Went for a late Sunday lunch and not disappointed. Not answering their phone was a little irritating but I went on the off chance. The pate and croquettes were lovely and the roasts of beef and ham were also good. Wine list looked decent although I had a beer from their varied selection. The service was excellent and will definitely... More

Turned up at 11.30am to a sea of empty tables before us and then was told by a member of staff that breakfast is no longer being served! Not happy! Was not even offered an apology. Went out of our way to come here and not impressed hence... More

Having visited this place on a number of occasions, I was a bit let down with the service. The food however, was really good. As a group of 6, we all enjoyed our meal however, the only thing letting the Paper Mill down was the time it took for service. Not the fault of the waitress who was very professional... More

My first visit and won't be my last. Can't wait to return for a meal here. The location in the pretty village of Lasswade is outstandingly beautiful and once through the door, the decor and beauty of the establishment is quite something. We were met by a friendly member of staff and our table for two was positioned to the... More

Ate here a couple of times while staying in Dalhousie Castle nearby. Great choice on the menu, every single thing was wonderful, portions were huge (too much for either of us), prices were great and the staff were efficient, friendly and professional.
