We returned to the Paper Mills a year to the day after our first visit. I had seen a bad review before we went, but trusted my instinct. It was our first anniversary and decided we must go back to this establishment. We were not disappointed. You feel the natural warmth of this pub as soon as you walk through... More

Lovely bank holiday lunch sitting in the beer garden. The food was brilliant and so tasty. Staff were polite and friendly. The bar and restaurant were very nicely decorated, will definitely be going again.

Seven colleagues & I went for a post X-mas lunch in the newly refurbished Paper Mills. The restaurant is nicely decorated and we were given a warm welcome. The menu contains standard pub fayre, with some specialities. Service was very good, portion sizes generous and the food well cooked & nicely presented. Booking is advised, as for a Thursday lunch...

Visited the Paper Mills over the Burghley weekend, first visit and had forgotten how nice Wansford is in itself. We booked a table which was perfect for the four of us. Sampled the Mezze, followed by Fish & Chips along with a Sagres. Food was excellent, value for money and great quality. Must also be said how clean this place... More

Used to eat here many years ago, never heard to the quantity of food to fail. I was pleasantly surprised and reassured that the food was fantastic. If I were to be a little pickle, our roast potatoes were a bit dry, but the rest of the food just melted in our mouths ! Defiantly would visit again and sure... More

We went on a Saturday night for dinner, early evening so before the rush later on. The menu was pretty basic and pricey on the whole, I eat everything but nothing really appealed so went for the burger in the end....which was dry and lacking in flavour. The so-called Hazelnut Creme Brûlée had no hazelnut whatsoever and tasted like an... More

I really enjoyed dining at this pub. There is the "proper pub" area around the bar, and then a proper dining section near the back of the restaurant. The pub offers a small selection or real ale, as well as the typical stuff. The food is fresh, and the menu changes seasonally. I would recommend the venison burger. As this... More

My first observation was the price of drinks, very close to London prices. We were a large party and attended on steak night. Food was nice but the order did get mixed up which resulted in 2 of the party having to wait for the meals to be re-cooked.
