Our bistro is open every evening from 6pm - 9pm. Afternoon Tea is served Saturday and Sunday lunchtimes 12 noon till 4pm and Sunday lunch is served 12 noon till 4pm.
We had a lovely afternoon tea at the Mill, mum who is a coeliac was very well looked after as were my sister, niece and myself. The food was plentiful and we agreed that we should book for all our family at Christmas. Lovely.
Thank you for looking after my parents on their special evening - they thoroughly enjoyed it, thought the food was delicious and will be returning! Thanks again!
The food was excellent. Huge portions! Beautiful location. Very friendly. We will definitely be back!
Fantastic venue and service, have visited several times for afternoon tea. Gluten free cakes are amazing!!! Would highly recommend and will be returning.
We had a lovely time at Little Hallingbury Mill. The staff and service were great and even let us take our dessert outside. The food was also very nice.
First class food with first class service, a limited menu but there was something on each course which suited all six in our party.
We drove a long way as I'm coeliac and had always wanted to try the Mill, but were really disappointed. The food was very average, basically just pub grub. Hubby didn't enjoy his mac and cheese starter or unseasoned steak (liked his brownie).... I liked the Camembert starter (although nothing different about it), really didn't enjoy gammon and chips and the parfait was half frozen half runny. Definitely won't go back and such a shame it didn't meet any of our expectations. Also service was slow as it seemed there was only one girl working the tables and the bar.
Absolutely stunking afternoon tea , the pimms was lovely very good value for money and the waitress was lovely xxx
Great food and service
I booked for a group of 8 friends and myself to have afternoon tea yesterday at Little Hallingbury Mill for a 50th Birthday and we had a really lovely afternoon! One of us had forgotten to order a gluten free option but it was no trouble and the waitress rustled up a delicious cake and sandwich stand for her without any fuss. The food was delicious. I had a gluten free option too and have never had such a nice, tasty selection as I had yesterday! Usually we gluten free people get a raw deal but not at Little Hallingbury Mill! We would definitely go back. Thank you to the staff for making such a lovely afternoon for us!
Very disappointed with the sandwich fillings, the coronation chicken was very spicy, not the traditional recipe and only one of our group could eat them! The ham was really cheap with hardly any mustard and I am not sure that the bread was even buttered. However the cheese and caramelised onion was lovely. The lemon meringues were not homemade, cases can be purchased in cash & carry and you just added the lemon filling and plonked a meringue on the top. Scones should have been left for us to add our own jam and cream, that is one of the pleasures of afternoon tea! Would have also been nice to have had tableclothS instead of a sticky wooden table. However there was ample tea and coffee. Definitely not worth the money and certainly not the service charge that I had to pay even though I am sure your website said this applied to tables of 6 or more.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent.
Lovely location and venue, although road signage could be clearer. Food was cooked and presented well and staff friendly. Starter and desserts prices are a bit pricey and selection of wines and spirits not comprehensive.
Arrived at 1.30 to be told only one choice of white wine and 2 red. Not really acceptable when the website says such a good selection. The yorkshire puddings crumbled to dust and when we asked for new ones the replacements were as bad. Felt sorry for the staff who were very friendly and helpful having to work there. The rest of the food was lovely but not getting yorkshires right in a roast ruined it for us.
The place was lovely, great setting. Food was delicious albeit not a huge amount of sandwiches. Cakes were lovely. Service was great. We we're topped up with tea as and when. Would definately go back as the afternoon was great. And recommend to friends and family.
we really enjoyed our sunday lunch with you and will definitely return . Friendly staff and lovely setting
We had a lovely Sunday lunch with friends. Good food, great service and lovely surroundings.
Very good food, also tasty gluten free and veggie options definitely will go back
Stayed overnight a couple of times before and always wanted to come for afternoon tea and really enjoyed it thank you for everything.
took my 85year od mother for an afternoon tea with all the family food was excellent venue and service very good would highly recommend this place . will be returning.
Baked camembert was a lovely starter. For mains the combo of yorkshires with salmon did not work. Parsnips were undercooked. Overall this was an OK lunch experience.
Lovely little place. Excellent service, very happy that they could accommodate me as a vegan!! We're looking forward to coming back soon 🙂
Sandwiches and cakes very nice and as shown on the website pictures. We were the only people in the restaurant which is why I've marked atmosphere down. Perhaps we were just unlucky with our choice of day for visiting. Overall £16.95 for an afternoon tea represents good value for money.
Lovely afternoon tea
A very nice and peaceful place!
