sat was away from people just having a drunk and the atmosphere couldn't have been more different. Whereas the pub was noisy and loud downstairs, upstairs was peaceful and calm, even with how busy it was! Book in advance though! The food was great, my partner ordered fish... More

Location is lovely. Parking bit iffy when it's busy but come on Greene king ... outside seating... ya need more . There was about 50 people stood up wanting to jump in a seat. You have to go outside coz the noise and echoing of the wooden floor is ABH of the eardrums
