Deconstructed Lamb Tagine
First Kiss as a Married Couple
My Wife and I recently had dinner at the Sheen Mill. It is many years since we last went there. I must say that it was an excellent experience. The food was amazing absolutely fine dining. Good selection of wine for all budgets. All of the staff were 100% on top of their game, and for sure they had all been trained to a high standard which reflected on their performance. We will be back very soon.
Mrs. Den P (Saffron Walden)
Absolutely fabulous! The staff were extremely attentive, the food was incredible and the grounds were lovely. Definitely will go back.
Mrs. Tara K (Oundle)
It had been ten years since we went to The Sheene Mill. We were greeted warmly by the current owner in a warm and friendly manner that you would expect with this type of Restaurant. Service and quality were excellent, a little “rest” time in-between the starter and the main which was cooked to perfection and exactly as we had asked for it.
if you want to be spoilt this is the place to do it.
Mr Justin Casemate (Cambridge)
All members of staff were polite and attentive. Now for the food. We had ordered 2 mains and 2 desserts. My wifes meal was lamb rump and was perfect. She said the best she had ever tasted. I had a piece of the lamb and had to agree. I had the pork which could not be faulte. My dessert of raspberry tart was very good and my wifes cheese board was one of the best we have ever been served. We will be returning many times. Camtrek (Cambridge)
We went to the Sheene Mill to celebrate my daughters birthday. There were five of us and we all had a fantastic meal. Presentation of the table was lovely, staff very attentive and food fabulous.
Would highly recommend, especially for a special occasion. Lovely setting and very individual. Hadhams78 (Hertfordshire)
My party was the 25th July. This venue was superb. A big thank you to Emma who organised everything. The food was superb, the venue lovely, especially at night, lovely gardens. The staff were excellent. I have had so many comments from my guests on what a fantastic day. Thank you Sheene Mill for making this a very special day for me. Mrs Julie Lean (Cambridge)
Was taken for Sunday lunch with friends, a warm greeting meet us on arrival and we were shown to the conservatory, unfortunately on our visit the weather was bad and so we could not appreciate full elegance of this setting. To sum up a modern day presentation of old school elegance and excellent service in a gorgeous setting. Top marks to chef Ivor Morgan and the young serving team. Jabba1965 (Biggleswade)
We had an intimate family wedding here in June. It was wonderful. The food was fantastic – Lamb with dauphinoise potatoes, perfectly tender! The setting was beautiful – fantastic gardens. And to top it all off the staff couldn’t be nicer! The hotel and restaurant are a recipe for success. Thank you to all the team, you have given us memories to treasure for the rest of our lives! Mrs Rebecca S (Hertfordshire)
We used the Sheene Mill for our works do. The venue was great and helped me organise a 3 course meal with a Champagne reception outside over looking the water. Great food and lovely setting. L4ur4852 (Cambridgeshire)
My wife & I booked a table for lunch to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary following a recommendation from friends. The service was excellent, but not intrusive, and the food was delicious. Both were beautifully cooked. Also the setting of the mill added to a very enjoyable lunch. We will certainly be visiting again. Nickpa67 (Walkern)
We visited this extraordinary venue yesterday for a lunchtime meal with family and friends. The star though was the meal and the service. The meal was one of the best I have ever had.The food was delicious, and the attention to detail wonderful. The service was really top class – friendly and atentive but not intrusive. We do not live close but will definitely be back – really hughly recommended. Mrs Jeannie K (Carshalton)
Confident about the quality of service and food, we took friends here last weekend for a Saturday evening dinner. We were not let down, great hospitality super service and quality food as usual. Everything is prepared fresh and cooked to order. The restaurant is going from strength to strengtH. Getabout01 (Cambridge)
Following the death of my darling husband I wanted to ensure his funeral/life celebration was something special. On the day the food was delicious and plentiful, the setting perfect, the staff attentive without being “in your face”, the room was set up just as asked for with the bits I had wanted placed on the tables. I would not hesitate to recommend. CambridgePudding (Cambridge)
We arranged a surprise afternoon tea for my mother who was 90. The food was super and the tea and coffee just kept on coming. The attention to detail was excellent and the staff were very attentive. I wouldn’t hesitate in going again and thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wishes for a dream location for any event. VALERIE880 (Cambridge)
Our wedding last month exceeded our expectations, and everything about The Sheene Mill made it a truly magical day for us, from the chic and elegant interiors, to the amazing food, and the wonderful staff.
As a wedding venue, we give The Sheene Mill our highest recommendation. Esianr (Cambridge)
Went for a friend’s 40th Birthday treat and could not have been more impressed. I went for one of the specials which had ingredients I am not usually fond of. However, I was very pleasantly surprised, it was delicious and cooked to perfection! Flavour combinations you could never have imagined all presented beautifully and served by fantastic waiting staff. I love, love, loved it and can’t wait to go back!!! CARSALS (Hitchin)
Sheene Mill hosted the Wake after my fathers funeral. From the initial enquiry to the end we were treated with such care and attention to detail. Once I had decided on afternoon tea and wine the whole event was organised very professionally. Everyone was delighted with a warm welcome from the staff and impressed with the food wine and service. An emotional day in a wonderful setting. Sarah W (Cambridge)
I have been to the Sheene Mill a few times and never have a bad word to say about it. The staff are always friendly and helpful. There is also a great selection of food and drink; it makes it the perfect place for a special occasion (they were great helping me organise my best friend’s hen do) or just a nice meal out. The beautiful grounds are also a big plus point. I would highly recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.
We went to Sheene Mill on Christmas Eve for a birthday celebration. We have been many times before and it has always been lovely but the food this time was eve better than usual. Our waiter Sigmar, was charming as usual and helped make it a really special occasion. Definitely one of the best in the Cambridge area. Judy G (Cambridge)
We visited Sheene Mill last night, 22 November had a fantastic time, great food, excellent staff and a good night all round. Ian P (Welwyn)
Myself my partner and another couple went for dinner at the Sheene mill this weekend and had a fab meal. The staff are always very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was lovely and the food was delicious. We had such a lovely evening and were made to feel so welcome we didnt want to leave. Will be coming back very soon! Francesca R (Cambridgeshire)
My friends and I visited the Sheene Mill for a midweek lunch. We were lucky with the weather and were able to sit out on the deck for our meal which was perfect as there were 4 ladies and 4 buggies so plenty of space! There was a set lunch menu which was very good value and offered a good selection of dishes! I will definitely be returning. HelenaM83 (Cambridge)
The grounds are stunning and the hotel is full of character. We finished the evening off with a pot of coffee at 12.30am in the snug after an evening of dancing. The rooms are lovely with fantastic views over the gardens (you just have to watch your head with the low beams!). If you are considering The Sheene Mill as a wedding venue , then look no further, it was perfect for us. Hadhams78 (Hertfordshire)
Had the most amazing wedding day at The Sheene Mill, the staff were just fantastic. Serena and Jordan went above and beyond with being so helpful and caring. It truly was a dream come true, the venue is so beautiful and Emma made sure the whole day ran smoothly and took all the stress away. I am just so glad I had such a fabulous venue for my fairytale wedding!! Thank you xx
If anyone wishes to book a wedding, you cannot go wrong in choosing this hotel. The location is perfect, splendid setting by a river. The food they supplied was fantastic, the conservatory was nicely decorated and Emma and her crew worked really hard to give us a fantastic wedding reception for our son and his new wife. Very well done to one and all. 10 out of 10. Alan N (Dereham)
Thank you to Emma, John, Jose and all the team who worked tirelessly and cheerfully to give us a magical wedding day. Our requirements were unusual – 17 guests for the ceremony and around 90 in the evening for the party. Many venues wouldn’t consider our request; the Sheene Mill accommodated perfectly and gave the best food! So glad we chose the Sheene Mill and wishing you continued success.
Really enjoyed a weekend stay there recently; the rooms, food, grounds are beautiful! Just as important, the staff were very helpful and friendly, nothing seemed a problem to them to try to accommodate your wishes. I certainly recommend the place and with family in the area, it will be my first option when i go back to the area in future. Just wish i could have stayed longer! stevebarr2015 (Coventry)
Lovely hotel in a peaceful setting; we were greeted by friendly and professional staff on our arrival. We then enjoyed a great nights rest and a delicious breakfast in the morning. Only stayed for one night but would have happily stopped off for more if time allowed. Highly recommended. Mr G (London)
Stayed for one night. Staff incredibly friendly, lovely room with a great view. Spacioos, comfortable beds and very clean. The food was great, quick service and high calibre, just what I needed! Would definitely stay again and plan to in the not too distant future!
I stayed here for one night with some friends. Had a great time, lovely food and the staff were really very friendly. Try and visit during the afternoon and enjoy the stunning scenery. Would recommend and will definately be coming back. Might even bring the wife. amiakeyorasemikey (London)
Normally I only visit the Sheene Mill at weekends but as I’ve always had such a great experience I took some clients, and once again the whole experience was throughly enjoyable.
Thanks to all the staff for their help to make the evening go so smoothly! Kipz (Northamptonshire)
We stayed here for one night and had dinner and breakfast. All the staff were friendly and in the morning breakfast was spot on too, all high quality produce again cooked well. The room we stayed in was comfortable and big enough with a beautiful view over the gardens, couldn’t fault it. german_kermit (UK)
Have been eating at the Mill for over 25 years, a most beautiful setting which the current owners are making the most of with some very tasteful out door lighting and investment of monies on this quaint property of a bygone age, often see king fishers and asbo the lovely swan, great lunch time snacks, well presented well worth making a detour for. 891Timi (Cambridgeshire)
This was my second visit and both times had a great stay and love it there and staff make it. Greeted as per last time by a friendly girl who couldn’t do enough to help. Even remembered me from previous year. Everything is brilliant, comfy rooms can’t complain. Breakfast excellent as was the food which I sampled last time :). Keep up the good work and see you on my next business trip to royston. Peter H (Heysham)
We booked a table for 11 ladies for my best friends baby shower and it was perfect, Sheene mill could not have been more helpful or accommodating to us. On arrival we had our own waiter who looked after us, offered drinks on arrival and moved the tables in the conservatory to suit and added extra sided table for us. Would definitely recommend for any sophisticated party. Katie_marie1984 (Cambridge)
Superb and helpful check in-had a few drinks in the beautiful surroundings -staff very amiable and chatty-felt like being in a friends home rather than hotel-retired too our lovely spacious room too get ready for the evening event-food was amazing -taking into account the catering was for 100 or so it was delicious-the 80s band were amazing dance floor packed. Cant wait too go back!!! Debbie K (London)
Wonderful setting and location, atmospheric especially at night when the ambient lighting is on. Open fires and coziness a plenty. Staff great and nothing too much trouble – even finding a you tube demonstration on how to tie a cravat! The old mill pond is staggering at night with clever lighting . Les M (Cambridge)
We had a great time at Sheene Mill and the food was amazing. Sieg was very attentive and welcoming. The garden is beautiful especially on a summer’s evening. I love the fish dishes. I would definetly recommend it and we will go again soon. Thank you! tammylucy (Huntingdon)
This was a most charming and pleasant surprise, all of the staff were helpful, courteous and pleasant right down to the KP. The food was fabulous – beautifully presented, well cooked and served with pride. The accommodation its self was a great place to relax, chill out and offered an ideal spring board into Cambridge or surrounding countryside for a variety of activities. Andy L (Maidstone)
I just wanted to write to say a rather belated but massive thank you for everything you did to make our wedding the best day ever. We had a fantastic time, and we couldn’t have done it without all your advice and help on the day, and of course in all your detail and organising in the run up to the big event.
