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.

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.
