With a working mill which dates back to the 12th century, a water wheel and beautifully landscaped decking overlooking the River Avon, The Saxon Mill is a traditional stone building which has been converted to a gastro pub, serving a menu of modern British cuisine. The open plan restaurant & bar feature log fires, stone & wooden flooring, and open kitchens, as well as a glass window cutaway in the floor, where water can be seen flowing under the building.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Saxon Mill menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest available ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine, or spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Saxon Mill bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The Saxon Mill in Warwickshire is a 3-minute drive from Warwick Rail Station.

    We had a lovely dinner for 4, all of the dishes were lovely - especially the fish sharing platter!
    The only downside we found were the staff! We felt rushed - we were asked 4 times in nearly as many minutes if we were ready to order even though we were all quite obviously still looking at the menus! When our food came it was near enough "plonked" in front of us, and when it came to paying the card machines were playing up so we paid downstairs which had much friendlier staff than up in the restaurant.
    We would definitely return if the staff were more welcoming as it ruined it for us.

    We booked a table at the SAXON MILL RESTAURANT on line. This was our second visit with our friends. The meals were great no complaints with any of the courses. The lamb and steak dishes were delicious and the lemon tart and chocolate bomb delightful. A third visit to this fantastic restaurant is definitely on the cards.

    Food was amazing and worth every penny. Rib eye was succulent and the steak&ale pie was incredible.

    Nice restaurant. Good service. Good value. I had confit of duck which was fine. Waffle accompaniment a bit strange. But food generally good.

    First time in a few months in visiting; location and food was good, but the service was terrible.

    Inattentive waiters, far too many tables crammed in and extended waits for service on mains and desserts.

    Overall, disappointing compared to previous experiences.

    Great surroundings, atmosphere and service.

    I've been here a number of times for lunch and have got great service and great food. We came for brunch on Sunday with a reservation and were directed twice to the wrong table by a very offhand (and overworked) person behind the bar. A nice (but overworked)young man redirected us to the right place but the service ws painfully slow - I had to chase to get menus twice and it was 25 minutes before we could order anything including drinks.

    The problem was I think that the two young people manning front of house were all the staff they had. So generally I would recommend the Saxon Mill at lunchtime, but not if you want a Sunday brunch, especially if you don't like waiting around.

    On the food front, I think it was all pretty good although on my breakfast one of the eggs was really overcooked and the bacon a bit dry too.

    in summary - could, and should, do better.
