You can explore the fascinating 300 year old water mill, restored to full working order. Visit the local history museum in the old mill house, bring a picnic or have a tasty cream tea on summer Sunday afternoons, from Easter to September. We are open all year round, Tuesday-Sunday plus bank holidays. We warmly welcome families and groups. There's always something new to see as we change exhibitions regularly. Every school holiday there's lots of things for children to do. We also have a lively events and activities programme. « less

Lovely place for an afternoon tea. Romantic little garden, the water from the mill is running close by. Mill museum is tiny but cute.

Visited with a lot of elderly friends just for a cream tea. What a lovely time they all had. Although we never went into the museum we sat in the garden & had delicious sandwiches , scones & a proper pot of tea. They then looked round the garden & at the old newspapers on the walls & noticeboards and... More

Small and original fully working water mill. We had a in depth chat with the miller who showed us what was what and told us the ages of various parts of the mill. He was very informative and we were sorry to hear that he was about to leave for pastures new. Hopefully his replacement will have the same amount... More

Really interesting to see how a water mill works. Staff are friendly and helpful and you can get a cream tea in the garden with scones made from the flour from the mill. Pretty setting outside and child-friendly Victorian room sets inside. Plan to go somewhere else as well though - it's only small. Hatfield House is close by.

A small but interesting and friendly place to visit. The food is also good, especially the bread for some reason!

This is a great museum built around a working water mill. On some days you can even grind your own flour. The sheer energy of the large wheels when they get going is amazing. Beautifully laid out and friendly, helpful staff and volunteers on hand. Great place for both young and old. You can get refreshments, too.

We live within walking distance of Mill Green but have only just discovered its value. During the summer months on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, there is an excellent set up offering very nice sandwiches/baguettes, baked potatoes, quiche and of course, cream teas! You get to eat in very pleasant surroundings and the staff are brilliant. We became members of the... More

We got to the mill and paid £2.50 per person which was very reasonable. There was a very well educated gentleman who chatted to us for around 15 mins about the mill and its history. The museum is not very big at all and can easily be got around in half an hour and that would be at a slow... More
