Set in a beautiful village, warm welcome, good beer excellent food. My wife and I stayed in the room named 'Capability' clean, warm and a good view of the thatched village. The service and care shown was brilliant.

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.

My wife and I and a friend were attending a wedding at Milton Abbey some five minutes by car from the Hotel. On arriving from Jersey by car ferry the previous night we were given a warm welcome by Mark Brannigan who continued to look after us for our two night stay. The rooms were of a high standard and...

We called here for a cool drink (or two!) on a hot day. A very atmospheric, old English pub, with real ales, good service and set in a lovely typical English location. Definitely worth checking out if you are in Dorset.

We stayed for two nights in this lovely little village pub. Chocolate box villages with all the thatched cottages up the main street. The pub was small but had great food. Very high quality local produce. We stayed on the Chambers room which I think was the smaller room in the place. Adequate but a larger one would have been... More

We stopped off here for a pub lip inch, what a find idyllic location. The food was really good and the pub decor was lovely. Can't wait to return and book a room at this great retreat. The village is gorgeous so quaint, a street full of beautiful thatched cottages. There was a wedding taking place while we were there,... More

My husband and I booked a four day break to the hambro arms last year. I was a little apprehensive as I had seen some bad comments and wasn't sure what to expect. But we couldn't have had a better time! The staff are so lovely, Mark the manager goes above and beyond for his guests, the room was very... More

This was a fantastic stay. The food was great quality, a reasonable price and really well portioned. I stayed in the Capability room which was full of character, extremely comfortable, had a TV with free view and tea facilities. I slept brilliantly. The building is beautiful. The setting is picturesque and the staff are superb. They could not have been... More
