Nice restaurant. Food was tasty ! A few things to improve on :

- chunky chips are better than fries
- don't forget requests from diners (our ketchup took ages to come !)

But small things. Overall pretty good

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.

    We arrived at the River mill at 2pm as per our booking... we had to ask for menus and there was only 1 left in the restaurant... we had to ask someone to take our order after siting there for over 40 mins... our drinks didn't arrive until approx 3pm.

    Food arrived approx 330pm and was nice, we waited with out dirty plates in front of is until almost 5pm when we had to ask for them to be cleared and ask for the bill.

    There was no apology for the poor service and no recognition.

    Clearly they are not able to cope with a busy bank holiday.

    Will most likely not return for food which is a Shame as the venue is great.

    After receiving our starter which was very nice things went downhill we waited over an hour for our main course staff kept apologising and we was offered free drinks when our roast turned up it was cold so we sent it back the first time I have ever done the replacement was not much hotter but stuck with it we had to ask for gravy as it doesn't come with it elsewhere in the restaurant other diners where suffering the same fate and some where getting angry a lot of people left and we witnessed other food being returned to the kitchen nobody really seemed to know what was going on or how to deal with an escalating problem such a shame as it's a great location

    have been before and had a good experience however on this occasion not so much!!!!
    service poor and while we were a table of 4 as the order was taken incorrectly 2 of us ate our meals and had finished before the other members of our party had even received theirs!!!! the staff were apologetic but unfortunately it ruined our experience.

    The River Mill is amazing, fantastic restaurant. The bar manager was attentive and knowledgeable, suggesting great beer and wines.
    The only disappointment was that a couple of us ordered a burger but the chef hadn't prepared any so we had a steak instead - not a disappointment in the steak but purely because it was not what we fancied at the time. The steak was really good.
    No complaints and we have booked to go again next week, would massively recommend and will definitely become a regular.

    Very pleasant restaurant albeit relatively quiet but it was a Monday evening. Pleasant surroundings and the staff very amiable indeed

    Food here was amazing!! Staff very professional, upstairs restaurant was lovely. On a beautiful day the location would be great. Couldn't really grade the ambience as it was the middle of the day and it was quiet and bright. Definitely recommend-prices were so cheap too!!

    The warm green bean salad was outrageous and the beef short rib was totally off the hook, but the thing that really made the evening was the attentive but discrete service.

    We hadn't been to this restaurant for quite a few years, and booked it mainly for its location. It has been refurbished since our last visit, and we were very impressed by the new decorations. The food also was of a good quality, a bit disappointed that the monk fish curry was not available, but my second choice the sea bass was excellent.
