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 in Guys Cliffe. 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.

Customer reviews for The Saxon Mill
((*** 19 October 2016 by Jake from Tutbury
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.

Great business meeting and meal at The Saxon Mill. Good location and great food, offering a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. Will definitely be back!

Very busy. Poor waiting staff were trying their best, but they always seem understaffed here. Took nearly 30 minutes for the drinks we ordered at the start to arrive, then the drinks ordered when they cleared the starters away only arrived mid way through the main course after I had to ask for them another 2 times!
Food when it did arrive was pleasant enough. They had run out of many of the menu items.
This would be a fantastic restaurant if the management would invest in more waiting staff! As things stand, this really lets this venue down.

Atmosphere - really busy.
Service - great - but volume of people meant that it was slow, ulike time we have been during the week.
Food - Sticky sharing plate - suited us for 4 while we were waiting, very tasty. Roasts - Beef - would have preferred some red meat as we requested and offering of horse radish without having to go off and ask. Pork - would have preferred the apple sauce also to have come without asking and for it to have more acidity. Wagu berger - great. Desserts - imaginative and tasty.

We spent the evening at the Saxon Mill celebrating our wedding anniversary. The service was great and the food delicious. A little pricey but definitely recommend a visit, especially for a special occasion. Creamy tarragon mushrooms to start were amazing.

Everything very good.

Great food. Lovely location. Helpful and friendly staff. With a little more training on waiting the staff could make this feel like a very special dining experience.
