Pull up a chair and get comfy with us at the Harlow Mill Beefeater. We serve top quality steak, from our tasty 8oz rump to our premium T-bone, you’ll always get the finest cuts grilled to perfection with us. We’re a relaxed, spacious restaurant on a fabulous spot next to the River Stort, great whether you’re after a light bite to eat or a traditional pub classic.
We know it’s a bit of a cliché, but our team is like one big family. We’re lucky to have such a diverse group of people, with new starters bringing energy and our experienced team members supporting them and passing on their skills. We all look out for each other, and it really shows in how good our service is. We know our food is always top notch and served to the highest standards, and it’s all down to the hard work of our amazing team.
The Harlow Mill isn’t just a name – originally, we were a working mill and a major industrial centre for the town. We opened as a Beefeater restaurant in 1981 and we’ve been at the heart of the community ever since.
Our restaurant is spacious and split across one level for easy access. We’ve got a spacious pub garden, a big car park and we’ve got booths which are perfect for family events or parties. Our relaxed bar area overlooks the river – there’s nothing better than dinner on the riverside.

Why we love Harlow
We’re in a great spot for exploring Essex, Cambridge and all the other exciting places around us. We’re just off the M11 on the way to Duxford, and we’re close to Harlow City Centre, which means we’re one of the most convenient places for exploring after you’ve had a bite to eat with us.
We’re only a 5-minute drive from Harlow City Centre. That’s only 5-minutes from the amazing Harlow Sculpture Trail, losing yourself in Harlow Museum and Walled Garden or taking a relaxing walk through the Gibberd Garden. We also have some delightful riverside walks right next door if you follow the River Stort, leading to Harlow, Sawbridgeworth and even as far as Bishop Stortford – a brilliant way to spend an afternoon and look forward to a delicious lunch with us as soon as you’re done!
We’re a Beefeater restaurant, which means we’re famous for our quality steaks. All our steaks are aged for a minimum of 30 days, grilled to perfection, packed with flavour and served with chunky triple cooked chips, crispy flat mushroom, juicy grilled tomatoes and peppercorn sauce. But we also know a lot of our regulars love our surf and turf, a lean and juicy 8oz* sirloin steak with jumbo prawns drizzled in garlic & parsley, crispy lightly dusted seasoned calamari and served with triple-cooked chips and a lemon & garlic mayo.
The Harlow Mill is, and we do the best Sunday lunch in town! With our Sunday roasts you can choose from our specialty roast sirloin of beef, rump of lamb, half-roast chicken or butternut squash & ale pie, served with all the trimmings and our signature red wine gravy. You also get unlimited roast potatoes and other delicious extras.
It’s got to be the Premier Inn Breakfast, which we serve at the Harlow Mill. An unlimited selection of the best of an English breakfast. That’s bacon, eggs cooked just how you like them, hash browns, black pudding, toast and plenty more with free tea and coffee.
We’re great for families, we have an open-plan restaurant that’s easy to get around, a kids’ menu that always does the trick and a team who are brilliant with children. Take the hassle out of your next family meal with us!
