Stayed for 2 night break. Echo other good reviews and recommend without reservation. Room was cosy and lovely soft furnishings, bed was ultra comfortable. Food was very good and staff friendly and helpful. Only one small criticism in that no fresh fruit at breakfast.

We visited the Hambro Arms in August last year, the staff were very friendly and helpful and they took their time to cater for our specific needs. The food is pretty good and the pub itself is charming. We will be returning in the next few months so I would recommend this pub.

we have just stayed at the Hambro Arms and could not fault it the accommodation was clean warm and had all that we needed, the staff were more than helpful and friendly and the food was faultless and delicious. We would recommend this to anyone who wants a perfect break away from the hustle of normal life.

We stayed for New Year with friends and had a very good 2 night stay. This is basically a comfortable and friendly village pub with 4 bedrooms, though lacking a cosy lounge. Obviously packed for New Year, but good service from polite staff. We were particularly impressed by the excellent value meal - £35 on New Year's Eve has to... More

We had a mid winter week end break staying in The Capability Room.This, and the rest of the building oozes old world charm. The bar had well kept real ale and a good selection of wines and spirits.The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Milton Abbas is a delightful village and is wonderfully placed to explore the beauties... More

It was our wedding anniversary and we stayed there for three nights at the beginning of the month. Our Room, the Capability Room, was relatively recently refurnished and was delightful. With the new decor, and 200+ year old ambiance we were totally sold on the place. The friendliness and welcome of the staff added to it. A word of warning,... More
