Dine by candlelight as the waterwheel turns The Wheelroom Restaurant is small but beautifully appointed with ample space for 40 people. A light and airy room by day, the Wheelroom with its flickering candles is transformed into a romantic evening setting with soft music by night and the constant turn of the waterwheel behind the glass partition enhances your experience whenever you dine. Tables can be arranged to suit your needs, so whether eating alone, as a couple or with a party of family or friends the Wheelroom can accommodate you. Your welcome at the bar is second to none, choose your dishes from the a la carte menu or specials board, then wander down to the Wheelroom where our fully trained, attentive but unobtrusive waitresses will look after you from starters to coffee and liqueurs

We have eaten here before and decided to bring friends to this restaurant, as we have in the past always had an excellent dining experience. Sadly, I felt that this time round, it fell short. We were greeted on arrival, by a smiley and welcoming young woman, who invited us to take a drink in the lounge area whilst looking... More

We were married here in September this year and many of our guests commented to us that the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding. We chose a full restaurant meal for all the guests and the food and service were both excellent. Some of our guests stayed the night, although, as the hotel is only... More

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 course wedding breakfast which was cooked to perfection as well as an evening buffet which was superb. Highly recommended.

I was staying here on business and to be honest, just wanted to be fed and watered! However the meal was a really pleasant surprise! Absolutely delicious and huge portion. I had clams, then spicy bean burger (with the most chunky chips i've ever seen!) unfortunately i couldn't fit in pud. The restaurant was empty which was a bit of... More

Hornsbury Mill kindly hosted our charity event for cancer, the venue is breath taking, Rachel, Jane and the staff are very welcoming and go above and beyond in their dutys. Clean, excellent service professional yet beautifully friendly. I would highly recommend this venue for tea, business, charity or weddings. I've seen them host it all. 5 star rating from me.

Stayed on business at this place, very quiet and a little secluded. The grounds are really lovely to walk around. I had fish and chips for dinner which was really nice, chunky chips and lovely thick piece of fish. The breakfast is superb, I had the full English with a half piece of fried bread, (I know not very healthy)... More
