Attended on two consecutive days. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Food was faultless and very satisfying. Prices were reasonable and would certainly go back again.

What our customers are saying

Popped into this traditional style pub with a friend for a lunch snack.It was bitterly cold and the log fire was particularly warming .We only wanted a light lunch and a coffee and so the lunch menu was perfect . Initially having seen the sandwiches which came out in chunky bread with chips and salad we were going to go for that option. However we noticed the soup which looked really good for such a cold day and decided on that option. It was red pepper soup it came with very nice bread and butter. The service was excellent and the waitress incredibly polite.For just under £20 we got two large bowls of soup and bread and two cappuccinos. I would definitely recommend this pub was also really nice very dog friendly.

Fantastic staff and food, best meal we've had in ages

I can honestly say we've been to many villages looking for somewhere like this place! We arrived on Sunday to a packed out bar with a great ambience! All the staff were friendly and smiley, the best customer service you could ask for. The food was also divine, nothing was too much trouble! We will back very soon.

A fantastic venue for an 80th birthday party

With family travelling from far and wide for my mums 80th birthday party we wanted our lunch to be just perfect - and it was! I pre-booked the conservatory for 26 people and the room was beautifully laid out for us with flowers all around. The staff/chef were fantastic and so flexible- when our relatives from wales were delayed it was no problem, Our meals were all served together, hot, fresh delicious food which we couldn't fault. Amazing staff, nothing was too much trouble and on hand for every request. We can't thank you enough for making a special day very special- thank you to you all. Can't recommend highly enough but a perfect 5!!

Superb food, attentive staff and great atmosphere!

I took my mother for lunch and this was our first visit.

The menu was varied, the food high quality and the attention to detail was evident.

We opted for crab and fish and chips for the main course and shared a chocolate and orange tort with sorbet (more than enough for 2 well-fed diners).

The prices were very reasonable too.

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff either.

I don't usually leave reviews but the pub has earned it.

We plan to return.

Thank you!

Lovely place to Eat

We arranged a half way meet here with my Parents, and it was lovely the food was very good and the staff were very polite and friendly, what made it nice as well was that our little dog could join us in the bar area.

This is literally just 5 mins from the A1 and is definitely worth breaking up your journey, they also have a garden which I’m sure would be lovely in the summer (was a bit chilly for us to sample today) will definitely be back

Quality food, quality local pub

It is great to walk to our local and enjoy the combination of local pub atmosphere and good beer alongside quality food. Well done to the bar staff for the welcome. New menu is great and the sea food platter sensational.

Fabulous Evening

We were initially a party of 10 that increased to 15! This was not a problem for the friendly staff.

Despite being a Tuesday, The Paper Mills was very busy. Not surprising as the food was sublime.

The whole party enjoyed their food and the service was delivered graciously despite it being a hectic evening for the staff.

Top marks to Lee Gillis and his team for giving us such a lovely evening and for working so hard.

Highly recommend a visit.

I just wanted to pass on my thanks for the wonderful evening we had on Saturday. It was lovely to have a relaxing drink in the bar before heading to our table. The service was friendly and efficient and the food absolutely delicious. Please pass on my thanks to your team.

We will try not to leave it too long before we return and will definitely be recommending you to our friends and family.

Kindest regards

I was made very welcome as a solo diner. An excellent welcome from the bar manager which made me feel very at ease. I choose the seafood pasta and was not disappointed. It was hot and an ample portion but it would have benefited from a complimentary small piece of bread. Good quick service with constant but without-being over attentive. The beer selection was good with the offered opportunity to try the ales before buying. I chose the brûlée for dessert which was nice but lacked the promised taste of coconut, shame as the presentation a la flambé was good. I like the Paper Mills Inn and as I am staying locally on business over the next 6 weeks intend to use it frequently. My colleagues will love it. Good food, good service, good value. If you are passing on the A1N then make the small diversion, it’s less than a mile and worth the effort.

Staying at the nearby Haycock Hotel decided to try some of the local venues. The Paper Mill has a great atmosphere and a very interesting menu. Food came quickly and was excellent. Also good selection of real ales and great atmosphere. Wansford is a lovely village and well worth a few days exploring together with the local area.

Sunday Lunch and Rugby 🏉

We use The Paper Mills often but mainly to enjoy a drink with friends. Being aware that The Six Nations Rugby Scotland V France game was being shown we decided to combine this with a spot of Sunday lunch with fellow Rugby supporters.

We booked our table on Saturday, and although our numbers increased by 3 people a couple of hours before we were due to arrive, the staff were very accommodating and added another table to the one we had booked with no fuss.

The Manageress personally took our orders and we all enjoyed our lunch. The Roast Pork, and Roast Chicken were great, and The Lamb pie delicious. Everyone wiped their plates clean !

The log fire kept us warm and was attended to regularly.

Only negative was the noisy barking dog, but it soon went much to everyone’s relief.

Good food, Staff great.. Scotland won .. all is well at The Paper Mills

As we couldn't get any service from a local hotel we decided to get lunch and drinks at the Paper Mills.

Lovely open fire greeted us on arrival. Warm welcome. Food was perfect.

3 meals and 4 glasses wine all for £50 and a warm environment - not bad vfm!

Excellent food and service 5*

Staying away with work often means out of the way places (unless you go for premier inns--- no thanks). But occasionally you get a hotel in a village like the Mcdonald Haycock Hotel in Wansford (I am reserving judgement on that one until after breakfast tomorrow). The Paper Mills is across the road and delightful.

3 x real ales, at least one local, decent menu, even though a bit pricey. Recommend the Venison Burger, home made and delicious.

Great service from the friendly staff too.
