The menu is simple but up-to-the-minute, with lots of comfort appeal, with homely dishes like pizza, steaks and pasta as well as contemporary, global touches to keep things lively; all delivered by friendly and cheerful staff. Their wine list contains well-known favourites, alongside little numbers from around the world.
To set the right note of fashionable sociability there are sharing plates, garlic pizzette with sun-blushed tomatoes, rocket and parmesan, a box baked Camembert with red onion jam and bread, and Greek mezze with taramasalata, red pepper hummus, tzatziki, feta and flatbreads.
Amongst the starters is freshly made soup, devilled mushrooms with chilli and mint on rustic toast, and Japanese fish cakes, pickled ginger, yuzu and spring onion dipping sauce with radish slaw. Look, too, for scallops of the day.
The salads - sorry that should read 'leaves' - offer crispy duck, mouli, carrots and spring onion with plum sauce, and for the seafood fiends some pastrami cured smoked salmon, Caesar, cos, parmesan, anchovies and croutons is received with enthusiasm.
These days no self-respecting gastropub can afford to be without its pizza range; expect to find margherita, a classic medley of tomato, mozzarella, oregano and basil, Siciliana with Serrano ham, roast artichoke, olives and mozzarella or rustica with roasted Mediterranean vegetables, goats' cheese, cherry tomatoes and rocket.
Pastas include bucatini carbonara with smoked haddock, pancetta and cream, or tagliatelle bolognaise, slow cooked beef, bacon and Chianti.
Scottish salmon with noodles, Asian greens, coriander, pineapple and chilli salsa is popular, a sign of the times and improving taste in eating and the spit honey gammon ham with creamed potato, parsley and truffle sauce is worth trying too. For hearty eaters there are rib-eye and fillet steaks, and lemon sole with prawn and watercress butter and baby potatoes. Other choices encompass Peroni beer battered haddock and lamb rack with spiced dukkah crust, char-grilled stuffed peppers and minted potatoes.
A wide range of supporting dishes include creamed potatoes, Belgian frites and mayo, and cabbage, leeks and peas. Desserts are some of the best you'll encounter with apple and frangipane gallette and Cognac ice cream, and there is also a selection of local cheeses to set the buffs alight.
For anybody looking for privacy, they also have the 'Warwick Suite' where you can book dinners for up to 60, have a meeting, or consider holding your wedding breakfast, perhaps getting married there since they are licensed for civil ceremonies?
Either call the General Manager to discuss your personal requirements or perhaps arrange a visit. More information, including full menus, is available on their Website. Please note that the E-Mail Contact is for enquiries only, not for bookings.

REVIEWS OF Saxon Mill, The
Karen (14 October 2008)
I spent a fabulous Sunday afternoon at the Saxon Mill with a group of friends, our kids and our dogs, a few weeks ago. The surroundings are amazing; we walked there over the fields from Leamington Spa, and sat outside overlooking the river. Most of us just wanted soup, and chips, or a mix of things, which was absolutely fine with the staff. The food was lovely, and the service was friendly, and faultless. We had such a great day that none of us wanted to leave at the end of it. I would highly recommend the Saxon Mill.

We spent the Bank Holiday weekend in Warwick and Stratford so decided to book a table at The Saxon Mill after seeing the reviews on this website and I'm glad we did as it was a lovely evening. The setting was lovely; the historical building itself is set next to the river with a contemporary touch. On arrival we were greeted warmly by the bar staff after explaining that we were late for our booking, not from the area so it took us a little longer to find, which they were fine about. We were shown to our table and the service was quick, efficient and very friendly to my husband, me and our seven year old daughter. The food was very good. Even though they don't have a children's menu they were happy to do a child's portion for a reasonable price. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very lively and pleasant. All in all, it was a very nice meal and if we are ever in Warwick or Stratford again we will be returning. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
