“Great meal and party night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2013

We went to a Friday night Christmas party night with friends and had a great night out. The bar was cosy for a pre-dinner drink. The food was really good, and good value for money - impressive at Christmas with so many covers when other restaurants sometimes let standards slip. Service was friendly and attentive. The after dinner disco was also well judged and ended a great night out.

Wonderful Christmas party night, the ambience, food and service were all excellent. The quality of the food was extremely high and the portions were huge! Well done Serena & Jordan for turning Sheene Mill around and putting it back on the map ! We will be back.

We revisited after a gap of some 5 years or so. We were delighted to find that the decline in standards previously experienced had been halted that the current management have clearly made great strides in returning to the excellence for which Sheene Mill had become known in the days of Steven Saunders.
The food was beautifully presented, plentiful & full of flavour. Service was good despite being delivered by ,judging by their age, relatively inexperienced staff. However, their keenness to please was appreciated.
This visit was something of a "reccy" for a Sunday lunch venue to share with friends. Suffice to say we will be returning

The title is all I need to say. We had looked at several venues and this ticked all the boxes from the welcome you receive when you arrive to the excellent service. We haven't eaten there yet but the menu looks amazing.

I have been staying at this fabulous old Mill for many years, and since it has been under new management it has changed so much for the better. The building is what it is, full of character, and just in such a wonderful location on a secret lake. The young couple who have now run it for nearly a year have put so much effort into restoring it to its former glory. They still have lots to do, but they have now got a great chef, so I look forward to my meals there whenever I stay.

I often entertain my local customers and colleagues at The Mill. We have had some great nights, in the summer on the deck by the lake, being entertained by the crazy swan William and now come winter sat by he open fires. Sadly I will not be down again before Christmas, but had the Christmas menu plus a few extras last week....so much fun.

My daughter is getting married at The Mill in the spring, so we shall be back!!! She seems to be hooked n the spa ESSE across the road, so make sure you bring your wallet guys!!

I have visited The Sheene Mill a number of times over the past few months for one reason or another and every time, I have been delighted with something new. I was lucky enough to attend a friends Wedding and the day was simply sublime, the grounds are just perfect for a sunny Summers day and despite there being over 100 guests the food and service could not have been faulted. I since went for a lunch with a couple of girlfriends and the selection of menu choice was very impressive, we wanted a nice lunch bite and we got exactly that and were able to sit in the Conservatory which had a great buzz about the place. With having such good experiences I have booked a group of friends in for our annual Christmas dinner on one of their Party Nights and we are all vey excited.
The Venue has so much to offer and if they continue in the direction they are going then I will certainly become a regular visitor.
