The River Mill Pub

About us


About Us

River Mill is an old Grade II listed watermill set alongside the river Great Ouse and a small marina. Downstairs is the main bar area and to the rear the back room which is a dining area opening out on to the lower mill pond viewing deck. We serve freshly ground Illy coffee and a selection of fine teas. Upstairs there is another full bar together with a lounge area and the rest is partly given over to our restaurant. Outside we have lots of picnic tables alongside the upper mill pond and marina. To the side we have new Stella deck over our hydro electric scheme.

You can eat whatever you wish from our full dining menu wherever you wish to eat it. In the downstairs backroom and in the restaurant upstairs there is full table service for the other tables we ask that you order at the bar and then your food will be brought out to you.

Teas and coffees are available throughout the day.

River Mill is dog friendly and dogs are welcome in any of the downstairs areas. We do ask though that they are kept off the furniture and on the lead at all times. 

Our Philosophy

River Mill stands for quality, innovation and value.

  • We source as much produce as we can locally.
  • We prepare as much as we can in our own kitchens by our team of chefs.
  • We are free house and carefully cask condition local ales and select fine beers and wines from around the world. We pride ourselves on our massive selection of gins and other spirits

Sustainability of Food

River Mill is all about sustainability. We serve high quality food, beautifully prepared and fairly priced. We source as much as we can locally and only use sustainable ingredients. We buy fresh and prepare it for you with our own chefs in our own kitchen. We look to minimise our waste and recycle as much as we can.

The Future of the River Mill

We want River Mill to be simply the best pub restaurant in the local area. Part of this is constantly introducing new ideas and events.  In October 2016 we held our first ever Gin Festival and our first ever Beer Festival both of which were great successes. In November 2016 we started our regular Sunday evening charity quiz night and in December 2017 were able to hand over two cheques for £400 each to our chosen charities. We introduced our own genuine wood fired oven outside and in Summer will be back making fresh pizza every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

We want to offer our customers variety but recognise that we have to ensure that what we produce is consistently excellent. We want to be the local everyone wants to live near!
