So nice we ate here twice during our weekend break at Milton Abbas. Very good quality food, good menu and excellent waiting staff. We all had starters, main and desserts and couldn't fault anything. Dogs welcome in bar area which was a bonus. Thoroughly recommend it.

We stayed for one night at the close of this year's Milton Abbey International Festival. The welcome from the manager was very friendly and customer focused (offering to carry our luggage, etc.) Our bedroom overlooked the main (and only) road in the village; the bed was very comfortable, and we slept well. Breakfast was excellent - cooked to order and... More

Food itself was variable. a nice risotto but the vegetable lasagne was over baked , rather dry and very average ordinary pub grub. chicken ballotine a little more adventuorus and well... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hambro for a wedding and it was fantastic. Mark, the GM, and his staff couldn't have been more helpful. The food was excellent, the breakfast in particular was delicious. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. There is zero mobile phone reception but there is wifi throughout the pub and a weekend without... More

My husband & I stayed here a couple of weeks ago...the pub is a beautiful thatched building which is perfect for such an idyllic village. We stayed for 3 nights and had a lovely time...the staff couldn't do enough for you and the food was excellent. We will definitely be returning soon. I have already recommended the Hambro Arms to...

We ate out here twice, I dont know what they are doing but serving luke warm meals when the restaurant isn't even busy is beyond me. Ordered a steak on a Friday night and it looked like it had been standing too long. Then on Sunday with friends we booked in at 12.15 for Sunday Lunch. We were the first... More

Good food, well cooked, but very mean portions. I felt a bit cheated! The table service was excellent and the two staff on duty very friendly. The hootel and restaurant are in a delightful setting. Such a shame that we left feeling as if we had been deprived of a better experience for the sake of a decent sized meal.

A delightful pub with rooms (just 4) - delightfully friendly service and a very comfortable room. So quiet! All attractively decorated. Simple but sensible breakfast. The restaurant meals were good, we just felt perhaps the menu was slightly limited, but enjoyable nevertheless. The village is unbelievably pretty, and the great Gothic abbey church nearby very impressive.
