Where good times & good food come together!

Located in the picturesque village of Wansford, nine miles from the city of Peterborough, The Paper Mills Country Pub and Restaurant offers hearty food in a charming rural setting whether you are looking for a relaxed drink and classic pub grub in the bar or a more formal dining experience in ​the restaurant.

In the winter while away a chilly evening​ by our roaring fire with a pint of our real ale and in the summer enjoy a chilled glass of rose amidst the historic charms of Wansford in one of our many outdoor seating areas.

The stone-built rustic surroundings serve to enhance the locally sourced seasonal menu and carefully chosen selection of cask ales and fine wines creating a welcoming atmosphere for both locals and visitors
