A variety of fresh salads, soup, cheese, fruit, and hot food were available. There was plenty to choose from, even for a picky 3 year old (5 and under eat free). There were three large tables full of a variety of freshly prepared salads (pasta, grains, and veggies), a table with soup, cheese & breads, and a lovely buffet of hot foods and carving stations. The dessert table was lovely as well.
Our waiter was excellent and very attentive, even with busy service. The hostess attempted to act snooty and aloof, she seemed a bit displeased to be there.
As a family dining with a very well behaved 3 year old, it's great to find a family friendly environment in a nicer setting.7/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOur table in the Garden RoomOur table in the Garden Room was bright and airy and had beautiful views of the gardens and historic building.

Service was great, food delicious and dancing lots of fun. Thanks for a great night!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful dining experienceAlthough we've dined at the Old Mill before, on this occasion the meal was one of the best my wife and I have had anywhere including previous meals at the Old Mill.
We were not at all rushed, allowed to order and enjoy our drinks and order our meals when we were ready.
The entrees were well prepared and presented and the taste was wonderful. The scalloped potatoes with bacon were a delight. Although my wife didn't feel hungry enough to order a salad, the very tasty (think one of the dressings was a chutney) and well-presented salad was brought to our table with two extra plates, and my wife couldn't resist. Same with dessert.
The staff were very attentive without being intrusive.
A wonderful dining experience throughout5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were seated promptly inWe were seated promptly in a bright section of the restaurant, which we appreciated. Dimmer areas of the restaurant not so good for older diners. The staff who attended our table were very efficient, and the woman in particular very friendly and engaging. The food was excellent with a good variety, and the person staffing the carvery was warm and personal. We were celebrating a special occasion and this was just the place to do it. It did get a little noisy when more people started to arrive, but there's not much you could do about that, I don't think.1/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
