Fantastic location, very friendly staff, lovely building and the food was great. However we could not quite get our heads round the portions. There was an element of nouvelle cuisine; large plates with small interesting things on them. Yet at the end I ordered a chocolate ganeshe which was rich enough to feed four people and the rest of my family looked in with envy.

I would certainly recommend the place and hats off to the staff who were well trained and engaged but it might be nice to see a bit more on the plate.

Attended afternoon tea, party of 20, arranged for my son's girlfriend. Absolutely delightful, food was delicious, service was good, sandwiches were lovely, some of the best scones I have tasted and the cakes were abolsutely yummy. Could not fault a thing. Well done Oundle Mill, excellent location, beautiful building, great food, good service, 5 out of 5. Looking forward to next visit.

Had the most wonderful meal last night at this fantastic restaurant. Service was excellent and the surroundings make it worth every penny ! Also stayed the night in the Lucom room which was quirky and gorgeous and cant wait to stay there again.

The location is superb, set literally on the river Nene (you can look down and see the mill race run under your feet). It is within easy walking distance of Oundle, the marina and the nature reserve.

The restaurant is on the first floor, (not sure about disabled access to it), and serves a very cosmopolitan menu for lunch and dinner.

The servers are extremely knowledgeable about the menu, and very helpful indeed - some of it needed translating!

We had the three course lunch which was very well presented in nouvelle cuisine style, with a range of soups, pate's and suchlike. The Vegan with us also had a rich choice of food, and was more than happy with his selection. The main course was a little more substantial than some I have seen on TV Chef programmes, and very tasty. Desserts were also on offer, some quite novel to us (ice cream with hot coffee).

All in all it was a most pleasant and savoury experience.

We had Sunday lunch here recently, the whole meal was very enjoyable. Both tasty and well balanced, there wasn't a morsel I didn't enjoy, the bread was particularly good. There was a good ambience too, sometimes Sunday lunch times can be a bit noisy, but overall there was just a gentle hum of conversations, enough to give atmosphere, but not so loud as to be obtrusive. The wait between starter and main course was too long, it is more noticeable when there are only two of you dining, but that's the only negative thing I could begin to comment on.
