About Riverside Cafe

Locally sourced, freshly prepared, delicious, seasonal and healthy.

At Jordans Mill we pride ourselves on serving outstanding food in a very special location. Our Riverside Café serves breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and snacks all year round. On a sunny day there’s nothing better than sitting on our terrace watching the world (and the water) go by.

Children are always welcome, with colouring to keep them entertained and a child-friendly menu including a build-your-own lunchbox option and a child-sized cooked breakfast.

Afternoon Tea should be pre-booked at least 24 hours in advance. We will take your card details to secure your place and a 50% charge will be made for any customers failing to cancel the afternoon tea 24 hours in advance.

You can not fault the quality of the food and how it is prepared, however the service has reverted back to being self seating cafe which I feel takes away the difference between Jordan’s and somewhere like Rosso’s In Biggleswade. Also having my meal served by somebody who may have a second job as a motor mechanic didn’t do much for my appetite. We used to come regularly for breakfast but if the service and set up is the way forward for Jordan’s then Rosso’s will probably have my future business, and Rosso’s is just across the road from a very good cup of coffee too.

Very impressed, we were welcomed when we walked in and shown to a table, the young man went and got us some menus. We ordered the salmon fillets and they were delicious. The tables were cleared quickly without feeling rushed. We will definitely be back.

Lovely venue especially in the summer when you can sit outside on the decking and enjoy the scenery. Food nice but pricey and waiting staff a bit hit and miss. Found one particular lady who serves in the cafe particularly rude and unhelpful and no it wasn't a busy time of day !

The terrace is a beautiful venue for lunch on a warm day. The menu has plenty of choice and we all enjoyed our lunch. Afterwards, we had a walk around your lovely garden.

Table booked on line On arrival waited a long time to place an order After being told there was now table service we had to ask 3 members of staff before order was taken Drinks took a long time to arrive Breakfast was very late and part of the order was not delivered with the rest, so yet another wait No sugar on the tables and when we requested some 2 paper packets brought...enough for 4 adults drinks..No Staff member apologetic for the slow service when bill was brought they deducted the cost of the drinks Have to say on previous visits it has not been this bad, but will be looking for another venue for our family Sunday Breakfasts

We live in Witham Essex and we go and see my wifes' Aunty in Baldock, we thought we would take her out for lunch as her daughters do not bother to take her anywhere. I looked on the internet to find a place and came across yours and we thought how interesting as it's only a short ride from where she lives. We walked around the gardens which were great, had lunch and all I can say is that it was one of the best Roast Dinners that I've ever had, the service was first rate and the staff were wonderful. what a wonderful setting with the river and the Mill. Congrats to you all and in the words of Arnie ( I shall be back )

Lovely food when you finally get it. It was not at all busy. Waiting ages for our drinks as well. Food expensive but tasty. Location stunning especially on a summer day. Staff pleasant and friendly. Service just very slow and tables left with dirty plates.

Poor, disjointed service with no apparent organisation. Food was served before cutlery, sauces etc and we had to kept asking for things. One person had half a bowl of soup and sliced bread, not crusty bread. Was told we should have asked for crusty bread, despite the fact that it was listed as standard on the menu. Ran out of sauces and no french dressing in the restaurant yet sold it in the shop!

My husband and I had the roast only thing hot was the potatoes.meat was cold veg barely warm. Waiter who served us didn't ask if we wanted any sauces. Found out after he was new so maybe training was inadequate. After almost finishing then asked if food was ok. Then waited 20mins before we were asked if we wanted dessert. Food was tasty. Temperature let it down Always like to give a 2nd chance so will try again.

I had visited in the past and had always been very pleased with the choices of food and the quality. Yesterday however I found the choices were rubbish and the quality of the food substandard.

Lovely friendly staff and super delicious cakes. I asked for the vegetarian option but was only able to eat two of the four buns because the remainder were egg. If they were all cheese or a hummus option was available it would have been perfect.

Food was good, though desserts a bit of a disappointment Service really dire though! We had to ask to place our order for drinks and for food, and for desserts (staff unaware or unable to preempt service needs). We sat down at table at 1 and didn’t leave table till well gone 3. Waited an eternity for our desserts to come, and as kitchen not that busy and desserts were either microwaved or cold anyway we really couldn’t work out why it took so long! Final straw was when I asked to pay the bill the waiter actually physically sighed in front of me! A family birthday meal marred by poor service! Very disappointed as location and food was fine

we are regulars here and after our recent Sunday lunch visit, would like to point out a significant and unacceptable drop in service standards as follows: - It was not busy - we were never asked how things were - even after politely waiting for upto 10 minutes and flagging down the waiting staff, they did not clear the table of used items (basic waiting 101) - our order was not correct (ice creams too large), missing coffee (not charged for it) Since the system has changed to table service, I would say its not been an overwhelming success and would not grumble if it went back to the old way. The food was excellent apart from the poor choice for children, in fact there was no children's menu at all, just a small selection from the chef.
