Quite simply the worst food in Salisbury. Been five times as its a nice location and each time the foods been bad but on the last visit had to get a refund as literally everything on the plate was cold or burnt. Staff unprofessional and yeah, without a doubt, forget MacDonald's... This has to be the worst food in Salisbury.

Waited 15 mins to get served with a drink but left out of frustration. Disinterested staff couldn't care less. Don't waste your time

Very nice obliging staff but unfortunately the food did not match the service. I had a double burger, the burger itself was dry and tasteless. Looking for something to lubricate it I asked for some brown sauce, apparently this condiment was unavailable. I think £9.49 for a burger that was like chewing on flavored cardboard is a bit rich.

To be quite honest why I spent money in here I don't know . The service is slow and staff uninterested. Food quality is of a burger van in a lay-by. I seriously have had better food in a lay-by food van. Total waste of money. Management need to dead wood in the kitchen to obtain a half decent standard... More

My partner is a 34 year old civil servant, so are most of her friends. We came in here for a few leaving drinks with her old colleagues. The pair of us... More

Firstly, went there today not expecting anything special. But..........how pleasantly surprised we were. The location is in the centre of town but right by the river. I decided on a middle of the road scampi and chips. To be honest it was extremely good, best scampi I have had for many years, fresh, crispy with nice fries as well. If... More

Called into the Old Mill on the off chance, pleasantly surprised with quality of food and good service - tables were cleared straight away and staff asked whether all was as it should be with our food. Our visit was on Wednesday when the weather was hot, outside was packed so we sat inside where there was plenty of food... More
