Hambro Arms is set in the beautiful village of Milton Abbas. The decor was very attractive. The staff were attentive and helpful. The food let the restaurant down. The starters were good but the main courses were very average. Perhaps it was an off night for the chef.

Spend one night here in March 2015, the pub itself is a superbly classic old British inn with thatch and quirkiness. The food was great, I am sure all locally sourced, but the highlight for us was the tremendously friendly service. Such a pleasant change in this day and age. Keep it up guys, it really is appreciated.

The Hambro Arms is a wonderful pub with very friendly, helpful staff, great food and very comfortable accommodation. The village of Milton Abbas is facinating and the Heritage Walk around it, incorporating Milton Abbas Abbey, is well worth it.

I stayed here on my own, and loved my time here. The rooms were comfortable and very clean, and the staff were all so lovely. I did not have a reservation, but was able to get a room in winter. The food was great. I would highly recommend staying here!

Just returned from a 2 night stay at the Hambro Arms. The welcome was lovely, we were showed to our room and the facilities and straight away felt very welcome. The room was a good size for us and our daughter (6) and the en suite was huge. We ate in the bar/restaurant and as other reviewers have said, it... More

This is a wonderful pub in a wonderful location. Milton Abbas is stunning. The food here is delicious and refined. The Chef is clearly highly experienced. The Pork dish that I had as a main course was one of the best dishes ever. The staff are all charming. The rooms look very comfortable also. I did not stay.
