In a World Heritage-listed old mill, this “welcoming” fixture is still a “favourite place for a special occasion”, offering “amazing value for money” and food that’s “reliable and sometimes really good”. It’s “best on a sunny day when the new terrace beckons”, with its views of the “spectacular weir” and “kayaks slaloming”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
