Nestled on the banks of the River Great Ouse, and with al fresco seating gifting tranquil views, The Rivermill is a stunning waterside pub and restaurant housed inside a Grade II-listed former watermill. Inventive British and European recipes are served, as well as regional ales and world beers.

The finest seasonal ingredients go into the Rivermill menu, with light starters including baked portobello mushroom, feta and sun blushed tomato crumble. Fresh seafood is given continental twists, such as the medallions of monkfish in chorizo crumb, with chickpea and Mediterranean tagine. From the grill, there are succulent steaks, as well as homemade burgers with onion rings and sweet potato fries.

Sumptuous desserts at The Rivermill Cambridgeshire include signature Eton mess with Malteasers and salted caramel, while from the bar there are regional cask ales and a selection of international wines.

Offering a beautiful waterside setting and friendly rural welcome, The Rivermill sits 12 minutes' drive from St Neots Rail Station.

    Food was delicious. We were sat in the area behind the bar which felt cut off from the rest of the pub and lacked atmosphere.
    Only one member of staff who did her best but it made service a bit slow.
    We went on a dark autumn evening but I am sure the setting is wonderful on a lovely day.

    Lovely evening at the Rivermill, well cooked food, party of four all enjoyed their choices. Excellent refurb, polite and attentive staff.

    We loved the decor and atmosphere. Having a live band is a great idea. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. One of our diners did say though that her steak was a little chewy, but that was only one out of the four of us. The waitress, Madison, gave us superb service. She was both knowledgeable about the food and served us with both politeness and friendliness. A minor point - was it just me? It's just that I could not find a hand dryer or towel for wiping my hands in the gents toilets.

    Unfortunately The Rivermill didn't receive our online booking. Lucky for us it wasn't that busy so was able to get a table. I actually phoned the Rivermill that day to ask for a table downstairs because my husband is on crutches and they said it was fine so can't work out where our booking went!

    I haven't been since the refurbishment and it's a big improvement as the bar area appears much lighter and brighter. The food was great and the Waitress was very attentive and accommodating with requests for additional salad dressing.
