We say…

Winners of the ‘Best Restaurant’ award at the Northamptonshire Food Awards 2010-2011 as well as 2 AA Rosettes, Oundle Mill has a fantastic reputation for creating unique and stunning dishes using the very finest local produce. Situated halfway between Corby and Peterborough in the picturesque village of Oundle, there is no better place to head if you are looking for a countryside escape and spectacular food.

The restaurant and surroundings at Oundle Mill are nothing short of spectacular. The ancient mill overlooking an idyllic rural landscape has been brought into the 21st century with the beautiful oak beams and stone walls complimented with modern and contemporary fixtures and fittings. From the warm welcome you receive at the reception desk, set on glass flooring with the stream rushing underneath, you will be struck by a unique ambience and subtle beauty of the sensitively restored building. Diners are able choose from the sophisticated upstairs restaurant or the more informal bistro dining area on the 1st floor both of which boast amazing views across the idyllic banks of the River Nene.

The kitchen is headed by recently appointed, and highly talented, Head Chef Gavin Austin. Gavin brings a wealth of culinary experience and expertise with him from his previous positions at The Hoste Arms in Burnham Market, Michelin-starred Chez Nico, L’Escargot and the St Pancras Grand. His philosophy is simple; use great quality local produce and show it off at its best to deliver dishes that are delicious and unfussy. As he has worked in both fine dining and gastro-pub environments, the new menu combines the best of both styles of cooking to create a mouth-watering menu that is suitable for all occasions and moods, from the more adventurous to the tried and trusted favourites.

The menus change frequently to reflect the seasonally available produce but highly recommended dishes, when available, include the braised Lutton Farm spring lamb served with crushed potatoes, pea puree, pea shoots and mint jelly; home-made pie with creamed potatoes and seasonal greens; and the roast chicken for two accompanied by sage and onion stuffing, roast duck fat potatoes, seasonal greens, bread sauce and roasting juices which is not only a feast for the taste buds, but a feast for the eyes too. As a child-friendly venue, there is a children’s menu available that offers the kid’s favourites in perfectly-sized portions. The Sunday lunch at Oundle Mill attracts diners from far and wide as it not only offers value for money but also the best roast you will ever eat.

Oundle Mill is a spectacular restaurant that offers a stunning menu and fine produce. The service and passion that goes into making Oundle Mill what is it, is second to none so if you find yourself getting a little too comfortable, why not book yourself in to one of their well-appointed rooms and stay the night?

    Overall:

    I had said when booking online with Go dine that we were celebrating my son's 21st birthday - and when our desserts were served, the staff had written 'Happy Birthday' on his plate - a nice touch which I appreciated very much.

    Absolutely superb. Can't fault it at all. I don't normally do desserts but I still think about my strawberry dish regularly!

    Overall:

    the main dish of sirloin steak was rather dry and disappointing, I would have expected a green veg as well as the roots. the frangipane tart was excelent otherwise a pleasant experience

    Overall:

    My wife and I had the 3 course Sunday lunch special and thought it very good indeed. The only critisism on my part was that the piped mashed potato was heavy - not light and fluffy. Judy said that the spaghetti carbonara was the best she had ever had, and she has eaten it in Italy.

    Overall:

    We went for Sunday lunch. The choice was superb, I would have enjoyed any one of the 5 main courses. As a sweet, the spiced cheesecake was orgasmic.
