We stayed at the Old Mill for 2 nights in April on the occasion of my wife's 50th birthday, and had a very enjoyable stay. Our two rooms were very comfortable although our son's was directly over the bar and quite noisy, but not for too long because the bar isn't open until too late. The setting on the banks... More

There aren't very many decent hotels in Salisbury, but this is definitely one of them. Superb location within walking distance of the cathedral, comfortable room, good beers, excellent food with sensible quantities (so we didn't feel over-full after our evening meal), and good wines to go with the food. What more could you want? Oh, and it's walkable from Salisbury... More

Was disappointed when mine and my friend’s bar meals were severed on wooden boards I'm not crazy about the fashion for serving food on boards, slates etc. For me, cleanliness is the most important thing and I don't feel that wood, even when treated, is the best thing to serve greasy or messy things on. I prefer nice clean china... More

Had a lovely meal here. The most disappointing thing was that the coffee was barely warm. I mentioned it to the waitress, but she didn't seem to be very concerned. Nice setting though. I'd eat here again but avoid the coffee!

Dear Yvonne Thank you for dining with us at the Old Mill Hotel. I'm glad that you had a nice meal and have recommended the restaurant to future customers. I'm very sorry about the lukewarm coffee and moreover the lack of response from the staff member, this is not the reaction I would expect. We hope to see you again... More

We stayed at The Old Mill for 2 nights in May on a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast basis. We were a party of 8 and made the booking based on the website, the photos and the reviews of others. I have to say, we were not disappointed. We received a warm welcome on arrival and had a drink in the... More

If you are planning a stay at the Old Mill Hotel by all means go ahead; Its a venerable building in an enviable position and our room was comfortable and spacious. The river, the water-meadows, the wildlife and of course the proximity of the cathedral all make staying here a really pleasant interlude - which could be made so much... More

there's free parking next to the venue and it's a 5 minute drive to the District Hospital in Salisbury. Beautiful location, in front of the hotel there is a big pond with the old watermill still working. There's a park and lots of very tall trees providing a beautiful picture. The place is in good state and all authentic, a... More

I have eaten here three times since the pub changed hands earlier this year. Once was an evening meal which was absolutely fine, the two others were during the day. Day 1. We arrived, ordered a drink and some food. Two starters, one a bar snack that the barman said he would bring out. 20 mins later no sign of... More

Dear Reviewer Thank you for visiting the Old Mill Hotel. I'm glad that you like our location and the setting of our restaurant. I'm sorry that you have experienced sub standard service on two occasions, this is really disappointing to hear. We have identified some teething problems as we grow larger and busier, which has sadly impacted your view of... More

This is a 500 year old fabulous mill building. The floors aren't level & corridors narrow & stairs fairly steep. Undoubtedly the best of old England I have stayed in. If you like historical buildings, you will adore this one. You have the river Nadder with it's wildlife & fish & the stunning view of Salisbury Cathederal just across the... More

Great food, wonderful friendly staff, especially Georgie our waitress. Beautiful scenic position on river and short path across meadows into town. The only slight downside to our clean and comfortable room was that it was directly over bar, so noisy until closed, but we still very much enjoyed our stay and will return.
